    New England = Loss
    Chiefs = Loss
    Chargers = Loss
    Saints = Loss
    Falcons = Loss
    Colts = Loss (1 of 2)
    Jags = Loss (1 of 2)

    That is 7 losses right there.

    Titans x 2
    At Baltimore
    Panthers
    Raiders
    Broncos
    At Tampa

    I can sell it to you. That doesn't mean you should buy it.

    We stay healthy while other teams don't. We beat the Jags both games (we should), and then best case beat the Saints, Falcons (I think we should win this), and one of the Chiefs or Patriots (catching them early could be a good thing).

    That's only 3 losses.


    And I'm not sold on the Chargers, either.


    The NFL is a funny league. Anything can happen. Hell, the Colts may flop.

    Why watch. 0-16.
    It's not like we have one of the most talented young qbs in the entire league.

    I could sell it to you, but it doesn't sound like you're in the market.

    Im glad you can see the future. Who will beat Trump in the 2020 Election? What the lottery numbers next week? Will Harden and Westbrook lead the Rockets to the promise land? Will Astros beat the Dodgers in the WS? How many Games?

    my guess is DW4 will be under extreme duress at the start, potentially even worse than last year

    that will throw cold water on whatever dim hopes existed for this season

    The Texans make the playoffs via their franchise quarterback and elite playmakers on both sides of the ball. Simple.

    If the Texans can be 100% healthy the entire season, and Luck misses the entire season, the Texans might have an outside chance at winning their division.

    Lets see...

    A notoriously unhealthy team keeps it’s players on the field. Those players not already solidified in the hearts of fans develop meaningful roles. The star players have huge years. The coach develops a better playbook and gameplanning, with a dose of clock management to boot. The team hires a GM. The owner becomes a confident, respected leader instead of a quiet, iron-fisted PR having, silver spoon sucking twat. The organization drops the cornball, kid-gloves, wholesome act and starts playing grown man football.

    And then we’d still have to beat the Chiefs and patriots in their house to advance towards real levels of success as yet unachieved.

    Right after pigs fly.

    Kind of why our FO is hesitant to give up a 2nd or 1st rounder for T.Williams.

    Deshaun Watson is the only hope we have. Sucks because it shouldn’t be like that. Dysfunctional front office and coaching staff.

    Luck’s shoulder issues resurface, the jags continue to implode as inconsistencies from one qb simply transfer to another, the Titans get tired of their coaches bs and quit in him shortly after an overtime loss that should have been a win.

    doing that doesn't guarantee you all but one win in the upcoming season.
