    I assume you're starting from NOW, otherwise the question is quite silly.

    I think he meant from the time of the Texans inception - 2002.
    Actually, not a bad question.

    I voted Dallas. They have the best chance to (i) win their division or (ii) get to the playoffs via a wildcard spot. Now that we have that down, once they are in the playoffs, I think they have a better chance beating the team they would be put up against (NFC team) than we would facing the Colts, Jags, Pats, Chargers, etc. After that fact, and lastly... they are a better team than Houston or Tennessee.

    Traitor!

    Houston all the way.

    You do have some good points though, the Texans schedule is bad news this year.

    I HATE the cowboys, and I hope they finish 0-16
    Unfortunately, I do think they probably have a better shot than us to get to the superbowl. NFC sucks and all that jazz

    Dallas though they play in the league's 2nd toughest division have the team to win their division and go deep into the playoffs.

    However their Defense can't keep giving it up in critical points like a girl on high school prom night.

    Actually, if we make the playoffs it will likely be as a wildcard, so we would probably face off against the Chargers or Steelers/Browns in the first round, assuming that the Colts and Patriots both have first round byes (as usual). Unless the Jags (or Texans) win the division, there's no way we could meet them in the first round of the playoffs.

    As much as I hate the Girls, I have to go with them on this one . I think the Texans will make the playoffs, but their lack of experience will result in a first round loss . Next year, thats a different story . :cool:

    The Titans have VY, that pretty much sums it up for them . :heh:

    the Texans can gauge where they're at in the season opener in Pittsburgh against the steel curtain, they also play the Browns in week 12 so we can check on their progress.

    If Tennessee & Houston make it into the playoffs one would expect them to be in a wildcard game & that Dallas would have won the NFC West so will have to wait having a bye week so they will be eliminated. That leaves Houston vs Tennessee who will also be battling each other for that wildcard game.

    Gotta go with the good guys :homer: Texans will be the first to win a 09 playoff game :wesmantexanfan:

    If the Titans and Texans are in the playoffs that means either the Jags or Colts are not in - which is highly unlikely. Also, the first round of the playoffs is a Wildcard team playing a division winner, not two wildcards playing each other. So again, there's is very little chance that we are playing someone from our own division in the first round of the playoffs, because I expect the Colts to win it & have a first round bye. We would likely play either the winner of the AFC West (most likely the Chargers) or the winner of the AFC North (Steelers or Browns).

    Also, the Cowboys play in the NFC East, not West.

    your right I typed in West when I meant East. also in this scenero both Tennesse & Texans do not make playoffs, only Texans who beat Tennessee out for the wildcard game by beating them in the regular season sorry for the confusion.

    Right now, going into the pre-season, I'd have to say Dallas. However a lot can happen between now and January.
