    Chargers -my favorite city , my favorite team , started with the drafting of L.T back in the day.

    Ravens - Always been in love with their D since the start of Ray Lewis /Ed reed career .

    Lions - i got some family in michigan , got me curious about the Lions plus they had Barry F'n Sanders .

    Bears - been a Brian Urlacher fan since his career started.

    Falcons - started watching them for the Mike Vick experience , just continued to pay attention through Matt Ryan era.

    Rams - Started watching them when Kurt Warner started "The greatest show on turf " , those offenses were incredible to watch .

    in this order...

    Redskins - lived for 10 years

    Texans - hometown.

    Cowboys - mix of lifelong cowboys/dallas hatred and redskins rivalry

    Eagles - mix of proximity to dc, fan of donovan mcnabb, and in same division as redskins...my interest in them has waned since the end of the mcnabb era

    Texas - because my blood bleeds orange
    Rockets - because of Moses and Dream
    Titans - because they used to be the Oilers
    Texans - because of family that live in Houston and you guys
    Browns - McCoy
    Philly - Young
    Patriots - Brady is ridiculous

    I moved to San Diego in 2002 (the same year the Texans started playing). Got season tickets to the Chargers and was as big a fan of them as I was the Texans as Houston will always be "home" for me.

    About 2-3 years ago, I came to the firm belief that the Chargers will be in Los Angeles within the next decade and I absolutely refuse to root for any Los Angeles team, in any sport, under any circumstances. As such the Texans have fully become "my team". I still root for the Chargers, but only if it doesn't hurt the Texans and as soon as they move to LA, I will root for them to lose every game just like I do for the Titans.

    I'll stick with the NFL:

    Texans: Lived here 25 years

    Steelers: My team since I was 9 years-old. Did not grow up in or near Pittsburgh.

    Packers: HUGE Aaron Rodgers fan. The story of his falling draft stock, non-relationship with Brett Favre, humble demeanor and ascension to best QB in the NFL makes him my favorite player in the NFL.

    Bears: Saw them every Sunday growing up in Indy and I still remember 1985. That season was pure magic except for the Dolphins loss.

    Cowboys: Didn't like 'em under Landy, don't like 'em under Jerry.

    Colts: They snuck out of Baltimore just when I was leaving town. Never really bonded with the team. I think the world of Peyton Manning.

    Texans

    of all teams, i overwhelmingly follow the texans...no one else is really a close second, even though i follow the league generally.

    i like the Saints...but the attention i pay to them is nowhere near what it is with the Texans.
