    on the road in the same year those teams respectively finished the season above .500

    This game on Sunday could tell us how average the Texans are, how bad the Titans are, or both.

    I don't think either of these two teams are very good right now.

    AFC South just might be the NFC West in terms of mediocre teams trying to not lose as many games as their divisional opponents. Meaning that those teams are battling it out within their division, but you'd never expect the likes of Seahawks or Rams going deep into the playoffs. This year, San Fran is looking like they're breaking free from the pack.

    The Titans are better, much better, than I expected them to be this year. I seriously didn't think Hasselbeck (sp?) would be THAT decent at QB for them.

    They're doing it without their best WR too.

    OK, I appreciate the effort, and I don't disagree with your general point of view on the Texans, but this is weak sauce and you know it. I mean, can't you throw in a few more factors, like weather, when the game starts, and what phase the moon is in? You really need to narrow the scope for us.

    The Texans have never beaten the Jags and Titans in the same year when both teams finish above .500, the moon is full, the game started at 3PM, and the sun was shining!

    Jeez.

    How about we make this week very important because it's a division game and they count as two games.

    Titans, like the Texans, have played pretty well in spots, and crappy other times. I wouldn't give an advantage to either team, except for maybe home field advantage.

    The last line bugs me. You suffer without your best player, this is a fact, but they have realistically looked like garbage. If you are good, you don't go from us early in the year to that cluster**** in Balt.

    Here's another fun fact:

    The Texans are 1-8 in their last 9 road games.

    Texans have looked like dookie on the road this year. I wouldn't think they would be favored to win this one.

    Texans are three point underdogs vs the new look Titans with a new coach, new QB, new OC, new DC, and their WR1 out.

    Which is a damn shame, but only points to a small little fact some of us have been hounding on around here for a while.

    To clarify my point (since my use of the word "respectively" went unnoticed.):

    The Texans have never beaten the Jags on the road, the same year in which the Jags
    finished above .500.

    The Texans have never beaten the Titans on the road, the same year in which the Titans
    finished above .500.

    How does a coach 1-19 or 1-8 in ANYTHING justify keeping his job?
