    Might as well. They are paying him as a starter and their current starter sucks ass. Honestly, they really can't do any worse.

    So here is the predicament. Do you cheer for VY to crash and burn keeping the Jags close to us in the standings or do you hope for a Titan win to drop the Jags back a bit.

    It's quite a vomit inducing decision to make.

    Titans win, but they continue to a 1-15 record.

    ....but, then they could draft Eric Berry. Damn.

    There is zero chance that the Titans run the table after their awful 0-6 start.

    A 9-7 record won't get you into the playoffs in the AFC.

    So Im going to force myself to cheer for the tits because we need Jackonsville to lose. A loss puts them at 3-4, plus hurts their division record.

    Because they hold the tiebreaker on us right now, a Titans loss is more important than a Jax win

    Shoot - I didn't see that, was just looking in the rivalry section. Oh well, his link is broken anyway (Hookem's, not Vince's) (Well, maybe Vince's too now that I think about it - I guess we'll find out).

    Come on Vince! Would love to see the Titans beat Jags, start to get competitive thereby making our Monday Night on 11/23 have some energy, and provide the Texans a platform for revenge.

    I ain't holding my breath, but I want some buzz for that Monday night game.

    Easy choice for me and I don't see why it's so hard for others. Whatever helps the Texans in the standings.

    Go Titans.

    KT, there will be buzz regardless who's under center for the Titans...It's the Titans, that alone with a Monday night showdown is the deal... VY just makes it more press worthy IMO....

    I do not discount that line of thinking as I am well aware of how legacy Oiler fans feels, but for me there will be a huge difference in the stands if VY is under Center.

    Unlikely IMO. Most of the VY lovers have given up on him. Even the Texas fans I work with think he's pretty much worthless as an NFL QB.

    Revenge for the Texans? We won the last two. They're the ones looking for revenge.

    Revenge for that comeback which VY orchestrated on our field. I was a big fan of VY in college, but not a fan of his in the NFL. That instance is the one where I am in the corner of legacy Oiler fan. I want that demon exorcised, and on national TV it would be pea soup pleasing.

    That's what I say. If our season comes down to a tie breaker between us and the Jags then this season is a complete and utter failure.

    You're not a Texans fan first. You're a Titans hater first.

    I'm a Texans fan first. Go Titans.
