I am new to this forum but I have been a Titans fan for years. I have lived in Nashville my whole life and was one of those people who were thrilled when the Oilers moved here- it was as if we finally had arrived. I was very proud that our new NFL team was able to go to a Super Bowl- and I was just as proud after that game to call myself a Titans fan. For years we were blessed with a very good team- in truth we were spoiled. But regardless I was always proud to be a Titans fan. I don't know if I can say that anymore. Not because we've had bad seasons, but because of the way the front office has handled our veteran players. I know, I know...it's time for me to take off my blinders and look at the facts- but what are the facts? What is real here verses what the team would want us to see? Fact#1- Steve McNair hasn't played like an MVP for a long time and doesn't rate the fat contract money negotiated earlier in his career. FACT: The Titans have dealt away 2 of the 4 best targets (Mason & McCareins) Steve had as a MVP and another retired after Steve's MVP season (Wychek). Add to this changing offensive coordinators, numerous first and second year players on offense and defense as well as seasoned linemen making rookie mistakes and you get a mess that many in this organization can share responsibility in creating. Fact#2- Asking Steve not to work out at the Titans training facilty is a smart move due to the cap hit we will take if he is injured there. FACT: You don't treat the guy who has a forty foot billboard on your colliseum like a chump...period.(oops, that happened before didn't it?) ..like say call him to let him know your concerns instead of letting him show up at the facility and hear it from a trainer- while Floyd, Jeff and Norm are all in California looking at another quarterback. That's REAL classy guys. Fact#3- Even if they wanted to keep Steve, his opinion of his skills are unrealistic. FACT: This may be true, but then again it may not. As a fan I sure don't want to find out that Steve had five great years left while watching him in a Ravens uniform. That disgusts me. But, like my good friend said earlier tonight, though he has ragged on Steve's performance Steve doesn't deserve the "Titans" treatment he's getting. It boggles my mind that Adam Jones can get away with the crap he has and our league MVP gets treated like an old pair of sneakers. Maybe Floyd and Jeff should consider what our draftees are learning about how they are likely to be treated in the future as a Tennessee Titan. I will continue to support the team, but it won't be the same. Then again after Steve is gone it won't be the same team.
