Re: Will you root for the fake Oilers/Titans (aka Bud Adams)?
The record for the first 8 years of the Oilers/Titans in the NFL was 39-71-2 (from 1970-77 after the merger).
The record for the Texans first 8 years in the NFL was 40-72.
Actually very similar except for the fact that the Texans were an expansion team starting from scratch playing in a league of teams that have existed for decades with the exception of Jax, Cleveland, and Carolina. The Oilers had already existed 10 years and were primarily playing in a conference of teams either the same age or younger than them.
