    Our division is no joke now but the AFC itself doesn't seem too terrifying.
    Brady and Big Ben are a year older.

    If DW4 stays healthy throughout the year will the Texans shock the world?

    If the Texans had perfect health, I don't see it as out of the question. Need the defense to be healthy as well.

    In my opinion, the secondary and o-line just aren't good enough at this point to make this team a championship contender.

    If only we had DW4 on those 2011 and 2012 teams. That would have been scary.

    If you think the answer is clearly yes, then you can probably make a lot of money by betting the Texans to win the championship and then hedge that bet by betting Watson not being healthy.

    I think they would at least play in the Superbowl. Maybe even win. It would be the greatest Superbowl ever played.

    Lots of 41-38 games with our secondary.

    Next week against the Rams should be a nice test

    Voted Yes, but that's assuming most of the primary remaining players don't all drop dead from injuries.

    Yes, large assumption

    I voted yes, but obviously it's not as simple as that. If the Texans' defense gets back to where they should be and Watson stays healthy and productive, the Texans have as good a chance as anyone to win the SB. That's a pretty awesome feeling.

    You don't think O'Brien has the Belichekian ability to improve his players over the course of a season ?

    Brady, Rodgers, Brees have all been good enough to win championships with glaring weaknesses on their roster. Not out of the question that they could do it if Watson really is that tier of player that he seemed to be destined for last year.

    I consider this scenario entirely plausible but it doesn’t have a likelihood anywhere near rich enough for me to vote yes.

    If the Texans do win, BoB will be the WOAT coach to do so.

    If DeShaun stays healthy the entire season, Texans will be very fun to watch. I'm good with that.

    Ain't no way they win the Super Bowl.

    If history repeats itself, then we will make it to the Super Bowl this year, but we will not win it all until next year. Like how Clemson lost to Bama right after DW4 blew out his knee and then went back to the Championship game and won it the year after that.

    I put my money on that bet in Vegas last month, so yes, I hope we do. I hope Deshawn wakes up next week. We know BOB won't.

    We should have done what KC did and traded up for Mahomes, but we didn't. We have to just root Watson on, hope he stays healthy and hope he learns from his mistakes. He should look much better next week against a mediocre team without their starting QB, who we should easily beat, even with our lame game plan.

    He was terrible, he was indecisive, held the ball too long, made poor decisions to throw, threw the ball weakly off of his back foot.....basically all of the signs that a QB isn't prepared to play the game.....but it wasn't just him, BOB yet again didn't have his team ready to play week 1.

    Don't be a dipshit, I know it's difficult for you but try.
