Let's take a look at the greatest player at each position in franchise history. I'll try to list all the names who belong in the discussion, but please chime in if I forgot anyone. We can take a new position each week. If you're not familiar with some of the older players, take some time to click the link and learn a little more about our history.

We'll start with Quarterback:

George Blanda: Only played with Houston for 7 years (1960 - 1966) but they were his most productive as a QB. His per-game averages were 14-28, 195 yds, 1.7 TD's and 1.9 INT's. He never missed a game in those seven years and was named a Pro-Bowler three times. He ranks third on the all-time points scored list because he also played kicker for most of his career.

Warren Moon
: Starting QB for the Houston Oilers for ten years, from 1984-1993, making the Pro-Bowl six straight years from 1988 - 1993. His per-game averages in the pass-heavy "run 'n shoot" offense were 19-32, 239 yards, 1.4 TD's, 1.2 INT's. On Dec. 16, 1990 he threw for 527 yards against the Kansas City Chiefs, the second most all-time in one game. He ranks 4th on the all-time passing yardage list behind just Marino, Elway and Favre. A first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Steve McNair: Spent 11 years as the Oilers/Titans starting QB. His per game averages are a modest 16-27, 191 yds, 1.1 TD's, 0.7 INT's. McNair made just two Pro-Bowls, but was named co-MVP of the NFL in 2003 and led the Titans to their only Super Bowl appearance in franchise history.

It's easy to say Steve McNair because he has taken us to our only SB and he has been a part of the team for the past 11 years. But it is hard to ignore what Warren Moon had accomplished with the Oilers. Moon has every right to be mentioned with Steve McNair (actually I should say it the opposite way). But even with that said, I think Steve was a better leader because of his example he set. He rarelly came out of games, he never blamed it on the surrounding guys*, he was just an amazing player to play for. If I had to choose one guy to lead my team, it would be without a doubt...Steve McNair.

* Remember the AFC Divisional playoff game between New England and Tennessee a few years back. It was 4th and 2 (give or take a bit) with the game on the line if we didn't get that 1st down. McNair dropped back but got bullrushed by the blitzing LB's, McNair had no choice but to just throw it up in desperation. The ball came down to an awaiting Drew Bennett who somehow dropped an extremely catchable pass and the game was lost. This is the kind of leadership I'm talking about, because Steve was over on the sidelines comforting Bennett letting him know that it's not his fault they lost the game, to not let that one pass overcome what he had helped the team accomplish up to that point. That's the kind of leader that Steve McNair is.

guys come on where is the love for warren moon here??? he's in the hall of fame, that should tell you something, and he was our QB for a long time and got this franchise a reputable name (in houston true, but he's still one of the best QBs ever). give the man some props. as much as i love mcnair and think that he's one of the top 10 QBs in the past decade, he still doesnt top moon.

I gotta go Moon too. As much respect as I have for Air as a leader, I think Moon's numbers and first-ballot HOF status give him the edge.

its hard to choose.....the only Titans ive ever known have been McNair's Titans.....but Moon was something special.....in the end, i gotta say McNair because of his leadership abilities, taking us to our only franchise superbowl, playing through all those injuries.....he was a warrior and he will be missed.....

do you think there is any possibility that McNair will make the HOF.....i doubt it

That's funny. Because he was with us for so long in the 70's, I started writing up a paragraph for him. Then I stopped and said "Ah, who am I kiddin?"

I doubt it too. Unless he can fire off about three more above average years... which is possible.

I loved Dan and that whole "Luv Ya Blue" era! Dan was the man along with Earl, Renfro, Mauck, Brazile and the rest. My dad took me to the Monday night game against the Dolphins that was made famous by Campbell running roughshod over that defense. It was my 1st ever pro game and the start of my love afair with the Oilers. Thats why I pick Dan Wink
