Here in Jax you have a team (and an owner) fighting for their survival. An owner that won't even listen to LA when they call. That when they were handing out franchises was told a franchise was his.... all he had to do was turn his back on Jacksonville, and he refused.
We have a GM that says character matters, and has rid his team of the bad guys.
Just one thing... you have to like rooting for the underdog.
Kind of a different situation for me.
I moved to Parkersburg, WV 8 years ago (hence the name). Growing up in Kentucky, I was always closer to the Reds and Bengals which made them my teams. Now in WV, the closest teams by proximity are the Steelers and Browns, one of which I have grown to hate and the other isn't much of an improvement over the Bengals.
I've also flirted with the idea of becoming a Colts fan, but I can't stand the Mannings either.
I'll stick with the Bengals. I'll probably quit following the NFL in general before I switch teams.
