Other Teams I am Rooting for this Year: Chicago and Jax

bigbluewreckingcrew25 : 8/11/2017 8:54 am
I am really hoping Coughlin can turn Jacksonville around to what they were when he first started there. I am also really hoping Victor Cruz has a great season for Chicago. I was so happy to see him get that TD last night. Cruz gave all of us fans one of the greatest seasons in franchise history in 2011. The guy should never have to buy a drink or a meal for himself in New York ever again.
Well, the Bears do love our cast-offs

Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Prince Amukamara, Quintin Demps


Plus, they have Reese's favorite son, Leonard Floyd. Haha

Don't forget the lame duck John Fox.

LMFAO! Touche!
Cleveland and Buffalo

Would love to see either of them do well in the AFC

It's hard to not root for the Falcons.
Buffalo for sure too  
bigbluewreckingcrew25 : 8/11/2017 9:27 am : link
I feel terrible for that fan base. Lose 4 Super Bowls in a row...the Music City Miracle, and not making the playoffs since that game..and of course having to deal with Sexy Rexy the past few years.
I mentioned it in the pre-game thread for Thursday night,  
Diver_Down : 8/11/2017 9:35 am : link
but it bears repeating. Jax has a running game. Fournette is everything that scouts expected. And Cam Robinson looked good. Of course, it is meaningless that they beat the Patriots last night. But to an organization that is used to losing, it is a big deal. Myles Jack looked good, but needs to shake off more rust. They will be an easy team to root for. In the AFC South, the Colts are a mess with injuries; Texans had a defense, but who knows what they have this year; Titans are the favorite and I love their running game. But Jax might be able to give them a run for the division if they can put it together.

None. I follow with interest. I root for success of certain individuals such as TC. If that means jax has success so be it but they aren't what drives it.

Giants Only and Forever.
Considering I expect the Bears to cut Cruz,  
Mad Mike : 8/11/2017 9:52 am : link
I don't see much reason to root for them. (And if he makes the team, I'll be happy to see him do well, but would only root for the Bears in games where it advantages the Giants for them to win). I'd be happy to see Coughlin do well, and it will certainly make bbi more entertaining. If they do better than us this year (pretty implausible, but hey, you never know), whoa nelly, the gerbil will die for sure.
Jax yes.  
mattlawson : 8/11/2017 10:01 am : link
Bears - fuck no
Screw all 31 other teams in the NFL except for the Giants.  
Optimus-NY : 8/11/2017 10:17 am : link
Fans in Buffalo can go on losing. I went up there in the middle of their heyday and listened to their garbage sports radio. They were sooooo self-centered and entitled. The universe revolved around the Bills. Screw them.

The Bears? Who Cares, as Smokin' Jay Cutler would say. Let them live off of that 85 Super Bowl and continue to pretend that they were the team of the 80s.

Jacksonville? Let TC see that it's time to sit back and enjoy his grandkids They won't do shit. No HC worth his salt will put up with this guy looking over his shoulder like he is. Marrone sucks, so he needs to shut his mouth, but secretly he probably despises it.

The only team I root for is the NYG. This is one odd ass convo.
I only root for is the Giants  
Matt in SGS : 8/11/2017 10:36 am : link
and if/when the Giants are bounced, I root against the rest of the NFC East to end their season without a title. Beyond that, depending on the year, against the Jets just for fun, but this year I don't think I'll need to worry about the Jets.

Seems like that would be more of a reason to hate them, actually. Homer fans EVERYWHERE and non stop coverage in the media would drive me insane if I lived in a different market.
Happy for VC, but I hate the fucking Bears.  
Section331 : 8/11/2017 10:41 am : link
It probably goes back to their mid-80's teams, which I detested. It will be interesting to see how TC does in Jax.
I have a hard time rooting for any NFC team  
larryflower37 : 8/11/2017 10:42 am : link
but Chicago would be a good story.
I would love for Buffalo and Maimi put some pressure on NE for once

I can name 4 teams in the NFC (outside of our division) I would love to absolutely implode

Carolina- Who doesn't like to see Cam Newton act when they lose

Seattle- 1 name- Pete Carroll

Green Bay-Aaron Rodgers constant "we will come back attitude".

LA Rams- I live in St. Louis- Kronke is a tool
Standing Os for Optimus and Matt!

I was in Jax last week, and had an event to go to  
Section331 : 8/11/2017 10:44 am : link
on the top floor of one of the nicer condo buildings in town. As I'm getting on the elevator, 2 very fit young men get off wearing Jags workout gear (their athletic complex was right across the river). When I got on the elevator, it reeked of weed. All I could think was I hope those guys had already been tested!

Supp Greg! This is how I feel about every other team in the league:

I want another Patriots-Giants Super Bowl...  
Milton : 8/11/2017 10:57 am : link
And this time it won't come down to the last play.
Strangely...  
FatMan in Charlotte : 8/11/2017 11:05 am : link

I love having the legacy that we beat the supposed best team ever. If we play them a 3rd time and lose, some of that luster is gone.
I too want every NFC East team to lose  
Big Blue '56 : 8/11/2017 11:08 am : link
and ultimately eliminated UNLESS there's benefit to us..I'd love TC's team to do well, but won't bother watching their games..I ALWAYS want the Jets to lose, unless, again, it benefits us..
Fuck other teams  
B in ALB : 8/11/2017 11:09 am : link
I want every other team to suffer as much as possible. Fans too. They can all eat a collective bag of prolapsed assholes.

Might be unpopular but I have a soft spot for the Eagles  
j_rud : 8/11/2017 11:21 am : link
My entire family is Philly fans so I've seen them suffer a lot. I mean, I know they're a rival but are the really that...HA! Just joking. Fuck those guys. The Eagles, I mean. And my family. At least from September thru February.

All you have to do whenever you start to feel that ridiculous "soft spot" is think about how freaking unbearable your entire family would be if they somehow ever won a Super Bowl. You would NEVER hear the end of it for the rest of your life. Just think about that.

We won't lose! And think of how much more entrenched the legacy will be if it's three for three. Two can be chalked up to coincidence, but three is undeniable dominance.

My wife's family is Packer fans, they are good people but I would enjoy 0-16 season and Aaron Rodgers throw 16 game ending pick 6's
I Root For The Giants  
Trainmaster : 8/11/2017 12:02 pm : link
and root against the other 31 teams, with the intensity varying depending on what benefits the Giants most.

No "second team" or "second favorite". As I Giants fan, I can find some reason to root against every team. Some are easy: Dallas, Philly, Washington, 49ers, Packers; others a little IMHO harder: Jacksonville, Miami, Denver.
It'd be nice to see  
old man : 8/11/2017 1:51 pm : link
the Browns and Jax, who have been down for so long, start to turn themselves around. Rams too, but theyre on our schedule.
Tennessee Titans  
gogiants : 8/11/2017 6:12 pm : link
1) An AFC team not called the Patriots
2) Titans have not been in the playoffs in 9 years and have never won a Super Bowl. Last championship was 55 seasons ago as Houston Oilers.
3) Last year Titans had 1st winning season in 5 years.
4) QB Marcus Mariota is talented, humble, hard working and tough. I think he has similar traits to Eli.
5) Exciting draft picks for the last 2 drafts - WR Corey Davis, DB Adoree Jackson, WR Taywan Taylor, TE Jonnu Smith, LB Jayon Brown, RB Khalfani Muhammad, OL Jack Conklin, RB Derrick Henry, DB Kevin Byard, WR Tajae Sharpe, DL Kevin Dodd.
