last year about this time i predicted the texans to make a run at the playoffs. most people thought i was being a homer and we are not going to the playoffs so i guess i was wrong. we are starting to play good football so im going to make the same prediction next year. so im gonna play gm and get us there. im not a college fan so i will not name exact players just positions. first round i get a lt, if spencer comes back healthy then we got two. if spencer was here this year my prediction might have come true. yes i think hes that good. salaam got used today, could of cost us the game. 3rd round i get a cb or safety, cant count on daunta next year. after that i let richard smith do his job, him and kubes have been nothing but spectacular at finding talent. you guys might wonder about a rb but i will put money on the fact that if you fix our o-line our staff will find diamonds in the later rounds to carry the ball, just like denver. in fact they are making dayne look pretty good behind a suspect line. next is,,,,, actually that would be first but who's counting, free agency. we need a center. dont know who's available find one, richard thats your job not mine. if we could get an olb stud or a speed dl-man than do it. if not just keep getting solid players at good prices like we have been doing. i would then sign daunte to a multi year contract. we could get him cheaper now than later and i think we would be willing to give him more than anyone else since we know what he is capable of. we have two qb's to fight it out next year. i still miss d.davis and could one team have more career threatining injuries than us. i remember the oilers loss to kc in the playoffs, what a lot of people dont know is we had somewhere in the area of 11 starters out by the end of that game and 3 were o-lineman. derrick thomas used a rokie lt takle for about 37 sacks. just remembering cause injuries make or break you sometimes. this year we were not going to win a super bowl so maybe this can make us even better. i feel good about next year. its our time to be healthy and go to the playoffs. you heard it here first. ps. since that guy from pitt gauranteed a victory and they lost, do you think he will give pitt fans, who went to the game, a refund? pss. dont work all night, watch the game, drink a sixer and then post. you never know were that might take you.
