    With the release of the NFL schedule tomorrow and the draft next week, we can discuss all NFL things here.

    1. Maybe little trash talk but keep it respectful.
    2. As long as the thread is friendly the Mods will keep it open.

    I just can't wrap my head around the NFL this early... I mostly ignore the draft and all the summer trades and stuff if I can. My ears don't perk up until the first exhibition games, and really doesn't kick in until the official start of the season.

    I do the same for the NBA too, for that matter... don't care and tune out in the off-season... but love when the next season gets started.

    I float around. I am a Panthers fan... but they haven't given us a lot to root for in a while.

    I follow football differently since before NC got their team, there was no clear choice to root for... so I gravitated towards personalities that I liked. I was a 49ers fan with Joe Montana and Steve Young. I became a Chiefs fan for a bit when Joe went there. I was a Eagles fan when they had Randall Cunningham and much of the McNabb early years.

    I liked the Aikman/Irvin/Smith Cowboys... but kind of soured on them when Jerry Jones "helped" Jimmy Johnson out of town. I liked Tampa until they kicked Tony Dungy to the curb... and then I became a Colts fan for a while. I rooted for the Patriots that first championship... then they beat my Panthers that year and I sort of fell away from the Patriots.

    I don't just clamp onto the teams that win, as you can see... many of the teams I jumped to (Chiefs, Eagles, Colts for quite a while, etc.) didn't win the big game even if they got to it. Oh, and I became a Bills fan during their 4-consecutive trips to the Super Bowl. I was a Cowboys fan at first... but once they got theirs... and the Bills kept going back again and again, I really wanted them to win. It is still such a shame that outside of Buffalo that team is considered by a lot of people to be a failure... but they should be one of the good stories of the NFL modern era. Nobody else has gone that many times in a row, win or lose.

    I've been with the Patriots since the days of Plunkett and Sam "Bam" Cunningham. Going through those dreadful 1-15, 2-14 seasons... Having your coach quit before a playoff game... Having your star wide receiver cut himself up with a knife before your first Super Bowl appearance... They've come a long way.

    But it was Broadway Joe who got me into liking football in the first place when I lived in New York and latched onto the Jets for a few years. Not a Jets fan now, but I have fond memories of the team they were back then.

    Patriots fan here also. I actually didn't get into football until later in life (from Kentucky originally, so basketball since I was a kid ofc). I moved to WV when I was younger. So when it came time to choose an NFL team to root for, I chose the Patriots because of Troy Brown, as he went to the college around my area, Marshall. :) Been one ever since.

    I'd say the Jets got a pretty good deal. Strange contract terms. Nothing guaranteed, essentially a one year deal with multiple team options in subsequent seasons. No risk for TB either it seems. Pretty fair deal, I suppose.

    There was a pretty unique display of how to convert a 4th and 1 on your own side of the field! :)
