    Re: Greg McElroy named Jets starting QB for Sunday's game vs. Chargers

    LOL Earle you sound like me... If I sit down to watch a pro game I pull for the team with the most Bama players or if one of the star players is from Bama..starting to get a little tough honestly
    Hey Daddy why doesn't Auburn have a number beside their name? 5 year old son during the iron bowl.

    I'm also a Red Wings fan (Love their colors, uniform, and organization), a fan of the defunct Seattle Supersonics (Again, the colors, uniform, and the fact they weren't the Bulls during the 90's), and the Chicago Cubs (They were always on TV and not named the Atlanta Braves).
    I too am a fan of different localities depending on the sport. I'm probably the only person in the country who is a die-hard fan of Bama football/basketball/gymnastics, Wake Forest (basketball/football), San Antonio Spurs, and Washington Redskins. I'm also a fan of the Red Wings and Bruins in hockey (bizarre, I know) and Braves and Red Sox, although less of a die-hard on those. Each team has a logical story that has nothing to do with winning records, but it's a tangled web of emotions.

    The only part that seems common about my fandom are my loathed teams: Lakers, (now) Heat, Cowboys, Yankees, Flyers, and Avalanche.

    Same here. I live near Baltimore, but I can't work up much enthusiasm for either the Ravens or the Redskins. I've only ever cared about two NFL teams: Jets (Namath/Todd) and Raiders (Stabler).

    I'm a Bama fan first and foremost. However I don't just pull for the school and not the player. The guys have bled,hurt themselves, and busted tail for Bama. They are Bama family now and once in you are always in unless you embarass the family. Part of it could be because I don't really like pro ball. For a variety of reasons. I think people that like pro ball are more apt to have that disconnect once a player leaves Bama because there is so much player movement in the nfl. And btw if you follow the player you can pull for the Saints and the Falcons and the Jets and the Patriots.

    Bama fan first and want our guys to do well in NFL. Regarding conferences, I am an NFC east fan and never liked AFC. But I like GMAC and Tebow. I hope the Jets get creative and use both in the backfield in unique scenarios and try some razzle dazzle. IMO, Tebow needs to be on the field and GMAC is a coach playing QB. I have only cheered for Jets when they had Namath, Todd as QB's and that's the only times. RTR

    I never understood why the de-activated him after he came in and lead them to the TD drive for the game winning points a couple of weeks ago...idiot front-office moves all around for the NYJ

    I've been saying that for some time. Heck, I'd settle for a compromise - either the Pat Patriot logo with the current blue uniform top or the current logo with the old red uniform top.

    Most Patriot merchandise I own has the Pat Patriot logo.

    Speaking of uniforms, I liked the Pats better when your avatar was on their helmets.

    Not going to argue with you on that one. One of the best logos/uniform combinations in the NFL.

    The problem with it, though, was that logo represented a lot of lean and horrendous seasons (Outside of the 1985 season where they lucked their way into being slaughtered by Chicago in the Super Bowl).
