of the 31 teams finished 8 8 this season Reeves Falcons went from 79 to the Super Bowl and back to 511 this season fin ishing there because of injuries and free agent defections But the Titans and the Rams arent the flukes some people think they are Tennessee has had talent since Jeff Fisher took over as coach in November of 1994 when the team was still hi Houston and known as the Oilers By 1996 they had announced their intention to move and were drawing less than to the Astrodome They finished 26 at home and 62 on the road the first of three straight 500 seasons The next year as the Tennessee Oilers they played in Memphis before less than fans many of them rooting for the position Again they as they last season when they played in Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville But when they opened Adelphia Coliseum this year and were re christened the Titans the fans started showing up and rooting fervently That energized every mm veterans like offensive lineman Bruce Matthews a 12 tinw Pro Bowler at age 38 to rook ie Jevon Kearse who had sacks an NFL rookie record The rest of the team jelled around them from quarterback Steve McNair and running back Eddie George two renowned col

did Warner get a shot and even then the Rams went looking for a veteran They never needed one Warner threw 4 touchdown passes the only quarterback other than Dan Marino ever to surpass 40 and was voted the leagues most valu able player Running back Marshall Faulk obtained for just secondand fifthround draft picks from Indianapolis was offensive player of the year becoming just the second player ever to run for more than yards and catch more than yards in passes They were the difference But the foundation was there Isaac Bruce who missed most of 1997 and 1998 with nagging injuries returned to his earlier form and was one of the NFLs best receivers and freeagent Adam Timmerman who played on two Super Bowl teams with Green Bay was added as a free agent Then there were all the high firstround picks the Rams made when they were bad defensive ends Kevin Carter and Grant Wistrom and offensive tackle Orlando Pace All demonstrated this year why they were prized The result A Super Bowl berth Its no Reeves said These teams are good and they deserve to be here Maybe next year there will be someone else Tbftft probably better than the same teams all the
