Assuming he was in any condition to watch the game yesterday, I'm sorry that was the last he saw of his franchise.

You shouldn't... Nashville has given the Titans everything they've asked for. Plus, no State Tax.. it has it's perks.


Plus they're tied here til 2028 with their lease. Too bad a Super Bowl win never happened in his lifetime, but he certainly changed the landscape of both Houston and Nashville for the better, regardless of how things transpired to get there. Good read from Climer: http://www.tennessean.com/article/20131021/NEWS/310210069/David-Climer-Will-reigns-pass-grandson-

What kind of guy is he? Anyone know? I hope he is not another Jim Irsay or Al Davis son.

Very curious to see what his grandson does differently or the same while steering the ship. I liked the moves last offseason so I'm hoping that was a sign that the grandson (suppose I should google his name, eh?) was assuming more control.

I was never a fan of his, but now is not the time for all that. RIP, Bud and prayers go out for his family.

Dang, well day was coming.

Hate that he didn't at least get back to the Super Bowl. He went all in with Manning, that was his last push. Understandably so, Manning would have made the last two years something to watch...

I also hate the HOF chumped him out of being able to go in, while alive. He was just as important as Lamar Hunt was...they started the AFL together for goodness sake.

His love of the Longhorn hurt the franchise.

I'm sooo thankful however, that he brought the NFL to Nashville. It is something I love and have a passion for....something that now my son and I share and have endless memories with.....

Overall thanks to him for giving Nashville the NFL.

Wow this is crazy it is sad for sure. Regardless of what people think of him he did usher in a lot to the NFL as a whole and obviously to the city of Nashville. It is a big loss for the Titans.

I can't help but think about the irony and how there could not be a better match up coming up though for the Titans next then against the St Louis Rams in two weeks. The Rams the team the Titans played against at arguably their pinnacle and fell just one yard short unfortunately. However those were the great years for the Titans.

Also the fact that Jeff Fisher is now their coach, a man who knows Bud I am sure as well as anyone currently in the Titans organization who worked with him. Not to mention so many players for both teams who were part of the drafts Bud was a part of.

I know obviously it is all coincidental he would pass before the game against the Rams but it is cool to think about. Almost poetic in a way I guess anyways RIP bud and God be with his family.

Also best of luck to whoever takes over for Bud. I just hope this lights a fire and the Titans come out guns blazing as if nothing else this should be good motivation for the team.

Sad if true. We rag on Bud alot but he has done so much for the city of Nashville and the NFL itself. RIP Bud, sad the team couldn't win you one while you were here but don't worry, you and McNair will be looking down one day while this team hoists that Lombardi.


Well said...

Thought for sure he was going to live forever. Sad
Yeah, thought he was going to outlive us all.

Goodell's statement on Bud:

Quote:
"Bud Adams played a pivotal role in the growth of pro football as a pioneer and innovator. As a founding owner of the American Football League that began play in 1960, Bud saw the potential of pro football and brought the game to new cities and new heights of popularity, first in Houston and then in Nashville. He was a brilliant entrepreneur with a terrific sense of humor that helped lighten many a tense meeting. His commitment to the best interests of the game and league was unwavering, and his personal along with the team's impact in community relations and philanthropy set a standard for the NFL. Bud was truly a gift to the NFL. We extend our deepest sympathy to his daughters Susan and Amy, and the entire family."


Hate the fact that he never got to see a Super Bowl win. Regardless of the many criticisms he has faced over the last few decades, the man played a huge role in getting the game of football to where it is today.

Sounds like his grandson, Kenneth S. Adams IV, will likely take over.

RIP.

Will be interesting to see how this influences the offseason and future seasons. Will we continue to open up the checkbook a bit to land players we like? Or will we revert back to conservative, small-market spending?

I dont really know.. the only thing you really hear about him is kind of having sort of a bad attitude but truly loves the game.

He has a bad attitude like throwing the double barrel salute to fivehead in a few weeks from the owner's box?

According to Wyatt and McClain on Twitter, they think his son-in-law Tommy Smith, will take over.

He apparently had been involved over the off-season, as Bud's condition diminished.

RIP

Man. I didn't even know he was that close. Really would have been a dream if we could've somehow gotten a SB this year for him. He'll keep watching the titans from the other side. RIP Bud
