What's Your Take on the Other AFC South Teams?
How do you view the other three teams in the division? Is there one that you hate more than the others? Enjoy beating more than the others? Like to see them lose games more than the others? Hate them all? Respect them all?
Titans: I don't like them. I'm still a little sour over the '99 divisional round loss. Battling it out with them for the division in 2002 and 2003 gave them instant rival status in my mind, but that kind of fell by the wayside when their team was in teh sukz for the next several years. I thought they might be back after 2007 and 2008 and was gearing up for that rivalry to resume, but lol@me for thinking that.
Jags: Two guys from my hometown have played for them and I went to school with one of them, so I kind of liked them a little bit for a while. Then they got mouthy about taking the division once the Titans declined. I really didn't like the games against those hotheads. With the Titans, at least I had respect for their team in those brawls in the first two seasons. With the Jags, I hated them. They came off as nothing but a bunch of punks. I don't miss having them as serious competition.
Texans: I've had a bit of a soft spot for them ever since they came into the L. I've wanted to see them do well, albeit never against the Colts. By default, they are a division rival, but it doesn't have the feeling of a rivalry. At least, not from my end.
