With Kyle out that should help the cause this weekend!
Dammit. I don't want there to be any excuses if we win.
It's a meaningless game for us anyway, so the only way to get any real satisfaction out of beating them is if they are at full-strength.
I agree. The TENNheads already say that we have never really beat them because they had a rash of injuries the year we put the Ws in the win collum. Of course they disregard they years we lead the league in injuries and they beat us "because the Titans were the better team anyway".
That's ok though. I will take a win anyway we can get one.
A team at full strength is rare this time of year. Besides, didnt he miss 3 games already? And they are still 12-1 and the backups for KVB have played decent. This wont be an excuse for them at all.
I wish VB was playing just for the simple fact that I'd like DuaneB to get as much experience against good DE's as possible...
As far as a win holding less weight because KVB is out.....pfft.....
Just take all of the Jaguars fans takes on the last game of the season last year, and that's pretty much what we'll get from Titans fans after Sunday if we win.
They actually need this win though.
Last time I checked we play football games with only one DE too........I don't see any excuses if we happen to beat them.
If one player makes that much of a difference then every game in the David Carr era should be wiped from the books...
I say we wipe those from the books regardless...
They're in the playoffs and if they beat the Steelers next week they'll pretty much do everything need to do in the regular season to set up the playoffs. They WANT to beat us, but they NEED to beat the Steelers.
Besides, the fans don't use logic anyway.
Those would have to be some dumba88, toothless and brainless hillbillies that would use that excuse, with the "home field" advantage throughout the playoffs being at stake.
BTW, when backups for KVB have been in there this season, the Tacks' DL hasn't lost a step. In 10 games, KVB has had 4.5 sacks. His subs have combine for 9.5 in the games they played.
Any Jags fan who says that is a moron. The list of players that WE had out of that game due to injury was just as extensive as the list of players they chose to sit, so whatever.
Anyway, I agree it won't diminish the victory if we win.
in related news, Vince Young has volunteered to massage Vanden Bosch's sore areas until Kyle feels all warm and tingly.
It would have been nice to see Brown vs Vanden Bosch round two but even if he had played he wouldn't have been himself. Groins are a tricky injury, just ask Roy Oswalt.
Just barely semi-clever.
Yay this is very good news! A win is a win, and nothing can tarnish a Texans win in my book.
If the Titans lose on Sunday, and the Steelers win, the Steelers control their own destiny as it relates to homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. They can say it's meaningless, but there's no way they believe it.
Titans don't want to lose to us regardless who's injured...this is one of "those" rivalries....I HATE THE TITANS AND CAN'T WAIT TO TALK SMACK TO TITAN FAN!!!!!!
