Since I've always been a "hometown team" kind of guy I guess I would have to root for the Panthers. Maybe a Ravens fan but I think here in SW VA we would receive the Panthers games as a local game.

I think I would be a Steeler fan because alot of my good friends live in PA and are Steeler fans. Good times on Sunday's at the Steeler fan club and drinking Iron City draft while watching the games.

That's tough. The Colts left Baltimore when I was young...or I would have said them. But I couldn't root for the Ravens...no f'ing way.

I followed the Oilers and Bills growing up. There was just something about watching Warren Moon and Jim Kelly move their offenses up and down the field. The Bengals too, as I have family that lives outside Cincy. And Boomer went to Maryland, so that made it easy to watch them.

So I guess I'd say "Who dey! Who dey! Who dey think gonna beat dem Bengals?"

"Nobody!"

Probaboly the Bills because they are the hometown team. I used to HATE them as a kid, but I root for them now because it tends to be a lot more fun during football season when they are good.

Re: If you weren't a Skins fan, who would you be a fan of and why??

I used to sort of like the ravens, especially since my old college roommate loved them so I would see most of their games but I really can't stand them anymore. At first i figured that since they're from Maryland and they play in AFC that it was okay to like them unless they were playing the Skins. But, ever since they won the super bowl their fans have become unbearable to the point that I can't stand the entire team (like the eagles).

Now, I know it's kind of bandwagon-ish but I like the Chargers. LT is such an amazing talent that I think it's hard not to root for him, and I've followed Shawn Merriman since his days at UMD (and I still will even after the whole roids thing). So I guess the Chargers are my second favorite team now, but every other team is so far removed from the Skins that they barely register.

Probably the Steelers, because they have always run their franchise the right way in my opinion. They are fiscally prudent with the cap, and they have used the draft wisely to bring in many of their core guys. They don't overspend to keep their own, and more importantly they don't overspend to bring in outsiders. Their fanbase is one of the broadest and most knowledgable. Lastly, their next head coach may be former Hog Russ Grimm.

I love watching Merriman too - he's the second coming of the original LT. And to think he could've been a Redskin

Bears. Cold weather, grass, great uniforms, great Defense and I really like their coatch and the attitude he brings to the team.

Probably the Packers or the Chargers.

The Pack because I love Favre, love Lambeau, and I love their rich history with Lombardi, Starr, etc. They just always have that old school feel.

The Chargers because as a kid way before I was a Skins fan I had this Chargers shirt that I loved, I think I had my class picture in 1st or 2nd grade in that shirt, I'll have to look for it sometime. When Humphries was their QB and took them to the Super Bowl I was a closet fan... plus I just like their uniforms, especially the powder blues with the white helmets. Best uniforms in all of sports IMO.

I have to say Saints - for all that has happened to those people down there they deserve something. Plus my wife is from Alabama and that is her favorite team so I root for them as well.

It's a horrible thought...but probably Philly since I was born and raised there and most of my family and friends are eagles fans.

I'd have to go with the Chiefs. I've never been there, but it looks like a great atmosphere at Arrowhead. They always have a great rushing attack (more appealing to me than qb's).

Since I live in a town with a lot of transplants from other cities, I've been around a lot of fans from other teams and Chiefs fans seem passionate yet down to earth.

San Diego would be second. I spend a lot of time there. Small city, perfect weather, makes for a great experience.

I honestly can't imagine being a fan for any other team like I am for the Skins. I don't even watch other sports on a regular basis.
