You're joking right? I still get on people that admit they attended any game during those 2 lame duck seasons. At that point they were already the Tennessee Oilers just being forced to play in Houston because Bud had no plan. He never intended on moving the team and was just using Nashville as a ploy to blackmail the city of Houston again. When that failed he had to move and had no where to play so he had to stay in Houston for a couple of more seasons. When that went so bad he decided to go to Memphis because Nashville wasn't ready for him. The Memphis fans didn't support the Oilers at all. The people in Nashville didn't care either until Bud was forced to change the name.
So with that in mind hardly anyone cared in Nashville until the team became the Titans. So in many's minds that was the first real season and they just so happened to go to the Super Bowl that season.
BTW, those people in Nashville aren't too supportive when the Titans aren't winning. They still haven't been tested too much however during a couple of poor seasons they were no showing like crazy. Just let them go 10 years of miserable seasons and you will see how supportive those fans are.
