    As a former Oiler fan, I followed the Titans and really enjoyed the team through the Eddie days, although he may come back Im really leaning towards the Texans, I really like the team and even when the Texans lose they always play tough, and David Carr is without a doubt a very underrated QB in the NFL, I look for the Texans to make a playoff push this season and although the Colts are still a better team I look foward to seeing the Texans improve each season....Go Texans

    some things u should know, ibar harry always negative on whatever the subject may be. Me always positive, another thing after we lose a game every thinks that all the staff and coaches should be fired. Oh and according to most on here D. Davis is not starting RB material ! Last but not least welcome to the board. ENJOY :rolleyes:

    Don't worry..he won't be the last. I expect we'll see quite a few Houston area Titans fans convert to the Texans over the next couple seasons as the Titans finish towards the bottom of the league for a few years and the Texans continue rising.

    Anyway though, welcome to the board. Generally good people around here, the best board in the league without a doubt.

    I'm not sure having the former Titan fans jump ship would be cool because wouldn't they just be bandwagoner's?

    It's possible, but it is also possible that they were die hard Houston Oiler fans, and it just took them this long to come to grips that the Oilers are gone and that Houston has a new team.

    Once the Texans make it big our board will be filled with so many bandwagoners and then left with a bunch of abandoned SNs

    A TRUE DIEHARD HOUSTON Oiler fan would NEVER have supported Bud and what he did!! I don't buy that garbage about supporting the "team" not Bud. Any NFL team is a reflection of the owner, he has the checkbook. JMO!

    Isn't the true meaning of a band wagoner an person that leaves a team when the one they follow stinks and jump on a winning team's band wagon.....one in which they have no formal or geographical ties?

    The Texans have not had a winning season so I am not sure that it applies here.

    Welcome.

    Copy that Tedc,
    Jumping to a losing teams wagon does not make you a bandwagoner. :) Welcome to the board. I hope you will enjoy the intelligent and insightful discussion.

    I have said all along that if anyone wants to get on the wagon, now is the time to do it because after this season, you will be labeled a bandwagoneer because from here on we are in the playoffs and Super Bowl.

    This offseason is dragging so I thought I would add to it. :crying: In order to to reach the amount of humility I will never attain I must say it took Year 2 before I jumped on board. As a lifelong Oiler fan from Knoxville since the greatest draft pick ever 78' Longhorn, I tried to root for the Titans since I have resided here in Nashville for a decade and they essentially were the old Oilers. I went to a few of the games when they played at Vandy and even jumped on the wagon for their SB run. I never vibed with them though and only went to one game at Adelphia over the years. It felt like I lost my team completely until the Texans came around and now I feel like I have my team back. :worm: I was fortunate to catch the game here last year and it was by far the most fun I had last football season. Well sorry to ramble just thought I'd pass some time maybe the vols and horns can rumble in the Rose Bowl this year and see who the real UT is. :bowdown:

    Welcome Aboard

    And I'd just like to go an record as being a big fan of Domanick Davis....and I do think that he can get the job done. I think that a lot of our players are good.

    However I'd also like to go on record as stating that, I'm not fond of Mckinney, Payne, Billy Miller or Chris Palmer.........they should all go.
