    Before the Titans I was an Oilers fan. Just continued cheering for them after they moved. But I know most did not. So who did you cheer for before the Titans?

    Too young for me. We moved to TN in '97, so I was 6...

    Ouch, so you remember at least two of the three horrible playoff collapses we had back in the day.

    Im like xpmar9x, I was really too young to care about the NFL very much pre-Titans, but I did like football in the 90's growing up, usually cheered on the Broncos, mostly cause my mom bought me John Elway everything for birthdays and Christmas' and every time I'd open a pack of cards it was a Broncos player. But as soon as a team moved to TN, I had to become a huge fan. That was actually a dream of mine, to one day have a NFL team in TN to root for.

    Oddly enough I moved to Connecticut the next year (which totally sucked).
    Team I'd always wanted comes to TN, I move from TN. Oh well.

    Yeah, I remember when Joe Montana and the Chiefs came to the Astrodome and beat us 28-20.. That game hurt right there.

    The last great team for the old Oilers. Man they were good that year. So frustrating to watch that game.

    Too young but do remember liking the Falcons when my dad first moved to Atlanta. Then became a Titans fan in 99.

    I've been an Oilers fan since the beginning of time (1984, the year I was born). Much like the Titans of the past 10 or so years we had some horrible teams and some great ones. We'd get close and choke horribly. Heartbreaking stuff. The year Bud moved out of Houston was a tough time. Those first couple years in TN were rough but ended up being the right move.

    Living and growing up here in Texas people always have asked me "if you were an Oilers fan why aren't you a texans fan"? Because f**k them, that's why. When the team moved to Tennessee my loyalty as a fan went with them.
