* Please note that I normally dont wish injury on a player but Haynesworth is a low class individual who has earned it.

He's come a long way since the Garude incident. No one, and I mean no one was angrier with him than me. Since then he has not only shown maturation, but he's become a genuine leader for the team.

So aside from the Schaub hit that IIRC was legal, what else makes him a lowlife? You know him personally?

Agree. They're strong in all 3 phases of the game. Their offense has a negative with the passing game, but their running game is more than enough.. (especially since our Defense can't stop a cold).

We're going to have to play hard and smart to win this one. I think it's a winnable game but it's going to be hard.

HAHAH we will see intill Tex TItans and Jags

Sweep the COlts in the RS IMO COlts are still king but that could all change this year

I think our defense, as a unit, is the worst it's EVER been.

Maybe that's an overstatement...but still, this is not a unit that looks good at all.

Anybody not named Mario or DeMeco is practically losing their individual battles on the field. Wouldn't it be fair to say that? Who else, on this defense, is going to match up OK with the guy lined up against them? Clock is ticking...but be rational in your reasoning (if you list someone else).

Doesn't get any more textbook than that. Well, maybe his head needs to be in Schaub's chest a little more.

All this talk about Schaub being fragile yadayadayada....

I don't know of anyone that would not be injured with 350 lbs of Fat Albert being dropped on them.

With the placement of that helmet I can see why he injured his shoulder. If he would have caught him straight in the chest we could have been looking at a cracked sternum.

I've been accused of many things on this board....

But an Albert apologist? Never. On the TOMB I skewered him after the Garude incident. I didn't want him back. I still can barely tolerate him and am fine with him leaving for a $40M signing bonus this off-season that some sucker is going to spend. In the meantime yeah, what can I do? He's on my favourite team and I want my team to win the Super Bowl, so on this one, I'll crawl into the mud and live with it....until January/Feb.

It's no doubt that the Titans are a physical team. However, I can see AJ, Walter & OD having a big day against them. Run a two TE set and keep Vonta close to Schaub and it could be a win. I don't think the Tacks are any more talented than we are. They have Haynesworth. We've got Mario. I see them as about equal talent wise. I expect a Texans upset. Stay tight in man coverage on their WR's. Stack 8 in the box.

The MJD thing was a BS witch hunt but the other incident is accurate. Justin Hartwig was the guy he stomped in practice BTW.
