Who is the Greatest Tennessee Titan of all-time (1999–current)?
Titan Sized contributor Carlos Beard riled some emotions when he suggested that Chris Johnson was the greatest player to wear the two-tone blue—period. According to Beard (full article here):
Chris Johnson is the greatest player to ever have the word Titans across his chest. This isn’t a debate. Some fans will say it’s Steve McNair, Eddie George, or even Keith Bulluck (I think we can all agree Randy Moss shouldn’t be included), but none of them ever achieved the greatness that the player known as “CJ2K” already has.
This didn’t go over well with some of the readers. For the sake of our younger audience, Titan Sized will avoid the “ emotional” responses:

Everyone on Twitter appeared to disagree with Mr. Beard. That wasn’t the case on the comments section of the article. Here was part of what user Tommy Taylor had to say:
…But face facts Chris Johnson #Greatest Titan No Question! Kearse still the most talented titan.
Below is a poll “Who Is the Greatest Tennessee Titan?” Please note that all “99s” that are listed on poll options DO NOT indicate their service as a Houston Oiler (Pre-1997) or Tennessee Oiler (1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons). The franchise wasn’t recognized as the Tennessee Titans until the 1999-00 NFL season.
Included are 16 choices. If you select one of the two “others,” explain in the comments (Disqus, Facebook or Twitter).
With 16 options, Titan Sized may do a tournament-style polling when the dead period arrives in June. This would assist with the seeding.
