Default Other Teams...

So I know we are all die hard fans of the Steelers, that's clear. But do any of you have a second team that you often think, they aren't so bad, I'd root for them say if they made it to the super bowl... or if you're like my boyfriend, he watches any and every football game, and usually roots for the underdog (unless they are playing Pittsburgh) I was just curious to see if we had any other die hards that would from time to time tip their hats to another team and say well played...

I myself grew up in a Washington Redskins household, my father was a huge fan but I think he became one once he moved to the DC area with my mom. They were both from PA. I think a few guys at work were fans is my guess or he want to a game many years ago - cheer for the home team is my guess.

That being said, I do like the Redskins - odd to say that for a team that has such crappy seasons but I do like them... Steelers fan first, but I'll root for the Redskins and I do like the Colts, but it's most due to Mr. Manning.

I used to think I could be supportive of the Ravens but that was long gone, a long time ago, after watching their behavior and the way they bash my favorite team of all time... no dice!

So tell me - do you have a 2nd or third fave?

I love football in general...so I will watch whatever game is on..


I have a second team that I absolutely LOVE....The Colts. I love how they play the game, the attitude of their players, and I highly respect and admire Tony Dungy.

Steelers #1, Colts #2.....for me

GO STEELERS!!

I am about as diehard Steelers as they come, but like SCG87, I am a huge fan of the game and watch NFL football whenever it is on. My family knows that on Sundays and Monday nights - don't look at me, don't talk to me, don't come over and don't call me - I'm zombied into my football!

When Jim Kelly was QB'ing the Bills, they were my adopted "second team" but since he retired, I don't follow the Bills that much anymore. If the Cards weren't playing us in the SB, I'd be rooting for them, as I've always loved Kurt Warner and have developed a tremendous amount of respect for Fitz. Other than those 2 teams and for the reasons I've stated, it's PITTSBURGH STEELERS for me!

I cheer for other teams based on the schedule or certain players/coaches but to be honest with you, if the Steelers don't win - it doesn't matter what the other teams do on gameday.

I'm happy to hear this - I was worried it might get a bad response, since we are all die hard fans :)

"Sunday and Monday nights- don't look at me, don't talk to me, don't come over and don't call me " LOL...That sounds EXACTLY like me. My sister came over last Sunday(during the RATS game)...came into my bedroom...saw me sitting in front of my puter...tv TURNED UP FULL BLAST...watching my beloved Steelers...and she commented "Oh, nevermind, you're no good now " lol....Turned around and left the room ...she knows me SOOOOOOO WELL

Yeah, I could understand why you would think that way. I know a lot of fans are just fans of their team. I am a FOOTBALL fan, first and foremost..a real fan of the game. I have always loved watching it since I was little(my dad got me into it...one of the many things I love him for...he passed away in '87, a week before I graduated from high school). Anyways, I follow football from high school to the pros. It is such a GREAT game!

GO STEELERS!!

I like certain players through out the league(Chad Pennington,Jeremy Shockey, A.J. Hawk) But its Steelers all the way for me. I guess if I had to say I had a second team it would be Caroina. Kevin Greene was my favorite player and when he went down there I kinda followed them for some time and occasionally still do. If they are on ill root for em. The Steelers are my wife and the Panthers are my mistress.

i love rooting for Pennsylvania teams. so, i'm going with the Eagles. McNabb gets a bad rep and Andy Reid is a bit of a bum, but if the Steelers already played or they have their bye week, my attention is on the Eagles.

so, i have an AFC team and and NFC team to root for...and they are both from the Commonwealth. =)

That's a great way to think about it! I sort of pick some of the teams I like and dislike based on players... I am not a fan of the Cowboys at ALL - most of that comes from the Redskins household, and the fans I know that root for them, but it boils down to the players the most... I can't stand T.O. - take me back to the years of Emmitt and Troy its a bit of a different story... but I still wasn't a fan.
