    Matt Schaub said he hasn't really considered it. But he can place most of his injury troubles in 2007 at the feet of the Titans.

    On Oct. 21 at Reliant Stadium, he left the game late in the first quarter with a knee injury.

    On Dec. 2 at LP Field, he left the game in the first quarter with a shoulder injury, which cost him the last four games of the season.

    "I don't want to say they're bad luck or something to do with that team," Schaub said. "It was just part of the game and things that happened and were incurred in that game, it just so happened that both of them were in the Tennessee game. That's part of this game and you just have to keep battling through things and keep fighting."
    Albert Haynesworth, who delivered the hit that hurt the shoulder, talked this week about the Titans fear of backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels, who posted an 82.8 passer rating in his relief efforts in two losses last year, as compared to Schaub's 36.9 before the injuries.

    Haynesworth has gone out of his way in the past to pump up Rosenfels and take jabs at Schaub.

    This week he's been relatively mild. This was his exchange with a large group on Wednesday.

    Should Schaub be nervous?

    Albert Haynesworth: I would be, honestly. A team that is as physical as we are and know that we go after the quarterback, he'd have to think about it. But I guess every quarterback has to think about it. Not just him.

    Do you want to be sure not to knock Schaub out this time?

    AH: We don't want to see Rosenfels, man. If anything, that guy could go to almost any team and play. He is a really good quarterback. They definitely have the best backup in the NFL, at least against us. He kills us every time.

    So you're not worried about Schaub?

    AH: Yeah, but Rosenfels, he is the one who has done all the damage to us. He brought them back (last year) in Houston and scored what -- 21, 28 points in the fourth quarter. That's ridiculous. We don't have to worry about anyone else doing that. We don't have to worry about Peyton doing that, but Rosenfels is different.

    Schaub is FOS. He's scared to death, whether he wants to admit it or not.
