    Argh... tough to pick just four. Campbell is a lock, and Matthews seems like he should be... beyond that it gets all kinds of tough (assuming you can pick just four)

    Moon for sure. I don't think Steve would be on it sadly.

    Campbell/Moon/McNair/Adams

    No coaches/GM since we've never won a SB

    I included Adams since he was instrumental in starting the AFL
    Campbell speaks for himself
    McNair won an MVP and I think defines our organization
    Moon same as McNair just from a different time period
    Titans Eternal and Ensconatus high five this.

    Agree with all of this and like the look of that monument.

    But... Bruce Matthews is perhaps the greatest o-lineman in the history of the game. Elvin Bethea was really, really scary good, Munchak, HOF player and hopefully Super Bowl winning head coach... and has spent every moment of his career with the Oilers/Titans.

    Too tough.

    edit: random unrelated... just found this pic at SI.com. I figured posting here was as good a place as any. Sweet chrome lids! You really don't see a lot of pics of these uniforms as the Oilers were awful during the early 70's. The QB is Jerry Rhome who later became a pretty successful OC including seasons coaching with the Oilers.

    I discount Matthews a bit because he was an interior lineman (which is weird cause i've been on the Warmack train since way back)

    Anyway if he was a LT Like Munoz from Cinci then I would put him on there over Moon.

    McNair is a must IMO SBtrip and MVP
  4. Fry Hatin' is what I do.

    Can we omit Oilers' history? I know it's technically still a part of this franchise, but when a guy like Earl Campbell comes out and says he doesn't care about the Titans and doesn't consider himself a part of the franchise's history, why should we?
