    Next season, they can bring the same six guys plus RG3 to the coin toss :laugh:

    I enjoy it when people give Snyder the middle finger

    NE offense played pretty poor for the most part. D really stepped it up this game. Just gotta hold on to that No. 1 seed

    I was watching the game a little bit. I swear it sounded like there were more Pats fans in the stadium than Chargers fans. What's with that? There can't be that many actual MA transplants in SD.

    ^ It's winter and weather's terrible in MA. A trip to SD where one happens to catch the Pats game sounds pretty good to me.

    Hard to believe the Eagles only lost that game by 10. That game was nowhere near as close as the score indicated.

    Also, the Seahawks really seem to be an unlikable organization all around, other than Wilson and Lynch.

    And finally, I will be pissed forever that the Eagles drafted Brandon Graham while Earl Thomas was sitting right there.

    It's also the bandwagon effect of a team that's been good for many years, despite being coached by the planet earth version of emperor Palpatine (had to get a dig in to go with that compliment :p)

    I lived in SoCal in the mid-late 90's and it was amazing how many Cowboys "fans" I saw around (and this was when the Raiders and Rams were in town)

    Being a Heat fan, HRoi knows a lot about bandwagon fans. :fonz:


    No, but he's right. Same thing with there being Lakers and Yankees "fans". Probably never step foot in these cities but the team is doing awesome so why not support the winners they think? And with the Cowboys/Pats comparison, it's defo a generational thing too. Lot of Cowboys fans who grew up in that 90s era still cheer for them now (unfortunately....)

    And all over the nation you still find bandwagon Rams fans just be holding on to the glory of the Greatest Show on Turf years (of which cheated by the Patriots).

    I've always respected Earl Thomas from his days at Texas. Bobby Wanger doesn't seem too bad either.

    Well, Atlanta is still making a strong play for the NFC South crown, which will give them a home playoff game...

    Totally get that the Seahawks are pretty unlikable to fans of other teams - defense constantly pushed the envelope as far as what is legal and is pretty arrogant about it (Sherman etc.)

    I'm kind of surprised people seem to hate Pete Carroll though. He seems to be a pretty fun guy and always seems complimentary of other teams/players. He doesn't really do any dick move-stuff or have any horrible sideline antics like Jim Harbaugh does.
