    Titans (+6.5) over TEXANS
    Because even though your gut instinct is, "I can't take Tennessee on the road, Rusty Smith is starting" … you're telling me the all-time leading passer in Florida Atlantic history can't handle Houston's historically atrocious pass defense?

    Fact: Seven of 10 quarterbacks have had a QB rating better than 100 against the 2010 Texans.

    Fact: The worst game any 2010 quarterback has had against the Texans? Bruce Gradkowski's 278-yard, two-touchdown, two-pick effort (78.8 QB rating).

    Fact: The MVP of the 2010 season is WIPQATT (whoever is playing QB against the Texans). Check out WIPQATT's numbers: 3,139 yards (second), 25 TDs (first), +18 QB/INT ratio (first), 109.1 QB rating (first).

    So you're not picking Smith; you're picking WIPQATT and trusting that Houston's pass defense can make any reasonably professional quarterback look decent … and, you're getting nearly a touchdown with an emotional Tennessee team that's trying to save its season. I'm riding Rusty. Even though I can't remember a professional athlete with the name "Rusty" succeeding since Rusty Staub. Good talk, Russ.

    It's not considered a ratio if one of the numbers is 0.

    Okay Rick - as soon as this season is over (and assuming you still have a job) you better go out and trade for this WIPQATT character. Perhaps you could start by offering up TETDRACS (The Entire Texans Defensive Roster And Coaching Staff). Maybe try to get a 4th or 5th rounder back too.

    A denominator cannot be zero. It's an illegal ratio.

    Andre Johnson is an exception to every rule.

    Not as much since we are apparently doubling down on rushing defense.
