    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.

    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.

    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.

    Word, Hasselbeck?

    Yo, pimpin'; figure out how you're going to run the football vs. a top run D. Up for grabs? You 'bout to be 5-5, homie.

    OK, sophisticated black man has returned. Sorry about that.

    Just some more chalkboard material for our guys. Maybe Hasselback forgot how we beat them earlier in the season.

    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 can easily...very easily see them going 1-3 the next 4 weeks.

    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.

    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?
