Terrance Knighton hates the Texans’ arrogance

Oakland Raiders v Jacksonville Jaguars Getty Images

When you think of AFC South rivalries, Texans-Jaguars isn’t the first one that comes to mind.

The two relatively recent expansion franchises have built up some animosity over time, though. At least defensive tackle Terrance “Pot Roast” Knighton thinks so, as we mentioned in one-liners earlier.

“I hate Houston; I hate the Texans,” Knighton said via Tania Ganguli of the Florida Times-Union. “That’s probably the team I hate most in the league. I don’t know, they have an arrogance about them I just can’t stand. We watched the bad game last year I just got angry and I’m ready to go out there and get that bad taste out of my mouth.”

That “bad game” from last year was the season finale, when Arian Foster rolled up 180 rushing yards to help knock Jacksonville from playoff contention.  The first game between the two teams last year was when Mike Thomas caught a Hail Mary to beat Houston.

“Every year they’re the team that’s supposed to overtake the Colts, or be this high-powered offense,” Knighton said. “This defense that’s supposed to just shut down everybody. I’m just tired of hearing about it.”

Perhaps Texans-Jaguars will be fun on Sunday after all.  There aren’t many other good options during the early set of games.

    What are the Texans arrogant about? They have never made the playoffs as a franchise.

  5. thekingdave says: Oct 29, 2011 4:07 PM

    Seriously? I don’t know what trash talk happens on the field, but Kubiak and the players probably say less through the media than any other team besides the Patriots. All this “overtaking” the Colts stuff has been fueled by the media the last 3 years.

    1) Who the hell is Terrance Knighton?

    2) Whoever he is, he’s going to get a full dose of Wade Smith, Chris Meyers, and Mike Brisiel tomorrow afternoon.

    3) Absolutely nowhere in the post does it say anything about the Texans’ players exhibiting arrogance. It seems as though this guy hates the Texans because he and his fellow D-linemen couldn’t stop Arian Foster last year.

    This is asinine.

    Houston Texans

    ZERO hall of famers
    ZERO Super Bowl wins
    ZERO Super Bowl appearances
    ZERO playoff appearances
    ZERO division crowns
    ZERO signature victories (Almost every franchise has one, Raiders have the “Sea of Hands”, Chargers have the “Epic in Miami” heck even the Jaguars have that first playoff win back in the 90′s)

    If you are asking who Terrance Knighton is, then you obviously don’t watch much football.

    If you are a Tinhorns fan like your name states, then you should really know who Knighton is.

  9. egetto says: Oct 29, 2011 4:48 PM

    @andre’sjohnson (taking the day off) It will easy to spot Pot Roast, he will be the 350 lb monster stuffing the middle which will hold foster to about 45 yards tomorrow. The Jags Defense bears zero resemblance to the team you played in week 17 last year. Tomorrow starts the yearly collapse of the team that should make the playoffs every year but never does.

  10. robigd says: Oct 29, 2011 4:49 PM

    @mrcosio,

    Their signature victories are beating up on divisional opponents during off years. See Colts, Titans games.

    Gary Kubiak is the Norv Turner of the ACFS. I hope he never gets fired.

    Someone that is more consistant then Matt Shaub!

  13. dabkg says: Oct 29, 2011 5:04 PM

    thekingdave has it right. The Texans have never named themselves the class of the division, never claimed they would dominate or made arrogant claims at all. Ever. The Media has.

    Knighton’s comments are simply a response to watching film from last year. He’s a DT, whose primary job is Run Defense, and Foster embarrassed them last year. There’s a word that describes his interview with his local newspaper accurately and completely: Whining.

    And as for MrCosio, you sir have an awfully short memory. You seem to have forgotten that the Texans are less than 10 years old as an organization. Bit too early to be calling them down for not having Super Bowl’s or Hall of Famers. L A M E

  14. orthodoxdj says: Oct 29, 2011 5:09 PM

    I’m tired of hearing about the Jaguars. Their uniforms suck, they can’t consistently, there’s always talk about them moving, there is absolutely nothing exciting about them.

    Get it together or lose the franchise.

  15. texanfan62 says: Oct 29, 2011 5:13 PM

    I don’t know what Knighton is trying to do, but if he has to fire-up himself and his teammates into saying something that is totally ridiculous,then that team will get beat tomorrow and the rest of the season. The Texans have never had reason to be Arrogant;no playoffs or championships to speak of, so “Pot Roast” or “Chipped Beef” or whatever you call yourself, go back and smoke some more whatever.

  16. wamaha says: Oct 29, 2011 5:43 PM

    Hey, Terrance Knighton, you better watch them knee’s tomorrow. I see some cut blocks coming your way…..

    If you don’t like the Texans O, stop them. You haven’t yet, ever as best I can recall. At least maybe this year you can hold them to 20. Of course, it will still likley lead to an L for you and your anemic offense.

    Arrogant? By what definition? Their best player is the quietest superstar in the NFL, coach is vanilla as they come, and they havent won a meaningfiul game in 10 years as a franchise. Knighton can play, no doubt, and the Jags have a solid D, but thats not the problem. Problem is Jags have a rookie QB going on the road against a top 10 defense. There is a damn good reason Vegas has Houston winning by 9.5 Good luck Pot Roast.
    Texans 34
    Jaguars 13

  20. txndave says: Oct 29, 2011 6:23 PM

    Lol.. you jaguar fans are funny. Y’all won a game and now you got sum to say. Don’t worry about the Texans, worry about keeping you’re little market team in you’re town.

  21. icyhuck says: Oct 29, 2011 6:27 PM

    I like knight now,this adds drama to the Gm,even thou they shut down my ravens Monday night

  22. emma333 says: Oct 29, 2011 6:41 PM

    The Jags offense needs to improve, and they will. But why are some of you continuing to harp on LA. It doesn’t follow, bad offense you move to LA. Ugly Uniforms (who cares) you move to LA. Our stadium is fine, our team has fight=GET OVER IT!

  23. gb4mn0 says: Oct 29, 2011 7:12 PM

    The NFC North has their own team that seems to feel they should be listed with the elite teams historically in the NFL and their insolent fans and flagship radio station announcers promote the team as if they are elite when in fact their record clearly illustrates that they should be portrayed as the symbol of abject failure. Of course I’m referring to the pathetic 4 time SB losing MN vikequeens.

  24. dodirty12 says: Oct 29, 2011 8:20 PM

    Jags 14
    Houston 10

  25. egetto says: Oct 29, 2011 8:29 PM

    The Texans have a 7 point win at home against the steelers and convincing victories over the Colts and Dolphins – good job. Got beat by Oakland at home. Have they started printing the “first playoff tickets ever” yet in Houston?

    @dabkg – why don’t you compare the Texans first 10 years as a franchise to the Jags first 10 years:

    Jags – 2 AFC championship games, Playoffs 96-99. Playoff appearances in 05, 07. Win in Pitt in the playoffs. Oh wait that was the first 12 years, no fair.

    Texans -

  26. cantk3 says: Oct 29, 2011 9:14 PM

    The jags are garbage, knighton is just a fatass wont be a factor in the game. Texans will crush them this is funny!! Really knighton what a fat scrub Texans 31. Jackasses 6

    What a garbage post….

    The Texans franchise has been in existence since 2002, do you really expect all of the accolades you mentioned for a team that has been in existence less than a decade?

  32. 2ndaryinsanity says: Oct 29, 2011 11:31 PM

    where’s all this hostility coming from? The Texans don’t talk trash, or beat on their chests screaming, “Look at us! We’re the greatest!” Maybe Pot Roast is just a little jealous…win or lose, every Texans game has been sold out since 2002. The Jag’s can’t fill their stadium even after they made the play-off’s. Their own city could care less if the Jag’s stay or go. Plus, Arian Foster ran all over the “run-stopping” Pork Belly and the rest of the Jag’s last year.

    @eghetto

    If you were informed, you would know that after the panthers and jags came into existance and had such success early in their franchises early history the nfl changed the way expansion teams formed and made it harder to get started for the browns and then the texans so be more informed before you begin to let vomit run from your mouth.

  35. itstariq says: Oct 30, 2011 1:30 AM

    I can’t really think of an occasion that the Texans have behaved arrogantly or talked excessive crap before a game. I’m sure they have, but they’ve never been characterized as an arrogant franchise.

  36. patpatriotagain says: Oct 30, 2011 4:45 AM

    to criticize the texans for not having HOF’ers is a little ridiculous. a HOF career is usually 12 years or longer. add five years for eligibility and you have 17 years from draft. they came into the league in 2002 which means even if they drafted a HOF’er in their first year he wouldn’t be eligibile until 2019.

    No, you are funny. Last time I checked there’s a team in Tennessee called the Titans that used to be in Houston that was called the Oilers. Sounds like you had a problem keeping your big market team in town. Think before you write.

  38. kevind713 says: Oct 30, 2011 8:43 AM

    To be fair, yes the Oilers left town for Ten, but that was more of an owner fighting with the city over a new stadium. Not b/c the games werent being attended. In the end though, they left, and Houston hasnt seen playoff football since the mid 90′s. Ouch.

    We didn’t have a problem at all. Bud wanted a new stadium just after forcing the city of Houston to spend 50 million on the Astrodome improvements. The city said no. So he moved the team. Do a little research before you talk about something you know nothing about. You guys can’t even sell out your own stadium. Let’s see if you talk smack after the Jags get their *ss handed to them today.

  40. dodirty12 says: Oct 30, 2011 12:18 PM

    Matt Schaub is 1-5 against the Jags.

  41. nationalmediacansuckit says: Oct 30, 2011 3:58 PM

    @texfan13
    Don’t need to do research my friend. The team moved. It’s pretty simple. You are an angry little guy. Do you need a hug?

    Yeah it’s pretty simple. You’re dumb and Jags suck.

  43. hispanicks says: Oct 30, 2011 5:17 PM

    yes the oilers moved because of bud adams need for a new stadium in 1997.. just after millions of tax dollars went into renovating the astrodome, yes it happened, it wasnt the fans fault. then just after 5 years, Houston had a brand new NFL franchise with a brand new state of the art stadium.. if Jacksonville loses the Jags, thats it for football in Jacksonville.. Houston is a large metropolitan with 6 million people and counting. the fans have rewarded the owner by making them the 9th most valuable sports franchise in the world, yes the world (NFL, MLB, NBA, NASCAR, Premier League Soccer..) 5th most valuable in the NFL.. where do the jags stack up in that equation, try 32nd… in the NFL team, yup dead last.. lmao

    if it wasnt for a couple of offensive woes you guys might not have scored, offense couldnt move the ball at all on the Texans improved D, thats is missing Mario Williams..

  44. andreshaubson says: Oct 30, 2011 6:14 PM

    Where are all the Jaguar fans all of a sudden? You guys were so confident….What hurt the most? The loss, the 2 picks, the fact that your defense looked as good as it will all season? Or was it the fact that Knighton came out talkin mess and then performed at an NCAA level?

    Don’t mess with Battle Red.

  45. mud5h0vel says: Oct 31, 2011 12:44 PM

    crow must taste horrible on a Monday morning…see y’all again Nov. 27th..when the Texans will be 7-3 & Jags 3-7..
