Man, I started feeling sick all over again. However I am glad I watched it. I never even watched highlights of that game and this was the first glimpse back for me since it happened 15 years ago. I forgot about so much of that game (which was probably a good thing), however hearing the players commentary on what was actually happening was very interesting. Some things I didn't know or remember where how so many off the wall things had to happen for Buffalo to come back. Jeffries dropping that sure TD catch which would have probably ended it late in the 4th was one. The Oilers coaching staff getting ultra conservative at the end of the 4th, going for the tie and not the win (Jeffires ranting about that one in the commentary). He said it sent the wrong message to the team.

There were also bad calls that went Buffalo's way like Beebe stepping out of bounds, coming back in and catching a TD pass, or Givens getting held resulting in the final interception that sealed the deal.

I remember being so p*ssed that they let Buffalo back in the game, that even if they won I had no confidence in them going to Pittsburgh.

Jeffires said that game broke the spirits of that team and franchise. You know that game might not have only broken that franchise, you can probably trace back the ultimate demise of the Houston Oilers to that game. I was living in the Northeast at the time, however I can only imagine how that game must have affected the Houston fan base in general considering how fickle fans can be in Houston. I remember Bud making his stadium demands just a year or 2 later and the response might have been different if 35-3 had never happened.

I'm glad I wasn't an Oiler fan back then (I didn't live in Houston at the time...I was too young to remember any football anyway). I probably would have been suicidal if I were old enough and a big enough fan to watch that.

No doubt in my mind. Bud's antics had gotten old, but 35-3 sealed the deal, IMO. The following year vs. KC didn't help, either.

All I can say is I hate the prevent defense. It should be used only on 3rd and very long situations, basically--no matter what the score is.

I know there were a lot more problems than that, but I still hate the prevent, except after a sack or something and when the down and distance is just screaming for it.

You know, the next year against Kansas City was like the universe saying to me "Yes, that was exactly what you thought it was last year at Buffalo." The Buffalo game was the final straw and the Kansas City game was like confirmation that the it was really over.

Oiler hate eclipsed my Oiler love at that moment (Buffalo). It might have eventually come back around but then KC happened and held it off for a little longer. That turned out to be just long enough for the Oilers to head out the door without much of fight from the rest of us.

Titans futility knows no boundaries...or has any class evidently.

They should be proud of being number one losers for a year, though, because it'll be another four decades before they get another chance.

See, we've had two NFL franchises and we didn't have to steal either one of them. They get our sloppy seconds, so they can have the old hag while we enjoy the building process from the ground up.

Actually, Titans/Oilers futility has very distinct boundaries. It's the 5th most futile franchise in the NFL in terms of winning a championship. And unfortunately, some of us were witness to more of those futile years than the still NFL wet behind the ears Tennessee people.

Oilers/Titans championship futility = Houston's AFL/NFL futility based on league championships. I recognize the AFL because the NFL more than recognized it.

Interesting on all accounts. :hmmm:

The HoF does mention the AFL, so I suppose I should give the fans of the 5th most futile franchise in pro football some leeway on a their CO-championships:

1960 - Houston Oilers (AFL)
1960 - Philadelphia Eagles (NFL)
1961 - Houston Oilers (AFL)
1961 - Green Bay Packers (NFL)

There is little doubt, however, that both the Eagles and Packers would have whooped the new Houston Oilers like a red-headed stepchild. ;)

This is what I said in the article that goes with that table:

While itís highly unlikely that the fledgling Oilers or Chargers would have been able to stay on the field for 60 minutes with the 1960 Philadelphia Eagles, budding AFL stars like Ron Mix and Jim Norton were part of the new breed in the AFL and would have starred on any NFL team. And the NFL noticed. It didnít take long for AFL teams to acquire more talent like Mix and Norton and the rest, as they say, is history.

I have said this many times the past few years whenever someone mentions THAT game, as I believe it with the bottom of my heart, and and I'll believe it until I go to my grave.

If the Oilers had somehow won that game, the Houston Oilers would still exist today. The Tennessee Titans would not even exist. The Houston Texans would not even exist.

THAT game caused me to examine how seriously I watch football altogether.

Looking back at it 15 years later, maybe that's good thing.

Alright Tack Fan, time for a history lesson.

We never gave up on the Oilers, that's not why they left.

Bud went to the city wanting his own stadium. Reasonable request in my opinion considering he was leasing an outdated baseball stadium woefully inadaquate for pro football, and all monies went to Drayton Mclain.

Bud's numbers said that the Oilers had sold out the Astrodome for 10 years (up for debate considering radio and TV stations bought out the remaining tickets.)

The City of Houston was sick of a weasel like Bud and said no way. And Bud said he'd take his team elsewhere.

The Oilers were a lame duck team for 1 1/2 years while they finished the Astrodome lease.

The lack of fan support that you saw while believing everything ESPN says was near the end of that 1 1/2 years knowing they were gone.

This had nothing to do with fan support, and everything to do with A$$hole Bud Adams.

The moment the Oilers became the Titans, the Oilers ceased to exist.

The Titans can't lay claim to Earl, Luv ya Blue and unfortunately not even 35-3.

But I am confused ... didn't you say they are not the same franchise?

I know, you get confused easily.

Stolen players. I'll bet my team would be pretty good if I stole this years New England Patriots.

No more Oilers after they became the Bugtussel Possums.

Is that more clear?

Oh I get it McNair was like Brady in his prime ... not really sure which WR took Moss' spot but I am sure on an 8-8 team it might have been any of them. :sarcasm:

Tits fan is just trying to straw man the thread because his franchise owns the worst choke in NFL history. That's what this thread was about to begin with, and that history is what his franchise is all about to this day.

He brings up Texans short history because his delusional bitterman routine cannot fathom a reasonable response. You know a weak argument is being presented when they constantly change the subject.

He's a modern Don Quixote running away from 46 years of futility. But it's just his shadow wherever he goes.

Didn't I tell you to turn the page on the calendar?

I am not running away from anything. It was said it is not our history I was just exploring the idea for a second. I was not the one who brought it up in the first place so stop trying to make another persons argument mine.

A reasonable response to what? That we lost a game 15 years ago. While it still is a little bitter it does not keep me up at night. The argument of the Houston fanis "ha ha you do not have a ring" as they stick there hands in there pockets to hide there bare hands. I just point out that we have been to the show, been to the playoffs, had a winning record. Nothing a Texans fan can talk about because it has not happened. 0/6 or 0/47 is still the same winning %.

Nice you flipped the page ....

Unfortunately on these board there is no audible noise. The noise you are hearing is actually a psychotic episode you are having right now. I would suggest tying yourself to a chair and praying for the best

Get out of this forum. Your forums is at gotitans.com thank you :)

PS - Pretty much your arguments boil down to "Titans are better because we beat you the first 6 years of your existence".

I'll just sit here and wait because I'm sure next year you will be posting about injuries, Vince Young needing weapons, or Haynesworth needing motivation.

Whatever, your team is probably going to collapse this year or next and Young will get exposed as an even more terrible QB than what most people will already think.

And you can try to refute my opinions all you want but you won't win any support here.
