Oilers fans: How do you feel about Titans throwbacks?

Back on March 24th, given what we knew about the Legacy Games celebrating the 50th anniversary of the AFL, we attempted to piece together when the Titans would wear the uniforms of the 1960 Houston Oilers.

Turns out we hit on one, missed another one and didn't know there would be a third during the regular season. We were working under the presumption that each team with AFL roots would have one Legacy Game at home and one on the road. We were mistaken.

So here's the Titans' schedule in these games:

Sunday, Aug. 9: Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, Canton, OH: Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans (Houston Oilers)

Sunday, Sept. 27: Tennessee Titans (Houston Oilers) at New York Jets (Titans of New York)

Sunday, Oct. 8: Tennessee Titans (Houston Oilers) at New England (Boston Patriots)

Sunday, Nov. 15: Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans (Houston Oilers)

For old fans of the Houston Oilers, whether you stuck with them as they became the Titans or became fans of the Houston Texans, here's the question:

How do you feel about the Titans wearing Oilers uniforms, complete with the beloved oil derrick on the helmets? (White derrick on light blue helmet, by the way.)
