I hope you had a good celebration last night! Hope to see you here this upcoming season when our teams go at it! I have baseball to gear up for now. Enjoy your team's SB win!

I like the teams of most of the places I've lived. There is a hierarchy of course to resolve disputes.

Don't weep for me too much, I'm a Lions fan through and through......but I've lived in Phoenix for ten years now and the Cardinals are starting to grow on me.

I can't speak for everyone but in the Southeast it's pretty common to find people who root for various NFL teams that have players from their favorite college team on the roster. Like a lot of Auburn fans who root for the Panthers because of Cam Newton or Tennessee fans who root for the Broncos because of Peyton Manning or Georgia/Georgia Tech fans who root for Detroit because of Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson.

I used to know a huge U of Miami fan who loved the Ravens because of Ray Lewis and Ed Reed among others.

Jets fan here but there are a whole host of teams I enjoy watching in the NFL. I am an NFL game rewind subscriber and I'll typically watch a few games throughout the week. I like the Browns, Colts, Texans, Broncos, Eagles, everyone in the NFC North, New Orleans, Atlanta, Carolina and everyone in the NFC West. The rest, I'm either indifferent to or flat out dislike.

Default 49ers fan

I'm a Niners fan. This has been my home for nearly 25 years. I've been a fan ever since the team drafted Ronnie Lott. I don't care for the Raiders.

The rest of the teams I root for to a lesser extent for various reasons. They include the Bears, Packers, Patriots, and Steelers. I also like watching Seattle, Saints, and Denver (b/c of Manning). I don't like any of the teams in the NFC East. The rest I'm indifferent towards. I generally am indifferent towards teams in cities I have no interest in living in.

Born and raised in DC...thus my screen name

I've lived in Denver for three years now, and Peyton Manning is my favorite QB of all time. So I've adopted the Broncos as my secondary team

Packers fan. Used to like the Niners back when they first got good with Montana and won their first couple of Super Bowls. But after they won a few more Super Bowls their fan base has gotten extremely arrogant and obnoxious -- even though it's now been over 20 years since they won one, they still talk like they've won the last five. Now my second favorite team is whoever is playing the Niners.

Help me understand this.....Thoughts?
Life's short, if you have more than one team, you can be a champion more often.

What's there not to understand?
