Default Pick a non-loser team to cheer for

After living outsdide of Houston for the last 4 years, I've found that its almost impossible to get Texans game coverage or news if you live more than 200 miles away. Ive spent tons of time and money following this team, and more weeks than not, Ive had to walk out of a sports bar embarssed in my Texans jersey.

As such, I decided it was time I started following a local team. I picked the Ravens, because they are everything the Texans are not. A solid team with a rock solid defense.

I can't tell you how refreshing it is to finally watch a team play football the way its meant to. With attitude and toughness. It makes watchign the Texans D week in and week out a little more berable.

So who is your backup NFL team? THe one you cheer for once the Texans are eliminated from relevance?

The NFL season is too short to waste it on the Texans. By week 5 or 6 we're usually all but done playoff wise. Theres too much good football to be had

Steelers actually. I still have that memory of them from when the Oilers used to go up against them and I've got a good friend who is a Steeler fan so I just kind of started out wanting them to do good as long as it didn't interfere with the Texans "needs". Since we suck like the expansion Saints and Buc's and continue to suck for years and years I find that the Steelers "goals" and ours don't conflict much. See, they try to win a championship every year and we try to finally get over .500. Plus once the playoffs start the Texans no longer matter.

God I hate the Houston Texans right now. They're like a weekly (or bi-weekly maybe) dose of the Buffalo loss. They're like a M-F depression machine. They're everything that was bad about the Oilers (except the owner but McNair's starting to really piss me off now that I think about it....) with none of the good. They're like the Oilers inept early 70's and early 80's without ever getting better.

Jets. Buddy er... I mean Rex Ryan is everything Gary Kubiak is not, and he gets his team ready to play. Sanchez is an up and coming QB, and the New York defense plays with a fire the Texans could never even dream of except for when they feel like they have something to prove. The Jets D acts like they have something to prove every week.

For the most part I've been keeping the Steelers as my lover on the side. I just need a team who has a bruising offense and a relentless defense to channel my anger through, although lately I've been faltering towards the Ravens.

Good choices. Every once in a while the only way to make a marriage work is to have a lover or two on the side...

Default Re: Pick a non-loser team to cheer for

I don't have one. I have players that I root for, and that ends up resulting in some team that I'm rooting for, but really it's just players. Since Singletary took over, I find myself rooting for the 49ers, and when they drafted Coffee, that just sort of solidified it. Plus, I like that thye kept the Cowboys out of the SB so many times. I really want to see Kolb do well, so I'm rooting for the Eagles, which works doubly well when they play the Cowboys. I root for Brandon Jacobs, which also works well when they play the Cowboys. And I've always liked Santana Moss, which also works well when they play the Cowboys.

I think there's a trend in there, but more analysis is required.

I like the Saints, Rams, Patriots, and whoever plays the Cowboys. I can't ever legitimately follow them and love them though.

It is tempting, and call me dumb, but I'll continue to root for both teams whether they win the playoffs or pull a Lions and go 0-16. I guess if I *had* to pick a winning team to root for, I'd go with the 49ers, Vikings, or Jets.

Well, I don't know if I'd go with dumb, but I figure with that combo of teams, you had to choose one of them at some point. Some of us were born into unfortunate fandom, but choosing one of those willingly ... hmm. I'll have to think about that.

Denver is AFC #2 and Chicago is NFC team. I have always liked the tough nosed Chicago Bear D's of the past and I thought Kubes would bring his success in Denver with him to Htown.
