REMEMBERING THE TITANS
This is the Tennessee Titans 49th season in the National Football League.
Beginning as the Houston Oilers in 1960 in the old AFL. The Oilers won 2 AFL championships before the NFL-AFL merger.
The Oilers relocated to Tennessee in 1997, first playing in Memphis for one season before moving to Nashville.
For two seasons the team was known as the Tennessee Oilers before changing its name to Titans in 1999.
The 1999 season would see the Tennessee Titans and the Saint Louis Rams matchup in Superbowl XXXIV (Rams 23 - Titans 16).
Jeff Fisher is still the Titans Head coach. Jeff started as HC for the Houston Oilers in 1994. The Rams were still in Los Angeles, moving to Saint Louis in 1995.
The Tennessee Titans play their home games at LP Field, formerly known as 'The Coliseum' (2002-06), also formerly known as Adelphia Coliseum (1999-2002).
Adelphia went bankrupt in 2002 and lost the naming rights.
The current naming rights deal with Nashville-based Louisiana-Pacific was inked June 6, 2006.
Louisiana-Pacific, which markets itself as "LP Building Products" is paying $30 million over ten years for naming rights.
Nashville's nickname "Music City" and Louisiana-Pacific's acronyn "LP" led to the stadium's nickname of "The Album", capacity is slightly under 69,000.
Tennessee finished the season 10-6, winning their final three games.
The Titans lost the AFC Wildcard game 17-6, against the San Diego Chargers.l

Are you sure Mcareins is their number one WR? I thought he was like #5, especially considering he didn't play more then 10 snaps all last year with the JETS
