Here are the 5 questions from your friends at The Viking Age!
1. – Is. This. The. Year?
Unfortunately for the rest of the AFC, it is.
What we predict will happen is that the Texans will win the division but likely lose in the first or second round due to inexperience. If not then it’s win win for the Texans and their fans.
2. – You guys don’t really believe Arian Foster is better than Adrian Peterson do you?
Arian Foster has one rushing title under his belt. Foster will have to do it more than once in order to turn everyone outside the state of Texas into believers. If Foster ends up nursing a hamstring all season, Foster won’t come close to duplicating what he done last season.
3. – Is Kubiak officially on the hot seat?
Not officially but unofficially everyone knows its true. With Wade Philips being added as defensive coordinator the Texans now basically have two head coaches. If Kubiak can’t get into the playoffs with two head coaches and the additions to the defense that have been made, then we are fairly confident that he will be on the outs come seasons end.
4. - Can Williams be the force he has been at OLB? What is the vibe in Houston on the change to the 3-4?
As Philips has stated before Mario Williams will be lining up with his hand down in certain situations. Keep in mind through the preseason teams have only seen roughly 15% of the defensive playbook. Williams will be just as dominant. Super Mario’s presence on the line will also allow for his teammates to make more plays as he draws extra attention from the opposing offenses.
5. - Now despite Foster wanting us to quit our fantasy football leagues we continue to play. I want Schaub as my #1 fantasy QB. Can he go for 4,000 and 25+ TDs?
Matt Schaub has passed for 4000 yards the last two seasons. Schaub was also only one of five QBs to throw for over 4000 yards last year. As a fantasy QB you can do much worse than Matt Schaub as your teams QB. Schaub is a very safe bet as a fantasy QB. Go with Schaub, we did.
Bonus Question: Are the Texans ready to meet the buzzsaw that is the Purple and Gold?
It should be a fun game with lots of young players going lights out in order to try and make the team.
Many Thanks Joe!
