You know we are deep in the offseason when the discussion posts come home to roost. In this entry, Texans fans talk about what equates to a successful season for the local football team in 2017.

A little more than a year ago, when I was similarly scraping the bottom of the barrel for post ideas, I asked you what had to happen for you to consider the 2016 season a successful one for your Houston Texans. At the time, the plurality of those who voted defined success in 2016 as the Texans winning a playoff game. The Texans did just that, beating the Raiders in the Wild Card Round before falling to the Patriots in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs.

A year later, with a rookie hope at QB (albeit one who may not see the field this year), I ask you anew: What would you consider a successful season for the Texans in 2017? A playoff appearance? A third consecutive division title? A single playoff victory? A berth in the AFC Championship Game? A conference championship game win and a Super Bowl appearance? Or are you one of those fans who believe there’s only one truly successful team each season, with the 31 other organizations all rendered runners-up?

Cast your vote in the poll below and discuss why you feel that way in the Comments.
