The Cowboys, hands down. I hate those guys. :mad: Every time we face them Im looking for a battle. :fight: :slap: And I hate that "Americas Team" thing. Houston should be "Americas Team" next time we play them im looking fir a blowout.

I'd say either the Jags. cause that sereis is tied 2-2 :fight: or it could be the Titans(former Oliers). Srry about a bit off topic Hey I wonder in our division is it:
Cots-Titans,

Titan's-Texans

Texans-Titans?

i think we all hate dallas the most but since we'll rarely play them, i think/hope we build up a rivalry with the titans for the simple fact that there's so much history & bad blood (on our side atleast).

2nd the Cowgirls

3rd the Patriots and their Rude obnoxious Chowder Head Fans! :ninja:

For the Texans.. I'd say the Jags.. mainly because they have beaten us and we have beaten them.

titans and colts.. possibly after this season..when we beat them and cost one of them a AFC south title ;)

As far as the Cowboys.. I think that one is the ones for the State of Texas fans,but we don't play them every year so it will take some time with the team to get a rivalry.

Cowboys? I just can't consider a team we play twice a decade a "heated rival". How can you have a big rivalry with a team you rarely play? Rivals are formed when you have something on the line and another team takes something important from you. This just isn't going to happen unless we meet in the Super Bowl.

Someone in our division will be our biggest rival in due time, and right now I consider the Titans one for obvious reasons.

05-11-2004, 07:31 PM
I'm going to go with the Jag-offs... It's ALMOST always a close game every time we play, they are in the division, and they are a young, rising team like us. The series is tied 2-2.

Dilbert R.
05-11-2004, 07:34 PM
The Titans! How crushing was that 4th down TD throw from McNair to Bennet? We have got to beat them. I'd say the Titans, J'ville, Colts, and then the Cowboys.

05-11-2004, 07:37 PM
That did hurt, but what was worse is that our cover man was flat on his face when Bennett caught that.

I don't really think you could include the Cowboys, hey at least they are in Texas. I would have to say the Titans. The fact that a lot of people look at the Texans as the "other" franchise to come from Houston really gets my goat. The Titans are, to me, the most hated team on the planet (aside from the ****ing Patriots).

TexansFanatic
05-11-2004, 09:15 PM
How could the most hated rival be any team other than the Titans?

It takes time to develop rivalries and your biggest rivals are those teams, usually from your own division, that you find yourself with most often in important games (games played for a division title or playoff berth). Often times, your biggest rival is the team that beats you in those games more often than you beat them. Ask titans fans who their biggest rival is (at least was) and many of them will say the Ravens. Why? Because the Ravens beat them in a couple of very big games in recent years. They may start to develop the same "envy/hate" attitude toward Indy unless they can start beating them again.

As far as the Texans, it's too early to tell, but the Tennessee thing is big for many for obvious reasons. It's the team most Texans fans dearly want to beat. But it's more of a one-way rivalry (until we can start beating them in important games and getting them to hate us as well). Same with Indy. There's nothing there yet for the Texans in terms of rivalry - other than two losses per year. If there's been a rivalry in these first two seasons, it would have to be Jax since we were fighting with them to stay out of last place.

I see the AFC South changing a little in the coming years and there will likely be a more heated race between all four teams instead of just two. That's when some real rivalries will emerge.

As far as Dallas, your most heated or hated rival can't be a team that you play only once every four years.

Hate is a little harsh, rivals all the above. The big trade with ex-oilers seems to suggest they are at least on speaking terms & helped each other in the process.

Jacksonville & the Texans are closley tracking each other & also consumated a major deal (expansion draft) for the betterment of both teams. I really like the make-up of both teams and these should be barnburners for years to come. A great rivalry.

The one team that doesn't fit at least not in the South is the New England Patriots. No help here, unless you consider the reason the Texans where promted to make the trade when they did for what they gave up was because they recieved sources indicating the Patriots wanted Babin to add to their already punishing defense. But we won't meet them unless its in the play-offs & at New England so thats really not a rivalry.

Guess its a toss up between the Titans & Jaguars. The Titans on the way down and the Jaguars on the way up. Only time will tell for sure :popcorn:

Titans (look up at the avatar :evilb:, got to love that moment) are the most hated with the Cowgirls a close 2nd and the Jags at 3.

That did hurt, but what was worse is that our cover man was flat on his face when Bennett caught that.

To me what was worse was McNair having time to sit back and sign autographs before he threw the ball. I can't or don't expect ANY defensive back to be able to keep up with a reciever with THAT much time for an NFL MVP candidate to be given that much time to throw the ball

05-12-2004, 12:10 AM
I don't think you have to play the cowgirls in the regular season every year to have a rivalry, from the fans prospective. The fact that so many girls fans are in the area leads to a lot of barbs flying. There's no team I get more joy from watching them lose than Dallas.

Tennessee? I should dislike them more, but it's hard because I still have respect for McNair & George. Of course I abhor Bud, but you really don't see him associated with the Titans as he was with the Oilers. Lucky Titan fans.

As far as who the team probably views as their main rival, I'd have to say Jacksonville. Except for the Ragone/Hollings game, all of the Texans/Jags games have been very close. Come to think of it, there's nothing about Jacksonville I like. The city, the players, the coaches, the fans...I don't like any of them. Why is Jacksonville in the NFL anyway?

WWJD
05-12-2004, 12:29 AM
The Titans and Jags are the Texans biggest rivals.

Cowboys no. They're not in the same division or even the same conference.

Now if the league realigns and puts more teams that are geographically close in the same division then yes.
But that's not happening from all I've read. The NFL likes the long time battles that have developed over the years and they're all about tradition.

I think everyone hates the cowboys more than the titans. If you could have one win, over either the titans or cowboys, I would choose dallas.

WWJD
05-12-2004, 02:03 PM
That may make sense on an emotional level..the Cowboys "hate" I mean...but it doesn't make sense on a team level. The Titans are a division team and that means so much more than a team you play every few years.

Point taken though.

El Tejano
05-12-2004, 02:33 PM
Well I still hate the Steelers but I guess that really has nothing to do with the Texans as much as the Oilers. I would say All The Division Opponents since we haven't beaten the Colts or Titans and are tied with the Jags. And just to add a cherry on top the Cowgirls.

TexansJunkE
05-12-2004, 02:42 PM
I think many people want it to be the Titans, but I think the Titans are on the downward spiral. I think it will be the Jags. We are both young teams with each a disappointing loss towards each other.

WWJD
05-12-2004, 02:52 PM
I think as long as the Titans have Steve McNair that they will be a team to be reckoned with. The guy can carry a team on his shoulders. Barring injuries, which he seems to have a ton of, I don't see them falling off much really. They are well coached. I think this will be "THE" rivalry for some years for the Texans.

Nawzer
05-12-2004, 02:55 PM
I don't know if we've been long enough in this league to have a "hated" opponent. We have some budding rivalries with the Jags and Titans but maybe this year if we win some of these division games against the Colts and Titans, they'll start hating us pretty soon.

El Tejano
05-12-2004, 03:06 PM
You know now that I think of it. We have a score to settle with Chris Bennett. I hate the Titans.

caspian
05-12-2004, 03:08 PM
I relish beating Dallas with the in-state rivalry going, but I root for the Cowboys as a Texas team if the Texans are out of the picture.

I'd say the biggest rivals are the Cowboys...and they are a worthy opponent, given their history and branding. Now, if we can get their attention this year again to show that we're a worthy opponent..?

This is obviously from that camp of people who like the Texans because of their Texas-ness vs. those who like the Texans for their Houston-ness (and perhaps hate the Titans cuz of their "anti-Houston-ness").

I have no ties or loyalties to Houston, the city, per se...just Texas.

Who is Bennett with now? I'm surprised the Titans would let him go.

Blake
05-12-2004, 04:33 PM
I don't think he's with the Titans any longer.

If we are talking about Drew Bennett then, yes, he is with the Titans. The only starters the titans lost were the 2 defensive players, and McCareins.

Dallas is easy to hate for more reasons than just the Cowboys. The city is nothing more than a home for self centered, egotistical, L.A. wanna bes'. I have nothing against the Titans team except that they are division rivals with the exception of one fat, rug wearing blackmailer. On a competetive level, I think the Jags are bigtime rivals because of our record against each other and the cheap shots by certain Jags players.

A Texan
05-13-2004, 08:41 AM
I think the teams we like to beat are the Titans first, then the Cowboys. Both have lousy owners. I used to like the Cowboys fairly well before Jerry, who has no class. Jacksonville is next in my mind since they once tried to get the Oilers.

KingRat
05-13-2004, 09:07 AM
To look at this from another perspective, who's toes have we stepped on just trying to scratch out a few wins? Who is out there starting to hate us?

Dallas for sure, because we can always go 'scoreboard' on them, for 4 years.
Miami maybe, because we started there year off on a sour note last year, at home no less, and they came up about one game shy of the playoffs.
Pittsburgh, because we blew them up, defensively at least, on their turf.
We beat Buffalo there, but they were having a sorry season anyway.

any others?

WWJD
05-13-2004, 09:11 AM
I don't think Jerry Jones is very classy either but he does seem to have a way to get things done.

And I'm going to dodge the flames thrown here but I've never thought Bud Adams was a bad owner either. I don't like the move either and Houston got took...but he, as far as I know, lets the football guys run the team and he stays out of all that.

The owners are a breed unto themselves. They are going to do what is best for their pocketbook. Some are more classy and some are less. But you find that if you work at the Stop and Go.

I really believe the Titans are our biggest rivalry,but on a personal note since I live with a chiefs freak,it is becoming a big game at our house and living in a town of about 10,000 people and 90% of them being chiefs fans it gives me a little different insight,I am the only Texans fan in this town and I get a lot of **** when We play the Chiefs,and I would love to beat them this year in Arrowhead Stadium. :fight: TOROTOONS WHERE COWBOYS AND TITANS SUCK (http://www.torotoons.com/)

the last team the jags think about is the texans although the team looks up to jax in how they handled the expansion and carolina, the titans are the jags big rival they hate eachother

i dont personally know that the texans already have a heated rival just wondering who will be their biggest rival


whats up with the wise crack about the superbowl being in jax??????

I like the Jags to be our chief rivals. I think both teams are rising at the same time.

I obviously was kidding about the Cards. The Cardinals have been around for what 80+ years and they really do not have a rival? I guess you have to win for another team to hate you.

Looking back on the season now.

our rivals
Jags.. to me we have solidified a rivalry this season.. we knocked them out of playoff contention. This is our rivalry no question.. Think back of all the vicious hits they have laid on us and what we have laid on them. Plus we still have players from their team (Payne,Walker)

Colts... running up the score accusations against us the 1st time has got our blood boilng

Cowboys.. Football is big in Texas and Bragging rights are a big thing here. Besides Cowboys have always been the pride and joy of Texas.. Houston teams seem to be "step child" of the Texas media. Dallas was always the good son (winning superbowls) and Houston is known as the bad son that did things wrong (losing in playoffs)

Titans.. IMO only to the fans. Yes they are division rivals, but it isn't like Cleveland -Ravens... When I think of Titan-Texan rivalry... it is along the lines of the Colts and Raven's rivalry..but a step above being we play the titans twice a year.. if the Titans were in playoff contention this season and we knocked them out (or vise versa) then a rivalry would develope.. BTW is McNair the only one left know of the Oiler days?

beerlover
02-20-2005, 01:22 PM
I'd generally agree with Wolf, with the exception of the Colts because scoreboard we are 0-6 against them & until we can at least split the season and influence the playoffs vs them its just another conference game.

the Jags gotta be hating the Texans however, having directly snuffed out their playoffs last year in the process sweeping them like sand under the rug.

Texans Pride
02-20-2005, 01:54 PM

02-20-2005, 02:01 PM
I still hate the cowboys but i believe KC is turning into a big rival not the biggest yet,so lets say the Titans right now juse because of the history of them,ofcourse that might also just be me because after they left Houston i didn't follow and had to go without a football till the Texans came along

Grid
02-20-2005, 02:13 PM
id definatly say the Jags. The Cowboys and Titans are a fan thing..we like to see them get beaten by our team.. but the Jags are a fan thing AND a player thing. The Texans players dont like the jags much either.. and you can see it when these two teams play.

Texans Vs. Jaguars is definatly our biggest rivalry right now, and I look forward to it twice a year for years to come :)

TMac48
02-20-2005, 02:28 PM
What's wrong with you people???
The Jags are obviously our biggest rival! Hasn't anybody seen the last two games we've played against them at reliant. There was a fight after every play in the last quarter. We hate 'em. They hate us. I make it a point to attend at least that game every year. They had me so pi$$ed this year I wanted to jump out of the stands. (figured Kris Brown might need a little help with that d-lineman he got into it with)

Rivaled .. 1. Jags - because of their fans mostly (99.5% of them anyway)
... as for the team itself, they will need to step it up a notch if they want to rival us!
Hated .. 2. Colts - because they are so standoff-ish and unloveable. :)

Jags hands down. It is sure fun to post SCOREBOARD, OWNED or 41-6 over on their homey board. :whistle: Sure starches their panties. :woot
Grid, Sassy, Wolf and TMac make great points. I like the rabidity (is that a real word?) of Texans Pride. :thumbup

TEXANS84
02-21-2005, 01:53 PM
I'd say either the Jags. cause that sereis is tied 2-2



Texans lead the series 4-2.

There can't be a rivalry between two teams that play each other once every 4 years. Heated, yes...but not with that playing gap.

Rivalries are built within the conference....and Jax gets the vote from me.

02-21-2005, 08:33 PM

Rivals are formed when you have something on the line and another team takes something important from you. This just isn't going to happen unless we meet in the Super Bowl.

Exactly. The geography and rivalry as the 2 biggest Texas metros competing for Fortune 500 HDQs amoung other things is there and that created the potential for an NFL rivalry, but the teams being in different conference makes all those factors moot.

Honestly, you don't have a rival yet. A "rival" in the traditional sense goes both ways. What team hates you as equally as you hate them?

Dallas? We were embarrassed to lose to you 19-10 in your first game but that had more to do with losing to an expansion team...not an expansion team from Houston.

Tennessee? They took your team but what have you taken from them?

Jacksonville? They offered several players in the expansion draft and play in the same division but that doesn't make a "rivalry".

New England? Can't say they're a rival because you don't like their fans. That would make them the rival for just about every team in the league. Nobody likes their fans.

In the end, I think y'all are going to have a tremendous rivalry between the Titans and Jaguars. It's just going to take time.

In the end, I think y'all are going to have a tremendous rivalry between the Titans and Jaguars. It's just going to take time.

Dallas and Houston will always be rivals no matter what. No matter what sport it is, Dallas and Houston will always be that way.

Tennessee wasn't really a rivalry until this year when we ripped them a new one. I don't think they're too happy with us after this season. So we're kinda, sorta rivals.

Jacksonville is DEFINITELY our biggest rival. We may not have taken or given much to them but both teams seem to play harder. Every game is a dog fight with a play-off atmosphere.

As far as New England goes, it's more like a friendly competition that brings out the best in both teams. The Pats know they have to bring their "A" game or get punched in the mouth. And they help us by bringing out our full potential.

So in the end:
-We will never like Dallas. (unless they take football away from us again!)
-Don't really care about Tennessee.
-Love hating and pounding on Jacksonville.
-Love watching New England barely escape with their lives

well huge the question is what is OUR biggest rival. SO .. while we may not yet have a "traditional" rivalry.. I think most people agree that a rivalry is shaping up between us and Jacksonville. And if things continue on this course.. with us beating up on Jville .. and we eventually make the Playoffs over them.. I think they are going to start hating us just as much as we hate them :).

I don't understand why people get so upset with other teams "running up the score" (not directing this towards you texansrule2222). If you don't like the team scoring on you. . . STOP THEM....This is football, not polo, this is not a gentleman's game.

And as much as I would love for it to be the Colts, it just can't be.......We do nothing to keep them from doing anything....It's like a scrimmage for them when they play us, but that will soon change! :woot

My Bad. Its the Titans and Cowboys. No question.
When we play these two teams it has nothing to do with stats, records, etc. but with pride and pride alone. Those 2 teams are the texans most hated teams along with us being theres. Still thing this thread is point-less since everyone knows this already!!

For now, I have to say our big rivalry is with the Colts since we are trying to get a playoff spot this season. Of course there is always room for blood rivals like the flaming thumbtacs and the Cowboy Cheerleaders.

Dallas and Houston will always be rivals no matter what. No matter what sport it is, Dallas and Houston will always be that way.

Dallas/Houston - Yes

Cowboys/Texans - No

well huge the question is what is OUR biggest rival. SO .. while we may not yet have a "traditional" rivalry.. I think most people agree that a rivalry is shaping up between us and Jacksonville. And if things continue on this course.. with us beating up on Jville .. and we eventually make the Playoffs over them.. I think they are going to start hating us just as much as we hate them

Agreed. I think a rivalry with Jacksonville will grow into something bigger than that of Tennessee because of the rising status of Houston and Jacksonville. The Titans are rapidly becoming what will be known as the whipping post for the other teams in the AFC South. Games between Houston and Tennessee just won't mean much in the near future because not much will be riding on it. But games between the Texans and Jags could determine the AFC South Champs. That's what the great rivalries are based on.

Umm, no...and it's not even close. Washington is and always will be our most hated rival. It's been that way for decades and will continue to be so. Philly is a not-to-distant 2nd followed by the Giants. I'd even throw the 49ers in there ahead of any team from Houston (Oilers or Texans).

And more times than not, when the Cowboys and Texans play each other, stats, records, etc. will be thrown out because it'll be all about trying to impress the coaches during a pre-season game. Winning pre-season games has nothing to do with pride.

I'm interested to see how the Titans draft to replace all the players they will lose this year and how Coach Chow works out. I've always been a McNair fan and think as long as he's playing he gives them a fighting chance but I believe the Jags and Texans have the makings of a really good rivalry. As the Texans improve I do expect the rivalry to pick up also with the Colts. A s for the Cowboys and Texans you're right Huge. The Cowboys chief rival has been and will continue to be the Redskins.

#1: Texans vs Titians
Partly because they are in our division and mainly because the dooshbag Bud Adams ran off with our team. It feels so so so good beating these guys.

#2: Houston vs Dallas
Not so much about the football teams but more about the Cities. Personally I would rather beat Dallas than any other team. Even though the Cowboys are garbage right now it still feels great defeating them.
Are they a traditional rivalry. No.
Do we have a long history playing them. No.
Do we play them very often. No.
Your right Cowboys-Redskin is the bigger rivaly because of history and because all Division games matter.
That fact that we only get a shot at them every few years makes the game mean that much more. Also "Cowboy fan" the reason we enjoy beating you so much is that your fans are so annoying.

#3 Texans vs Jags
Mainly because in the past they have shown our team little to no respect. Even though we repeatedly pound on these guys. Also they are a young and coming team like ours.

#4 Texans vs Colts
We have to beat them before we can really call them a rival. But they are in our division so the road to the Playoffs goes through the Colts. When we beat them for the first time it is going to be very sweet. Hope we don't have to wait long.

The Oilers #1 rival was the Pittsburg Steelers followed closely by the Browns. years of playing against them and years of heart breaking loses (and some sweet victories)

Its still the Titans and Cowboys.

I used to live in H-town but now moved up to north texas in cowboy land. I tell you man . . . . . . . . if someone just woke-up and turned on their T.V. sets that day when the Texans played againest the Cowboys in 2002 you would have thought that was the Superbowl!!!! Before we got players/coaches/ etc. that game was all that counted!! Even if we lost everygame after that!! You all remember everyone talking about this game way, way, way before it happened.
Does any one remmber what happened when we scrimmaged, just scrimmaged the Cowboys. 10 fights broke out along with 6 players being removed from it for behavior and also 6 injuries relating from it. Someone please tell me the heard about this too!!! I know ya'll had to of saw, heard, or read about it. Doesn't matter if its a superbowl, reg. season game, pre-season game, or just a freakin scrimmage!!!

Anyway, make-pretend the cowboys and texans are in the same division . . . how many of you could actually say the redskins would still be the more hated team. Thats right!! NONE!!! Im telling you man. When these Titans/Cowboys play us its like two different superbowls. The governors bowl and the H-town bowl!!

Man . . . . . people who know (or don't know) about football, texas, and houston are all aware of three teams in football. The Texans, Cowboys, and the old-Oilers(Titans). These games would be sold out no matter if both of the teams are having a losing season!!

Houstonians hate taxes, hate traffic, hate humidty, hate Cowboys, and most of all . . . hate teams choking in big sports games (like the Oilers/Titans).

The Cowboys and the Titans . . . . . holla if you hatem brutha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holla if you feel me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I remember the fight, in preseason... personally I don't see the same intensity of rivalry of Cowboys-Texans as is with Jags-Texans..

Cowboys-Texan rivalry is only intense with the fans. Yeah stuff was made of it on the 1st game we everplayed,but that was an expansion team trying to get an identity and not show we could be pushed around.

When we start knocking people out of the playoffs and ruining their season, and vice versa.. then we see rivalries develop. Teamwise AND fan wise..

only one I see that does both team and fan is Jaguars (and both cities hate each other)

Nasty hits develp in Jags/texan games... we and them still play professional against titans and cowboys
