I need an NFL team root for...help

Growing up near Buffalo I have been a Bills fan for 30+ years. Well, they suck. And still have no coach and still have Trent Edwards. I don't see how this year will be any better for Bills fans.

SO-here's how you can help. Tell me which team is your favorite and why I should root for them. Help make this year's NFL season fun for me!

(oh yeah I'm open to bribes.)

any team but the Patriot frauds, but I don't think you should give up on your Bills, stick with your team through the good and bad, don't be a bandwagon fan like the Patriots fans here where I live.

Root for the Bills. You can keep PQ company. If you're really a fan, you root for your team good and bad.

If you're looking for an explosive team to root for, go through highlight reels from last year and pick your favorite player. Then root for whatever team they play for. =)

The player idea is good. I followed Kurt Warner til this year. The problem with loyalty towards the Bills is that they are moving to Canada in a few years anyway. Buffalo's gonna get screwed.

Always root for the Bills.. it will just be that much sweeter when you finally get there.

Same thing I've done with the Chargers since we had bags on our heads... once we get there this year it will be all worth while...

or you could root for the Bills and one other team who has never won the Super Bowl like the Chargers...

That's a good point. Chargers could be an option. I live closer to San Diego than Buffalo now. (more of a regional team)

Hey, I feel your pain brother. I live in the Detroit area and the Lions have been worse than pathetic. I adopted the Indianapolis Colts almost 16 years ago. Went through some rough years, but they have been dominant for a few years now. The reason I picked the Colts was because Jim Harbaugh was the QB and he played for the Michigan Wolverines which is my favorite college team. Good luck in choosing!! GO COLTS!!!!!

I'd like to root for the Miami Dolphins, as I have since I was a kid growing up in South Florida... But if Jason Taylor can move on... I guess it's time for me to too.

I'm now rootin for the Colts because I played with their star player - Pierre Garcon - back in High School. He was fast then, insane now. Since HS, I took the lazy route and predicted i would be murdered in college ball, so didn't even think about pursuin it, but he kept runnin the routes and look at him today

You've got to stick with your team through thick and thin. Only a chick would think about changing teams because they're sucking.

It's never been easy to be a Charger fan, but you won't EVER see me (or mlee) giving up on them.

GO BOLTS!

Jason Taylor tried to move on two years ago, when the fins won the afc east division.

I may have a worse favorite team than you, my friend. I have been a lifelong Cleveland Browns fan. I don't know if that is one up from Buffalo, or one down, but we are both in the same boat.

I stick with my Brownies through thick and thin (and trust me, there hasn't been much to get excited about - cept last year's "schooling" of the Pittsburgh Steelers)..

Go Browns Go....

Charger's of course, they have been to the play-off four year's in a row, just can't get over that hump. Ryan Mathews looked good last night, but yes it's only pre-season. You got to believe no matter who you root for. Go Charger's.

Um The Steelers

If 6 rings isn't enough

The Steelers have played in seven Super Bowls, winning six of them, including four in six years.

no one will ever do what they did.

Wining 4 super bowls, 2 years in a row, 2 years apart, for 4 total.

75-76 79-80

no one ever will or will have a winning streak like that ever again.

1 of a kind with 6 rings.

Intelligence isn't really your strong suit is it? The whole point of this thread was to give people a chance to brag on their team a little bit. But, I guess you didn't understand that.

So that's 6 reasons not to root for the Steelers... and throw the Cowboys in that ring too...

...and the rules have changed with salary caps and all so it will be much harder to do these days...but it will be done someday...
