Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

Oh. I almost forgot.

I like UT sometimes, because my sister went to school there. I love Austin, one of the coolest places I have ever been.

At the same time, it is very hard not to root against them. Especially with all of those commercials telling me to demand LHN.

No, ESPN. I don't want Longhorn Network.

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

I've always had a soft place for the KC Chiefs, sorta that underdog team that you hope will some day get it right and build a winning team. I also respect the hell out of the Pittsburgh Steelers organization due the Rooney family and all they've done for football over the years.

Teams I strongly dislike:
Titans-aholes
Patriots-aholes
Jets
Cowboys, not the team but Jerry Jones is an ahole.

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

NINERS!! Been a passionate fan of the Niners since I was a teen. I presently have a Niner blanket on one end of my couch and a TEXAN one on the other end! I have a large Texan, and Niner, snowman sitting on top of my computer table. My TEXAN tree shares a branch or two with the Niners! Just a reminder, everyday, of how close my dream of seeing my two favorite teams meet up in the SB just might be to coming true. The ONLY time I pull against them is when they play our TEXANS!!

Cowboys, Titans, and Saints are my "I HATE YOU" teams! I pull for whoever they are playing. If they play each other, I don't watch.

In big games that the Texans are not involved in, I usually pull for the underdog, unless it involves one of the three above mentioned teams!

Just to be COMPLETELY clear on this matter, our TEXANS are #1 in my life!! IF we do meet up in the SB, the Niners can kiss my fat old butt!!

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

Houston Texans all the way for me.

And root for whoever plays the Titans. I live for the day that Houston has a championship and the Titans go 0-16 for a couple of seasons.

I respect some people a lot, but do not actively wear their gear or root for their teams unless it's a playoff situation that does not involve our hometown team (which has been easy up to last year, now I want everyone in the AFC to blow up so our Texans can have an easier road to NOLA).

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

I have a soft spot for the Pats only because I like Tom Brady, no homo. OK, maybe just a little bit homo, and my 6 year old step-daughter has a major crush on him now.

I hate the Titans with every fiber of my being and wish nothing but bad things for that franchise. Also despise the Saints.

He is one of the guys that I have tremendous respect for, and the partnership between him and Belichick is a thing of wonder. But I had to stop rooting for them this season because they are a threat to our team's success. I do not want to see the Patriots in the post-season, but it's probably inevitable.

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

The Packers

Because:

-I've been up there a few times and it's a nice part of the country (except in the Winter).

-The history involved with the organization and people

-They're owned by the people, not the man

I don't really have a favorite college team. I like watching them all. I could watch college football all day long when the wife allows it

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

My family moved to KC when I was 8, and I watched the Chiefs win Super Bowl IV when I was nine. Lived in the KC area until I moved to Houston in 1984, and have continued to be a Chiefs fan, although it's a distant second to the Texans. The Chiefs current ownership and management are definitely making it a challenge to continue to be a fan.

I pull for Peyton Manning, I enjoy watching him play and I like to see him doing well this year until he meets the Texans again.


I watch the cowboys and would really enjoy it if both the Texans and Cowboys became really good teams so that we might have a few runs at an all Texas super bowl

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

I grew up an Oiler fan and was loyal until they left. When they did leave the local media tried to shove the Cowboys down my throat and pissed me off. I became a Texans fan the moment they formed and were playing around with calling themselves the "Rough-necks". I begrudgingly became a Steeler fan when they played the Cowboys in that Superbowl which the quarterback whose name I shall NEVER utter threw three interceptions to the same talentless DB and GAVE Dallas their 5th ring. The Steelers became my #2 team when a rookie back up QB took over their offense and brought them to an AFC championship and then won a SUPERBOWL a couple of years later (tying the Cowgirls) and then a couple of years later I bought my terrible towel. when they won #6 and shut the Cowboys up they forever became my #2 team. My #3 team is WHOEVER is playing the Cowgirls THIS WEEK!

To recap. My teams are.


#1 Texans!

#2 Pittsburgh Steelers

ANYBODY Who is playing the Dallas Cowboys!

Texans, of course.

Whoever is playing the Cowboys or Tinnbreds.

If the Cowboys are playing the Tinnbreds?
I hope the stadium collapses on both teams.

My teams are:

Texans

49ers

Yet another reason Bill rules. Honestly watching the TITans lose is just comedy for me.

I root for the Texans and anybody playing the Cowboys, Titans, Colts and Jags. And of course, Harvard Crimson. I hate the NCAA for specifically targeting us in '78 by splitting division 1 football into 2 subdivisions.

Did I mention anybody playing the Cowboys?

Oakland Raiders first and foremost. I root for the Texans second because I live in Houston, and I also have a soft spot for the Redskins nowadays (hated them growing up) because the rest of my family supports them . . . and RG3 is fun to watch. And yes, that means I root for the Raiders when they play the Texans.

Default Re: Other Than the Texans, Who Do You Root For?

I like to see top NFC and top AFC teams not named texans -lose --so I'll root for the other team (underdog). In doing so, if a conflict arises where that means rooting for an afc south rival - I basically root for an outcome that most favorably impacts the texans.

As for a regular team that I root for as a general rule after the texans - No
