Ever since the Oilers/Titans arrived in 1997, I don't believe we've had to endure the kind of team that is currently playing now. The Titans are likely to go 5-11 this year, which would be the first real bad record after winning/playoff seasons, 8-8's and 7-9's. It was no surpise today that they lost, and I have nothing to add to what has been said. Let's go for some draft picks!

I'll be interested to see if the Titans fans all disappear as the team starts to be bad. If they ever start playing hockey again, maybe the Predators (if they aren't bad also) might pick up some of those fans. Who knows? Or is Tennessee so rabid for football that the Titans will still sell out for a medocre team? I don't know.

Yeah, that's the big question. How will Nashville react to a loser? I think that there will still be a core fan group, and that the team is so ingrained now that a losing streak will be tolerated... to some extent. I don't think we'll end up like Arizona or anything. But a few years of losing would hurt attendence. Maybe I could afford to go to a game then!

My thoughts exactly Mike....maybe I'll finally have a chance to get a ticket to go to my first professional football team (if the Titans keep doing poorly and attendance drops off). But then, I'd be going to see a bad team. But maybe next year, or the one after, if attendance is down, I can procure a ticket to a Titans/Colts game and get to see my favorite team play! That would rule.

I think Nashville fans are fickle a bit, and we'll see a drop in attendance and fan support, but nothing so bad as half the stadium being empty or anything like that. But there's no way we're Green Bay or Dallas, selling out regardless of the record. Our team hasn't been around long enough. Eventually we will likely have those kinds of fans...but not this soon.
