    I get supporting the current team. And that might be what is necessary to get the current players motivated to give the extra bit of play necessary to get us back to post season winning.

    And the "ring of honor" is for legends not for current good players. I could go with that as long as every understands that Wright, Casey, Pollard, Walker have NOT made contributions to the success of the franchise on the same level as Eddie, Steve, Frank etc.

    If smith is basing his decisions on public opinion the franchise is doomed.

    Certainly that isn't the story that's presented as he was willing to keep munch if munch would again make coordinator changes to which munch said no.

    Truthfully that makes me nervous too. But it all worked out

    I kinda of see the point PK is making, as much as I have been a pretty big critic of his. The organization desperately needs to generate some excitement about the current team, the new staff and the direction we hope they take this team given there is more and more new blood coming in.

    I don't know how many times, probably EVERY game I walk into that stadium, where I don't look at those banners and think (and often say) "Man that was fun when they were playing...miss those days". That is not what the organization should be wanting fans to say or think on gamedays. I think there is room in the stadium for them to honor these guys with banners if they want. They WERE the stalwarts of the team. But I think its time to start getting the stadium redone outside and inside. The stadium still feels stuck in 99 despite the fabulous new vid screen setup and vid ribbon.

    I disagree with PK's dismissal of these players though, but that is the cynical, negative part of his reporting that makes him one of my least favorite Titan's reporters of all time.

    Out with the old, In with the new. Never been to LP field, hope to change that this season.

    But seriously I don't want to see what we once had, we need to promote our current players. How the hell is the team ever suppose to have that superstar player when we don't even promote our own current players.

    why can't we have both up...eventually? the only thing is no one on the team deserves the same attention right now as Eddie or Steve. Wright? CJ? Locker? I don't think so not yet anyway.

    I have been to a few stadiums and every stadium I have been to has legends on posters up. The Bucs have Warren Sapp on a poster. There is no one on this team worth of getting their own poster. We only had 1 pro bowler and he will likely be gone in less than a week which is dam depressing honestly. We didn't use the franchise tag on any player and PK is talking about POSTERS??? lol gtfo PK! This has nothing to do with making the team better and all people really care about are wins!

    Great point. Why not link our past success with our current day players? No reason we can't have both. It must be a conscious decision to focus on the good 'ole days because there was a time where CJ definitely should have had a banner up there. That time is gone now but it is time to put up a Wright or Casey banner.

    I have zero issues with putting our legends up on banners - where's the harm in that? Almost every team honors their legends somehow... and besides who else are we going to put up?

    I could make a case for Casey, but other than that - nobody is deserving of a banner.

    I never said put current players in the ring of honor.

    And I am pretty sure that Eddie, Steve, and Frank count as legends in Titans history.

    You could put a Locker poster up, but I'm pretty sure it would just crumble and fall apart by week 3.
