    Current Playoffs - who do you root for?

    Since the Jets are out of the playoffs, who do you root for and against. Why

    Me:
    - Against the Ravens b/c my grandpa was a lifelong Browns fan and felt betrayed by Modell's move to Baltimore.
    - Against the Patsy b/c ...
    - Against the Redskins b/c of their racist name

  2. #2
    Seahawks, or anyone playing New England

    If it was the Whiteskins would you still think it was racist?.. The indians don't mind it.. In the NFC I would like to see either the Seahawks or Skins make it.. I would like to see the Colts make it but it will be either Brady or Manning from the AFC.. For the Bowl the Skins or Seahawks would be nice..

    Denver or whatever team the Pats are playing

    Colts because we crushed them at home. I had tickets for that game and thought we were back on track. If they go all the way I would feel like our team still has some life.

    1) The Native Americans do mind;
    2) I am not white, but I wouldn't appreciate the Whiteskins either.
    3) I really wouldn't appreciate the Wetbacks or the Beaners.

    Most native americans do not find the name offensive.The University of Pennsylvania just did a study on it a few months ago and found that over 85% of native americans do NOT find the name offensive. However, they do hate the drunk indian on the Cleveland Indians logo.. BTW Caucasians on a world scale are a minority if someone called me a a Whiteskin I could care less..

    Nope.. Redneck is a term used for hard working farmers that were out in the sun all day.. And since I do work outside the term would be appropriate..

    Absolutely. If you know anything about history Redskin is the equivalent of calling a Black person the n-word or Jewish person the k-word. It's a completely over the top derogatory term that is even worse than saying Indian or Chief. At least the Florida St team is named after an actual tribe.

    Want to call me the pc police go ahead? What's right is right.

    The term "Redneck" was actually originally used to describe soldiers from the British Army during the Revolutionary War because of their uniforms. Over the centuries the application and meaning of evolved.

    I root for the Patriots as there's a 15% chance that Belichick and Brady decide to go out on top and retire in three weeks.

    Damn, I know you always like to go against the grain but this is pushing it...I would like to see the Patsies get trampled and embarrassed...I don't have any other rooting interest besides that

    Packers vs Ravens. I have futures on both these teams......Packers +350 to make it to the superbowl. Ravens +925 to make it to the superbowl

    I dislike them and it doesn't bother me when they lose but right now they are the roadblock for the past 12 years and since we can't stop them we just need them to dissolve naturally.

    B&B have been chasing that next ring for 9 years; there's a chance that if they get it, they'll disappear forever. Brady is pushing 40, would have nothing else to prove, and he'd escape the game with his pretty face and sharp brain intact. Bellichick is 61 and would start his retirement the moment Brady steps down.

    Long-shot, but it's the best thing a Jets fan can root for methinks. Go Pats.

    I don't root against anyone unless they've eliminated the Jets or they're the Dolphins or Giants.

    I'm rooting for the winner of Colts-Ravens and the Packers. Colts for Pagano, Ravens for Lewis and Reed. Green Bay just because I've always loved their logo and uniforms, and I'm a fan of Mr. Discount Doublecheck, like Favre before him.

    I love seeing the underdogs win, and when they're in the playoffs and the Jets aren't, I'm always pulling for Philadelphia first and foremost. Most of my blood family are Eagle fans and I attended a handful of Eagle games alongside Jet games when I was a kid.

    Aaron Rodgers great QB and seems like a real decent human being.
