Default vy fans

I wasn't at last years game, but based on what you've read and heard leading into this weeks game, should we expect more vy fans to show up in their burnt orange #10's in the numbers they did last year?

Any chance common sense grabs hold of these folks and allows them to let go of the past?

I dont see a problem with Texas fans rooting for VY.

They just need to keep it out of our building.

I cheer for him. I want him to do well....but he plays for the Titans. I hope he catches a beatdown if he plays on Sunday.

I don't think there'll be as many. It's been a year, and he's had his dance.

I think we will see as many Titans jerseys as we ever have before. And no doubt many of them will be #10.

Default Re: vy fans

I've been listening to more sports radio and reading more articles this week than at any time in the season - and the consensus I seem to find is that it will be the same as last season. I'm prepared to be very angry about that while watching the game Sunday. LOL

The guy in front of me says he's going to wear a Vince jersey but root for the Texans still. What the hell is up with that? If I were 21 I'd make sure to "accidentally" spill beer on his oh-so-nice jersey.

I don't know if they are clinging to the past so much. They just like Vince.
If McNair and Kubiak did not foresee this happening, they are morons.
What I don't get, and really cannot understand is Houston people that root for Tennessee. I just don't get it.
The minute the NFL announced Houston would get a franchise, the Texans were my team. We've seen them grow from the ground up.
Heck, I even rooted for the Titans in their Super Bowl, but now I could care less.

i would've actually thought he would be unlucky if he didnt leave your house in one piece

i love it when fans act like they're going to hurt a player eventhough everyone knows if they ever actually tried to do anything to an nfl player they'd end leaving the field like trent green

Cool Re: vy fans

There are a LOT of UT fans in Houston that like Vince. They were never Texans fans. But they like to say "I would have been a Texans fan if they drafted VY" (I have UT grad friends who say this).

No, they would still just be VY fans.

Here are my feelings on the Vince Young jersey matter:

1) This is America

2) It's just a football game


I hope the worst thing that happens to me this year is that I see a VY jersey at the Texans/Titans game at Reliant.

There's a problem when it seems 65% of the fans are wearing VY jerseys, 10% Other Titans jerseys, 4% "omg, they're not even playing the Texans today" jerseys, and the rest Texans.
