In 2007, the Houston Texans won eight games, their best season in the team's history.
Friday the Texans began training camp in Houston with high hopes.
Players said after winning eight, they hope to make their first playoff appearance this year. That depends quite a bit on how healthy they can stay. Many of the starters were out for long stretches with injuries last year.
"I think any team, starting off training camp has those aspirations and those hopes," quarterback Matt Schaub said. "Everyone should have that swagger about them. We're hungry. We had a good taste of victory last year. But we are nowhere near where we want to be."
