I agree, the game in ATL this weekend is huge for the Titans. If they happen to win then they are just a game behind the Texans and the pressure and all the uncertainty then shift squarely onto Leinart and his ability to be successful in his first game at Jacksonville. Now if the Titans lose this weekend, it's really a long-shot for them to win the division title, but right now things are looking up for Tenneesse as I'm hearing that stud ATL rookie WR Julio Jones isn't playing Sunday ?

Until we clench the division, it's up for grabs as far as I'm concerned.

I've got no problem with him saying this.

As badly as we destroyed them, if we drop a few games with Leinart and the Titans figure out a way to win some games they should lose, they can win the division.

We have to do that "stepping on the throat" except for the season instead of just for a game. Let's just win out and take this thing and get a week to rest.

But didn't you already say the Texans are "finished"? So it sounds like he can say whatever because he'll have an easy trip to the postseason.

Exactly. Don't come in this thread talking reckless when you were saying 1-5 and "we're done". Lost those privileges.

I love it. Using the "We're not eliminated until we're mathematically eliminated" approach. Good. Good one, we're all too familiar with that one. Let them play with slim chances for a while. We'll take our division lead, 7-3 record.

If the Patriots or Ravens were to say the #1 seed was still up for grabs, would we react with the same short-sightedness that we've reacted to Hasselbeck's comments?

I could see if this was Gabbert or Painter saying this, but Hasselbeck is right. It's totally possible that we lose 3 games, heck, several of our own members believe that will be the case.

We're not so far ahead that we can start "resting our starters."

Kubiak knows this, the Texans know this, I don't think it's a big deal that Matt Hasselbeck vocalized as much. IF there are any Texans who forgot this fact, I hope that this reminds them.

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

According to the odds based on wins to date, tiebreakers and future projected strength of schedule, even if the Texans regress to a league average team with Leinart, they have a probability of over 85% to win the AFC South.
Playoff Probabilities: Week 11

It's not over until it is over and all that but I hope the Texans stomp the Titans again at home.

I never quoted a w/l prediction. We ARE finished ... even if we make the playoffs. I WILL come in here and state that Hasselbeck needs to worry about the Falcons or HE will be finished and the Texans won't factor into anything. This is a classic case of premature self-ejaculation on Hasselbeck`s part.

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

Does it surprise me he would say that....no. He is trying to be optisimistic about their chances.
That being said, that makes for good bullentin board material for the Texans.
I am sure that when the Titans come to town....there will be some heated exchanges....just like in Jax next week......

I don't know how that would make good bulletin board material. That's the same thing that should have been on the board for weeks.

Same thing with the conference. We're half a game ahead of the Ravens, but the #1 seed is up for grabs. We've still got a lot of work to do. We've still got to stay on our game. If we slip, we let the Ravens in. We let the Titans in.

The AFC is up for Grabs, the AFCSouth is up for grabs.


Believe that!!

I understand your point. The only thing that has been truly and unquestionably settled is that Indy has been mathematically eliminated. Strange things can happen. No one can really say what WILL happen.

BUT...

As long as our guys keep to the "We try to go One and Oh every week" mantra (and the injury demon decides to go pick on someone else) I think things will work out in our favor.

We shouldn't get too far ahead of ourselves. It's not over until it's over, especially when there is a Houston sports team involved. Never underestimate God's unwavering hatred of this city. That being said, our work is cut out for us and we are capable of doing what needs to be done.
