Welcome to week 3 of "The Franchise's Greatest." Here's what the team looks like so far:

QB: Steve McNair
RB: Earl Campbell

This week we move outside to the wide receiver position. Should be a tight race. Again - if you're not familiar with the older guys, please click the links and check them out. We'll induct the top two WR's into our all-time team.

Wide Receiver:

Charley Hennigan: Played for the AFL's Houston Oilers for 7 seasons (1960 - 1966). His per-game averages were 4.3 catches for 72 yards and a TD in 54% of the games he played. Back when passing was much less popular than it is today, he recorded seasons of 1746 yards ('61) and 101 catches ('64). The 101 catches set a record at the time. He was named to five consecutive Pro-Bowls.

Ken Burrough: Played with the Houston Oilers for 11 years from 1971 - 1981. A two-time Pro-Bowler, number 00's per game averages were 2.8 catches for 48 yards, scoring a TD in 33% of the games.

Drew Hill: Played with the Houston Oilers during the run 'n shoot days of Jerry Glanville and Jack Pardee. His per game averages were 4.5 catches for 71 yards, scoring a TD in 44% of the games. Drew made two Pro-Bowls.

Ernest Givins: Played alongside Hill in the run 'n shoot. His per game averages were 3.9 catches for 58 yards, scoring a TD in 33% of the games. Ernest made two Pro-Bowls and is perhaps best known for inventing the electric slide touchdown celebration.

Derrick Mason: Mason has been the main WR threat for the Titans this decade. Per game averages are a bit low since he was drafted to be a return specialist. But in eight seasons he averaged 3.7 catches for 50 yards and a TD in 30% of his games. He was a two time Pro-Bowler.

yo guys this is still a travesty to see that mcnair is voted as the number one QB of all time over warren moon, a hall of famer for crying out loud! mcnair is awesome and i have nothing but respect for him, but warren moon was an INCREDIBLE quarterback, and without a doubt moon was better than mcnair was or is. its just not right. and campbell certainly deserved it. i think that people just don't remember moon as much, and mcnair is the QB that we all remember, when he led us to the super bowl and all. but its just a travesty to the legend of warren moon.

Agreed. ^

Moon is a HoF QB, while McNair will receive marginal consideration at best. I wasn't a member when that poll was taken but suspect the young 'uns votes won for Mac. Those of us old enough to have seen both of them play would probably vote heavily in favor of Moon.

I assume it's a generational thing. Just my opinion, though.

Hey, Rick, since two receivers will be selected in this poll, how come we get to vote for only one? I'd like to vote for two but am withholding my vote for now, hoping to wait until we're allowed two votes each.

I'm going to go with Derrick Mason, because he was one of my favorite players when he was here. He was an excellent receiver for his size and really overachieved as a 4th-round pick. Of course, I don't need to tell you all that. I met they guy on the job, and he was really cool. Also, where is Tyrone Calico on this list?

I'm pretty sure the software doesn't support voting for more than one. If someone knows how to do that, let me know. I looked and couldn't find any option to allow more than one vote. Confused We'll just go with the two highest vote totals.

And since we're revisiting the QB's a little in this thread, I remember Moon well. He was the biggest reason I became an Oiler fan. I voted for him and statistically - it isn't even close between he and Mac. But for the leadership qualities, I think Mac gets a strong edge on Moon. I don't remember Moon leading us down the field on one leg against a clearly superior team. In fact, as much as I'm trying to forget, I remember being beaten by worse teams in a lot of those playoff runs. Sure you can't pin those all on Moon, but I think he lacked a little something that should have taken a good team and made them great.

Overall? I still say Moon. But in my book it's a lot closer than you would think.

I'd go Mason since he was the first Titan/Oiler to have 4 consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons.

we havent had a ton of great WR but i saw Derrick Mason the most and a couple of years ago, he was a top 6th-7th reciever in the NFL and led our team every year in WR stats......so i have to go with him

i went with mason as well, he has been a great wide reciever in the past when he was here with us, a 4th round pick who played like a top 10 pick. he was very consistent, i just hate it that he had to be let go.

yeah i know mason was and is still good, but he is still not the best WR is franchise history. RECENT history yeah but you gotta remember the oldies, like people were saying, when they threw way less and Hennigan STILL had nearly a HOF career. give the man his props guys.
