I wouldn't be surprised if we finished 2-1 to close the year. I think we match up well against the Texans with all their injuries, and the Bucs are in a tailspin. Also, depending on what they are playing for, the Saints very well might rest their starters. I see us drafting no higher than 5th, which removes Kalil from the arguement. A lot can change between now and April, but I'd imagine we'd have to look at CB, WR, OT, or LB in the 1st. Unless we have the chance to trade down, I almost fully believe we'll take BPA at this point. That means Blackmon, Claiborne, Kalil, and Coples are fair game in my opinion.

We don't match up with the Texans run game very well and they do boast the #1 D right now. I think we beat Tampa at home and finish 5-11.

I don't recall anyone ever suggesting any such thing. And whether you want to admit it or not, the brother connection does mean something. If there happens to be bad blood between them I'm sure that will be made known to decision makers and it will be taken into consideration.

Earlier this season I would fully agree with you, but our D against the run has looked way better with the combo of Shirley, Neblett and Kearse, along with Senn's play at OLB. Houston is actually my second favorite team to watch, and their defense is nothing to be joked about. Their front seven boast a lot of talent, including rookies Brooks Reed and JJ Watt. Conor Barwin has come on very strong after losing Mario Williams, and their secondary finally plays at an NFL level with Jackson and Joseph. You also can't forget about Cushing and Ryans either, both of whom are solid MLB's. Houston very well might have the best set of pass rushers we've seen since Indy with Mathis and Freeny, but with all that said, I like our chances. I actually believe we will make things tough for Foster running the ball, forcing Houston to use him in screens and protections. Foster is still very solid in those situations, but without having Andre Johnson or Matt Schaub on the field, we don't have to worry quite as much about the deep pass. Don't overcommit to the pass rush and ALWAYS keep a spy on Foster. The Texans will have to find Owen Daniels to have success, he seems to be Yates go to guy when he's in trouble. With all this being said, I think we sqeak out a victory over the Texans. If nothing else, it's a gut feeling.

I think this Sunday will seem familiar to Panther fans. Panthers compete early but the defense wears down in second half and running game of Texans take over.

As for the Bucs, Panthers should win easily unless Freeman plays. He seems to give his team a lift, not just from the QB play.

5-11 is probably about right.

I fear you're right on the first point, but anything's possible. On the second point, I'm not sure even Freeman is enough for them. They're just dysfunctional this year. I even read (on PFT, mind you) they considered firing Raheem Morris after the last game but decided to let him ride out the year.

Agreed. Just saying that with Freeman, the game will be closer.
