Will Houston go a perfect 0-16 this year?

Postby ampant » Sun Oct 23, 2005 7:26 pm

Has there ever been a team that never won a game? Ever since I was a teeneager, I always waited for it to happen so I could buy that team's hat, but it never happened.

It looks like this year I might be able to buy a houston hat.

they have a decent chance against the Browns and 49ers.
Isn't Houston in the AFC South with them? I know they can beat those guys.

Tampa went 0-14 in their first season. That was when they only played 14 games. I believe they actually lost their first 18 games before they won.

I really doubt that they will lose every game. Either a middle of the road team will choke against them, or they will play well enough to beat Cleveland or SF.

They have games with the Cards and Ravens, both teams that have shown the ability to lose to anyone. I think they win two games this season. Probably both after they fire coach Capers.

Cowboys went 0-11-1 their first season 1960. They didn't lose every game, but they didn't win every game either.

Late in that streak, a reporter asked John McKay about his teams execution.

I would say its unlikely, but potentially possible...

The rest of their schedule looks like this...

CLE
@ JAC
@ IND
KAN
STL
@ BAL
@ TEN
ARI
JAC
@ SFO

They have a serious chance of winning week 8, 13, 15 and 17... although, if it comes down to a week 17 showdown with SF, look for SF to have gotten good enough by then to beat the Texans. They're already rebuilding - Houston hasn't begun.

I don't think they'll go 0-16, but they'll do their very best to make a run at it. If they are determined and focused enough, they can attain that 0-16 record, just you watch.

I hope so. I really do. Once in a while a team comes along that threatens to lose em all. . . I remember rooting for the bengals to lose when they were 0-? like 10 or 15 years ago. They ended up winning 1 game I think. I was sooo pissed. I promised myself that I would buy the team's hat that lost every game. I have never been able to.

Honestly though, I can't see houston losing to the forty whiners. (I am so ashamed of the Rams for losing to them) :~(
