"Oppossing"? Really? That's a little too close for comfort to "Opossum" for me. I think somebody was trying to type about opposing fans while at the same time thinking he was hungry and this came out.

Actually I thought the same thing when I saw it. Thought Flacco took a step out. Must have just been the angle since no one else seems to have seen it.

I caught a replay in high def while doing this game for my network. He stayed inbounds.

so I guess I was seeing double when I thought I saw a safety should have been called when the ravens qb may have stepped out of bounds in the endzone?



Been replayed on ESPN numerous times. It's clear he never stepped out of bounds.

That';s why we don't stop. Ask Red Sox fans after Aaron Boone or Buckner. They don't know why, but they come back for more.

Sports fans are idiots, when you think about it.

After a bad loss I always wonder why I care so much. Why do we love something so much that will always (unless you win the championship) end badly.

I feel for you since you've stuck with them so long....no time like the present to cut your ties and join the Texans! We've never lost a playoff game.

Is the TOMB the official board or is it a spin off like TT? They sound like a bunch of young kids, telling people not to talk to them, stating they are going to have to beat someone up.

Hey Titan fans, better build Bud a new stadium quick or else he will move your team. :specnatz:

We stick with 'em for the payoff I guess. I just fear I'm gonna be too old and too ugly to dance naked when it happens. Hell the ugly's already happened.

I made my bed and stuck with Bud's team, even as an Houston diasopora (sp)....for better...and definately...for worse.

Sorry but as an outsider that has been here a bit I find it frustrating that there isn't more anger towards team progress. My bad. Enjoy the weekend

Wait, you want *more* anger from Texans fan, or fans, in general? I think the mentality of too many fans is childish and takes the joy out of following sports. The Texans have been improving, have coaches and players who work hard and don't have members of the organization embarrass the city. That's all I ask.

Was Johnson injured and if so when?

Was Johnson injured and if so when?

Apparantly suffered a high ankle sprain on that play, which you could see on one shot was very heavily taped. Which was also why was you saw about 60 shots of him on the sidelines while Fatty Fatty Fat Fat chugged his way to 2 yards a carry the rest of the way.

Not sure when exactly but he did not play the second half, severe sprained ankle.

Hervoyel
01-11-2009, 02:21 AM
Interesting. I wondered why "Fatty McButterpants" was the only guy getting carries in the second half. If he were Ronnie Brown I'd be openly wondering if his injury was bad enough to keep him out of the Pro Bowl so Slaton could go and thus rectify the glaring oversight that left him out. Chris Johnson however (even though he's a Titan) easily deserved to be voted in. I'd not be pleased if his injury was enough to keep him out of the game.

01-11-2009, 02:57 AM
I agree with one poster on the Titans board about the delay of game. I'm obviously happy that it played an outcome in them losing since I despise the Titans, but they really should make that like the NBA shotclock. If the playclock goes down to 0, a buzzer or something should go off.

It's 3 in the morning and I still have a big smile on my face after watching the Titans LOSE. You'd think, them being an NFL team and all, they'd know how to HOLD onto the ball. One less turnover and they probably win this game.....Damn, at least the 35-3 fiasco they were on the road. When was the last time the Oilers/Titans had homefield throughout the playoffs?

Me too. I knew the Bud curse would do them in. I was hoping for somthing a little more painful like a last second 40 yd rush that comes up one yard short or blowing a 50 pt lead in the final seconds after Fischer was already soaking in Gatoraide.

I really really don't like the Titans and everything bad that happens to them makes me happy. Is that wrong?

I just want to say that this board maybe needs to go back to the days of respect for others and having posters who enjoyed each other and who could debate without being childish. I don't appreciate some no name poster called Fox, who doesn't know my history here sending out Neg rep and writing "Stupid, pointless post."(above post)I don't think I've ever given neg rep and I've seen some dumb stuff. People need to grow up and at least join in the conversation instead of neg repping and running. Get a set. This is getting ridiculous. It's an opinion, pure and simple from someone with no ties to any of the teams

I agree frog. People sometimes just can't agree do disagree. They get childish and start insulting. Pretty lame.

fixed Bud's wiki page for him...

"Adams was again criticized for his decision not to renew the contract of the team's president, returning to that role himself. Adams is said to have arranged his affairs in such a way as to ensure the team will remain in his family's possession after his death, which appears in no way to be imminent as he has the appearance of a man in remarkably good health for his advanced age. It is widely rumored that Adams made a deal with the devil to give him eternal life, but as a price, his team would never win the Super Bowl."

What I love about that article is that in typical Wikipedia style they have the details all screwed up. They have the "House of Pain" era taking place while Bum Phillips was the coach.

Really, one of worst in franchise history? :spit:

no doubt spec. whoever believes that was one of the worst losses much less playoff losses, really hasn't followed our former Houston Oilers franchise and all its playoff futility.

I can name 5 right off the top of my head that were worse than Saturday's chokejob. Much worse. 4 syllables. 35-3. One Yard Short. Either Elway chokejob. Montana's Swansong. Next.

After this year's Colts comeback against the Titans in Reliant, I thought maybe the curse was on Houston and not on Bud's franchise. Thankfully, its painfully obvious that I was wrong. It's the franchise. They are now approaching Cubs-like status of the NFL.

I called my shot on this thread that it was a leadpipe lock that the Ravens would win and it couldn't have been prettier and it was Same Ole Oilers, Same Ole Titans. Complete chokejobs. The definition of chokejobs.

they are the Oilers Herv. like there is any other possibility other than 'One and done'. count on it.

yeah, there are limits in message board smack. i kinda feel bad for them because I walked in their shoes when the Oilers were in Houston and I have felt their pain (as you and many others have as well), but you don't start wishing death or disease on people because of a freaking football game. no class at all.

its just another piece of proof that the Houston curse is over and was never Houston after all. Its on Tennessee now, and we have yet to have a losing season post-DC. Its definitely a time for optimism.

I don't he meant that it was one of the worst chokejobs. I think he meant that it was one of the worst losses for the franchise. And I can see from where he was coming from just from the standpoint that the team was probably on it's way to a superbowl apperance and a good chance at winning it all also. It always hurts more when you know that you are probably the best team in the playoffs and then you blow it when you outplay your opponent but still get beat.

The 92 oilers did blow it but they still weren't the favorites to go to the superbowl that year and still would have faced one of the best teams of all time in the Cowboys even if they did. I think the Titans fans could smell the title if they could just get by the ravens. That is why I think he felt it was one of the worst of all time for them.

That had to be the worst loss in their history. Like someone else mentioned it is because they had the best record in the NFL and they would have been favored over anyone else left standing.

The Houston Oilers were never in that situation. Sure we all had our hopes, however there was always a team remaining that would have been favored over us (Steelers, etc). Also the Houston Oilers never had homefield throughout.

This was truly their best shot at winning it all. This Super Bowl is totally up for grabs now. All the top seeds are gone except the Steelers and they are very beatable.

Either way if the Eagles beat the Cardinals they are going to play a geographic rival in the Super Bowl, hopefully it will be Baltimore.

I disagree because there is no way the Titans would go 4-0 on the season against the Ravens and the Steelers, home field or not. They were either gonna lose in the divisional round or they were gonna get their mud pushed in by a very motivated and balanced Stillers team.

Obviously their best chance to win it all was when they were one yard away, but I still think that the 93-94 season was the Other Big One That Got Away. For the first time in franchise history the Oilers had a first round playoff bye and a home game in the divisional round only to blow it to the underdog KC Chiefs. The Oilers hadn't lost since week six or so and were the hottest team in the NFL. They finally had a stout defense to match the offense and they still managed to choke it away in the playoffs.

If they'd won that one I think they would've exorcised the Buffalo demons and we would've had an I-45 Super Bowl.

Actually, the '93 Oilers finished 12-4, and had the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs. That was the year they brought in Buddy Ryan as the DC in response to the prior seasons 35-3 debacle. They went into the playoffs on an 11 game winning streak, and they lost their first playoff game (divisional round) to the Joe Montana led Chiefs. Think ball being spiked at Buddy Ryan banner after K.C. TD.

So yes, what happened on Saturday is simply deja vu all over again for the 4th or 5th time.

So yes, what happened on Saturday is simply deja vu all over again for the 4th or 5th time.

Yes, But the cowboys were still the heavy favorite to win it all that year, and they did. They finished 12-4 but without Emmitt for some games at the begining of the season because of a hold out situation. That was a great team. And also, Buffalo was the #1 seed that year, so Houston still had to get by a very good Buffalo team in Buffalo. Not an easy task. There is no one left in these playoffs that you could consider a dominant great team. The Steelers are good but their offense is average at best. And the the Eagles and cardinals, well there still standing but are nothing special. I am not saying that the Titans were a for sure win but man it did look good for them if they would have won.

And also, the Ravens were outplayed by the Titans. It was just those fumbles that did them in. And as I remember, Montana just pretty much outplayed Moon and the Oilers just kinda lost because they got outplayed.

An Eagle/Steeler SB would certainly set the State of Penn on fire!! Man, those fans could get pretty rowdy!! Might be a fun game to watch though. No telling what might get thrown onto the field!

Actually they had the #2 seed. Buffalo was 12-4 and beat the Oilers earlier in week 6, which happened to be their last loss before losing in the playoffs.

You're right - I clearly misremembered.

Well, 48 hours later, I'm still numb, and angry. Titans pissed the game away, pure and simple.

I pondered this question and have this to say...

As good a season as this was, no one on the planet had considered the Titans a Super Bowl contender, so the pain, while nasty, is bearable.

2000 was a hell of a lot worse. The Titans had already been appointed NFL Champs that year, coming off their Super Bowl appearance, having the best record and homefield. That game was a complete and total shock. No one, I mean NO ONE, thought they were losing that game.

This one? I knew a ton of fans, myself included, that wanted no part of the Ravens, knowing it would be a dogfight.

Also, I was at Rich stadium for 35-3. Alltime low for the franchise and me as a fan of any team. You cannot imagine how bad it was to sit in that stadium on a cold crummy day and watch that, then get it bad from the dregs of Western NY as you left the stadium, already dry heaving.

I would also say the 1993 team and '91 teams had higher expectations and greater hurt after the respective playoff losses.

The redeeming thing for me now that I've caught my breath is knowing minus QB and Haynesworth, the club has a terrific future. Just get a frigging playmaker at WR and tinker with the depth and the team is a contender for the next few years. I'm certain with Collins behind center next year and this nucleus it's a damn good team, and likely gonna remember the bitter taste of the end of the season this year. I sure as hell hope so.

As long as Jeff Fisher is the coach of the Titans they'll be a good team. The turnovers killed them yesterday.

And Baltimore seems to have the team of destiny fairy on their shoulder pads this year. They'll be hard for the Steelers to beat I think.

I actually think the Ravens have little left after the Titan game. I saw 6 or 7 guys get treated or didn't return to the game. (Suggs will be doubtful) The Steelers are the opposite, now as healthy as they've been in weeks.

The second Crumpler lost the ball was the first time I screamed that they were going to lose the game. It hit me right there. In the groin. Hard.

We'll see...I've just had this funny feeling about the Ravens since they played the Cowboys..that they were having this charmed season. Maybe it's indigestion!

Titans gave the Ravens every opportunity to win that game. And that's what they did. Fumbles, missed field goals, penalities, interception.

I think you are right. The Titans/Ravens game was brutal. It reminded me of some of the old Steeler/Oilers games from the 70's. But yeah I think the Ravens came out of that game just beat up and a healthy Pittsburgh is waiting for them at home. Not good. I don't think te Titans would beat the Steelers either had they won that game for the same reason. Those 2 teams just had an all out war. Really good game to watch.

he's being questioned by many on the Titans board, and rightfully so. Two consecutive playoff games with a total of what...20 points between them both?

I like Fisher, but his recent teams have really struggled offensively in the playoffs.

The Chris Johnson pick and the way he successfully used him has me more on board with Fisher than last year. Notice how Johnson just torched the Ravens in the 1st half before he got hurt?

I'm convinced Fisher is going to go after Harvin or a playmaker WR in UFA. I think he finally gets it now.

Fisher needs a QB, and the Titans would OWN. Do you want your team heading into the next season with Kerry Collins and Vince Young? Collins played a Tommy Maddox-type role this season. What's he going to do for an encore next season?

If they got what they got...out of Kerry Collins...think what happens if they had a good QB. They had size and talent at TE. They had a great 1-2 punch at RB. They had a great o-line and d-line. Kicker was solid. Coaching was solid except for a few isolated incidents.

Bud screwed the Titans when he drafted VY. Now there's a lot of pride tied up in that pick. You can't go QB in the first round because it admits that VY was a mistake. So you gotta' gamble on a guy later on...to make it look like its just depth and nothing too seriously-minded for the immediate future.

The VY pick was disastrous. 50% based on his talent, possible merchandising revenue, and his on-field potential, and 50% based on Bud's desire to stick it to Houston.

IF you got a receiver, and had to stick with VY and Collins...you need a big possession-type receiver. A guy who can run the quick slant or the curl and get you those clutch passes when it really counts.

Titans either pay Young $13 mil. next season or pay $7 mil. to cut him. He's definitely not worth $13 mil if you ask me.

But you know what...that was a good marketing move for two seasons.

Got any suggestions on who they can get?

Here are the UFAs
Kurt Warner, UFA, Arizona Cardinals
Kerry Collins, UFA, Tennessee Titans
Matt Cassel, UFA, New England Patriots (Rumor he will be franchised)
Jeff Garcia, UFA, Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rex Grossman, UFA, Chicago Bears
Kyle Boller, UFA, Baltimore Ravens
Charlie Batch, UFA, Pittsburgh Steelers
J.P. Losman, UFA, Buffalo Bills
Patrick Ramsey, UFA, Denver Broncos

So really, it's Warner, Collins or Garcia for the caretaker role. There is no chance in hell that the Titans can get any of the rumored big 1st rounders in this year's draft, so right now, in a sense, they're kinda stuck. Based on Fisher's comments about VY (below), I suspect if he wants to turf VY, he will.

(On what he needs to see from Vince Young this offseason)

We expect 100 percent commitment from Vince and will accept nothing less than that.

To me, that sounds pretty direct, as if he's saying to VY - try me. Just try me.

Don't be too sure on the club not admitting a mistake and moving on. They wasted a 2nd rounder on Chris Henry then the next year took Johnson. They got that mulligan right.

I'm sorry but according to most of the population of Texas, it was 100% based on the fact that Vince Young was a WINNER. Or maybe it was "a weiner." Which is it, I don't remember now ...:thinking:

Remember, that Kansas City playoff loss was the last meaningful game in Houston Oiler history. We were up in the fourth quarter and bam...Warren Moon fumbles, the Chiefs score to take the lead a few plays later and that's all she wrote. It didn't hurt as much as Buffalo...which isn't to say it didn't hurt alot, but it might have been the most devastating loss in franchise history. Warren Moon left that offseason and we went 2-14 the next year...Pardee was fired and Fisher replaced him in week 12. The next preseason the Oilers just happen to be playing the Redskins in Tennessee where Bud meets the Nashville Mayor....and the rest is history. Had the Oilers beaten the Chiefs and made it to the Super Bowl that year, win or lose, I think we would be sitting here talking about another Houston Oilers playoff choke.

The Titans should try to resign Collins.

I don't think anybody saw them as going far this last season BEFORE the season started. They certainly weren't considered one of the top AFC teams on this board.

I would maybe think about cutting those VY ties if I were them as well. Seems like that just didn't work out.

I think they give VY another year. Chris Henry didn't win an NCAA title, he didn't get picked number 3 overall, and he wasn't a guy you could market and sell stuff. The VY pick still has a lot of emotional ties with Bud Adams.

To me, from the comment you gave from Fisher, it sounds like all VY has to say is "Yeah, I'm in" and he's the QB again. And he'll meltdown, again, and he'll be somewhere in Canada before anybody can call the cops about him being missing.

They ought to draft a QB in the first round, even if the QB was pegged as a 2nd rounder. Just get one, as long as he has a lot of heart. You don't want any of the senior citizen UFAs. You want to send your team a signal that you know a captain in the huddle is all that's needed to right the ship.

I can't believe I'm actually thinking of ways to help the Titans. What the hell is going on inside my brain?!?! Get it out. GET IT OUT! AAHGHGHHH!
