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?

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 would say the Cardinals. Sure we have played them yet. Sure we could care less about them yet. But SOMEONE has to be their rivals, right?

People probably say the same thing about the Jags!

I gotta go with the Titans, for now. There's enough REASON there for a rivalry, even if there isn't a lot of rival-type history for the Texans yet.

The Cowboys have the Redskins- Parcells vs. Gibbs

The Oilers I mean the Titans have the Colts- perennial big game losers

The Texans got Jaguars- post expansion teams on the way up

simple equation.

now who has the Patriots

Default Titans

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. TOROTOONS WHERE COWBOYS AND TITANS SUCK

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?

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.

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

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

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)

*%@# The Jags!!
