I'm an Eagles fan but man I used to love you guys back in the day for playing like that.

Anybody else here, miss those days?

Rep to Eagles fan!

Jerry Glanville! :facepalm:

I will admit though, they were some fun times.

I don't miss Bud Adams, Jerry Glanville, or Ladd Herzeg.

Lots and lots of players that I miss starting with most of the O-Line, and Ray Childress.

From a standpoint of what did they have then that we don't have now, the glaring and obvious answer to that question is Mike Holovac!

When I watched that video I was smiling the whole time. Used to love the AFC Central rivalries as a kid. But then I remembered Glanville's act wearing thin and his "Texas can kiss my butt" speech from Atlanta after he got run out of town.

It was fun at the time after so many down Oiler years, but the Glanville act looks kinda lame now. It's probably how a Titans fan will look at Cortland Innegan when he's playing for his next team. (Well, that assumes they even watch the UFL, though.)

Too bad the time I was old enough to realize what football was (1996), the Oilers left. :dontknowa:crying:

BTW, I had to post this, Dan Pastorini's flak jacket: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTLM8MGD0b0&feature=related

What about Al Smith, Sean Jones, Bubba McDowell, Chris Dishman et al??

Yep - lots of players to look back on with great memories (hence the Mike Holovac praise).

I love the look of those jerseys, a shame Houston couldn't retain the rights to the Oilers. I wonder if its still possible for the Texans to wear an alternate jersey with similar colors & an all white helmet? Or would that leave McNair open to getting sued by Bud Adams?

All of those guys were unstoppable on Tecmo Superbowl (I still got a copy.)

I thought we were talking about the forgotten heroe's of Houston football...

Glanville years? Gregg Bingham ring a bell? Al Smith?

I could go on & on & on about 40+ years of fail re: Houston football...
