We are told to get over it but does anyone think that VY was drafted for any other reason than Bud wanted to stick it to Houston again . Now VY has come apart like a cheap rug and set the Titans back in the QB dept ... that's funny .
I guess they dont understand that we in Texas have ummm backbones and very long memories. I just love how Tack fan try to claim the oiler greats as their own. Moon, Jefferies , Givens, Matthews, The TYLER FREAKING ROSE.
I worked for Red McCombs and I ran into Mr. Earl Campbell on a promotional day and I told him I grew up watching the oilers and how hurt I was the franchise I rooted for left me high and dry. He said he understood and he was disappointed. I asked him which team he was loyal to and he told me that he played for Houston and for the state of Texas and he was an will always be remebered as an oiler and he had no loyalty to either the Texans or the Titans.
this was in 2002 so maybe things could have changed.
