Just curious as to who people thought was their most hated NFL team. For me it's easy, The Chicago Bears without question. I hate Jay Cutler, Lovie Smith annoys me, and I despise their fans.
OT: Most hated NFL teams
Hands down...Also starting to despise the Packers recently.
They are master choke artists and i dont know how they became "americas team". That always pissed me off
Cmon guys show some live for my Cowboys, only team to beat the 49ers
Yep, Dallas for sure. "America's team" my ass.
The Jets and Giants fans have been getting on my nerves lately. Fans who think their teams have great QBs when they are both pretty average.
As a NY Giants fan, who cares what your opinion is. Pretty Average team ?. When was the last time your dumbass team made the Superbowl & won it. ?
Thought So. !
Better than Lions. Case DEFINITELY... rested.
What makes you think he is a Lions fan? I don't think the Lions can match anyone in "recent success."
You left out the part where you make your case though.
Oh, wait, you always do that.
You should really stop talking. After that performance, as a giants fan,im not opening my mouth.
I was referring to the QBs not the teams. Manning is average, Sanchez is below average. And I don't actually have a team, really couldn't care less for pro football outside of Michigan players.
Eli Manning is awful. Been living off his last name for years. He was the Trent Dilfer of that SB run. Just sayin
Really ? He's awful ? Super bowl MVP buddy.That was one of the most incredible runs through the playoffs in NFL history. Eli took a 10-6 wildcard team through tampa bay on the road,Dallas on the road, Green Bay on the road, and against the "unbeatable" patriots with the best QB in the game and beat them.I would not respond to this.
I'm a Giants fan, I apologize on behalf of the fanbase for the asshat Giants fan that commented above.
Eli was slightly above average the last couple years and has been well above average this year. Coming into this year I believe he had the 8th best rating of starting QB's over the last couple years, this year he has the 5th best.
Is he elite? Depends how you define elite:
All time great: NO!
Top 5 this year: Yes!
Side note: After having posted this I fully expect Eli to lay a giant egg on national TV tonight thus undermining my point.
Eli plays his best football in the 4th quarter when his team needs him the most. Also, he doesn't miss starts. He is durable and he has time and time again come through in the clutch. Just based on his stats he is slightly above average. Adding in his intangibles, he is even more above average.
That being said, I'm not unreasonable in my opinion of him. He's not an all time great, but I believe over half of the teams in the NFL would trade their current starting QB for him given the opportunity.
As someone who picked up Eli late in my fantasy draft im happily surprised with the results, and I agree with how you defined him. I do believe he is in the conversation for top 5 QB's in the league. After Brady, Brees, Rodgers, P Manning(when healthy) the talent gets watered down a bit, I think Eli, Roethlisberger, and Vick are in that second tier.
Also most hated team is probably the Minnesota Vikings, after years and years of the horrors plagued by the metrodome im enjoying their demise.
Followed closely in recent years by the Jets.
The Steelers also have a special place in hell, mostly because you can't ever get away from their fans without fleeing the country.
I have a skewed perspective because i go to school in pittsburg but i can stand listening to these damn yinzers talking about their beloved Stillers
Though I am also a Ravens fan (from Baltimore), so that might have something to do with it as well.
Yes, ageed. By far the Steelers. Living in western pa is the worst during football season. Their fans are the absolute worst.
Steeler Nation might be the greatest fanbase in all of professional sport. Bittersweet to see Michigan borrow the great tradition seen below...
Because my wife is from Chicago and I (the SE Michigan native) am still pissed about last week.
The Giants. and every other team from New York.
And the Eagles; only because Hugh Douglass is a new low in ESPN's history of awful "journalists."
... and because I will never forgive Mike Vick.
Go Redskins, even though Graham Gano should not be an NFL kicker.
Redskins have prove themselves to be thugs time and time again. Albert Hainesworth anyone? The prototypical skins player.
You're joking right...
Skins are thugs? I'm sorry but there is no comparison to the Bengals. Our ownership is awful and Haynesworth was the world's worse signing. That doesn't make them thugs.
Packers. Ever since I was a little kid I hated the Packers.
No fan base in the history of sports can talk it up like them and have nothing to back up the talk.
0 Super Bowls and counting Eagles.
I live in TN but hate the Titans with passion
Fuck 'em both.
Great answer. Same to U !
The Lions. Dirty team with the dirtiest player in the league, stupidest, most delusional fan base in the league, and a coach that does that stupid fist pump thing when they win.
This won't end well.
You hate the Lions the most out of any team in the NFL? Dear God.
The Lions > Sommy.
Agreee. Garbage is cleaner than the Lions Defense.... Starting with Mr. Suh.
Their coach is a blowhard, the players are undisciplined and their quarterback is as durable as a set of crystal stemware on a transatlantic flight. And yeah, since Detroit is finally competitive, many fans think they're Super Bowl-bound. Make the playoffs first.
... just makes me so happy. It means we're actually part of the conversation. So, please, hate all you want. It only further reminds me that the Lions are actually decent.
but read your post in the computer voice of Stephen Hawking's speaking device. As a tepid Lion's fan, don't disagree with your observations, but hardly find a team that has served as the league's baby seal for past decade to be the most hate inspiring.
Yeah, fuck that guy for celebrating when his team wins!
Jimmy Clausen and Cam Newton. What a horrible, horrible combination.
And I hate to point this out, but also Armanti Edwards.
Ray Lewis makes my skin crawl. He allegedly stabs a guy and now he is all preachy. I can't stand him.
If the NY Jets played Ohio State, I would be forced to route for a terrorist attack.
Cowboys: America's Choke Artists
Patriots: Mostly because ESPN never shuts up about them. Despite the fact their insanely good defense has degraded and many of their offensive players are in the twilight of their careers.
Vikings: I this unexplainable desire to see Jared Allen get hit by a 2x4.
On a side note, why the hate of the JETS? Rex Ryan is awesome to watch and he makes the uptight league office have seizures on a regular basis. They deserve a pass simply for that. Come on the dude posts foot fetish stuff on Youtube with his with, you know Goddell feels stomach pains everytime he hears the name "Rex Ryan".
It's a team full of divas...not quite as much as last year, but still. Their fans are a pain in the ass and think they're going to the Super Bowl every year just because they had a good showing several years back.
Rex Ryan is Captain Dickhole. I don't find him entertaining; I find him obnoxious. Maybe this is because I read Kissing Suzy Kolber, but I think he's a tool.
I'm going to have to give an honorable mention to the Steelers. Ben Roethlisberger is captain of the asshats, and their defense is a who's who of people I can't stand. If it weren't for Woodley, they wouldn't have a redeeming quality in my eyes.
That Mendenhall is of the opinion that 9/11 was a government conspiracy.
Pats fan so Jets and Giants(Because of the SB)
followed by the Jets (Ryan), Raiders (idiot fans), Ravens (Lewis), and Redskins
Favorite: Broncos, Bears, Chiefs, Patriots
The Vikings deserve 20 years of ineptitude for 2009. Bears fans often act pretty buckeye/sparty-ish. Being a Packer fan from Michigan caused me to sort of have a soft spot for the Lions...up until last year...now I cant wait to see Scheffler tap dance back to the locker room after we beat them on Thursday.
I hated them growing up (they were always the team I deleted on any game when I made my own team). Then I lived in MD for 4 years and that just increased my hatred of them. Their fans think they are going to win the Super Bowl. Ugh, I am getting ticked off just writing this post.
Hate their fans, hate their coach. Hate most of their team. They do have Zoltan though...so it does mitigate it a little bit.
I'm a big fan of their coach, but just because he seems to be the only NFL coach who understands statistics.
Steelers, Raiders, Colts, Jets, Vikings.
Ravens for the fact that everyone seems to gloss over that Ray Lewis was somehow involved in a murder. And BTW, they never went looking for another assailant in that case. So, as far as the courts are concerned, the victim died of spontaneous stab wounds.
Where do I begin on the Jets...New York team so overblown coverage, Rex Ryan, Mark SanCHIZE (see overblown media coverage)
And, lastly, while I have always been neutral on the Packers, I work with a guy from Wisconsin and he has slowly turned me against the Packers. The final straw was when he insisted that Calvin Johnson was not a top 5 receiver in the NFL and was well below Greg Jennings because "Calvin Johnson is just tall, he doesn't get separation. If he got separation like Greg Jennings, then he'd be a top 5". When I called him on it and asked for his top 5, I got "Andre Johnson, Greg Jennings...uh...Roddy White maybe is tied with Calvin Johnson"
Chain gang green. Jets. They talk too much, just let your play on the field speak for itself. The shtick coming out of Rex Ryan's mouth is just getting too old. Although they have the best special teams coach in the league, I have to admit. Go (Big) Blue
dallas-have always hated them. no idea how anyone outside of texas likes them. jets-the only team that act like they've won multiple championships when they haven't won shit. also mark sanchez will never be an elite qb, he can be a game manager who will win games with good surrounding pieces, he'll never be able to put a team on his shoulders ala brady,manning etc.
Dallas all the time.
Detroit sometimes. They are my favorite team but can be frustrating at times.
.........has been able to do that. I think it stems from having loaded college teams so that they never really work as hard as they need to in order learn how it's done. That, and those roids they do out there kill brain cells.
It's boring as hell and the prime example why college football needs to stay clear of a playoff.
Should all the mgousers who dont like soccer or hockey start going to those threads and begin posting stuff like this?
Pretty much any big market team I would think
#1 Dallas hands down. #2 is LA/OAKLAND Raiders, their fans remind me of Ohio fans.
Pats and Eagles.
.........Cowboys, 49ers, Oakland, Giants, and the Jets equally. But if any of those teams play the Packers, then I'll root for them. I cannot stand the Packers fans which makes me hate the team even though I've liked individual players on the team(Howard, Woodson, Favre, White). They are full of a bunch of neanderthal cavemen now with Hawk and Mathews, and a pansy-ass QB who never did anything til last year, yet he was doing that stupid "championship belt" move like he was one. What an @sshat!
I'm a Bears fan but always rooted for Detroit because of Barry Sanders( The greatest RB of all time, just ahead of Payton). I personally don't think Detroit plays dirty. They just play tough on D, which I like to see. The only negative about Detroit is their coach, who I'd put in the same league as Rodgers from GB.
You don't think blatant hits after the whistle and deliberate facemasking of the QB by the defensive line after the play is dirty? What DO you think is dirty?
The Lions are like those old Raiders teams, man. Except the Lions don't win.
Rodgers didn't do anything till last year? Dude only started for 2 seasons before last year and had a QB rating of 98 or higher in both, not too shabby especially considering he won a super bowl the next year and is currently putting together the greatest season a quarterback has ever had. Dumb comment, read a book.
I was referring to his "championship belt" move he started doing. Up until last season, he hadn't won any kind of championship in major college or pro. To me, it seemed kind of stupid to make a touchdown move based on something you hadn't accomplished yet. Not even a conference or division championship up to that point. I admit that his recent success is pretty amazing, and I didn't even dislike him last year until he started doing that stupid move to celebrate a touchdown.
Whoa...i feel like I just teleported to an espn board
Ahh, the old love/hate relationship.
since I'm a Chicago Bears fan.
I don't hate any team, but I've rooted against Dallas for 30 years. The "America's team" hype isn't anywhere near as obnoxious as it used to be, but the Cowboys still get too much attention.
Definitely the Bears. My mom is a Bears fan and my dislike for them turned into hatred when they hired Rod Marinelli.
I can't stand the cheese head! I think it requires a mullet and buck teeth to properly wear it. The chant "go pack go" is about the most irritating thing a human being can hear. Its so bad it makes me love "roll tide" even after all the comercials. All rolled up in a heavy breathing, mouthfull of food havin, Wisconsin accent. Donchyaknow!! gahhh!
"Never die easy. Why run out of bounds and die easy? Make that linebacker pay. It carries into all facets of your life. It's okay to lose, to die, but don't die without trying, without giving it your best." Walter Payton
I hate them all I'm a redskins and steelers fan.
Lee Corso says "Fuck the Steelers"!
I also dislike the Steelers.
I'll say the Bills. Just because no one else mentioned them and everyone deserves to be hated.
I'd think that most people actually feel kinda sorry for the Bills after losing all of those SBs. Then again, Minnesota lost a bunch and I can't stand them.
According to every Packer fan's status on Facebook, it's the Lions. They scurred
Everyone and their mother in SE michigan that's an osu football fan is also a pittsburgh steelers fan. Douches.
The Jets, with the fire of a thousand burning suns. Also the Ravens, Colts, Cowboys, and Redskins.
The Bears. The Packers and the Vikings. Beyond that I hate the 49ers and their coach.
court of public opnion, across the nation, eagles probably hands-down.
dog-killer plus lebron-like dream team arrogance.
I'd have to say I can't stand the Cowboys or the Steelers.
Dallas and Green Bay, definitely. Either one first. And then Minnesota.
Raiders. Period. End of Story.
