    Hope he means it.

    After seeing how Titans fans are practically giddy with excitement about the potential loss of Schaub, let's make sure we all post with character on this situation of Mathis being out.

    We know how we feel seeing our own key players go down to injury. So let's stay above reproach on this stuff when it happens to Colts/Jags/Titans.

    I know it's a given, not saying you guys haven't been good sports or anything.

    I just feel a heightened sense of duty after having seen how opposing teams treat injuries to key Texans players. For nine years, all we've had here is our own dignity and character in how we treat opposing teams' fans...now that we're 7-3, let's act like we've been here before.

    Unbelievable. The injury list continues to pile up with real quality players. It seems like every day another big name is out for the season. Sucks for the Jags, but their season wasn't really going anywhere anyway. Hopefully we can have an injury free game against them with whatever players we both have left. I think it is going to be a close fought battle.

    Agreed 100%. Injuries suck and I would much rather play teams when we are both fully healthy.

    Makes you wonder (which I think we already DO know, actually) how many players are playing pretty banged up and know they can't afford to take a game off to heal up.

    I don't wish an injury to any player not even those who don't have the greatest of attitudes.

    I still find it remarkable that the Packers won it all last year with so many players hurt, including the ones that got hurt in the SB.

    Now look, they seem to be the one team in the league without a key injury and they look unstoppable.

    Not good timing in a contract year for Rashean.
