Saints aren't in the playoffs....so whose bandwagon are you on?

Saints aren't in the playoffs....so whose bandwagon are you on?

Welp, the stupid Vikings won in Houston so even though Brees & Co took care of business in Dallas, they only have one more week left of the Lost Season of 2012 and that's it. My question is simple: what team's bandwagon will you now jump on during the playoffs? I don't mean it in an unfaithful way but it's nice to have someone to root for in January isn't it, even if it's not the Saints this year?

For me: I think I'll be rooting for the Broncos. There's the Manning connection to NOLA naturally, but also the fact that he embarassed our joke of a local team this year, and the amazing nature of his comeback. The dude is just playing amazing football right now. And plus, they're an AFC team so it's not QUITE the sports bigamy I'd be commiting rooting for an NFC team. I couldn't front run and be a 49ers fan, for instance, especially now in light of their recent history with uis.

So what say you? What team will you adopt for January?

Honestly I will not be watching after we dispose of the Panthers next week.

I will break out the 2009 playoff games and SuperBowl XLIV and watch them.

If forced to pick, I would prefer that the Texans win, but will basically be happy with anyone except the @#%$#@^%$# 49ers winning...

The classy thing would be to stay with in your division and root for your rival. Which I do - Next up for me would be Houston (because they've never been) and Minnesota because they have never won.

Re: Saints aren't in the playoffs....so whose bandwagon are you on?

I will be doing the same thing I always do outside the NFC or whenever the Saints are eliminated - I root for the GOOD GAME philosophy in the playoffs. I don't root for any team, I just want to see a freaking GOOD GAME. Given any random game on TV I will tend to pull for the underdog, but when it comes to the NFL without the Saints in the mix, I just want to see the Falcons lose miserably, and everything else I want to be a really good exciting game.

Re: Saints aren't in the playoffs....so whose bandwagon are you on?

I will have a hatred for every team in the playoffs. I will hope especially for the Falcons, 49ers and Patriots to lose, but I don't care who wins it. When I was a kid, for some reason I used to pull for the Packers in the playoffs when the Saints, as always back then, didn't make it. I don't know why. I know that I hate the Packers now. Which reminds me... I hope the Packers lose, too.

Houston. They have a connection with the Sai9nts. When Kubiak came on board he modeled their franchise after the Saints. So I'm pulling for them.......kind of an extension of the Saints.

The Saints.

My colors don't change to belong then change back to belong again.

Any team playing the bird droppings!

They got their one annual chance to play in the Superdome; they should have taken pictures when they were here earlier!
