As the NFL season approaches, fans across the country are beginning to obsessively evaluate their team’s strengths and weaknesses. Diehards from Seattle, San Francisco, and Indianapolis certainly have a more positive outlook than the poor souls living in Tampa Bay, Minnesota, or Oakland, but the passion for the game remains the same.
Reddit user TheVetNoob tapped into that passion and recently posted the thread “What does your team do better than any other team?” It prompted some pretty awesome and authentic responses from fans around the country.
The Bucs went 4-12 in an sad 2013 campaign. Tampa fans are hoping that new head coach Lovie Smith gives them something to be proud of this season.
CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson are a pretty good running back duo. But unfortunately for Bills fans, the position lost a lot of value over the years as the NFL has shifted to a QB-driven league.
“Riverboat Ron’s” crew converted 10 of 13 4th down attempts last year (76.9%), which was good for third best in the NFL.
A thread from 5 years ago might have said “Off-season arrests.”
Browns fans are hoping Johnny Manziel, or perhaps Brian Hoyer, can lead Cleveland out of the “Factory of Sadness” era.
This one is deadly accurate- unlike Tony Romo’s 4th quarter passing attempts.
Denver’s 43-8 loss at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks last season was the franchise’s second worst Super Bowl loss ever. The Broncos have been knocked out of the Big Game 5 times.
Peyton Manning and Andrew Luck were obviously great selections. But Jeff George? Not so much.
Yup, that’s about it, Jaguars fans.
Poor Adrian Peterson. The 7-year back deserves better than Christina Ponder, Matt Cassel, and Josh Freeman.
Eli Manning has thrown 83 interceptions over the last four seasons. The G-Men also gave away 15 fumbles last season, which was tied for second worst in the league.
Oakland has gone 5-11 or worse in 9 of the last 11 seasons. Just reach .500, baby.
Pittsburgh has won 6 of the 8 super bowls that it’s played in.
I think that most NFL fans would agree that the powder blues are some of the best throwback uni’s in the NFL.
From 1988-90, the Niners won a record 18 straight regular season road games.
Robert Quinn and the Rams recorded a total of 53 team sacks last year, which was third in the NFL.
Titans record the last 5 years: 7-9, 6-10, 9-7, 6-10, 8-8. Extremely mediocre.
Daniel Snyder’s outright refusal to change the team’s name has not pleased Congress. Snyder doesn’t care.
“HEY RODGERS! DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHECK!”
Drew Brees can make any average receiver look great. Devery Henderson and Robert Meachem are two clear examples.
Not 100% sure on this one, but I’m guessing that Tom Brady is the only player in the NFL appearing in UGG ads.
Kansas City has some awesome fans, too. Hope that they’ve recovered from last year’s crushing 45-44 defeat to Andrew Luck and the Colts.
Example: ““I’m the best corner in the game! When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that’s the result you’re going to get. Don’t you ever talk about me. Don’t you open your mouth about the best, or I’ll shut it for you real quick” – Richard Sherman.
A lot of fans feel this way about their team.
With Geno Smith as QB, Jets fans could be drowning their sorrows all season.
“Lose to the Houston Texans.”
Crazy and random statistic: the Dolphins are 0-7 all time against the Houston Texans.
Spot on. Arizona statistically had the best rushing defense in the NFL last season.
Apparently the Falcons and Texans don’t do anything better than the rest of the NFL, as they have not yet been represented in the thread.
