    The Jaguars I don't get. They're not the first team in Florida. Heck, they're not the second team in Florida. And some might argue, well, that corner of Florida is different from Tampa or Miami. OK, but, like, not every streetcorner gets a football team. Stockton probably feels it's different than SF or Oakland but we don't give them a team. How does one live in Jacksonville and not have formed some basic attachment to Miami or TB by the team the Jaguars came about? Or Atlanta? Or one of the myriad of college football teams in that area? And then it's not like they have a great history during their existence to pull someone over. At least the Panthers in that time made it to a couple SBs. The Jaguars had, what, a fleeting appearance in the AFC CCG? What exactly gets one exciting to wake up in the morning and root for Jacksonville? Do you have to literally be the mayor of Jacksonville and have this be your city's claim to greatness?
    I once met someone whose uncle was one of the original minority owners of the Jaguars. So, I guess he had a reason. LOL (When he was a kid, he sometimes got to sit in the owners' box.)

    Chargers get honorable mention. You had some claim to uniqueness by being in San Diego, but threw that away to be the crap team in LA, where roughly/oddly only 12 people care about pro-football.
    Especially since the Chargers started out in LA in their original year in the AFL.

        Given the love for Michigan around here, you should at least recognize the person who won the most significant game in recent history for Michigan.

          • Ours jerseys are survivable tonight anyway. The Racists' jerseys are actually VERY nice. (It's really the helmets -- best in the NFL.)

                    9 to 9 at half (I suppose) and only one 3 point FG of those 18 points. That's scoring the odd way.

                      And this comment almost applies multiple times for the second half.

                        • Antonio Brown gets three games for violating C-19 directives.

                          And yet, Aaron Rodgers is still playing.

                            It's the Rogers rate. Works better than State Farm does.

                              • Antonio Brown got caught using a fake vaccination card, that’s why he got three games.
