Something makes me think that was probably used at the collegiate level previously too...

EDIT: Quick google news search reveals plenty of teams pre-2003 referred to as the cardiac cats. :(

Copping the nicknames is amateur....cringed when Smitty (I think it was) said it last night. Completely weak sauce.

It is arguable who came up w/ it first. It has just been that the Titans have been on the National spotlight this year because of the 10-0 start. So people naturally heard it about it more.

So we definitely didn't copy them. And it's a much better nickname than "The Hardy Boys" which I heard them first call themselves. Or even "Earth, Wind, and Fire", kind of lame.

As for the, the "Cardiac Cats", I know the old St Louis Cardinals were known at one point as the "Cardiac Cards". And even they could of easily not "came up with it"

It's all debatable.

But you know what is weak sauce? Using the term "weak sauce"

Didn't matter though - the fact that it got used for us that year and then the jags the next year was enough to get people terribly riled up.

Same with Smash and Dash - someone else is going to use it in a few years and we're going to have people all upset that it got stolen from us.

It's like that for every team - Seahawks and the 12th man come to mind.

No it's not....it's not arguable in the least. FACT is, the Titans RBs used it previously. How the hell is that arguable?

Which is kind of dopey...getting riled up about a nickname you didn't come up with in the first place is just...well...weird.

Come up with something original and then complain when someone cops it...then it'll be valid and you can get a twisted ass over it.
