Default My Oilers/Titans/Texans story; am I alone?

I've been an Oilers fan since the Charlie Hennigan, Charlie Tolar and George Blanda. When the Oilers moved I did not like Fisher and his brand of football, which was downright Capers-like in those days. I lost interest.

Then came the Texans. I got interested until Casserly and Capers and Carr and the team stunk it up. A couple years ago I faded. Games were boring and team wasn't happening. This year team was a freaking joke. An embarassment. I paid for my NFL Sunday Ticket but couldn't bear to watch.

Now comes Vince Young, ours for the taking. The guy is a big time major league leader with skills to match. He IS what you want your franchise to be about, talent and success and never giving up and having the will to win. He's QB equivalent of Earl Campbell.

So now the Texans are planning on taking a really excellent RB from USC instead, a guy who will have some effect on the team, but won't be the salvation of the team. It's a mistake. It's a rube's play. Sure, having a quick RB who can cut (better than DD, maybe) is a good idea. 1st pick in the draft? Nah.

If Vince Young goes to the Titans old Oilers fans will consider switching their allegiance. They are not fickle. It's about Vince Young who is a once in a lifetime talent, like Earl Campbell. If the Texans pass him him up maybe they don't deserve our allegiance.

I was a huge Oiler fan, win or lose, good or bad, I stuck by that team. In fact that 35-3 game still brings a slight tear to my eye.

But the Oilers are much like that first wife who runs off with your best friend and breaks your heart. You wish her only the worst and hope she regrets leaving you. Never will I rout for them. Okay well maybe if it takes a Titan win to get the Texans into the playoffs, but thats it.

So now on to Vince Young. A home town hero that every Long horn fan in this state is clamering for. Why? From what I keep hearing and reading the only scope Vince is even on is Houston's. Every other team and every scout in the leauge has Bush being the #1 prospect. In fact Lienart in manys eyes is still rated ahead of Young. So really why shouldnt we take Lienart if we are all so sure that Carr isnt the one? If the fans who claim that they would give up there season tickets, not watch the games, and rout for the titans are at all serious then shouldnt it be Lienart they scream for? Or is this truely a Homer thing?

Either way, GO TEXANS!

If I read this one more time about Bush or Young, I think I might go over the deep end.

If as a "Texans fan" your loyalty hinges on whether or not they draft Vince Young, just head on over to the Titans MB and get started, why wait? I think I speak for most of us true Texans fans when I say good riddance. We will be here, regardless of anything, bad drafts, bad records, it doesn't matter. Oh, and when we start winning, we will be the ones kicking the rest of you guy's a**es off the bandwagon when you try to jump on! Anybody else with me?

I dont believe alot of you are giving Carr a chance.This guy is one of the toughest SOBs at the QB spot (aka Bradshaw).IMO you take Bush,Build the OL with FA vets.Draft defense in the 2nd and 3rd RD. and take TE(D.Thomas) in the 4th,then draft OL 5th and 6th RD.Get Abraham via FA.We are not going to Superbowl next year,lets build for 2-3 years from now.

I root for the team, not the player. If we switched players with the Titans completely, I would still root for the Texans. Where's the loyalty these days?

4 years was my chance. Are we supposed to give him a perfect line, the perfect compliment to AJ, the perfect TE, the perfect RB and then if he messes up, it must be the new coaching?Maybe we can draft a guy in the 7th who can put his hair behind his ears while he is on the bench. I'm tired of excuses for him. At 2-14, there is not one player that deserves a shot more than another and the team as a whole needs to be evaluated.

Ditto. Why not just title the thread for what it really is.

What is the Fartman's 40 time, bench press, and do you see him more of a split end or a tight end.
