    There are no Texans fans just lazy bitter Ex Oiler fans.

    They look over at Nashville and think of what they had. Yeah they got a new flashy team but no substance or history they might as well be Jaguar fans for all its worth

    I wish the Titans would've just started fresh when they moved to Tennessee honestly. It's great to have some history but it was in Houston, leave it there. Besides, not like we have any Super Bowls anyway.

    wow ...

    4 wins for the jags?

    That is being a bit generous imo.

    Step dad called me with some power rankings earlier and they were listed at 31 with only the Raiders being worse than the jags. I think its a toss up between the two tbh. The Raiders at least have their tradition and that Raider swag. They are bound to keep to that and pull off an upset or two, but either way I would be surprised if either team pulled out 2 wins.

    I still think the Texans will take the division but if we can play like we did last night, we may split wins with them. The Colts, we had them last year but blew it. I think we can take them and pull off a 9-7 record this year maybe making a wildcard birth. I mean at this point, Munch pretty much has to.

    I see us winning the division going 16-0, Colts 8-8, Texans 6-10, Jags 2-14.

    We are gonna be leaps and bounds better than last year. This is one of the best teams we've had since 2008. As long as we start the season strong with a solid win in Pittsburgh, I see us getting better and better every week. Our DL proved they can get after the QB and handle the run against a really good ATL offense. Having ZB and Ayers back will make our D that much better. I know I'm hopeful every year but I really see this being our year. The addition of Williams is gonna end up being what gets our D back to the top. Our offense is loaded with weapons and our OL is much improved. 19-0 FTW! Go Titans!

    I just don't see anybody shutting down our run game. That's gonna make it hard to stop the play action and passing game if Locker can stay consistent and accurate.

    I think we'll have a defense that'll create a lot of turnovers. I'm expecting big things.

    They really didn't look very good last season. We outplayed them in both games, but they found a way to sneak it out both times. They got lucky at the end of games and consistently pulled victory out of the jaws of defeat. They won't be able to replicate that. They also had the emotion of Pagano to feed off and I think that happened a lot.

    Luck really didn't look very good. 23 TD 18 INT 9 Fumbles with a 76.5 QB rating and a 54.1 completion %. In comparison Locker had a 56.4 completion % and a 74.0 QB rating. Luck just had more yds and TD in 5 more games. I'm a firm believer in Sophomore Slump for QB's and this is that god forsaken year for him. They had no run game and their defense isn't really that good. The biggest thing is that really did nothing to improve the team at all. A couple B and C list free agents and the draft didn't impress me at all.

    Also played a last place schedule and now have a 2nd place schedule which means they are playing 3 way better teams than they did last year. Remember when we went 9-7 against a 3rd place schedule then the next year played a 2nd place schedule and with almost the exact same team went 6-10 the next year.

    TL;DR The Colts will not be nearly as good this year and I think they will finish no better than 7-9. Already made $400 in bets on this so I pray to God I'm right.

    No better than 7-9 is pretty damn bold, dude. I don't see them any worse than .500, but I agree with what you're saying.

    You get a high five for your TL;DR inclusion.
