Memphis is the largest city in Tennessee. Not only that, but Tunica is just outside Memphis. For those not in the know, Tunica is the second largest casino town in the country. Many tourists to buy up remaining tickets every week. Great. Now I miss Tunica. Haven't been in three years. I need another vacation.

July 2006 census metro population Nashville has 200,000 more people than Memphis. Nashville also has a greater per capita income. I lived in M-town for a year and a half and can say it was the worst experience of my life. That dump had no chance what so ever to get an NFL team. Hell, Elvis himself would've never moved a team into that dump. Memphis is too small and way too poor to have a NFL team. I'm shocked they have any sort of pro team there.

I was in Memphis last year for the Liberty Bowl. I was surprised at what a dirty, broken, run down town it was. The ribs at Corky's were great though.

Have a link for that??? Not only does Memphis have the larger population, but Shelby County alone houses nearly a million people, which just so happens to be Nashville's market population (70 mile radius) in the NFL. Median income is also about the same when comparing counties. From a statistical standpoint, Memphis can support a team on it's own.

http://www.census.gov
The 2005 population of the entire 13-county Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area was 1,498,836,[4] making it the largest and fastest-growing metropolitan area in the state. ( This doesn't include Clarksville which has over 100,00 ppl and is 35 miles away) The greater Memphis metropolitan area area, including the adjacent areas of Mississippi and Arkansas, has a population of 1,260,581. This makes Memphis the second largest metropolitan area in Tennessee, surpassed only by metropolitan Nashville. When comparing city income, Nashville people average 5 thousand more per person and that doesn't include Belle Meade which averages 198,000 per year. Memphis is a dump and I speak from experience. It's one of the poorest cities in America. It's located in the poorest region in America so explain to me how on Earth they could field an NFL team? Memphis' avg income is 17,000 so how can they afford to pay their bills let alone football tickets? Cities like Louisville, L.A., and Toronto could support a team but don't mentiont he dump of Memphis of as an option because you couldn't be more wrong. Why don't you stay on the Jags mb and leave these good Texan fans alone...

All I can say Arrow, is that I was completely wrong about your defense... ... 6-2 is awesome, no doubt! Other than that, Vince is WORSE than I thought he was. The guy really isn't a good quarterback.. Athlete yes, QB NOT!

70 yards?

No way does VY make some of the throws that KC made that day. It's just not in him right now. And honestly, I think he would have made his injury worse against his hometown team, fulfilling the Madden curse. Then again, a QB rating of 35 kind of fulfills it anyway.

Considering L-Dub alone put up 100+ on that thing you call a D I would not be so quick to judge.

Last years team leaned on Young and the D let us down. This year’s team helps Young when he is down and the D is stepping up.

See this is how a team goes 6-2 to start a season. I know I know as a Cow fan you have no frame of reference.

Talk all the crap you want ... Here are three truths you'd better start accepting....

a) Vince is terrible (Matt Leinart, David Carr and Cleo Lemmon think Vince sucks)
b) you will always be 'a yard short'.....
c) As long as the fat man and his rug are around, the Titans will always be the brides-maid and will NEVER be the bride...

Learn it... Love it.... Live it!!!!
