"They weren't doing that well, but it was their Super Bowl and credit them for being the good team today,"

Add that to how Jeff Fisher was calling this our Super Bowl and all the times I saw Titan fans ape that statement this past week and it leaves me with one thought.

Get over yourselves. You're not our "Super Bowl". You're week 15 and a chance to get back to .500 and we want to beat the former Oilers a little more than most teams admittedly but we know the difference between the season the Titans have had and the one we've had. We might not be going to the playoffs (Thanks Rosencopter for making us 7-7 instead of 8-6 all by yourself) but every single remaining game is a possible win and unlike many teams that aren't going to make the post season we're still playing hard.

“Slaton didn’t do anything,” Titans outside linebacker Keith Bulluck said. “Slaton busted that run (34 yards) at the end of the game, and we pretty much had him in check. To tell you the truth, I don’t think their running game hurt us at all today.”

Yes, Cortland. We weren't "doing that well" today, you're right.

But um - to pick up the slack for us not doing that well, Andre Johnson had the game of his life. He was fantastic. He burned his man over and over again.

So really, the Titans probably could have won if whoever was covering AJ wasn't made to look like he belongs in the Arena league.

Oh, right - it was you. Choke on it and die, ass.

He din't kick it because there was still two minutes left and although we didn't put up 30 pts or anything, we could have gotten 3 pts in two minutes. Look what Slatton did when we got the ball back. Had we not kneeled three time and went ahead and kick a FG it would have been a 4 pt game and they woul have no reason to ***** about the call. Although watchng them implode makes me smile. The 610 guys mntioned earlier that one of the tits was quoted saying that fat ass's injury was on Fisher's hands. Hilarious!!!! Implode baby implode.....

I think the Titans need the Steelers game next week. They need to get back to playing a simple game of smashmouth football and seeing where they stand with a beast of a physical team. They do not want a trip up to PIT in January, and to be honest, I'm starting to worry the team peaked too early. They showed a lot of lack of killer instinct today that was evident all game. They played with little of the urgency I saw in games against the Colts and Bears.

Team should be embarrassed. I see the Steelers actually won their game, if Tennesse is saying stuff like this then why did they even play?

They got beat, in an important game, to a team that is one of the hottest in the NFL. I love the Titans' comments - the Texans are in their heads and they have locker room quotes for the off season.

The team took another step today by winning ugly against the league's best team, late in the season. We have not arrived, but at least we know the way, now.

Other than the Giants, I think every team is somewhat 'flawed' in some respect. I was stunned as anyone by the 10-0 start, but today was the first game that the Titans played dumb, careless and without the same level of intensity they need to bring to the plate every week. If this week wasn't a wakeup call, wait til they get a load of their opponent next week. Those guys are vicious and don't take any plays off.

What "good" or "elite" team says the things that the Titans say?

Haynesworth's comments the past two seasons are straight-up junior high trash talking (getting giddy about hurting Schaub), and now I'm reading all this crap from Finnegan and White who are trying to wave off the loss.

It reeks of being a pretender, not a contender.

Julius from "Remember The Titans" summed it up well when he told Jerry that "...attitude reflect leadership..." and that's how it is for a Bud Adams team. The Titans are a reflection of their owner, and we are a reflection of ours.

There was none of that horsecrap coming from us before this game, nor was it coming from us in the previous losses to the Jags or Titans or Colts. We take things on the chin and move on (insert VY joke here...) and I don't see this Texans franchise daring to disrespect any opponent in the future, even if we became 12-1 darlings overnight.

Finnegan played dirty all game, especially the blatant SPEARING move on Daniels. Don't even paint that one in any other color except turd brown.

The Titans are done. If you keep the RBs locked down, you have beaten the Titans. If our secondary survived Kerry Collins and the WRs, what the hell is going to happen when the Titans face a GOOD secondary? It's going to be ugly. It's going to be VY time, which will only make it worse.

The Titans had home field advantage to play for, much less the advantage of being on a nice roll.

To the notion of this being our SuperBowl, I would say Thank You Very Much. It was a backhanded compliment but it speaks volumes for our team. It means our coach had his team prepared to play a tough game, it means our team played a tough game and our fans were there.

See when the season started, our team figured that we would have to win the MNF game against the Jags and pull off a miracle and beat GB in the cold and we figured we'd be competing with the Radio led Titans for a WC spot. The fact that our team came out and played like something was on the line even after knowing a loss would only keep us in the same spot of the division, says tons. It says our coach is doing his job keeping these players playing for something. It says this team has pride and more importantly, it says that next year when this team needs the wins in December they are going to get it done.

Maybe if Lendale wasn't so worried about names and who was the first to be called Smash and Dash, they would've racked up over 200 hundred yards rushing against the #24 ranked defense against the run. We don't have Smash and Dash but we have #80 and #20 who don't have special names but are doing some great things.

Perhaps The Titans need to really think about their backhanded compliment. You have homefield on the line for the playoffs and you don't treat this game like The SuperBowl? What does that say about your team going into the playoffs? See when the playoffs start, it's loser go home and you have to treat those games like The SuperBowl. Your franchise contributed to the city of Houston the name Choke City for a reason and this reflected attitude they are showing was one of those reasons.

Pre game long kicks were getting blown down by wind. Explains why Fisher elected to go ahead and try to get the first down.

Yeah, NFLN (maybe it was SportCenter) showed him saying as much in his postgame presser. He said that, due to the wind at that end of Reliant, the kicker was at least 5 yds out of range.

I was sitting at the opposite endzone. I couldn't discern any wind at all on our end. But I didn't watch the Tennessee kicker practice FGs either.

Fisher also said that he should have taken the wind in the second half but had such confidence in his offense that he didn't think it would be a factor. ...now THAT is the arrogance part.

I agree that JVille is still our biggest rival at this point. But that could quickly change after this game. This was just a down right dirty game. We were punching them in the mouth from the very beginning. I have never seen our D come out and look like the prison yard bully like they did yesterday. They were hitting them hard, and they were hitting them often.

JVille has always felt more like the Oilers/Browns games. This felt like Oilers/Steelers.

Say what they want to about this being our Super Bowl, but next year they come to our house they are going to get more of the same and then some.

So the QB throws it deep, instead of a 5 or 10-yard pass play that has a better chance of being completed? Very interesting.

What Fisher is saying, and what happened, seem to be a little incongruent.

If you needed to get closer, wouldn't you attempt a safer play on 4th and 3?

I thought this game did mean something when it comes to the playoffs.

Home field advantage throughout the playoffs for buds boys made this a big game for them.

It should have been easier for buds boys to win this advantage against us and not against Pittsburgh next week.

The fact that it didn't have any playoff implications for the Texans is a moot point.

They and their fans can poo-poo all they want about the game, it was a significant game for them and losing it had to hurt.

Texan players and fans consider buds boys 'hated rivals' regardless of what anyone else thinks.

I've been very critical about the team the last few weeks but I will give credit where credit due.
