Titans punch the Texans in the Gut, Again

After appearing lifeless for the first 3 quarters of today’s match up against the Tennessee Titans, the Houston Texans roared back into the game, scoring 29 points in the 4th Quarter take a 36-35 lead. Yet Titans QB Kerry Collins rallied his team to set up Rob Bironas’ game winning field goal.

Final Score: Titans 38, Texans 36

Texans backup QB Sage Rosenfels, who entered for injured starter Matt Schaub, for the 2nd straight year nearly pulled out an improbable comeback against the Titans only to be thwarted at the end.

This was an entertaining game even though Titans starting QB Vince Young did not take one snap because of injury.

Will the Texans ever get over on Young’s Titans? It doesn’t seem that way.

Personally, I was actually pulling for the Texans to win it given the improbable way they came back in the 4th Quarter. Also, given that my man VY did not participate, I wasn’t going to mind if the Titans did lose. I like to think of myself as a Vince Young fan first and then a fan of any particular NFL team, that team being the one he plays on.

Had the Texans drafted Young, a Texans fan I would be. Yet even though I’ve lived in Houston most of my life, I’m not a Texans fan, especially since they have no history here in the city. Quite frankly, I never got wrapped up in all the hoopla when Houston was awarded an expansion franchise.

I even think it comical to see all these diehard Texans fans, not to mention the so-called “long time” Texans fans who call the local sports radio shows. There is no way that kind of loyalty (in terms of a sports team) can exist for a team which hasn’t even been here for 10 years.

    This game was something crazy. I still pull for the Titans, after being a fan of then new team the first four years. Even though VY was out, you still had the Titans representing the burnt orange more than the Texans, which I really don’t get. Ahman Hall is the fullback for the Titans, and he has a cool story. He went and served in Iraq, and then came back to get his degree, playing on the national championship team. Then you got Bo Schaife, and Griffin. Titans needed this win due to the competition in their division. Who would have thought this would be the top division in the NFL?

    That being said, I am not really sure anyone can beat the Patriots, so this talk of needing to win may be pointless.
