    I knew the score could get out of hand quick if we made mistakes,... and we did. I was pleased with how we played Foster/Tate. Locker would've pushed the offense and put some points on the board. CJ might not have had as many carries though which I think he needed as a confidence boost.

    It's gonna be a hard fought game later in the season. You could still end up seeing us as a wild card too so don't enjoy the win too much.

    Just got back from the game, and these three things disgust me.

    Penalties: We coughed up a bunch of return yards today thanks to illegal blocks in the back. It seems like on every punt return someone gets called. Also a handful of other calls that set us back a ways.

    Drops: Kendall, hang on to the ball. It's what we drafted you to do! First drive stalled because of his drop with daylight ahead of him. He had another later on.

    Tackling: I swear, it's like we're immune to contact. Can't tell you how many times I saw Griffin right in position to wrap up a guy and he eats a stiff arm to the face. The touchdown to Daniels was a joke too, I think I counted 2-3 Titans that could have stopped him short.

    We had a chance at this game during halftime. Our running game had opened up, leading to CJ looking nearly like his former self, and our D was bottling up Foster/Tate. The Texans fans next to me started getting frustrated, which was a good sign.

    Just another one that we'll need to look past, but there's too many things that cost us this game.

    But according to Fouts "Griffin is a great tackler"

    Actually it wasn't bad at all, there were about 12 Titans fans in my section and I nearly saw 2 drunk Texans fans get in a fist fight. No one said anything to me pre/post game.

    We hung with Houston for the first half - and if it wasn't for a shitty drive to start the 3rd, things could have gone differently. Also, Stewart definitely took a punch from a Houston lineman. Looking forward to a possible suspension.

    Regarded as one of the league's worst defenses I'd be questioning my offense right now if I was Houston. Their defense (TDs) bailed them out.

    I'm interested to see where our team ends up. I want to see our team with McCarthy and Britt playing. Britt didn't have any big plays last game, but he had some nice plays that kept drives alive. When Cook gets back up to full speed and everybody gets back on offense I think we'll be a very competitive football team. I don't know if the run game will continue to improve, but if it does, we could definitely beat the Texans next game.

    Yes good job on beating the great Tennessee Titans. I'm sure Schaub and Johnson will stay healthy for an entire season in an already questionable offense. I'm sure you're very happy having a win handed to you because of our horrible play today with turnovers and injuries. Enjoy losing in your first playoff game.
