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?

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 say the Jags first and then the Titans. The Texans don't play the Cowboys enough for a rivalry.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

You know now that I think of it. We have a score to settle with Chris Bennett. I hate the Titans.

Default Dallas, but they're 2nd best

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.

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.

Undecided at this point, but leaning towards the Jag-you-wars.

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.

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.
