    I know most people don't really care about this stuff, but did Steve and Eddie ever wear the light blue jerseys? Maybe just one year - 2003.

    Seems weird not to frame the navy jerseys they were known for.

    I'm not big on retiring numbers, but if the organization is going to refuse to re-issue them, we might as well make it official.

    Good move. These numbers wouldn’t look right on anyone else

    I'm with Fry on this one, but if it is going to be done, those are the two I would pick.

    The Titans wouldn't be the Titans without those 2.

    While we had others in key positions... those 2 made this team beast.

    EG is the franchise leader in rushing yards, not sure what more you’d look for to retire a # for a team.
    McNair is just pretty good and probably the best Titans QB, still top 5 franchise.

    No beef with either and it doesnt appear there is a long list of new players worthy that are waiting in the wings. Not gonna run out of numbers any time soon.

    I go beyond that and consider those 2 guys established the new Titans... in Nashville AND in the league.
