    Man, this is funny :cool:
    ______

    Reality is though, he said (directly from the op embedment), "hopefully, we can continue to be the team to beat".

    Sounds more innocent ... right?

    Regardless........

    even it WASN'T innocent.. if it was FULLY GUILTY and MALICIOUS... how about you talk whatever s*** you want, then go out and back it up??? :eek: see Draymond after Game 4 vs POR

    The real problem is, we (HOU) doesn't win enough.

    Be real We've had plenty players not say anything and we still lose.

    Hop is getting a little too lax during this offseason. Running his mouth just a little too much.

    Coach will get the bolt tightened back up once mini camp roles around.

    I believe Lamar Miller can make all the difference for this offense. As much impact as having Osweiler, even.

    And with a good season from Clowney...that defense should be boss

    I think the division is going to be a dogfight. Anyone but the Titans could essentially win it

    I really think the Jags chances are overblown. I know they went all out on defense, but they are trying to improve from the 2nd worst defense in the NFL so even though it'll be better, will it be league average? I'm not sold yet.

    I think a lot comes down to which Andrew Luck the Colts are going to get, either way, the Texans are the team to beat.

    Why is this even news? Reading his complete quote, he starts it with "I FEEL we've earned that title" (to be the team to beat in the AFC South). He finishes the quote with - "Hopefully, we can continue to be the team to beat".

    Extremely tame stuff and not worthy of any bulletin board material.

    If the Jags had an average defense last year with NFL average of points allowed, they would have had a positive point differential. Since 2012, every NFL team but 1 with a positive point differential was 8-8 or better. (Detroit was 7-8 in 2013).

    Also, Jags were 11th in offense last year, better than any other South team. They could also easily get better on offense where they have not lost anyone, where all their younger players have another year of experience and in the same offensive system.

    Sure, they have to prove it, but saying the Jags chances are overblown is ignoring the whole picture.
