First post on NFLUK and can?t think of a better one to get started on than here. I have been following the Texans for the last three years, this will be my fourth and I really feel we are in a position to do some damage next year and make a legitimate run at the Super Bowl, I think it tells you how far the franchise has come that a lot of people would nod their heads at that statement in agreement rather than raise their eyebrows and laugh. If Shaub had not gone down last year I think we could have had a serious run at it then, we were an experienced QB away from beating the ravens that?s for sure. My brother is a Ravens fan so I watched a lot of them on the gamepass and I never saw a team compete with them like we did at the end there, Flacco looked like he wanted to run and hide.

We have the best running back in the league in Arian Foster, backed up by one of the break out running backs of last season in Tate, the pair of them adding up to the best one-two combo in the league. We have one of the best defences around with pro bowl calibre players in Cushing, Barwin, Watt, and Joseph leading the line, which just got stronger in the draft with another ferocious pass rusher. We have the 2nd best wide receiver in the league, hurts not to say Dre is number 1 anymore but Calvin Johnson led the way last year and Dre got injured, got a feeling Dre is going to have a lot of built up fire in his system to release nest year- lets see who is considered number 1 receiver this time next year. Last season we looked a bit short on offense when Dre went down but through the draft and free agency we seem to have added a new dimension to our offense, got some fast young guns in, look out for Dwight Jones and particularly LeStar Jean to make a real fight to make the team, Jean was really imporesive in camp last season before he got hurt and the coaches loved him. We have Shaub returning, a guy that knows our offense inside out and has the quality to lead a team to the super bowl, however if he does get injured again then Yates now has a season of NFL experience including a playoff win in his locker plus a proper off season to take snaps as QB2 and get better.

Is that optimistic enough? I?m predicting a Texans Bengals championship game, followed by a Texans San Fran Super Bowl. Lets get ready for Ballsonparade to ride again, going to be a great season I can feel it.

That is definitely optimistic enough! Love the pick of Mercilius a great looking pass rusher to add to a number of guys we already have in Barwin & Watt and of course Cushing who I imagine will step up and be a real leader after loss of Mario and Ryans

Brooks is also a great pick but more impressive is Crick who if it weren't for injury would have been a first round/early second at worst pick. Got terrific value there

As for the 'soccer' last night if I was a United fan I would feel mugged by Fergie as I feel he bottled it and set up for a draw but Newcastle is an incredibly tough game for City so you might have lost the battle but wouldn't be surprised if you won the war in the end

As we Celtic fans say keep the faith!
