    I hope that doesn't happen. If they end up moving which seems quite inevitable at this point, I hope it's anywhere but LA. I don't want to be in the same division as some new LA team that the media will be drooling over and covering non stop. If it is anywhere but LA, then I won't really care because NY already has two teams.

    I think they would re-align the conferences a little bit if the Jags move to LA. Would be a shame though since we have a good rivalry going against them.

    I doubt they would realign with a Jags move to LA. While LA is west it is still also south. Also if you look at who is in the current AFC West I don't see any of those teams moving from there with those long time rivalries in place.

    Would it be a bad thing to have the Texans in a division with a large market, high profile team? I don't think so. More chances of the Texans getting national TV exposure.

    You mean they are the only division team the Texans can beat on a regular basis.

    I've always wanted to see the Saint's moved into our Division. I think that would make a nice regional rivalry.

    Do they even have a rivalry with anyone?

    Man I would love to be in the same division as an LA team. We get maybe 1 nationally televised game a year. Having a big market like LA in the division would instantly give us some more national games

    Won't happen, but I would like them to throw the 32 teams into a computer and identify the 16 sets of closest teams. That identifies AFC and NFC by splitting the pairs. Then divide into north south east and west. Then make the swing games be the closest in division and out of division teams.

    I understand how they do it now and everyone playing everyone but it would be nice to regularly play Dallas and New Orleans. Let's face it, do we give a crap about Indy other than they are in our division?

    It's so easy to solve this. Move the Rams back to LA where they belong and then slide the Jaguars over to St Louis where they were originally expected to be and it's problem solved. Jags fans can go back to rooting for the Falcons or the Bucs.

    If the Jaguars move to LA, I would think they'd want to be placed in the AFC West division. KC Chiefs seem like the logical choice to move out and into the AFC South. As weird as that sounds, they are the furthest from the West Coast and (relatively) close in Indianapolis.

    On the other hand, it would be nice to whip LA's arse twice a year!

    I would love to have a LA team in the division, for many reasons. The most emotional one being I grew up in Vegas and was only able to view LA teams, and hated everything about LA. This would be hater Nirvana for me.

    From a re-alignment standpoint, KC ain't moving anywhere without the Raiders, Chargers and Broncos. However, their divisional commute would be the toughest in the league.

    I believe their rivals were the Bucs, but since I haven't followed them for a while, that could have changed.

    We will see the Toronto Bills before the Los Angeles Jaguars. Trust me on that one.

    I thought maybe they were going with glittery tickets that sparkle in the sun... :thinking:

    They'll just give those games to Indy and Tenn.

    Since they are an LA team, I'm sure they would like to help them win. They could put LA Jags in the NFC West and move The Rams to the AFC South.

    Possibly the Jaguars and Lions merge to form a mediocre team? Both cats ... both suck and can not draw fans ... both have terrible coaches.
