Two questions:
Which other team(s) will you be following this year?
Why?

Somebody started this thread last year and I really liked it. I'll start off with two teams that people hate the most around here.

The Titans
Even though I'm a Texans fan, I'm also a Longhorn. This also means that I'm still a Vince Young fan. He's still a lot of fun to watch. And I'm in Austin, so I don't really have a choice anyway. I usually have to go to my in-laws' house to see the Texans play. I gotta get Direct TV. (Don't worry....I still root for the Texans when they play Vince.)

The Cowboys
I always rooted for the Cowboys because they were the other Texas team. My family never taught me that I was supposed to despise them. But I also get bored with them pretty easily too. I'll be looking to see how Romo does as a second season starter and how Wade Phillips does as a head coach.

I doubt that either one will do too well.

The Eagles
This may be the most interesting one.

My in-laws are from Philly, so it seems like they're always on for some reason. Turned out that they were a lot of fun to watch last year after I got over the season opener. And Brian Westbrook is a badass.

The Houston homer in me is going to be keeping an eye on Kevin Kolb. McNabb is injury prone. It's just a matter of time before Kolb goes in.

Cowboys--Well though they are hated, they are still a top team in my heart due to growing up in Ft. Worth for 22 years. On the opposite side of the spectrum from most Houstonians, I had older brothers that went to UT when Earl was there so I was a big Oiler fan too growing up, even though my allegiance was in Dallas. These days I cheer for both Dallas and Houston..as you can see I'm here and have never entered a Cowboy board. This season should be interesting. I need to see which Romo shows up. Even the sloppy guy at the end of the year made plays here and there so I want to see if he can control himself a little more. T.O. has been quiet so far and I think their D should be outstanding. Their secondary is the question mark there but I think they will improve with Roy moving up and having Hamlin..same type player but better coverage guy at FS. I also think Barber may emerge as the top back.

Chargers--Out of non-Texan teams they have always been a favorite of mine since Fouts, Joiner, Jefferson and Winslow...Air Coryell. Plus they have LT, a fellow Frog. I just think they lost so much in coaching and so forth that it will be interesting to see if they can keep up what they were doing or if Norv ruins them. He should work well with Rivers but Norv teams seem to fail.

Any Team That Has My Fantasy Players--Reasonable :)

The Ravens- Since they are right down the road from me and I can usually scrounge free tickets from my wifes office.

The Cowboys- To see how Romo will do in this his second year as a starter.

The Redskins- See the the Ravens...

Texans & Colts

I always like to catch as many of our divisional rivals games as I can. Too many times you read the sportswriters review & it seems like they watched a different game.

Cardinals
I'd like to catch a few of their games this year. Fitzgerald has served me well in fantasy football & I think they're poised for a break out year.

HOU-TEX

I have to agree with you about the Cards. I've been looking for them to become a playoff contender for the past couple of years now. I think Green was the reason why they went nowhere. If Wisenhunt turns out to be the coach people think he's going to be, I see the Cards making a hard push this year.:)

What the heck is all the Cowpatty love about?

Cowboys - They are my #2 team.

Titans - I root for whoever is playing them. I would only root for them if they had to beat a team to get the Texans in the playoffs. LOL

Any NFL team. I'm a football fan! :D

As far as individual teams beyond the Texans...I think the Patriots could be a team to watch. They've added some offensive weapons, and I think it'll be interesting to see if the system and winning atmosphere can change a perennial malcontent like Moss.

Of course we get to watch the Cowboys every week. It's not really a choice unless you have the NFL Ticket. Obviously, I'll root against anyone that plays them (except for the Titans).

I like McNabb, so the Eagles are always fun to keep up with. We don't get a lot of their broadcasts, unless they play the Cowboys or get a Primetime game.

And, of course, there is our favorite divisional bully, the Colts. I'm interested to see how the champions rebound after losing so many quality players. I have little doubt that Manning will be in the playoffs once again, though.

C'mon, nobody is going to pick Carolina?

Outside of the Texan's i'll be keeping an eye on my Philly Eagles.

I think Kolb is a bit overrated and i'm not sure why Andy Used a second after resigning Feeley.Not saying that Feeley is a starter but it's not Like McNabb is in his late thirties or anything. I think once again McNabb will rebound and finish off how he started the year last year. I hope Westbrook stays healthy a full year again and we'll see a good portion of Tony Hunt I think. Jim Johnson's D is always fun to watch.

My Bro in law is a big Boy's fan and i'm curious to see what Romo shows up. Also can he rebound from the XP attempt play?

Another friend is a big Raiders fan and i'm hoping to see them do bettter...except when they play us.I'm curious to see if Kiffin will re-energize the bay area like Gruden did or another Al experiment blow up.

Having lived near Chi-town I will keep an eye on the Bears to see if they can get back to the super bowl.

What ever teams play on Sunday and Monday night.

Of course I will watch every single game of the Houston Texans.

I actually enjoy watching vince young play, but my second fav. team is the eagles, and i really like watching their brand of football. My man love extends beyond brian westbrook and onto the defense, because brian dawkins is a total BA. :bat:

1. The Cowboys -- They have been my favorite team since Day-One. I have been upset with them a time or two, but after a few days to cool off, they return to their right standing with me.

2. The Vikings -- Only because of Adrian Peterson.

3. The Saints -- They are interesting.

4. The Titans -- I want to track Vince Young's progress.

5. The Colts -- I like the organization as a whole.

Being an Irish fan I will be interested in the progress of Brady Quinn in Cleveland.

I could watch a Browns game :gun: only if Quinn were playing.

It's going to be interesting to me to follow the careers of Quinn vs Schaub.

As a kid I won a $1 bet on Super Bowl XVI when the 49ers beat the Bengals. I have been a 49er (and Joe Montana) fan ever since. However, having lived most of my life away from any NFL towns, I am a Cowboys fan. Besides the Texans, those are the only two teams I ever watch.

1. Patriots. They play a 1st place schedule and that guarantees good matchups most of the time. They also added a bunch of interesting pieces to an already talented team.

2. Colts. I hate the guy as a Texans fan, but I gotta say I love watching Peyton play QB. He is just the epitome of what playing QB is all about.

3. Lions. I know, I know. Detroit sucks. But with all the smack talk coming out of Detroit, I just gotta see if they can back it up. Adding Calvin Johnson to an already talented WR corps could make this The Greatest Show On Turf 2 for Martz.

4. Cowboys. Gotta see if Bum's son can withstand the Cowboy maelstrom of Owens, fumbling extra point trys, and perennial unreasonable expectations. They also got some heavy hitters on defense.

5. Titans. Gotta see if VY can overcome the trainwreck that has become the Titans. I think there is too much for him to overcome but if VY has shown us anything in his career, it is to never bet against him.

Honorable Mention: Browns and Raiders - Love watching new QBs try and make it in the league. If Russell and/or Quinn win the starting job, I wouldn't mind checking them out on Sunday Ticket.

Of course I will watch the Texans, but aisde from them:
1. The Bears. They are my adopted NFC team from when I lived in Chicago. I love their defense and would love for the Texans to become a mean looking D like the bears.

2. Broncos. I live in Denver, so its always good to see the local team do well(except when against Htown of course!)

3. Philadelphia: good friend of mine is an Iggles fan and for him I support Philly.

Me:

Philadelphia Eagles - I lived for a couple of years near Philly and went to a couple of Eagles games while I was a there. They're my #2 team. They were my #1 team for a couple of years before the Texans existed.

My Wife:

Tennessee Titans - She's a big VY fan. I wasn't aware of this fact when I married her 20 years ago or I might have reconsidered. She actually continued rooting for the Titans even after Adams moved them. She still considered all those guys "hers" (McNair, Chandler, Matthews, George, etc.)

NINERS!! My fav team in the NFC. They're still in the building mode, but, so are the Texans. Someday I hope to see a Niner/Texan SB!!lol Lot's of changes with both teams, so should be fun to see them both grow into SB contenders!! SOMEDAY!!

Cards: My pick to be the SLEEPER team this year.

Pats and Colts!! Simply great football when those two teams are on the field!!

Aside from Houston games, I always end up watching Seahawks games, thanks to dual coverage on DirecTV. I'm too cheap for Sunday Ticket, and this usually brings two extra games too choose from.

Along with that, I'll enjoy the Titans inevitable suffering, more fumbles by Romo, and (hopefully) watching Kolb play for the Eagles.

eagles- play good football and will be back in the SB this yr if mcnabb is, and stays, healthy

bengals and denver

I'm gonna be paying special attention to the NFC South this year:
(1) Guy who use to play in these parts but now a backup with the Panthers
represents a career I'm more than just casually interested in, especially if he should become their starting signal-caller.
(2) Michael Vick adventures this fall in ATL, both on and off the field, is one of the leading curiosities in the NFL which now takes on a special feature because we now have his former understudy.
(3) The continuing saga of the Saints post Katrina and also how Reggie Bushs carrer continues to develop over there is for obvious reasons.
(4) And this is our interconference rival for '07.

My Sunday viewing during Texans away games goes like this:
Main screen gets the Texans if on HD
2nd Screen gets the best match up
3rd screen gets the second best match up
4th screen gets the NFL ticket's Red Zone channel

Football is only here for five months and I need to get a full fix.

I'll ask the obvious question....do you watch all these game at once?

If you do, then you must take real good care of your wife the other 7 months of the year. :heart:

I'll follow the Cowboys since I'm a Cowboy fan.:tomato:
(For the record I was screaming my ass off for the Texans on 19-10 day.)

I do usually pay more attention to the Packers since I like Favre.
I'll pay more attention to every team that plays the inbred children of Uranus.

Other than that, it will depend on who is on my fantasy team as to who I pay much attention to.

You have more TV's on at time than the Situation Room at the White House...

Is it DirecTV that allows the "Split Screen" to watch several games at one time?

I'm suprised only one person on here elected the 49ers as the team to watch.

I think they'll be fun with Alex Smith in his 3rd season, along with Gore, Vernon Davis, and the newly aquired Nate Clemens.

I think they'll re-gain the NFC West and hang onto it for a few years.

Cowboys. It's probably blasphemous to root for both the Cowboys and Texans, but I do it anyway. I grew up as a Cowboys fan and still root for them. Not quite as much as I used to, but I still follow them on a regular basis.

Patriots. I don't really like the team, but I'm interested to see how well Randy Moss does under Belichek.

Bengals--I am from Ohio, have a grudge against the Clowns, and I love their style of play. Plus there are many quality guys on the team, even though the troublemakers get all the press.

Cardinals--I gravitate towards the "loser" teams. I think they are due to really break out (finally). They are great on paper and need only live up to potential. They remind me something of myself.
