A Haters Guide for Rooting for Remaining Teams

Recommended Posts

For all the fans wanting an NFC team to win; you do realize that just makes the Bills look weaker, right? Basically we couldn’t get to the top of the loser’s bracket.

  I'm rooting for the 49ers, love their defense. Wife and I went to a lot of Oregon Duck games when Armstead and Buckner played d line together. Seeing them together on probably the best d line in the NFL is pretty cool. 

   Knowing BB wanted to keep Jimmy G but was overruled by Kraft would make their victory that much sweeter.

  Who cares? The Bills were not yet good enough to win it all. A few more pieces and maybe next year they get there.

So just like the glory years, we get to the dance from a soft conference and lose. That is your hope/dream/desire?

  The Bills lost, they won't be going to the SB this year. Not sure what you are trying to say.

We blew a 16-0 lead to a team that just gave up 51 points.  I could care less about what conference wins the Superbowl.  I'm hoping for a 49ers and Chiefs Superbowl because it would be the most intriguing of the possible matchups.

Anyone else find it strange that it’s likely going to be GB vs KC, a rematch of Super Bowl I in the NFL’s 100th season. A little strange is all I’m suggesting.

I’m betting that the NFL would be very happy with that Super Bowl I matchup for their 100th season.

 

BTW, it’s also strange that all the “bird” teams (Ravens, Seahawks, Eagles) and all the “hoof/horn” teams (Buffalo, Vikings, Texans) are out.

This is great. 
 

The safest for me is to root for KC or Tennessee over San Fran.


1) KC: I like Mahomes and consider Chiefs fans to be some of the best in the NFL. They are also exciting to watch and other than Kelce and Decoy Watson, don’t have players I have hate. 
 

2) Tenn. Good underdog story. No one I really despise. I like Henry. The fact that the Bills beat them would also make me feel good about their success.

 

3) Houston: No way, for obvious reasons—

still bitter.

 

4) San Fran. Solid team. No really super annoying players. 
 

5) Seattle. Hate Carroll and think Seattle fans are phony. 
 

6) GB. Rodgers is a jerk. 

 

1. ***** KC

What I am saying is what my father told me a long time ago. You root for who put you out, in this case now the team that put them out, because if you lose to the eventual winner then you obviously had some play, some swagger. If you lose to the team that lost to the team that lost to the champs, then you are looking at the rear end of the losers and not the winners. At that point you are just some chump at the back of the pack.

I'll be rooting for the Chiefs.    First real game I can remember watching was the Xmas day playoff game against the Dolphins,     Was of fan on that team and the their players---Willie Lanier, Otis Taylor,, Podalak, Buchanon, Dawson, etc,  consider the Chiefs my second favorite team.


Can’t say the Chiefs are my second favorite team or not,  but I am totally on board with that nostalgia. Rooted like hell as a kid for the Chiefs to best the Vikings in SBIII and legitimize the AFL. Absolutely loved those Stram-led teams with all those players you mentioned,  especially Otis Taylor. Remember when he kicked big Ben Davidson’s ass on Monday Night Football? Loved little Nolan Smith as well.

How many Super Bowls have they already won:

 

5 - San Francisco 

4 - Green Bay 

1 - Kansas City

0 - Tennessee 

 

I kind of want San Francisco to get to 6 so the pats 6 win club is bigger and the QB they ditched has success the year Brady fades.

Can't route for Tennessee, need the 0 win club to stay as it is until the Bills win one

49ers all the way.

 

2nd is the Titans, they define the word ‘meh’. Don’t like them, don’t hate them, don’t care.

 

3rd is the Packers. I find their fanbase to be extremely obnoxious.

 

4th and last is the Chiefs. I have no respect for any team with a-holes in the stands doing the tomahawk chop and chant all game.

If the AFC wins the SB this year, the AFC and NFC (and AFL/NFL) will be tied with 27 SB wins apiece.

Somehow, that seems a fitting thing for KC to do.

I used that logic in '00 because I knew the Titans and us were the two best teams in the AFC.  Anybody who watched this latest WC game knew we were better than the Texans and it was just a comedy or mental lapses by the players, coaching staff, and officials that lost us that game.  We're viewed around the league as an up and coming team no matter who wins the SB.

Not displeased at all that the hole in the chin and the Texans team lost. To watched him go from gleeful celebrating to a depressed funk was almost as good as watching Belichek getting "Belicheked" by Vrabel.... Sometimes there is justice.

Chiefs all the way for me. I love Mahomes' game, and more importantly, if the AFC wins, they'll be tied 27-27 with the NFC (the fact that I care about that is pathetic, I know). I don't hate the Niners and won't be surprised if they win it all.

I can agree with that, which is why I am for the Titans/Chefs. It makes us look better.

I used to live in KC, have may friends there, and since they haven't been to the show in fifty years or so I'll root for them. I like it that they are one of the original AFL teams, too.

Exactly. Someone here finally gets it. Chiefs fans are classless. This is my kind of thread ***** the chiefs.

Since Baltimore has been eliminated, I want San Francisco to win it all.  I like John Lynch and how he built the team from the lines out.

I do too but prefer KC just because I'm not a Richard Sherman fan.
