Darn you DChess! We can't help it that us AFC Southers are a bit on the quiet side. Oh well. I was kinda hoping a Team Leader would be the one to start it...I guess you'll do. ;)

But, while I'm here, GO TITANS!!! Chris Brown is a beast of burden!

What happened to the Jaguars' run defense? Stroud + Henderson = 282 rushing yards?! :confused:

TitanHope
09-09-2007, 08:12 PM
My guess is that Stroud, Heyward, and Peterson aren't 100% recovered from their injuries last year. That, and our underrated O-line played extremely well. Chris Brown would be through the line before Stroud or Henderson could even touch him. Not to mention, the Jag defense had to account for Vince Young on every play. I think Peterson was used to spy the QB, but I'm not sure.

My theory is that Vince Young is deflecting the Madden jinx upon the rest of the AFC South. He's already hit Byron Leftwich, obviously, and I think we should count David Carr, too. I didn't expect for him to hit the Jag's run D, though. I guess we shouldn't be surprised if Peyton Manning somehow has a down year. He lit up the Saints, but I think Manning is mentally strong enough that Vince will probably have to make eye contact in order to deflect the jinx upon him. Lesser beings, such as Leftwich and Carr, don't require eye contact.

Just my honest opinion. :)

By the way, I want to congratulate the Texans and Jags on their improved QB situations. As an outsider looking in, it would seem that Matt Schaub and David Garrard will definitely improve your offenses.

Here's to the AFC South being the best division in football this year. Cheers!

If that is indeed the case, then I should thank VY for getting rid of Carr.

Thank you, Mr. Young.

The problem with the Jags run defense is that the defensive line has been depleted with injuries. Stroud is coming off offseason microfracture ankle surgery; Henderson's neck/shoulder/thing is tweaked or something; and Del Rio stated earlier this week that Hayward probably won't ever be the same player he was before his Achilles tear.

Well, that kinda hurts my Madden jinx deflection theory ... at least for the Jags run D. I still think VY will somehow hit Peyton with it, though. Maybe Peyton will deflect the jinx upon Jim Sorgi.

Madden --> VY
VY --> David Carr
VY --> Byron Leftwich
VY --> Peyton Manning
Peyton Manning --> Jim Sorgi

The Jacksonville Jaguars game vs the Atlanta Falcons has been blacked out and will not be televised by the local news media in Jacksonville. The team says that it still has around 4,000 tickets to sell. They are not asking for an extension, either.

I'm not exactly surprised, but its unfortunate. I know that if I couldn't see a Titans game, I'd be very upset. Sorry guys, but it seems the "L.A. Jaguars" jokes has gone from jeering to a legitimate possibility.

Pacman pisses everyone off, and Ron Killings (the other guy there) does all the work (cause pacman cant wrestle) And after killings beats them down, pacman spraypaints "Pac" onto their back.

Geo

I would think not, and readily admit that I was wrong. I didn't think Schaub would come in and play so well immediately, and that the offensive line would improve so much so soon with him behind center (zero sacks at Carolina surprises/impresses me greatly). Well done.

The Colts play at Houston next weekend, looks like another tough divisional game.

Major news for the Jaguars and the AFC South: (http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/091807/jag_200401976.shtml)

Sensabaugh could be out for year

VITO STELLINO/The Times-Union
Last modified 9/18/2007 - 6:13 am

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio said during a news conference Monday that safety Gerald Sensabaugh will likely undergo shoulder surgery and be lost for the season.

Sensabaugh is getting a second opinion about the injury.

The Jaguars, who let safety Deon Grant leave in free agency for Seattle in the offseason, now find themselves short at the position. They'll have to play veteran Sammy Knight in place of Sensabaugh or move cornerback Brian Williams to safety and play Scott Starks or veteran Aaron Glenn at cornerback.

The injuries also continue to pile up on the defensive line. Del Rio said defensive tackle John Henderson would not be allowed to have any contact in practice this week because he took a blow to the head in Sunday's 13-7 victory over Atlanta.

You know, I did. Especially the third down before the Colts punted, I think Addai heard it and almost stopped initially. That was the best atmosphere I've seen from a Texans game in probably ever. They've usually/always sold out at Reliant, but they're fully behind the much-improved Texans squad we're seeing now.

It definitely is. All four teams continue to do a great job of bringing in very good talent to add to very good coaching, and we're seeing the results. I think all four teams could play anyone in the league and give them a tough outing.

The Jaguars have always played poorly in the division. It's not as if it wasn't important in those years, but it's imperative this year.

It's taken awhile, but it seems the AFC South is "coming into it's own." Technically, that wouldn't mean much if the Colts won for the 6th straight time, but a 4-way (or at least 3-way) competition would mean alot for future years.

Anyway, I have a feeling that the AFC South will be like the SEC. If our teams didn't have to play each other, and in doing so knocking each other out, we'd probably have multiple teams in the Playoffs every year.

I remember in the early 2000's when the Titans, Colts, and Jaguars were all awesome teams. Ahhh, good times, good times.

MaxV

Well, I believe that 2 teams can make the playoffs out this division.

It's true that we have to play each other, and all 4 teams in the divisions are tough, but we are also matched with 2 fairly mediocre divisions (AFC West and NFC South).

I'm not saying we'll sweep all the games with those teams (probably not), but we probably should win the vast majority of them.

Yes, as I've stated before, despite the fact that we have to play each other, there is a VERY good chance that 2 teams will make it out of this division.

- Only the Pats are playoff-caliber team in the AFC East.
- AFC West has been TERRIBLE this year. I doubt they'll send more then 1 team to the playoffs.
- In the AFC North, Steelers are good, they'll be there, but who else looks like a playoff team there? Bengals have no D, Ravens have no O and there is no way Browns will make it.

Now, it's VERY unlikely that AFC South will send 3 teams, but I believe that they should send 2.

TitanHope
10-07-2007, 09:51 PM
I agree with you on that. I think the Colts are a lock for the postseason. If the Titans played like they did today, I don't think they'll make it. If they played like they did in the first three, then they have a chance. The Jaguars aren't the team I saw in week one. They've won tough road games at Denver and KC. I'd say they have a good chance. If the Texans can get Andre Johnson back, then they have a shot, but if not, I don't think they can.

If nothing else, this division is proving to be the most competitive and interesting in the AFC. Maybe even in the NFL.

MaxV

I agree. Here's how I would rank them at this point:

1. AFC South....4 quality teams.
2. NFC East....Dallas is great and the other 3 teams have the talent also.
3. NFC West....Wide open division, with 3 solid teams, no great teams though.
4. AFC North....Steelers look great but overall this division has been a bit of a disappointment so far. The Browns have played surprisingly well though.
5. NFC South....Bucs look solid, as do Panthers, but Saints and Falcons stink.
6. NFC North....Packers have played great and Lions could have the best season in awhile, but Bears and Vikes have looked mediocre.
7. AFC East....Pats are awesome, but there's nothing else here.
8. AFC West....Raiders are the leaders with a 2-2 record, 'nuff said. Chargers have looked great today, so perhaps they will still become the team they were suppose to be.

The Jags have the same running game as last year and the same D, the one difference is they are finally getting good play from their QB position. Garrard has been outstanding.

The Colts are playing great O, as always, but this year their D has played very well also. They are a lot more physical this year.

Week 13 is an Incredible Hulk-big weekend for the AFC South.

Houston at Tennessee 1:00 PM
This is a playoff game imo, as both team's playoff chances rest on this game. Probably moreso the Texans as they are 5-6, but the Titans at 6-5 need to end their losing streak before they get too far behind Jacksonville and Cleveland in the wild card race.

Jacksonville at Indianapolis 1:00 PM
This could have playoff-like atmosphere as well, as the Jags likely need to win this game to have a chance at the division crown, or at least to stay in front of the pack for the wild card. The Colts know this and will get ready for their biggest game remaining, to put themselves in great position in terms of both the division and the conference. Hopefully some of the Colts' injured players are healthier and able to play in this big division game, whereas the Jags are coming into this game missing their defensive leader Mike Peterson and no George Wrighster on the offensive end. Rashean Mathis may not be fully healthy himself, but he will play.

TitanHope
11-30-2007, 07:44 PM
The Titans will have Haynesworth back, so that will help their struggling DEF. I don't think he'll be the force that he was in the game at Houston, though. Andre Johnson will be playing in this one too, and he was hurt in the last game. It should be interesting, but I expect the Titans to end their losing streak.

As for the Colts/Jags game, I think the Colts come out of top. As you said Geo, its a big divisional game but its also a big AFC game. Not only would Jax and Indy be tied for the lead in the division if Indy lost, but Home Field Advantage would be up for grabs with Pitt in the mix. Both teams have their lumps, but Indy is at home and I can't see them losing.

Thanks Comahan. AFC South Represent!

It should be a good weekend of games. Also, big props to the Texans this year. You guys played great despite all your injuries, and kept the division competitive. Had ya'll stayed healthy, the AFC South would have been in the same circumstances as the SEC is; The inter-league/division play forces the teams to beat one another up, and thus diminishes post-season opportunities. But, I think this is the first year of a new great division's era.

Yeah, the AFC South didn't represent well in the playoffs, the Jags getting the only win of the bunch. Next year may not be as competitive since it's hard to repeat such historic levels, but it should be a fun one nonetheless.

TitanHope
05-06-2008, 08:18 PM
I am of the opinion that the AFC South teams were just too good in the regular season, so they didn't feel challenged when the Playoffs came. Thus, the lack luster performance in the Playoffs.

As for next year, I'd say the Colts and the Jags make it in definitely. Tennessee can make it if they can stay healthy, but it depends on VY's progression as a QB. I like the moves they've made, though I think swapping Odom for basically Jason Jones was a stupid move. Cleveland has made improvements, but they play the AFC South and NFC North, so their strength of schedule is tougher (which will help them if they're tied, but wins will come less easily). For whatever reason, I don't see the Jets or Bills being better than Tennessee or Cleveland. I think the Jets bought their way to an 8-8/9-7 season, but that doesn't make the Playoffs in the AFC. The Bills played well last year despite numerous injuries, but so did other teams. I dunno their schedules though, so it could be like the '06 season when the Jets made the Playoffs after facing a super easy schedule.

We'll see though. I just can't wait for football to start... *starts twitching*

So now that Albert's gone how does that shake up the division, also Harrison left the Colts. What are the Jags planning to do to improve.

I know the Texans dropped a few players to open up cap space, we franchised D-rob in order to try and hammer out a deal. Gave Owen Daniels the higest tender. I think our team will come out much improved IF our new defensive coaching steps it up. Thoughts?

The Titans shall actually blitz now!!! Muahahahaha!!!

Ahem..

Texans: The biggest tease team in the NFL. The script:

Non-AFC South fans: Texanz are my sleeper team!

Non-Texans AFC South fans: Lulz...

Weeks 1-8: Texans go 2-6, Matt Schaub gets hurt, Super Mario gets 3 sacks in a game, MarioPalmer creates a thread spreading his greatness, Super Mario goes sackless for 3 games, Colts and Titans fans call him over-rated while Jags fans are too cool for skool, and it winds down with Andre Johnson being a beast, and Dunta Robinson getting hurt.

Weeks 9-16: Texans are out of the Playoff picture, and they led by Matt Schaub in a sling go 6-2 down the stretch when the pressure is off. Finish the year 8-8, and once again become everyone's underdog/sleeper team next season since they ended the season strongly.

Thus, the never ending process repeats itself.

Why will this year be any different?


The Colts won't miss Harrison. The only loss I'd be worried about is Dungy, but that is only because I have so much respect for him.

The Jags need to settle their OL issues, and need Harvey and Groves to have an impact on their passrush.

Titans system will help them withstand the loss of Haynesworth, but losing a player of that caliber isn't something to shrug off. Plus, how will Chuck Cecil differ from Jim Schwartz?

I feel Haynesworth is way overated, Not that he isnt a great player but he was only on the feild abut 56% of the time. I dont think he was near as dominate as he was the first part of last year. Jason Jones, Tony Brown, Jovan Haye, and SenDerrick Marks is a pretty beastly rotation if you ask me.

The Texans will have to stay healthy to have a shot at the Playoffs, because they have the players to be competitive. I don't think Jax is getting enough respect. I think the division will be a lot like the '07 season.

Had the Titans retained Haynesworth, it'd be a landslide AFCS win. But, we didn't, so the AFCN will win. More AFCN fans on this site, and people like the allure of Pittsburgh-Baltimore combo defense. Lots of hardcore fans on SWDC, and they prefer defense.

I honest to goodness would think we'd win though, but it'd essentially be the unstoppable force against the immovable object. Good job voting and debating though guys! (we pwned teh debate part! :p :D) It's a shame this was the first matchup, as I think these two divisions are the two best of the 4 AFC teams.

It'll probably be AFC North vs NFC East in the final one

It's cool. The Titans took care of this situation last week.

Thread is now stickied, and I'll be updating the the division matchups in the title as they come up each week.

This week we have the Jaguars at Titans (1:00) as the only division game. The Texans are up against the Eagles at Philly on Thursday Night Football (8:20). The Colts are hosting the Cowboys (4:15 PM).

So since no games overlap, hopefully most of us can catch all the action. If any of you guys have any analysis that you usually post in your team forums pre-or-post game, then by all means copy and paste here to keep the talking flowing.

Tough week. We went 1-3, and the one win was cause J'Ville beat Tennessee in a division game.

Next week there's only one divisional matchup, Tennessee and Indy on TNF. Texans have a tough matchup against Baltimore, and the Jags take on a Raiders team that just rolled the Chargers.

Jax 7-5
Indy 6-6
Hou 5-7
Ten 5-7

WTF!!!! This was one of the strongest divisions in all of football, now its turning into one of the weakest. Looks like we may have a 9-7 division winner.

yeah
Indy- injuries
Ten - VY
Hou - Kubs
Jax - looking good

Next year Indy will be healthy and back to normal, this was the year to over take them, and Jax is the only team making an attempt to do so.

I was really pulling for Tenn to win this one, even though Peyton is my fantasy QB haha. Would of made the division race a lot more interesting. As much as i like Fisher, and hope hes coaching the Texans next year haha, I dont understand not going for it on 4 and 1. Yeah if you dont get it you give up good field position, but you have to take chances if your gonna beat Peyton.

I don't think anyone does. In fact, I have waaaay more problems with this than with Fish's clock management in the final 30 seconds, which I don't think was as bad as the execution/playcalling in that time.

Does it piss off Texans fans when announcers and commentators call them the "Houston Oilers" or "Houston Titans?"

Chris Carter said the latter today, but I see guys say something like this at least twice a year. I've never once had a Freudian slip like this and it's not even my job to cover these teams...

If the word "WIN" came after someone calling us the "Houston Oilers" or "Houston Titans" i wouldnt mind haha. Nah it doesnt bother me, I was a huge Oiler fan as a kid, and when they left i was a big Titan fan until we got the Texans. What bothers me is when Matt Millen kept calling Duane Brown "Jammal Brown" during the Eagle game.
