No Redskins ... which football team would I root for? Virginia Tech.

I remember when the Senators left DC for Texas. I rooted for Frank 'Hondo' Howard to smack the long ball, listened to the games on radio while driving from errand to errand, etc. .. then it was gone! I really have not followed baseball since then. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad when the home town Nationals win - but baseball has lost its allure for me. I found other things to do with my time, energy, family, and money (not necessarily in that order). I suppose if the Redskins were not in the DC community, then I would not bother with the NFL at all. I would no longer have a vested interest to root for any NFL team.

I can't imagine being a true fan of any other team other than the Redskins. My Father is from Cleveland, and he first got me interested in watching pro football on a six inch black and white Motorola TV. He was a great fan of the Browns, so I grew up being a Browns fan. We moved to DC in 1951, purchased season tickets, and the rest is history. The Browns at that time were in the NFC east, and when Jim Brown arrived in 1956 they along with the Giants pretty much ruled the division. For a while we had mixed emotions whenever the Browns came to town.

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

There is just something about the Skins that is in my blood. When I was very young my dad was both a Skins and Colts (Baltimore) fan. Networks in Roanoke VA carried both but soon only carried the Skins. By that time I was their fan and they were playing Miami in their first Super Bowl and running around tyher back yard in my Skins helmet (with the "R" logo) and my Larry Brown jersey.
I can't say who I would be a fan of other than my Skins. So I choose no one and would spend more time watching hockey.

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

I like a lot of teams other than Washington. However, if I had to pick one, it would be New Orleans. Having been in the city for a little while, I now root even harder for a team I've always kinda liked.

Others in the running:
Atlanta
Cincy
Green Bay
San Diego

Steelers. Maybe not so much after Cowher, but I like the team now, so they're probably my second fav.


Chargers now, because of LT and Merriman. Thats one sick combination, although I've always hated shotty... and yeah the powder blues are pretty sharp.

Green Bay, but only for Favre... You cant be a football fan and not be a Brett Favre fan. Thats probably the only non-skins jersey I would spend money on.

Panthers they aint a bad team...

Texans. I'm from tx, and hate the cowboys... I never really cared for the oilers as a kid, though... but could see pulling for them to pull themselves from the pit of the AFC cellar.

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

Living here in Nashville, I would be Titans fan. Because I coach middle-School football, I was able to work the Steve McNair QB camps over the several years he played here. While I was there I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Steve McNair, Troy Smith(The Ohio State), and Vince Young. There were other QB's there too, but those three stood out the most. VY is a great guy, and great with kids! We would often talk about his coming to the Titans. He is very humble and great for the Game!

COLTS. Gotta love Peyton and that offense. I enjoy watching them play more than any NFL team over the past 5 years. My dad is also from Indianapolis so it gives me another in. Too bad they can't win or even get to the BIG ONE.

Peyton's allright and an amazing Qb, but I hate a team that concentrates on offense with a horrible defense and cant understand why they cant win a championship.

On that note, I have all the respect in the world for peyton, but Cant Stand Eli. The whole "Im not playin for the chargers" debacle... yeah... there's a guy with football smarts... and he seems like such a little whiney bitch...

The Raiders. I loved watching Gannon tear up defenses back in 2000-02. That, IMO, was the model for west coast offense.

I was really pissed when the Raiders beat us in FedEx last year though. I thought we were a near lock for the playoffs, and after that game, one we obviously should have won, I knew we'd have to win 5 our of our last 6 to get there. Oakland had no business being in that game. Sort of like Minnesota, Tennessee, Tampa Bay, Atlanta, and Philadelphia this year.

I don't like any other team really, but if I wasn't a Skins fan I would be fans of the Chiefs, cuz the colors are somewhat similar

I said in the beginning of the season that Eli was one of the most overrated qb's in sports, I got A LOT of crap for it...but apparently the world has agreed with me.
