The Tennessee uniforms won't be old Oiler uniforms. They will just be regular Titan jerseys but a solid blue with light blue numbers. Didn't they wear these uniforms during an ESPN game last year or year before. I think they are going with a more alternate jersey rather than a "throwback". They can't wear Oilers uniforms anyway, since this is a different franchise.

Actually, it is the same franchise, different name.

Which is why the Titans still have ALL of the old Oilers' records as part of the team (as well as the smurf...errrr...colombia blue in their current uniforms). Plus, they retired Earl's number 34 a couple of years ago (to his credit, he refused to attend the ceremony as he said he never played in Tennessee and he was never a Titan).

Good to hear that they won't be playing as Oilers, tho'! (not that I thought they would, but it would have been pretty funny! :p )

This is more than just a name change, this is now a totally different franchise...I don't care what Bud Adams says. I just don't see how the Titans can benefit comming out in old Oiler uniforms, the Titan fans would not show up for the game. They hated the Houston Oilers. They don't want any ties to the Oilers. They wanted their own franchise, they got it.

Are the Texans going to have a hard time stopping the run again? I think so & that wears down the defense and controls the clock. Turnovers, there not giving any, can the Texans take away? Maybe, but don't count on it. Just when you think you have containment, McNair bootlegs or they run a mis-direction. The Titans have lost both home games this season, would you expect them to lose three in a row? I was going to wait for Ogre but I'm beating him to the punch this time-

If Dom starts to feel pressure from the top to open up the offense earlier and play to win, then the I like the Texans chances.

Yeah, I completely agree with you. Bud should have just started the Titans as a new franchise with their own records.

But that's not the Bud we all know and love! :hehe:

I remember that "throwback" uni you mentioned from last year. It seems to be more of an alternate one to me (like the battle red jerseys for the Texans), rather than a "throwback". I mean, they haven't even been the Titans for a decade and they want to go retro?!? whatever. It's more about Bud's pocketbook than anything...

That's funny, because I was just thinking the same exact thing about Green Bay before last night's game. Texans win 20-7.

no doubt, but my boast has a stat to back it up. the cheifs were giving up a league high 162yds a game, but the titans were giving up a league high 5.5yds a carry. although they stuffed aman green last night, that number is still prob around 5yds a carry. if we keep DD between the tackles and the line gives him some semblence of a cut back, then i think DD will rip a few big'ens into the secondary.

The third uniform, is called alternate.

After yesterday's impressive win against GB, that will serve for a brighter future in the Titans plans.

Thompson 2 interceptions, Chris Brown 148 yds., Steve McNair 208 yds. 2 TD passes, Fleming (rookie) got a great TD pass. Rookies are stepping up, and that's a great sign. The injured players will recover, except for Sirmon and Zach Piller, both are IR.

The refs called ugly plays against us...they called some plays awfuly. Like Samari Rolle's interception being overruled and two other calls that were parcial to GB.

Is going to be a good football game next Sunday against your team, with the Jags and Texans losses, things at the AFC South are more than interesting.

We need some team to stop the Colts, though. :woot
