    Actually for all the ****ing whining and bitching I just read about Bud Adams in particular... it does matter.


    Everyone including Sawdustman should STFU (sorry dude) cause Bud went all the f in to get the best QB to play the game INCLUDING trying to have him in some ownership role.

    So all this bs'n about how Bud tried nothing and people are hi-fiving a post saying they are glad he never won a Superbowl makes me sick and honestly sad to be a Titans fan. Have some damn class. This season sucks but damn things wouldn't even exist like this if it wasn't for Bud. Even the NFL won't give him his fair due can we at least not hate the guy that made the Titans?

    By the way, things can actually get worse...

    I am not angry with bud, my whole point was asking what IF questions. What if we won the superbowl, what if we beat the patriots in 2003, what if we drafted cutler over young, you could ask what if questions all dam day about every dam thing!!!!! I have no beef with bud, I actually liked the fact that he tried to get Manning.

    I really doubt getting into the Manning race earlier would have landed him. We threw everything at him and he still went Denver.

    If Peyton Manning were a Titan...he'd also be part owner.

    we should also be focused on who we can get to renew this franchise other than who we didn't get and what if we got them.

    I am thankful Bud used his last shred of energy trying to bring Peyton here.

    It's a shame we couldn't pull it off and Bud was left seeing Hasselbeck, Locker, and Fitzpatrick before he died.

    There are three reasons Peyton chose Denver and not us:

    1. John Elway
    2. Mike Munchak and Chris Palmer
    3. Stupid fans

    Peyton probably took one look at Munch/Palmer and made up his mind right then and there. Also, Peyton said it himself... he was turned off by the circus atmosphere. He's a normal person, and he doesn't like to be worshiped. Our stupid fans can't do anything right.

    At the time, it really made more sense for Peyton to join us. We were #2 in pass protection. And Kenny/Nate looked to be as good if not better than Demaryius/Decker - at the time. That's because they were dealing with Tebow. I really thought Peyton was gonna come here. Absolutely crushed when it didn't happen.

    Jesus... I can only imagine the attention and hype we'd get. Our stadium would've been packed and we wouldn't let many opposing fans in anymore. Place would've been rocking and just as loud as the Seahawks and Chiefs stadiums.

    Our franchise is cursed. Only way to break the curse is to get rid of every last Oiler connection and never hire another one again.

    UT fans always be ruining stuff.

    Seriously they do. Bunch of sunshiners and probably the dumbest ass fan base in the SEC outside of Alabama and Auburn.


    If Peyton was playing here just imagine it. Crowd wearing UT **** to the games. Singing Rocky Top, jerking off in their seats.

    95% of male and female UT fans would suck Peyton Manning off no questions asked.

    Sales of Broncos gear in Knoxville increased 8,842% when he went to Denver. Stick bundles.

    Just awful fans. Awful college fans, awful pro fans. Just don't bring up football once you pass Cookeville headed east.


    The concept of "VFL" is so ****ing retarded it makes my ears bleed.


    Edit: I went to school there and lived in Knoxville for nearly 8 years. I love UT but ugh our fans... God they suck.

    Yes, but you can say the same things...maybe a little worse about "most" SEC fan bases. I mean could you image the amount of meltdown that IS going to happen when sabin either retires or takes the texas job. Freaking state would have to declare a real state of emergency. And I am serious, the governor would have to call out the national guard.
