Yes, but he was just moving across town. Playing in Houston in 1996 when Houstonians knew they were leaving. Playing in Memphis in 1997 when Memphis knew they werent staying for long. Memphis just got their first major league team 2 or 3 years ago. In 1998, they played at Vandy to home crowds of 30,000 or smaller most of the time. All 3 years the Oilers went 8-8, amazing for not being able to play in the same home stadium for consecutive years. In 1999, we went 13-3, playing in the stadium built for the Titans. Sure the players were better, but the home crowds of 68000, surely didnt hurt. Other teams have injuries yes, but when you lose 160+ games to starters in a season, a 5-11 team can be expected.
