    I did not know this. Losing Pacman is going to hurt them more than they realize....fortunately for us.

    Yeah. They want to spout off about our O-line, but even it wasn't last.

    That's funny....I seem to recall the stories were even worse last year about the Titans.

    Feel good about yourselves now.....Because you know when the season starts they will be singing a different tune about those Titans.

    I don't understand why your average titanfan always refers to last season as being a great success. They didn't win the game at the end of the season that would have put them in the playoffs, hence...no playoffs. They had a player suspended for stomping on an opponents noggin. Their qb was almost last in his passer rating (and he was their first round pick). Their defense was dead last in yards surrendered.

    And yet they always say it was a great thing.

    The Texans know what the bottom is like and I don't believe they have any intention of returning there soon....the titans however, are about to find what it's like to have the crap beat out of them on Sunday afternoons.

    going to be tough going for the Titans, no Bruce Mathews on that line to help out

    no Eddie George to help out unless Chris Henry can do something and defensively no kearse, maybe Griffin will help out but pac-man and his stupidity really hurts talentwise in that secondary, teamwise, who knows they might be better

    Probably because they only won a handful of games the previous two seasons combined and came one game from the playoffs with one of the worst defenses in the NFL in a "rebuilding" season. I thought that team was wildly successful last season despite having a sieve for a defense and starting a rookie QB with no real go to WR.

    wolf.....Mathews and George have been long gone....

    true vin.. I was comparing the 1995 season when the oilers were rebuilding versus the rebuilding the Titans are doing now.. I realize it is apples to oranges in this version but all i had to go on

    Success can only be measured by achieving your goals, and their goal was to reach the playoffs, which was within their grasp.....all they had to do was win the last game. IMO, they were no more successful than the Texans. Home during the playoffs as we were.

    vince had some pretty good receivers last season...which team were you looking at vinny? whether or not he can put the ball in the right spot is probably not fair to those wr's, which is why receivers were not knocking the door down to play for Bud's Crew this season.

    Well, then, maybe this is the season to see if Vince is Superman.

    The big story for his junior year at Texas was that his receivers were all too young and inexperienced for Texas to win it all.

    But then again, it is hard to make chicken salad outta chicken beaks.

    Technically not correct although 5 of the 8 games were very poorly attended (four in the 20's and 30's but only one -- the last one -- was less than 20).

    Three of the games that year were very well attended -- Miami , SF, and Pitt ... one 47k and two at 50k+

    Bingo! Why shouldn't we be optimistic.

    You guys should be able to understand that. In the dictionary is a pic of a Texans fan right next to the word optimistic. :goodnight
