Hey MikeTard, how’s your two kids? What do you think are the odds of somebody claiming to be this goober up above on an internet message board? Guys everywhere thinking “if I were just him in real life.” HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Is this Mike Vrabel giving us a pep talk on accepting mediocrity??

 

Exactly my thoughts.  So what if the Titans have been less shitty than the Browns or some other teams?  Ultimately it has been 20 years of failure when you look at the trophy shelf.

 

Here's something interesting of note.  Check out Mike's list of teams with more wins than the Titans:

 

1---New England 263 wins

2---Pittsburgh 218 wins

3---Indy 216 wins

4---Green Bay 204 wins

5---Philly 200 wins

6---Baltimore 199 wins

7---Seattle 193 wins

8---Denver 188 wins

9---New Orleans 182 wins

10---Dallas 171 wins

10---NY Giants 171 wins

11---Tennessee 170 wins

 

There are 11 teams with more wins, and 10 of those teams won Super Bowls.

To be honest Titans should have At least 2 Super bowls from the early 2000s. We had some pretty great teams. I think our 2002 or 2003 team was ranked pretty high on this top 30 greatest NFL teams of all time list that came out. I seen the list earlier this year so I might be wrong on the years. I was actually pretty surprised we were acknowledged on such a list. I think they even had us over teams that won Superbowls. So of course it wasn't just a list of teams not to win Superbowls...It includes Superbowl winning teams. I think 98 Vikings was on there to. But that just shows you how great those teams were that we had.

This should result in a banning.  This arbitrary 20 year record bullshit and the goddamn montage. 

 

The team existed for almost 40 years in Houston and most of the good Titans players early on (along with the front office and coaches) were Oilers.

 

Bottom line is that the Titans have been bad or mediocre for far too long.  The bar should be the 1999-2003 period where the team was winning 11-13 games in the regular season and making playoff runs.

I appreciate the sentiment and positive spin, Mike, but telling myself "at least I'm not a Jags or Browns fan" doesn't help me excuse the mediocrity that I have helped finance for the last 20 years, to the tune of several thousands of dollars per year. I'm no bandwagon fan but I'm starting to think that money would be better spent someplace else.
