    And no championship. No way in hell another coach pulls that off for 20 years on the same bench.

    Unless Dan Rooney is the owner.

    Jeff Fisher is at 15 and counting -- I'd lay even money he's still with the Titans in 5 years.

    I was watching a game the other night, Ravens-Skins I think, and there was a guy playing who was one of two Houston Oilers still in the NFL. I think it was one of Baltimore's receivers.

    Anybody know who the two ex-Oilers are?

    Steve McNair's one of them.

    There's only one: Philly's Jon Runyan.

    Was Derrick Mason a rookie on the last Oilers team? Only guy it could be.

    I looked it up. I must have misheard what they said on the air. He played for the Tennessee, not Houston, Oilers according to his career stats.

    Fun stat from AP in its story about Sloan's 20 years:

    Randy Wittman was the 223rd coaching change in the NBA since Sloan took over.

    And by "only," you possess an NHL POV.
