    Does anyone have a list of our final scores against Jacksonville since we started playing football?

    I'm trying to convince someone that we usually play Jacksonville tough and have more all time wins than losses. He is convinced that since Jacksonville has looked so good we have no shot and that they have our number.

    Total record 6-5, but your friend is right. We have no chance ..... OK, little chance. The Jags do not turn the ball over, they run the ball well, and they play very good defense. Our team turns the ball over worse than any team in the NFL, doesn't run the ball well, doesn't defend particularly well against good teams, and doesn't score when it matters. I'd have to look at 3rd down percentages, but I'd be willing to bet the Jags probably have us there, too. Of course, the game still has to be played, so you just never know.

    We only have a shot because it's a home game and the Jags are going to be resting due to the fact that they will be in the playoffs. I wouldn't be surprised if we actually pull this one out.

    Historically, the team that wins the first game wins the second game. My googling skills aren't up to the task to pull up the final scores of all the Texans vs. Jags games. But I'm pretty sure we've played the Jags well for the most part besides the game at JAX this year and I'm sure we've laid a couple of stinkers to them since our inception besides that one.

    I think we'll break the tradition of one team sweeping the divisional game and we'll win a squeaker because JAX has the luxury of looking beyond us and into the playoffs. 8-8 isn't anything to sneeze at. Playoffs in '08.

    no secrets this week...we barely ran for 65 yards when we played them earlier, but we gave up 125 and two td's to MJD alone. run the ball better and stop their run.

    it seems so long ago that we played them last, and the stat sheets reflects that as well. Ahman and Samkon ran for us last time and Matt was behind center still.

    injuries suck.

    And it's the teams last chance to shed themselves of the loser label and go 500 for the year. Hopefully that inspires them some.

    agreed...on any given sunday and all of that. We were six points short of the colts at home. If the Texan get under that six, I'll be happy man.

    They are on a run and they believe in their young QB. They are palying for each other now. They get any production at all out of their WR spots, they will be a very tough out.

    Unfortunately, I think Leftnut had a lot to do with us winning against the Jags. They are a different team now that Gerrard is at the helm. Hopefully they will be resting starters cause I really don't want to see Jones-Drew and Taylor running all over us. Especially since our seats are right behind the Jags bench. Seeing their grinning faces discussing how they torched our D would put me over the edge and make me hemorrhage. Let's keep Jones-Drew's little "flex my muscles" TD celebration out of Reliant.....PLEASE. :gun:

    OK my Jags hate vent is over....we now continue your regularly scheduled post.

    I think we win this week. They'll be resting some people in the second half and the team will like to finish off the season on a high note. I predicted 8-8 and I'm sticking to it.

    I predicted 7-9 and I'm sticking to it. The Jags will have us for lunch, cream da beef, hamburgers, k-bobs, etc etc etc, whatever they want they will get, cause our TEXANS are so damn generous this year they will give um what they want. BET on it!!!!

    Gotta love a team that is so GIVING this time of year!!!:sarcasm:

    Unfortunately, I don't like our chances. The Jags are basically our polar opposite. They are consistent, they don't turn the ball over, they have two great running backs, they are healthy, they play great defense (especially against the run), and they don't make stupid mistakes. It may be close if they decide to rest starters...but I'm not seeing a win. Despite the record difference, they are every bit as good as Indy, and Indy just took us to school.

    That would be nice Moo! I'll take 8-8 anyway I can get it, second stringers, third, kitties laying on their backs with their tails stuck up in the air, or humping all over a BULL'S leg, I DON'T care! lol 8-8 would be a nice way to end the year.:fans:

    BTW: I can't believe I'm about to say this BUT, I'm SORTA hoping the Jags win our division. I'm SICK of the PM show, and no way in hell would I EVER pull for the Tennheads!!!! Best of luck to your team during the playoffs. I'll be pulling for them against the Steelers!!
