  • What NFL Teams do you have a soft spot for and why?

    I guess I can't hate the Patriots anymore. The image of Kraft and having BB be a part of the Giants for a long time kind of keeps me from hating them.

    As a Giants fan I of course hate on the Cowboys and Eagles but I do have a soft spot for the Redskins. They were a great team in the 1980s but haven't been relevant in years. I go to their stadium and their fans are kind, even in defeat.

    In the AFC I want to see the KC Chiefs do well. They gave us tremendous applause and a standing ovation the first game after 911. They have a great stadium, crowd and tradition and they've been down so long I just want to see them do well.


    How about you? What team do you sort of pull for that isn't our own team?


    Scoops


    PS. It's nice to see the Lions playing well... finally too!

    For the AFC i have always quietly rooted for the Broncos(not because of Tebow) But because The first football game I ever watched was the Broncos and they were a pretty dominant team in the late 90's.

    My dad though made me watch the Giants and my love for G-men took over and the rest was history

    as for the NFC? The lions were so bad that I just sort of defaulted to root for them cause I felt bad for them lol

    Complain?, ain't Nobody got time for dat!

    GO GIANTS!

        The Browns, their fanbase is loyal and my Dad's side of the family is from Cleveland and are Browns fans. I'd like to see the Browns represent the brown and orange in the biggest game sometime soon.

          No NFL fanbase has been kicked in the balls as much as Cleveland.

          In Philly, we have a running gag that every time the Eagles let us down, we say "Well, at least we're not Cleveland"

          Their team left and won a ring, a few years later in a different city. They let go of Belichick and obviously, there is the Lebron thing.

          Have a huge soft spot for them.

            Stillers are my #2 team.

            My uncle is from Pittsburgh and he's a HUUUUUUUGE Stillers fan, he always respected the Giants and rooted for them (as long as they werent playing his team) as well as watching all of the holiday games with me and talking Giants and Steelers football.

            In addition to my Uncle Terry being a Stillers fan, ya gotta like Pitt just for the Rooney-Mara connection alone

              I always had a soft spot for the Bears after watching Brian's Song when I was a kid . . . .

                One of the teams I like is the 49ers (I'm too young to really remember the montana days where we always seemed to meet in the playoffs).

                Recently, I started pulling for Green Bay whenever the Giants are out of it. This stems from them defeating the Eagles in philly in 2010 after the djax incident.

                I've softened up considerably to the cowboys recently as well. The church I work at has a pastor who's a big cowboys fan, although he's nowhere near rowdy about it (and you wouldn't know he was a fan unless he outright told you). Although I won't necessarily root for them in most situations, neither do I really have any more animosity towards them.

                The only team I really *hate* anymore is the eagles. If they were to fold as a franchise I would rejoice.

                I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    I have a soft spot for so many teams honestly.

                    I like the Bills in the AFC, not sure why but they are considered a NY team and I really don't have a problem with them.
                    I like their new team a lot, Steve Johnson, Fred Jackson, C.J Spiller (love the guy).

                    I also have a soft spot for the Chiefs, I want them to win a SB

                      Probably not popular choices, but the Ravens and Steelers. Both are sort of old-school -- hard-nosed defense and team play. Both teams have some of the toughest and best players of all time (Steelers: Hines Ward, Troy Polamalu, Ravens: Ray Lewis and Ed Reed.)

                      Ray Lewis (if you can get past his mis-behavior early in his career) is incredible and the closest thing to a player-coach in the NFL -- he creates a standard that everyone around aspires to. It's pretty incredible to watch....

                        I hate the Eagles! I don't hate the Cowboys or Redskins, but can't say I like them either. As for all the other teams, I like them as long as they're not playing us. Because my partner is a Jets fan, I root for them, except when they play us. So in short, I don't really care about any of them. I just love my Giants.</P>

                          I have always had a soft spot for the Patriots. Bill Parcells went there. Bill Bellichek went there. I liked Drew Bledsoe and Ben Coates. I like Tom Brady. I like Robert Kraft. Also if it bwasn’t going to be NY Giants or Washington Redskins to win the post 9/11 Super Bowl the next best thing was a team named the Patriots.

                          I have a soft spot for the Denver Broncos because a friend of mine from college that passed 2 1/2 months ago was a huge Denver Broncos fan. I remmeber when we were still in college and they played GB in the SuperBowl and we went in to the restaraunt that he was working at to get his tips from the night before and it was close to the bar we were going to watch the game at. The owner gave him some mess because he was suppossed to work that night although he had told them he couldn’t and Stafford told him “stick the job up your *** and give me my fukin money. I am going to watch the SuperBowl with my friends.” It was awesome.

                          The 5 teams I hate the most in the order I hate them-

                          1- Dallas Cowboys
                          2-NY Jets
                          3-Philadelphia Eagles
                          4- Baltimore Ravens
                          5-San Francisco 49ers

                          The 5 fan bases I hate the worst

                          1- San Franisco 49er fans are far and away the most degenerate pieces of trash I have had the displeasure to have contact with. I still have scars on my knuckles.

                          2-Dallas Cowboys fans are just rude arrogant idiots. Most of them have never even been to the state of Texas.

                          3- NY Jets fans are pure unadulterated dog feces. They should get their own stadium and close their filthy mouths.

                          4-New Orleans Saints fans are classless and obnoxious. I will never forget when Jerome Brown passed away and Philadelphia Eagles went to New Orleans Saints to play and their fans that had signs that read “Jerome was an Eagle now he is a Saint” and “it is much better being a Saint than an Eagle isn’t it Jerome.” Pure trash.

                          5- Chicago Bear have a miserable stadium and miserable crybaby fans.

                          The classiest fans at away games have to be far and away Green Bay Packers fans. For the most part they are cordial and make you feel welcome.

                          Most fun away stadium for me is FedEx Field. I love sticking around after the game and watching the band and going to the really nice bar they have there. Real fun time and real fun fans.

                            I only love NY Giants as my football team.

                            I could never understand folks that flip flop.

                              I have a soft spot for the Packers. Back when i was 8 i used to have a Favre jersey that i wore like every week to school lol.

                              But as i got older i just fell in love with the Giants.

                              Packers i respect. Classy organization with an amazing fan base, kinda like the Giants!

                              Teams that i hate?

                              Only the Philadelphia Eagles. I DETEST that franchise and their fans. Actually, i don't like anything about Philly except Rocky Balboa.
