    With Collins retiring, I highly doubt rookie Locker or Rusty Smith will help that Titans offense this upcoming season and especially against us. :hurrah:

    I doubt the Jags are passing us up, so we at least have 2nd place (just don't f' it up Kubiak).

    This division is for the taking.....just have to pass up Manning and his crew! :mad:

    Even Kuharsky says Collins' retirement isn't good for the Titans:

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afcsouth/post/_/id/25164/collins-retirement-not-good-for-titans

    Kerry Collins always hovered. In the worst-case scenario, the Titans surely expected they could get him back to man the fort while Jake Locker took a crash course in NFL quarterbacking.

    Who knows what the worst-case scenario is now, after Collins announced his retirement.

    Matt Hasselbeck's value just went up. If the Titans don’t land him, who are the possibilities?

    The list isn’t a good one. It’s headlined by Marc Bulger, Trent Edwards, Matt Leinart and Matt Moore.

    Locker needs a full training camp to have a chance to be effective if he’s the team’s best option come its opener.

    None of the scenarios beyond Hasselbeck look very good, and he could have much better options.

    When both locker and gabbert look like HOFers against us, I'm kicking your ass.

    Against us, I'll allow it since it's a tradition against Houston teams. But I'll take the odds of those 2 playing against the rest of the league.

    LOL!

    I understand the OP's point overall, that the titans will suck this year, but Collins didn't make them a better team. Wonderlic had a much better winning percentage than Collins did behind center. Without going back to look at the stats I'd guess the titans went with the running game more with Wonderlic than they did with Collins. No idea as to why though.

    Heck, as much as I dislike Wonderlic since he's been in the league I'd rather Collins be starting. Revenge against Houston? Who knows, but Wonderlic had our number.

    That was last year. And this upcoming year, no Collins. So hopefully Wade has fixed our squad well enough to defeat either Locker or good ole' Rusty.

    How could anyone doubt the Jags when Del Rio has gone beyond proven that he's a better HC that Kubiak and can lead his team further? The Jags have never had a great team, but they have proven that they could over achieve with some sub par teams. I don't get this attitude that the Texans are a better franchise when clearly they haven't been. Sure we may look better on paper, but coaching has always been better over there.

    You really think the Jags can beat us? I know I'm putting faith in Wade, but at least I think he can clean up the secondary to give us a fighting chance against them.

    We are Texans fans, conditioned to know that they will suck until proven otherwise...and still waiting for that proof, btw. :hmmm:

    Im pretty sure Tebow's Broncos smoked our asses in Denver. Facing a rookie QB doesnt mean we will win.

    Both the jags and titans are run first teams so forget the QB .

    yep. The Texans have never been in a position where they can afford to look past any opponent, even those with rookie QBs.

    Mark Sanchez in his first NFL game ever wants in on the conversation.

    I've watched backup QBs do more damage to the Texans than starters.

    Fitzpatrick of the Bills, but he was playing as the Rams' THIRD string QB a few years ago and he zapped us real good when he had to come in for an injured Marc Bulger. Remember THAT shit? #furious.

    Collins was an easy guy to beat, IMO. Much easier than Radio. Radio would just pump fake and run around the edge and burn us for 15 yards a pop. And then there's his Option Run play with Chris Johnson that our Texans couldn't stop a few years back on MNF. #bewildered

    Rusty Smith looked OK as the season wore on for him. And Jake Locker might just surprise people, too. And if they get Kevin Kolb (pure speculation by one poster, but possible) then i don't think the Titans are an easy W for us.

    Jags? Until MJD is gone, I can't pencil them as a W for us. Plus, Jack Del Rio has just enough grit to trick Kubiak a few times every meeting between us, and our guy--Kubiak--has just enough Aw Shucks! moments to make the Jags a difficult matchup every time. Jack Del Rio instills in his team that they must HATE and DESTROY their opponents. Gary? LOL.

    I don't know if I've been conditioned then.......

    I'm always optimistic about this team.. but I don't underestimate the Titans or the Jags either.

    Collins retired..... big deal. Now watch them bring Kolb in, or at least someone they can consider a veteran QB once FA starts. There's no way they'll go into the season with Locker & Rusty as the only QBs on their roster.

    Heck they may even keep Vince... who knows.

    Especially having to face the same rookie twice, after he's figured out our scheme.
