So you are saying you are exploiting Earl for your TT username?
Why do we have to overthink everything? Why can't a lovely gesture that would make everybody happy just be that?
Earl is Houston Football. Houston loves him more than anyone. I cried when Bum came out on the field last year before last year's Bengals game, and I'll likely cry on Saturday.
McNair has honored Oilers in the past. I went to the Luv Ya Blue reunion years ago that McNair hosted, and it is one of my favorite memories. I met Bethea, Pastorini, Culp, Dr. Doom, Bum, bunches of folks in the way back machine. And they appreciated that McNair wanted them a part of the Texans, even if they weren't officially part of our HoF history, because Houston has their memories. They are our history.
(Robert Brazile looked like he could still play. Big dude for a LB, especially for his era. Ahead of his time).
