I remember when the Jags and Steelers had a good rivalry going. But in the end, when it is all said and done, I believe the Jaguars true rival are the Houston Texans. A budding rivalry started with the Houston Oilers as the emerged to be the first team the Jaguars not only played, but the first team they beat. In 1995, the Jaguars lost their inaugural game 10-3 to the Oilers, then got their first win 17-16 in Houston on October 1. This rivalry went on to Tennessee with the Titans dominating the rivalry in 1999 when Jeff Fisher wound up being the only coach to own Tom Coughlin with three consecutive losses, a memory that still haunts Jaguars fan this day. This season started with a Broncos game heralded as the most important game in franchise history, well it wound up being the hottest game in franchise history, coincidently last weeks game wound up being the coldest, this in a time when Tim Tebow wound up looking hotter than anyone could have imagined against the Texans. Texans where not able to stop Tebow once the offensive scheme was forced to be opend up for him as his Broncos fell to a 17 point deficit going into half time with scoring drives of 80, 71, 74 and 76 yards. This while aspiring the leagues 31st rank defense to hold off the texans to just two field goals in the second half. The PlaTebow effect. Living in Jacksonville watching our hometown hero inspire his team mates to greatness, is nothing new to us, but for Broncos fans booing Tebow in the first half due to an ultra conservative scheme on offense, where incessantly cheering him in the second half after he threw bombs for 40 and 50 yards threw the air during his scoring drives. "We didn't stop them one time in the second half," Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Monday. "The kid (Tebow) made a lot of great plays." The Orlando Sentinal covered this topic. But I digress... Point being Texans are at the end of the road with Gary Kubiak who has lost 7 of the last 8 games after a promising start. Kubiak is more than likely headed to Denver to be the Broncos head coach at seasons end. Question on this fans mind is will Kubiak take Jack Del Rio down with him if he fails to win? Another question on this fans mind is how tebow managed to do something it took David Garrard till the end of his 7th season to accomplish, and this is to throw for 300 yards in a game. NFL fans found it easy to write of the success Tebow has had thus far in only his second start, considering how poor the Texans passing defense is. Next week Tebow faces the No. 1 passing defense in the league, now I can't help but wonder will Tebows success influence this franchise to jetison the run dependant passer that is Garrard if he fails to cut mustard in light of Tebows success. Tebow and Garrard are now entertwined in a maze of what could have been, and the only way to remove a huge portion of that stigma IMO would be to cut Garrard and seek a QB who is clutch, rather than one who lacks the mettle to remain composed under pressure time and time again. Texans have a reputation for eing the Jaguars spoilers, they are coming into this game with a chip on their shoulder, a feeling of having been robbed in the last meeting between these two thanks to the hail mary throw. Texans are on the verge of not only spoiling the season but the careers of Jack Del Rio and David Garrard. Is this the most important game in franchise history for the Jaguars?
