Does anyone else think like I do? When my team's season was over - Philadelphia in my case - I stopped watching football. I haven't watched any of the other games. I won't watch, nor do I have any interest at all, in the Pro Bowl or even the Super Bowl.
My team is the Eagles. I don't give a rat's behind about Seattle or Denver.
My ONLY interest is getting this game finished so that I can look forward to free agency and then the draft in May.

Nope, I love watching the playoffs, especially after New England gets bounced.

You're preaching to the choir OP. I'm a Cleveland Browns fan. I've seen my team relocate, and return 3 years later and in that time have seen 1 playoff appearance (2002 wild card loss to the Steelers) and 1 more winning season (2007 10-6 with a 7-1 home record and still missed the playoffs). In fact the last playoff win for my team was back in January 1995 when they defeated the New England Patriots at home at the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium. And let's not forget the woes the current Browns front office is facing with finding a new coach after their knee-jerk firing of Rob Chudzinski only hours after their final regular season game. Throw in the fact that Roger Godell is toying with the option of removing the extra point, and all of the extra rules being thrown in, and combo it with watching a perennial loser, it really is starting to become unwatchable. However; being that football is my favorite sport. I'll still watch...... For now. Though I don't know for how much longer.

I watch every playoff game every year. Even if it was New England vs. Dallas, I'd never miss the Super Bowl.

I am a Patriots fan, so as tough as last week was, I can not wait until the Superbowl, why? because it is going to be an amazing game, the best offense vs the best defense. Now during the regular season, if my team is not playing, I go on with my life and skip the games for the day or will catch a little bit of a decent game, but I will just wait until the highlights on sportscenter.

This. My Redskins were god awful this year, and the media has been ripping RG3 a new one. But I continue to watch because I love football.

Go Broncos! (my adopted afc team, since I live in Denver now)

Haha, I saw your post on sports hoopla too. I wonder how many others here chat both sites.

I watch regardless, I like football. During the year, I don't watch AFC as much as NFC but enough to follow quite a few teams. Pro Bowl isn't as interesting as it was years ago but I'll watch some of it. I never miss the SB either, may not watch the whole thing but I do watch!

When the Colts were eliminated from the playoffs, I did not watch any football the rest of that day. I was back at it again the next day though.
