Who do you root for besides the Saints?

My best friend is a diehard Raider fan, and since they play in the AFC I will pull for them, especially if they are playing an NFC team and only if that NFC team is not the Saints. I got serious bragging rights last year! Plus I like the fact that there is a serious possibility that someone might get stabbed or shot at one of their games. It's like Thunderdome out there in Oakland.

If the Saints left New Orleans my favorite team would be whomever played the new Saints team -- I would want that new city to have the worst team in pro football -- I mean a really bad team --- losers by 20 points each and every game

Indy.

I went to college just north of there. In fact when the Colts first moved to Indy, they had their training camp there. I even worked security for the first summer before graduating.

I'm from pittsburgh, and moving back at the end of June, so I got to go with my Pittsburgh Steelers. What's not to like, a small market with extremely passionate fans. A blue coller town with a blue coller team.

Last year was a thing of beauty (helped offset some of those misserable saints games in the beginning of the year). I loved their game plan. "we're gonna run the ball in your face, and you have to try to stop us." Nothing fancy, just see who's tougher.

The Steelers run game from last year gives me high hopes for the Saints defense this year. I got to say that there wasn't too much different with last years Steelers defense from the year before (when they were terrible) other than a healthy offensive line and running game. The defense looked fantastic last year with just a few additions to the secondary. I'm sure it helped that they were only on the field about 15 minutes a game! Although, Dick LeBeau's defensive schemes could have also had something to do with that improvement. Let's hope that Venturi is going to be DC in name only and this "defensive quality control"guy, or whatever he is, does a better job.

Here's hoping for Saints and Steelers in the superbowl!! Then I can celebrate no matter what.

Oh yeah, I also like Green Bay. You got to love Bret Favre.

I root for anybody who is playing the Falcons. And I mean -anybody-. Those dirty birds should be boiled into gumbo.

I like the Bucs - they suffered almost as much as we did. I know they're a rival, but they were even worse than us for a while. I respect their older fans that stuck it out through the bad years.

Falcons - PURE DISGUST - cook 'em (and never forgive Bartkowski!)
Rams - severe dislike, enjoying seeing Turley eat crow
49'er - glad they're finally suffering, it's time they got some crappy seasons after Montana/Young
Cowboys - borderline dislike - "America's Team" - my a$$
Redskins - pure antipathy for Theisman, and still pissed about the Ricky Williams trade
Giants - notorious for dirty ball, and remember the 'officiating' after first post 9/11 game? - disgusting
Broncos - "have we broken anyone's legs yet today at Mile High?"

On a more positive note, teams I often root for:
Bucs - gotta respect 'em for the decade+ of agony, even though they've done better than us
Colts - nice seeing Petyon setting all those records, and UNITAS was GREAT!
Arizona - similar to us, fans deserve a break
Cleveland - remained loyal DOGS even when betrayed by team going bye-bye
Pittsburg - Bradshaw still cracks me up to this day

I guess I often root for the perennial underachievers most of the time. Well, being a Saints fan... go figure. But I get tired of the same old teams always doing the whipping.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!

Good point. Yeah, I root for Cincy too, though things weren't so bad with for a while with Esiason....

Remember when that poor guy held up the sign saying 'hey NFL, please don't fine me again'? So they promptly went and fined him again? Jeez, they have my sympathies.

Yeah, I like Cincy, even though they've been to the big game.
