    Tom Brady made the superbowl last year at just under 35.

    Warner made it to one at 37

    Brad Johnson won on at 34

    John Elway won at 37

    Joe Theisman made one at 34

    Craig Morton made one at 34

    Earl Morall made one at 34

    Bart Star won at 33 and 34

    There are some facts for ya. Enjoy your self imposed exile. Just don't come back when we are winning with Manning. Nobody likes a bandwagoner.

    It's just weird how when I bring facts to the table, everyone counters with opinions and fallacy. You're right, I shouldn't entertain racebaiting posts from trolls. I just posted that article because I thought it was a good read for someone who doesn't know anything about math, statistics and probability. I didn't write the article I posted, I just thought he brought up good points.

    Needless to say, this team is going in the wrong direction and the best thing we can hope for is Peyton Manning to sign with the Cardinals.

    Another question no one wants to answer is... Who are you guys going to ask to get fired if manning is the QB and we suck?

    Everyone seems to think that Manning is the magic elixir but all I seem to remember is the Chargers and Jets game planning for him and beating him in the playoffs each year and him having an awful post season during 2006 when the defense in Indy suddenly became good during the playoffs

    A common theme I've noticed with Manning is when teams have time to prepare for him... I.E. the playoffs, he's quite ordinary.

    Yeah, he'll get you there... and it's not hard to get there when your competition is Jack Del Taco, the Houston Cows (before they were decent) and Jeff Fisher's 5 year long quarterback controversy.

    Hell, even the Buffalo Bills would have had a shot at conference dominance during those years.

    I think the criteria was "Winning a superbowl" not getting there because Bud wants to "Win" one before he dies.

    I remember Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson winning a superbowl, you ready to put them in the hall of fame?

    Lets hope the Titans w/Manning don't meet the Chargers in the playoffs

    the Chargers are 5-1 in their last six games against Peyton, generating 15 interceptions and allowing only 11 touchdowns.

    When's the last time Tennessee beat San Diego... Has Tennessee ever beaten San Diego since we became the Titans?

    The Colts arent likely to win a SB with Luck either.... So what?

    Super Bowls are wont by T E A M S not just QBs.

    Elway didnt win the SB. Why werent the Broncos in the SB every year? Its the team.

    Elway had a career QB passer rating of 79.9
    Manning ............................. 94.9


    Manning is the much better QB and it really isnt close.

    Really? You are just searching and searching... Why would you care so much? Its obvious you arent a fan of the team. Just go away of it bothers you so much. It isnt your team. Its a business. The Titans are making a business decision. I know most you of emotionally stupid fans dont understand that Super Bowl talk and all that is for the fans. Not the players or the Owners give a crap about anything but playing the game and making money. If they happen to win along the way NICE, but they make decisions to make money. Its a business and its entertainment. All the other crap is just show.

    You think Mario Williams went to Buffalo because he thinks the Bill have the best chance to win a SB? NOPE he went because they gave him $50 million.

    Peyton comes to the Titans the Stadium is full. The team gets a TON of attention. The Jerseys fly off the rack.

    If he is close to healthy Peyton. Maybe the Titans win. But the $$$$$ still comes in.


    Its just entertainment. When you finally get that you will enjoy it more.
