Default Texans biggest rival?

Who do the Texan fan's consider their biggest rival: Titans, Colts, Dallas, or the Jags?

Bro, you basically named them all. On a personal level I would've included the Steelers but that is because of my days as an old Oiler fan.

Right now I would say the Jags and Titans.

We have to beat the Colts a couple of times for us to have a rivalry with them.

Cowboys we only face in a reg. season game once every 4 years so that's not as big as a rivarly as you'd think.

I'd call it a draw between the Titans and Jags.

I'd have to pick a team we don't own. I'd say the Colts this year. We only play Dallas a couple of times a decade so I don't consider them a rival.

If you judge a rival based upon how excited the fans get when we play the team and how bad we want to win, I think it goes:

1.Dallas
2.Jacksonville
3.Tennessee
4.Indy

Many will say Indianapolis. I think that's only because they've dominated us. As far as how the core Texan fans feel about these rivals in general, I don't think the Colts compare to the top 3.

Rivalries come out of games in the playoffs or games to determine division winners/playoff seeding....so it's early to pick one. We have yet to play a game of consequence where both teams have something to lose. That's why I picked the Colts.

I pretty much agree with that. As an ex-Oiler fan, I'll always hate the cowgirls & stealers. But the games with the most intensity thus far have been the Jags games. It's only a matter of time before those games will determine playoff status. Maybe even this season...

All of them!!

Depends on if its personal, or if your taking about the team in general.

On a personal basis, I DESPISE the Titans and the girls! But, I really feel the team looks at the Jags as their biggest rival. Like Vinny said, that might change when/if we ever beat the Colts.

I can agree with that, but I dislike the Jags team character and the Colts are the team to beat in this division.

I agree with Sandy also...beat them all.

Well, that too. However, there is a rivalry with Dallas for reasons any Oiler fan from Texas would understand. We have a rivalry with Tennessee because the owner abandoned the city. We have a rivalry with Jacksonville because of conflicts on the field and their head coach (ex-Cowboy)... So, while I generally agree with what Vinny is saying, I rank Dallas and Tennesse #1 and #2 because these rivalries don't depend on circumstance and will endure even when one or both teams aren't competitive.

And, our first game of consequence was last year. We beat Jacksonville at home in week #8 to essentially vault into a 3 way tie with the Colt and Jags.
Then, the Jags had a game of consequence in week #16 against us and we shut them out!

Jags hands down. There is bad blood between the Texans and Jags. The Jags have taken some pretty cheap shots over the last 2 years. They are also obnoxious and disrespectfull. Titans #2. McNair and Co. are 1st class even though the owner is a shmuck. The Colts don't even know the Texans exist, so kind of a one sided rivalry. We don't play Dallas enough for that rivalry to be significant. Steelers are the old Oilers rivals not the Texans, although I will never get tired of watching them get beat. Jags and Texans play each other with a lot of emotion and it is always a brutal smashmouthed game.

Default Titans biggest rival

[quote=Jagsbch]Who do the Texan fan's consider their biggest rival: Titans, Colts, Dallas, or the Jags

I went to a texan-titans game and they anounced the next day it was the loudest the crowd ever was for our brief history. i guess they have some sound meter but that should tell you something. we lost at the last few seconds of that game but it was great.

IMO it's got to be Tennessee. Just because of the Bud Adams factor.

If none of us can name a rival instantly, then we do not have one.

Give it about 5 more years.

Are you guys forgetting where you are from? I don't care if we only play Dallas once a century, they are our biggest rival. If you don't feel this way ask a Cowgirl fan who they played opening night in '02, he'll probably swing on you!! Even the NFL was smart enough to know that our first game should be against them. Sure, we have a rivalry with the Titans, Jags and Colts (eventually), but I think our natural rival is Dallas, they hate us and we hate them. Maybe it's just me I am a true Cowgirl hater. (See Quote)

If you're so enamored with the Cowboys franchise, go join their fan club.
If its so important to you to beat them, join the Giants, Eagles, or Skins fanclub. Otherwise, remember we do only play them once ever 4 or 5 years and we play our real rivals twice every year.
