It's almost NFL Season, and since the Eagles still employ Michael " Doggie Killer" Vick, I refuse to cheer for the Birds with Him still on the team. Last year I just watched the games with no rooting interest, and this year I want it to be different. Give Me a reason or reason's on why Your Team is the one that I should root for. The only caveat is when the Eagles finally get rid of Vick, I go back to be an Eagles Fan.

I really cannot give you one other than Michael Vick doesn't play for the Bills. I don't even know how many games I'll watch this season. I gave a big "same old Bills" to Chan Gailey being hired, and although I don't think he's anything as a coach, it's obvious they are better coached than they were under Jauron. They probably could have hired a homeless drunk and gotten that. The next step is perhaps getting the #1 pick and getting a real QB in.

The Giants play the Iggles twice and you have the opportunity to be yelled at by the Philly faithful. What else could you ask for?

The G-Men are in the lead. The only thing is that KK18 blows Eli WAY too much.

You could root for the Cowboys. Or maybe just Tony Romo.

The Colts are pretty boring IMO, but I do watch them on occasion so that one day I can say I saw the greatest QB of all time play in his prime.

I've heard of people who write to all teams saying they are looking for a team to root for, in hopes of getting free merchandise.  Sometimes a team will send free stuff to the fan.

Root for the Niners. You can watch Mike Singletary blow up and with his eyes pop out of his head when Alex Smith throws his 3rd INT

The Packers are the ones that sent old man Favre packing. Cheer them on as they do what they failed to do last year and beat the Vikings.

If you refuse to cheer for the Eagles but can't still get enough of the searing and repetitive pain of seeing your team fall apart on the increasingly rare occasions that they get close to a championship...the Browns are for you.

How about dem Bengals?  We have Ochocinco, TO, Pacman Jones, Tank Johnson, and had (RIP) Chris Henry.  Guaranteed there will always be something interesting happening on and off the field this year.

Plus I just gave you some mana!

I'm not gonna tell you to root for Da Bears. They suck. Root for a team that has a legitimate chance to win the Super Bowl. The word New seems to work pretty well. See The Saints, Giants and Patriots. Pick one of those three teams. I can't see the Jets doing it this year. I have no faith in their QB Sanchez.

I can't stand Pacman Jones as much as Vick. I have to pass on Cincy.

This is different, it's about right and wrong. Vick is a Murder who should still be in Prison, let alone, play in the NFL.

Well, Rex is the son of the great Buddy Ryan. You have a good point, Claw. The Jets are up there.

As a Buccaneer fan who also roots for the Lions all I can say is root for them out of sheer pity.

Plus both teams are undefeated in the Super Bowl.  The Bucs did it with a dominating win over the Raiders.  The Lions are undefeated for a completely different reason and probably always will be.

Enjoy some mana.

This probably isn't a bad approach, Ted. You could write a couple of letters to the teams you're considering and see which one of them bribe you the most.

Because after years and years of being an underdog, often a TERRIBLE team, and (in the past couple decades or so) occasionally been competitive enough to disappoint fans when they blow big games or seasons, they are now THE HUNTED.  From America's feel good story last year to the team everyone is gunning for and more people will be against because of the band-wagoners. They are one of, if not THE, most exciting team to watch because of a high octane offense and an aggressive, risk-taking (though far from sturdy) defense, top notch special teams and a coach with nuts like King Kong. They have one of the true super QB's of the league, a top notch O-Line, and big time playmakers at various skill positions.  And they have a chance to join the very rare club that repeats as champs after their 1st championship win.  For interest level, I think THE SAINTS are hard to beat if looking for a team to follow closely week after week.


Plus, New Orleans is one of the most unique and interesting places in the country & the Gulf South has been a hot topic these past few years.  Get in now with the league's next dynasty!  Watch 'em do what everyone says can't be done (again)!

He'd be a bandwagon fan then.  He can't start cheering for a front runner.  Pick the Bucs or Lions.

I have been a Vikings fan most of my life.  I don't think I have anything to offer to make you like them.  Everyone hates Brett Favre, they never won a Super Bowl but have choked many time sin big Playoff games, their coach is a pussy and its cold as a witches tit there.  Ummm Viking women have blonde hair and big ankles?  We don't suck as bad as Detroit?  Its better than being a Cowboys fan?

Yeah, but you get to take bets on whether your highly talented team's season will end on a Favre INT (always a safe bet - I'm still bragging about my call on that last year), a Peterson fumble, gross mismanagement by the coach, or a combination of the above.

So far the standings are: ( subject to change, of course)

1. Jets
2. Lions
3. Bears
4. Niners
5. G-Men

Eff the Jets. Don't get caught in the hype. Their bandwagon is filling up and they have some punks on the team too.

Lions should be fun to watch and I think they are on the rise, but they won't be a true contender yet. If you want to win it all now, no, but if you might stick with them it might be good to get in now before they blow up and the bandwagon fills up.

Eff the Bears

49ers are in a similar boat to the Lions, IMO. I could see rooting for them.  I expect them to be better than the Lions right now too. I'm picking them to win their division.

I like the G-Men and am a big Eli fan, but if you are boycotting the Eagles just because of the Vick situation, do you really want to switch over to an in-division rival?

But I still say the Saints. Yes, they are the champs and had an overflowing bandwagon last year, but so many are already jumping off and hardly anyone outside of their serious fan base thinks they have a prayer to repeat. I think rooting for them to repeat after 45 years of futility will be more fun than last year, and that's saying a LOT because last year was straight magic.  And like I said, no one is more fun to watch.

I like them a lot too. The Saints are blatantly trying to emulate them, right down to the arrogant coaching staff, ballsy playcalling and hard working scouting department and I love it.

Hey Beej, what is Your opinion on the Eagles employing Vick?

They are keeping him and putting in spot plays for him to "justify" their signing of him. I don't think he can play anymore and he won't be on the team next year.

They ought to make him return kicks or just be a running back.

I would say root for the Bears. The only thing going for them is that they play outside compared to the Colts and Vikings (pussies). At the very least they should be hilarious (again)  just to see how many picks Cutler throws this year.

And I agree, I like Bret Favre too.  I could give two shits what he does in the offseason and I would do the same damn thing as him if I were in his shoes.

I like Bret Favre.

And I agree, I like Bret Favre too.  I could give two shits what he does in the offseason and I would do the same damn thing as him if I were in his shoes.


You'd purposely screw over your employer who pays you millions and kisses your ass just so you can get increased media attention each year (screw the skipping offseason workout crap, he could still do that and tell the team if he's coming back or not)? Why?

Also, I'd hate Favre on my team because I KNOW he's going to choose to try and make crazy plays late in important games "because it's fun," and no doubt, for people to say "look what Brett Favre did" rather than do what's right to win the game. He's done it time and time again.  That selfishness makes him fun to watch to some, but the fact remains is that he will screw his team on and off the field in exchange for "look at Brett Favre!"

The "I'm retiring, oh wait no I'm not" stuff is annoying but what makes me dislike King Favre is how he's pulled this shit two years in a row now just to avoid having to do the drudgery part of training camp. If I was a player on the Vikings, it would piss me off for someone to just waltz in when the preseason games start after I spent the last month or so busting ass in the summer heat.  It's not like the staff is going to make him do two-a-days since it's clear this coaching staff kisses his ass, it comes off as him just doing what he wants to do instead of putting the team first.

Thing is, I bet he could still work with the team better and skip off season workouts. And it's a good bit longer than 2 years that he's been doing this. Just two years on the Vikes.

I'm not saying I would do it for the purpose of media attention or screwing over my employer or pissing off my co-workers.  But if somebody is willing to pay me more when I "said" I'm done working for them even if you're just playing them then that is also the fault of the employer.  I'm not saying I agree with what he does, simply that regardless of what he does off the field I am still a fan of his on the field.  Whether you agree or disagree with it the man got what he wanted and will earn more money at the same time.  In a strictly business sense, it's hard to argue with the game he has played: work less and make more money as they beg you to come back and work for them.

But that's not all he's doing. He could simply retire early in the off season, leaving a small window if they want him back bad enough, and still make them beg him back. Then he can tell them he isn't going to do training camp and if they think he's worth it, like the clearly do, they'll agree to it.  I don't see how playing the game he plays and putting everything off till the last minute is necessary. The team knows they want him back, they know he doesn't want to come to camp, there is no reason for these games other than to be of interest in the media. Make your demands and the team will meet them. He's doing something different than that.  The rest is simply "look at me" just like throwing a cross body pass to the middle of the field against a ball hawking D in the last seconds of a championship game rather than diving forward & hitting the ground (or throwing out of bounds) so your great kicker (& friend) can ice it is a "look at me" move.

Oh I agree with you, and I'm not saying that I agree with everything he does.  Basically, I don't concern myself much with what he does off the field.  Of course I follow what he does throughout every offseason because it's impossible to turn on the TV and not hear his name, but his actions don't get under my skin like they do some other people.  Do I understand why some people can't stand the guy or the games he plays?  Of course.  But I am a fan of his and while he should probably take the route you suggested above during the offseason instead of his yearly routine, I do not believe he will ever do that.  Is he an attention-whore?  Of course, and at the same time the media doesn't help matters by following every move the guys makes on and off the field feeding into his ego.  I don't have much of a reason why I like the guy, but I do, and unless he goes Michael Vick and commits some type of henious crime I will probably support the guy until he retires (which I actually believe will happen after this season (no really, I do)).

we got a vortex starting on this one.  If I wasn't a Vikings fan I'd hate Brett Favre.  I hated him as a Packer and thought the Jets were stupid for signing him and continuing the circus.  He may be a son of a bitch but he is my son of a bitch and I will cheer for him until he throws that last second interception in the playoffs or Super Bowl.  Then ahte him until he strings them along next season.

RE: Favre

Why can't both sides (Favre/Vikings) just say "He'll be in after camp".

People would "get it". He doesn't have an offense to learn, etc

True but I'll still take it. For bragging rights, if nothing else.

You do that. We'll just have to use that space where the governor's cup was and put in another one of those trophies with Mr. Lombardi's name on it.

Let's be honest with ourselves. Neither Dallas or Houston are going to the SB this year. The Cowboys are a lock for the NFC East but would still have to deal with Minnesota or NO. Barring a LOT of missteps by Peyton & Co., the Texans are a wild card team at best. That's it.

If a team makes the playoffs, anything can happen. Shit Da Bears made it to the Super Bowl with Rex Grossman and Kyle Orton QB-ing the team.
