    Must win thread already, lol. Seriously tho, we need this win. @ Denver and Manning the following week. Titans at home after, but then a 3 week stretch of Monday night @ Jets, then GB and Ravens at home before bye.

    This is a huge game, and our guys better be ready for MJD and that running game. Or I could see us hovering around .500 for a while.

    Having a winning record before the bye is crucial and this game is key for that to happen imo. Good news is in the 6 of our last 9 games after our bye we should be favorites.

    GO TEXANS!! Beat Jax!!!

    So happy football is back, this is going to be one hell of a fun ride!! Jets yesterday were hopefully more of an exception to the rest of thier year. Playing Manning again looks like it could be just as tough as in years past. We are better equipped now, but those results only heighten my interest in this game vs Jax.

    We will need Gabbert to make some mistakes this week like Tannehill did yesterday. Our run D will be the key to this game.

    I agree. Especially division games & especially against weak teams. We don't need the Jags thinking they've got a shot & putting them down 0-2 is more important (to me) than going up 2-0.

    Must win, like the must wins of the past?????? Nah, not really.

    Either you guys will get a Jags team pissed off, from a game they should have won, or a team mentally down, from a suffering loss? I think, the pressure is more on the Jags to win...this game is their biggest opportunity for the division. Texans win..great start and can control their destiny..Jags win, back in the saddle for a chance. Should be a great game!

    Think about it this way.

    If the Jags win, you'll make a lot of Titans & Colts fans extremely happy, especially if they win as well.

    If the Jags lose, well, the Titans & Colts fans will still be a game back, even if they win next week.

    Surely you don't want to do anything that will please the fans of your division rivals right? You should focus on pissing as many of them off as possible & take one for the AFC South.

    I think i'm going to start a petition to get your old avatar back. And yes we will need to play well.

    We are 7 point favorites to start off the week. I thought it would be between 3 to 5 points. Vegas really seems to love us this year.

    Someone I watch football with is a Titans fan...uhck. I told him, The Titans are like an ex wife, she left you, so why are you still standing outside her window calling her phone and sending her money?

    I think it is going to be a tough game myself. We may be favored by Vegas....but seems like everytime we play the Jags...it is a tough game...especially on the road. Division games are extra important if you ask me. This team needs to get off to a better start and work on the run offense and defense on both sides of the ball.
    Jags will give their best shot....I expect a heavy dose of Jones Drew myself. And I am sure they will test our secondary with Blackmon.....

    Against the Vikings, 3 Olinemen went out with injures in the 1st half...........Britton, Bradfield and Nwaner........all seen after the game in boots on their left leg.........supposedly all ankle injuries.

    Jennings went out with a knee or leg injury and was to be MRI'ed yesterday.........no official word.
