FOOTBALL IS BACK! NFL predictions, Astros playoff roster prediction & more: The update for Sept. 7

FOOTBALL STARTS TONIGHT!

The NFL is back and like most folks, I’m excited. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that – as a diehard Texans fan – I’m kind of “meh” about the season for the home team. The defense will no doubt impress, but with all of the questions on offense, I just don’t see this team being better than 8-8 and missing the playoffs.

To me this season has a very “NBA” feel to it in that I feel like we already know what’s going to happen to the Texans, kind of like we already know that nobody is beating the Warriors.

And even if the Texans somehow managed to make the playoffs they aren’t built to make a run in said playoffs, so it would just be another early post-season exit.

So yeah, the fan in me kind of feels like, “what’s the point?”

The radio host in me is just glad to have some football to talk about.
