    None of this " I am a HYUUGE STEELER FAN AND NO OTHER TEAM SATISFIES ME LIKE THE BLACK AND GOLD DO". Yes, I get it you have your butt cheeks painted black and gold lol. I love this franchise more than any franchise but I do semi root for other teams although I don't really follow them.

    So if you have a 2nd team just to root on the side, who is it and why? Are you a big fan of that team or you don't really care?

    I guess mine would have to be the NYG because of the Rooney/Mara connection, plus they prevented Patriots from having more rings than us.

    Eli is my hero for whupping Brady.

    I root for a few others;
    Colts (lived in Indy for 40 years),
    Dolphins (don't know why really, The dolphin on the helmet maybe),
    Chiefs (not really, but like A. Reid & hate the rest of the AFC west)
    Anybody playing the Cowboys

    As a young child of the 80s I was initially a 49ers and Montana fan, but I have no use for the team now.

    I don't think I have a 2nd team necessarily but I will root for guys I liked in college who are now in the NFL with other teams.

    Today is their annual post season home collapse. Until they get that 26 year monkey off their backs, I have a hard time getting on the chefs bandwagon. Maybe this is their year with Mahomies.

    Rams this year due to having money on them. Otherwise it's Atlanta. I don't care one bit for the team, but I'm a big Julio Jones fan so I cheer for Atlanta, except when they're playing us

    I've always had a soft spot in my heart for the sad sack Lions. They are generally irrelevant by week ten, I like Matthew Stafford, I love their uniforms........and I feel bad for their fans.

    Sorry, went ahead and fixed that. Was watching the Devils/Flyers and Drew Stafford is a winger for NJ. It's a ***** gettin' old.

    I kinda root for the 49ers or Saints since it’s NFC only if it ain’t the Steelers.

    As I’m writing this the hard Beagles are whopping the saints :(. Maybe I’m the jinx, it seemed every team I root for loses.

    I took up the buccaneers as my NFC team back when they were still in those god awful orange and white uniforme. They were painful to watch.

    Some buddies at work have other teams, and I'll root for them if they're not playing the Steelers (Vikes, Bears, specifically) One guy likes the Ravens, but that ain't never gonna happen.

    For myself, I kinda like the Saints because of their home city. Next year I'll kinda like the Raiders for the same reason.

    My NFC team are the Vikings. Not diehard but always liked their defense. That 2-0 halftime lead we had on them kind of got me interested in them. I enjoyed the 16-6 win for our first.
