Default Texans Thread

Is it me, or does anyone feel the texans aren't going to the playoffs thiscoming season?

Yes, slightly pessimistic i know, but lets face it, David Carr needs full plate armour to protect himself from getting sacked.

I mean its not going to be a disaster season, but I'm thinking... 8-8?

What does everyone else think?

The Texans could be a dark horse this season, Carr to Johnson is becoming a household phrase and your defence has improved greatly. A few decent FA/draft pickups and the Texans may gain a WC and have a chance at the playoffs.

8-8 would be my tip if they stand pat; if they can beef up the O-Line, it could be the difference between .500 mediocrity and a Wild card.

Of recent expansion teams, Carolina and Jacksonville both went to the playoffs in their second seasons and Cleveland went in its 4th. So if they don't make it this year they will be the slowest expansion team to have made the playoffs since.......I'll let someone else answer that.

Orakpo is interesting because maybe he can play as a Willie, but he will unfortunately not fall far enough. Brown seems more of a straightforward DE, so I think with the signing of Smith, he's unlikely. And he's not going to be there when the Texans pick either.

If he falls, I think the Texans go for USC's Brian Cushing.

If not, look for them to consider Vontae Davis from Illinois to address the needs in the secondary.

The other interesting choices include a tandem of receivers: Darrius Heyward-Bey and Percy Harvin (who could be the Reggie Bush type that could take some of the heat off of Slaton and the big receivers).

orakpo and browns only difference is 2 inches and 5ilbs in height & weight so i hardly think it matters. neither are 4-3 olbs im

not a fan of davis

not a chance of taking a receiver i personally garauntee it. no hope. we have david anderson anyway

I think that the Texans will have their best season in Franchise history, but with the Colts still being strong and the Jags looking like they will be really good, I think 3rd place in the division will be the best they can do.
