    I just realized the other day that I am going to be not too far from Jacksonville the week of that game staying with my sister. My brother in law (who is an Eagles fan) said he would be on board with going up there for the game. So I made a call to a Titans fan I know in Nashville that often makes road trips and sure enough, her and her gang are going to be there and we could hook up with them for pregame festivities.

    I went to the Jags site and there are tons of real good seats available via ticketmaster (I have never seen that in an NFL city less than 2 weeks before a game, especially MNF - that team will be in LA soon).

    It's two division rivals and the game will have meaning for the Texans. I also enjoy watching the Titans because I love to root against them. Of course I will be pulling for the home team Jags in this game.

    So do I pull the trigger and go? If so do I go incognito or do I represent the Texans? What would you do in my position?

    Personally, I'd probably go if I was going to be in the area.

    I'd disguise my real allegiances, though.

    And maybe wear shades.

    And a false nose.

    Just wear a 'Horns shirt or something, it'll work.

    Go. It's important to represent on the road. I went to a road game once and it was fun. Wear your Texans gear proudly. Who cares if you get teased? Titans and Jags fans don't care about wearing their gear at Reliant.

    Our team has grown some balls this year.
    It's time for the fans to do the same.

    Go and represent your team.

    Yeah, I don't figure getting tickets would be much of an issue. :D

    I say go. Wear the Texans jersey proudly and root for the Titans to lose horribly.

    Chances are that you'll end up on tv at some point since there will probably be about 2,000 in attendance.

    I am in. Picked up 3 tickets tonight off of Ticketmaster, section 437 about on the 40 yard line. It's the upper deck however the stadium is small and I am guessing it is equivelent to sitting in upper 300 level at Reliant.

    I wasn't thinking earlier since I should have planned this trip when the Texans are there a couple of weeks later. This will be an easy road trip to make each season since my sister now lives close however sadly there is no way the Jags will be in Jax much longer.

    If you want to see how sad it is there go here http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/220044E8977C31BC

    Put in 2 tickets and see where you can be seating. This is a MNF game less than 2 weeks away for crying out loud. Of course you don't even need tix ahead of time since you can buy them at the gate.

    So when is that stadium going to be completed in LA? I am just curious to how many seasons I have left to see the Texans in Jax.

    Wow. It's amazing how many good seats are available. Texans prime tickets are snapped up immediately, usually the second they are available, about six months before the actual game.

    I have never lost a football team before, but I feel really sorry for Jax die hards. They are going to lose their team.

    You are in the minority here. Were you not an Oilers fan or are you real young?

    San Fran is also the Sunday Night game this week (against Philly). Doesn't make sense.

    Any decision on attire? I'm with you. I once went to a Cubs-Mets game and just wanted to go and not have the bs that goes with an Astros shirt. So WEAR THE DAMN TEXANS SHIRT ANYWAY...lol.

    Hope you have a good time. Take a cell in case the board freezes....:hides: :D

    I don't consider 38 real young.

    I have only lived in Houston 9 years, so I never had the Oilers to lose.

    That was sad. I checked out looking for 6 seats together, once using the cheapest ticket price available and once not using a price restriction at all. Both times, 6 seats came up - all together. The price restricted tickets were in the second level and the one without a price came up field lever around the 40 yard line..

    Oh, BTW Hookem, the stadium itself is pretty big. Remember, they put 80,000 in there for the World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. I went to a game there several years ago (pre-tarp days) against Miami. They actually filled it up pretty well back then.

    Of course I will be wearing something representing the Texans. That's half the fun. Probably a cap and my polo coaches shirt.

    Gotcha houstonspartan.

    The game could be a snorer however I always have a strong rooting interest when the Titans are playing. Also I plan on meeting some Titans fans that I know from Nashville for a tailgate.

    Wear a plastic bag to blend in with the tarp over the empty seats.

    We are in row H in section 437 which looks about to be the 40 yard line, upper level.

    Using the 3D seating chart and looking at photos that upper level doesn't look that high up. Is it? At Reliant the mid 500 level is perfect for me however when you get into the upper 600 and 700 that's too high up. I am just trying to compare the seats there to Reliant.

    It sounds like if I have bad seats I can problably just go find some empty seats in the lowers.
