I know this is out of season, but I was reading in the "Who Have You Met" thread that Motti is a fan of the Jets. Amen to his quote:

JETS!!!

I'm a big Jets fan & this past season I started rooting for the Eagles as well. Anyway, the convo pickedup on the topic of the NFL, & I figured this thread might be a popluar spot...or it may flop 'cause it is off-season. Well, you guys be the judge...

To start us off, who else was disappointed w/ the Superbowl?? I didn't like either team at all -- the Pats rival the Jets & the Panthers took the Eagles out of the Superbowl. I ended up rooting for the team I hated less, the Panthers, just spurring me on to despise NE. I was surprised though at Vinateri's misses & the lack of interceptions, it just wasn't a normal Patriot game ('cept for the game winning FG.)
I just hate stupid people.

GO JETS!!!!

Well, that goes to the reason I stayed out of the hockey thread, cause I never realy cared for the sport. But, if anyone else desires to talk about football, NA football that is, this is the place to do it.

I figure that is the Canadian Football League. And that will be a no. I am not a nut when it comes to the sport, so I don't go looking for games. I wouldn't even know where to look if I wanted to watch it.
I just hate stupid people.

I was rooting for the Panthers in the Super Bowl and was disappointed by the outcome as was my wife. I was hoping for a trifecta of flubbed field goals by Vinatieri. Alas, it was not so.

My wife and I are big Bears fans as we live in Chicago. Hoping for better things from them next season since they have a pretty nice new coaching staff. Let's just see what happens in terms of off-season acquisitions and the draft.

My wife is a big fan of place kickers since her brother is one for Wisconsin Lutheran College. Since his team does not have a kicker coach, his head coach feels guilty at the lack of specialized training that her brother has received (granted he's only a freshman right now). So his head coach is calling in a favor and he will be training this summer under the watchful eye of Packers' place kicker Ryan Longwell. Not too bad, eh?

And what makes this all so great is that I have a wife who loves football and will plop down on the couch with me and watch games and eat chips and dip and drink beer. How does it get any better?

The thing that's cool about the Longwell stuff is that her brother is a damn good kicker. Was named to all conference in high school, etc. Kickers are rarely drafted in the NFL (I believe only one place kicker has been drafted to date), so it's all walk on and word of mouth for kickers. If he impresses the hell out of Longwell, who knows what could happen?

I figured you'd be a Cowboys fan. I like them now that the Triumvirate of Evil is gone. Quincy Carter has the potential to be really good. I just hope Parcells can milk him for all he's worth.

E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!!! Dallas has and always will suck in my mind. Sorry Psycho_Dayv, I lived all my life in South Jersey and feel it is my dudy to hate the Cowboys. I still can't believe that Birds got to the NFC Championchip game 3 years in row, had the home field adavantage twice could'nt win any of them. I am very broken hearted about it. I hope they sign some good Wide recievers in off season.

If you live in South Jersey, isn't it your civic responsibility to root for either the Jets or Giants?

Wrong!

The Jet and Giants belong to North Jersey and New York. People from South Jersey root for the Philly teams

Interesting how the regional alliances split up in the NFL.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Its not just in the NFL. its true with all four Major sports

While North Jersey and New York cheer for the Mets,Yankess, Nets, Knicks, Devils,Rangers, and Islanders
