That 1993 team was my favorite.

BTW, how did you become a Houston Oilers fan living in Tennessee? I thought most fans out there were Steelers fans before Bud moved out there.

So what do you think about the Predators this year? I noticed you are an NHL fan in another thread.

Yeah, I gathered that however since he lives out there I thought he might know a little about the Predators. They have been talking about moving and I was curious what's going on with them now.

I guess you guess just don't understand the rivalry that this organization and the Pittsburg Steelers have. It goes way back even before the Texans were a team. Back to the Oilers days.

Sure, we understood that even when you were in diapers watching Dale Earnhardt making a bunch of left hand turns in that #2 car. However the Oilers don't exist anymore and the team they morphed into are more dislikeable than the Steelers.

We ALL know about the rivalry back in the day. With the Steelers, keep in mind that most of us in this forum were Oiler fans at one point. and it sucked being beaten by Pittsburgh. But there really is no need for something like that. It's just classless.

I thought it was great when the Titans were stomping on that flag. It's football for god sakes, and those teams shouldn't like each other when they are competing for home field advantage and know that their is a good chance that they will face each other in the post season. They played a great game and beat the hell out of the Steelers, and showed them no mercy. That is how a dominant team's attitude should be. I wish that that kind of grit would rub off on the Texans.

I hope these two teams match up again in the playoffs, because it should be a great game again. I just hope the Steelers take the next one and I think they will. They both have a similar game plan and formula for winning, but in the post season I'll have more confidence in Ben than I will in Collins.

You are 8 years older then I am and I have no idea what Earnheardt even drives. I assume a race car of some type? I have better things to do then watch a bunch of necks drive cars around a track. Most ridiculous 'sport' I have ever heard of.

I have not missed a game under the name 'Titans' and watched ever Oilers game that was televised since I was 9. So don't start a rant about me not knowing my teams history or about my age.

And the star of the Luve Ya Blue Oilers, ol' #34, said he never played in Tennessee and was never a Titan. It doesn't translate. People in Tennessee have to accept their own history instead of dry-humping a history that they never experienced or knew about until Uncle Slug pimped his team to them.

Same franchise, but completely different teams.

p.s. A "rivalry" is usually a two way street. The Steelers do not view your franchise as anything other than a speed bump on the way to their multiple Super Bowl champships.

I'd dissagree here....this is a storied rivalry that the Earl Campbell Oilers started. Like it or not, this franchise has some history.

Ah, some Tack fan who isn't old enough to remember the Luv Ya Blue era trying to tell us about the Oilers.

GTFO. You're no Oilers fan and you certainly don't deserve to claim them.

Does anyone really associate the Ravens with the Browns franchise history? No.

The Tennessee Titans are not the Houston Oilers and they never will be.

Actually, if they want to embrace a history of choking, then they can be my guest. It's not my team.

well, since the Browns actually own their own history its different. The Ravens do still have intense rivalries with the Steelers and Bengals...teams they had intense rivalries with since they were the Browns.

Why the hell couldn't Houston keep the Oilers history? Maybe we Bud goes to hell, we can do something about it (keep the history, but the hell with the rest).

Maybe your age is getting to you but I can not help when I was born. I lived through the Moon era and the Bills game. If you were a true Oilers fan you would understand the Pit rivalry but maybe in your older age you have forgotten. The depends are near the pharmacy BTW.
