Sorry

Playoffs are games played after the 16 game season. Typically played in January.

I know i know this is a lot to take in all at once but games are actually played after regular season. As a .500 hopeful Texan fan it is hard to take in all at once; but some teams plays football after regular season is played.

Choking is the mechanical obstruction of the flow of air from the environment into the lungs or what the Oilers/Titans do every time they reach the post season.

You seem to forget that most of us were Oilers fans long before you were. I know you are slowly catching up however we've experienced a lot more playoff choking and failure than you have.

Sure, it's nice to have your team in the playoffs however it sucks to high heaven to have high hopes and watch them fail in the most cruel ways. When it's all said and done you are almost better off as a fan if your team wasn't in the playoffs.

Let's see, what stands out ...

1989 Loss at home to Bubby flippin Brister and the Steelers in the first round.

1990 Killed by the Bengals 41-14 in the first round.

1991 Blew a 21-10 halftime lead and choked up at least 2 4th and longs in the closing minute to John Elway and the Broncos which would have ended the game only to lose 26-24

1992 Led Buffalo 35-3 in the 3rd Qtr in the first round only to make history by setting the record for worst postseason choke in NFL history which still proudly stands today.

1993 Earn first round bye and 2nd round home playoff game by winning their last 11 regular season games. Will things be different this season? No, Joe Montana and the Chiefs come into the Dome and win 28-20 as former Longhorn then Chief Keith Cash fires the ball at a picture of Buddy Ryan after scoring a TD that helps seal the deal.

1999 The Titans almost choke away another 1st round home game by blowing another late game lead however are spared by a controversial kick off return some called the Music City Miracle. Others argue that the Titans player made an illegal forward pass on the return as one ESPN anaylist called it the Immaculate Deception. Bud Adams karma would soon catch up to them in the Super Bowl though as they fall one yard short of tying the game as the clock goes down to zero. The new fans in Tennessee would quickly learn that heartbreak is all one gets with their newly stolen team. At this point I am SO glad this team is no longer ours because after all of that I would have jumped out a window.

2000 The Titans earn home field throughout for the first time in their history. Would this be the road back to the Super Bowl for them to FINALLY end the heartbreaks and chokes to finally come home a champion? Of course not. The Ravens come in and easily win 24-10 as once again their season ends in heartache and disappointment.

2002 Facing the Oakland Raiders on the road with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line the Titans appeared to be in good shape late in the first half leading 17-14 on the road. However, 2 costly fumbles deep in Raiders territory gave the Raiders a 24-17 halftime lead. The Titans would go on to yet another postseason failure losing 41-24.

2003 Another postseason failure as the Pats take the lead 17-14 late in the 4th Qtr. The Titans stall at midfield on the following drive to concede yet another season ending in disappointment.

2007 Titans faced the Chargers in the first round. For much of the first half the Titans dominated the game, but they could not take full advantage of great field position and only held a 6-0 lead at halftime. In the second half the Chargers would come alive, scoring 17 unanswered points to beat the Titans 17-6 and yet another postseason down the drain.

2008 The Titans dominate the regular season with the best record in the NFL earning for the 2nd time in their history home field throughout. Many are penciling them in for the Super Bowl. Just like last time in 2000 when they had home field advantage throughout they had to face the Ravens at home again. Would the Titans avenge that 2000 loss? Of course not as yet another season ends in heartbreak for Bud Adams and his powder blue cronies. The Titans leave the field in shame after losing 13-10. At this point most of the fans in Tennessee are starting to get the picture of how this all works.

So if you want to compare our former team to our current team, here is the final tally.

Oilers/Titans: 41 years in the NFL 0 Lombardi Trophies.
Texans: 7 years in the NFL 0 Lombardi Trophies.

BA is the only bandwagon fan I know that chooses a historically choking team.

Houston fans had little choice since we live here. BA decided that he didn't want to root for a winning home team and picked Slug's franchise, happily changing jerseys wherever they go, because he has a thing for choking, I guess. There is a personality flaw in there somewhere for those that want to psychoanalyze it.

If you had actually cared enough about your team they would still be in Houston and not the dud of a franchise you have right now. Seven seasons and counting of not having a winning year. Must be fun to expect failure each year. Have you gotten so accustom to it that losing is just another thing that happens for the Texans?

Are you really that ignorant? You have been schooled repeatedly about the Oiler's departure. Please, for the love of God come up with some new material.

And here's a little history lesson for your pathetic, display in futility of a franchise. They've gone 8 seasons and 6 seasons without a playoff birth. A couple of times five seasons. That's a combined 24 years for a team that's only been around 50 (and that doesn't include a couple of years here or there. No wonder Dud Adams and his uneducated fans don't realize that the franchises winning percentage is .495. Or should I say, their losing percentage is .505.

So please, quit acting like the Tinnbreds are anything but a losing, choking POS. Win a Super Bowl before you cast stones. Hell Tampa has won one and their fans are really, pretty classy. *realizes the futility in trying to discuss, class with a fan of "Pud's" team*

I always forget you aren't in Tennessee. Why in the world would you volunteer for the abuse of being a fan of Bud's team especially when you have historically successful franchises in your own state?

We stick it out and root for our home team so we had no choice. I guess it is just a Texas pride thing or something.

I follow and like the 9ers but stick by the team I chose. Why didn't you become a Cowboys fan when the Oilers left?

Wouldn't "going in the right dirrection" imply that you are getting more wins then in the previos year?

That's certainly a very significant method of measuring improvement. It's not the only one though and you know that as well as I do. The 2006 Texans were 6-10, in 2007 they improved by two games to 8-8. The 2008 Texans did not improve on that 8-8 record but they were clearly a better team than the previous season, even if the results didn't appear in the W/L column.

Statistics clearly show this. My eyes tell me this. I keep the Texans progress in perspective. We reached .500 a year sooner than the Cowboys did and we'll get over .500 a year later than they did.

You know, the Buc's were legendary losers and finished under .500 in 19 out of their first 21 seasons but when Bucs fan and Titan fan start talking smack to one another only one of those guys can say "Ring, STFU".

At the other end of the spectrum you have the Houston Oilers. Winners of two AFL titles they have since gone a remarkable 48 years without another one. I hope the Texans can avoid a drought like that.

You're just ignorant, man. Caring about the team had absolutely nothing to do with the monumental greed of Slug and gigantic ego of the mayor at the time.

But just keep spewing your stupidity. You remove all doubt by doing so.

What you'll never understand is hometown loyalty. You'd rather just be Chokeboy.

I guess what will your assesment be then when your team fails to win 13 games this season? Uh oh, you know that won't happen this year, so then they must be heading in the wrong direction...man, that's got to be tough to take !

I was just giving you a hard time but at the end of the day I still think the Texans have over looked there secondary and it will come back to bite them. Without improved S play and better coverage by the CBs you guys will float in that 7-9 win area until your O starts to drop off and the team looks to rebuild. As AJ gets older he is going to want to start going to the playoffs and looking for that ring. Its only a matter of time that it either happens on this team or he moves on. He is 28 and probably has about 4 to 5 more productive seasons in him. If you don't make the playoffs this season his days are numbered as a Texan IMO.
