True. Our "rivalries" at this point are all situational. Tennessee feels like a rival because they used to be the Oilers but other than that who cares. Dallas is a cross-state rival but that isn't completely about football. Jacksonville is named because they're maybe the only team we've played multiple times that we have a regular and reasonable expectation of beating.

If the Jags hadn't been so bad against us and the Titans hadn't formerly been the Oilers then we wouldn't even have a pretend rival yet.

Jags....I HATE THEM...I mean, really, really, hate them. They make me foam at the mouth like a dog with rabies. This year will mark my first game I get to see against them and I am going to pay any amount of money to get as close to the field as possible. I want them to be able to hear me screaming and yelling horrible things at them!

Anyway, that's my point of view

Indy can't be a rival, their has to be equal hate towards one another for their to be a rival. We hate them, but they probably love us, considering that we have been 2 W's on the board for 3 strait years (but that will change this year).

As for as how the city and the team feel about the cowboys, the first 2 years we had our scrimages against the cowboys. The first year it was fine and smooth, then we beat them in the season opener. The next year however, I seem to remember their being a few fights and scirmishes during the practices, to the point that we haven't practiced with them since. I think that probably says enough about how the teams feel towards one another. Dallas probably hates us worse than we do them though.

As for as strait up hate so bad that a 230lb deepsnaper would punk a 300lb defensive lineman, or a defensive lineman going off and earholing a QB. Only one team fits that bill right now.

So simply put, yes Jacksonville, we hate you, we hate your coach, and you're going to be our whiping child for a long time.

Bch, we already 'done told you' on your homey board how this is. Did you not believe me, 84, 279, Carrbomb, a4toz and the others?

As much as you catty types want to think it...the Titans (tacks to you) are not your biggest rival. You want it to be because of them being lame right now. Bet this big talk about them ceases when they become strong again. Being a regular poster on your home board, you know my stance on this.
grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Now where did I put that 'owned' pic?

I like the Jags sweeping the division this year, or at least getting back to our 7-1 division standings that made us one of the most winningest franchises in History.

its the jags, hands down. remember we spoiled their playoff hopes last year winning in Jacksonville, this year expect a huge party before and after that game also last year the game against them here was halloween. the fact both teams are improving & trying to vie for a playoff berth in the same division means each game represents attainment of that goal.

the Texans hammered the Jaguars last year also means they really got up for the games, something motivated them that something is their rival

O.K., since nusnusguy doesn't understand the concept of disliking the Cowboys without moving to Philly or Washington let me put this another way. I think the Cowboys are the Texans BIGGEST rival, not their only rival. Jacksonville, Tennesse, and Indy are definitely our rivals, I just think Dallas is the biggest. The reason I feel this way is b/c I was a true Oiler fan even when they were bad, and I had to listen to all of the Cowboy fans. Then, when they started winning Super Bowls again in the 90's, Cowboy fan was coming out of everywhere, I guess thats why I hate them so much. Even now, when you talk about the Texans beating them they dismiss it as a fluke, and say "just wait until '06." They didn't respect us then and they don't now, thats why I think they are our biggest rival.

I would say the Colts because they've been the best since the Texans have been a team really and while I did not think so many Texan fans thought they ran up the score last year (I think it was a game last year).

Your biggest rival should be a team in your division. You play them most often and the games mean more.

im going with the jags bc we are guaranteed to see them 2 times a year and we have had some very intense games with them. there have been countless skirmishes on the field. we have had jags players making pathetic remarks about how they wished we would win the coin toss (which we ultimately did, and then immediately after, we drove for a TD to open the game) and all the trash they talk.

1. Titans-beating the titans twice was way better than beating the jags twice.
2. Jags-we own the jags, but they end up with a better record.
3. Colts-the team to beat, they own us now, we'll see this season.
4. Cowboys-different conference, don't play them enough, we've played 47 games since the 1 dallas game and 6 against each of the 3 above.
