Default Hasselbeck says AFC South is “up for grabs”

Scary thought. But, despite the Leinart thing, considering schedules of all the AFC teams, probably not that likely. Titans should have butts handed to them on several occasions before the season ends...........one of them still being by the Texans.


Quote:
When attempting to predict the ultimate fate of the 2011 Texans, most focus on the question of whether the team can win with quarterback Matt Leinart in the postseason.

But first the Texans have to get to the postseason.

At 5-4, the Tennessee Titans can pull to withing a game of the 7-3 Texans, if the Titans can steal a victory in Atlanta on Sunday. With six games to play, either Houston or the team that used to be in Houston could seize the division crown.

And so it’s no surprise that Titans quarterback Matt Hasselbeck told Jim Rome on Friday that the AFC South can be won.

“The state of our division here in Tennessee is that it’s up for grabs,” Hasselbeck said on Rome’s syndicated radio show. “It really is up for grabs. Houston is clearly out in front, they’re clearly the leader, but this season there’s a lot more football to be played and we’re excited at least about the opportunity to still be in it.”

Favoring the Titans is the fact that Hasselbeck is the best healthy quarterback in the division.

“I’ve been really fortunate this year, I haven’t gotten hurt significantly, you kind of power through some things and I think that’s part of it,” Hasselbeck said. “What happens late in the year, the teams that are playing the best football are the teams that are able to take care of their bodies, be smart, and also get a little bit lucky.”

Though the Titans don’t have an easy path, with games upcoming against the Buccaneers, Bills, Saints, and in Week 17 the Texans, running back Chris Johnson seems to be gradually getting his groove back, and Hasselbeck has been the best transplanted passer of 2011.

So let’s not hand the Texans the crown just yet. The Titans may still have something up their sleeve.

He's right, it's still very much up for grabs. We'll get a better indication of how close the race actually is after Leinart's game or two.

Florio is a Texan hater. And the title of "Best healthy QB in the division" is up for grabs.

What else would you expect him to say? If he was realistic and said he didn't like their chances, he'd be benched and boo'd out of town.

Other players could probably get away with it, but not the QB.

Hasselbeck needs to take care of business against the Falcons before he goes mouthing off on the AFC South.

While he is right, we can't solely worry about Tennessee, we have to take care of our own business. Even with Leinart, we're still better than the rest of our opponents on our schedule.

Funny how he says this once Schaub goes down. I hope Leinart comes in and lights the NFL up the rest of the season. And when the titans come to our house, we have already clinched the South and a first round bye, and then lets see him run his mouth.

Default Re: Hasselbeck says AFC South is “up for grabs”

He should be totally focused on the Falcons right now. If Tennessee loses this week the division won't be up for grabs. Houston has an easier remaining schedule and has a huge advantage in the tiebreaker (3-0 to 1-2). Falling two games back might as well be three back with Houston holding the tiebreakers.

With 5-4 record and 1.5 games behind, need something positive to motivate your team. I would say something similar to Hasselbeck said if I were in his shoes. But I do like Texans chances of winning AFC South.

Go Texans!!!

I'm not worried yet. If they beat the Falcons I'll be a little worried, but really this is the Texans division to lose still. I'm going to have to see how the Texans play with Matt 2 before I really start worrying.

We're still good enough to win a crappy division and get into the playoffs without our starting QB. The only thing we need worry about is how long we last once we get into the playoffs.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Titans lost all four of those games. None of those teams are bad. The seemingly easiest game of those four is Tampa Bay at home, but you never know the Buccaneers might show up strong that day. They've had a tough time this year, but we must remember they did win 10 games last year.

Default Re: Hasselbeck says AFC South is “up for grabs”

We should send Hasselbeck a thank you card because that sounds like bulletin board material to me. We have a game and a half lead at the moment and for them to overtake us, they need to go 6-1 and we'll have to go 3-3. Without Schaub, 3-3 is possible but I don't see them going 6-1.

So thanks for the alert Hasselbeck.

Of course, if we actually needed that bulletin board material, something is bad wrong.

Are we really?

Depending on what Leinart does, we could be no better off than Jaxonville, especially if Andre does not come back. Heck of a running game, great defense..... no QB, no passing game.

We could be the 12-4 Patriots with Matt Cassel... who knows?
