AAAWWEEE COME ON YOU KNOW YOU WANT TOO! I'm now rooting for The Seahawks to make it to the Superbowl.

If the Seahawks make the SB then I'll root for them. I'm an NFC fan after all so I have no choice at that point.

The Seahawks are the football equivalent of the Cubs. I enjoy rooting against them. "We want the ball and we're gonna score!", is one of my favorite football memories.

Seahawks are the only team in the NFL with a mascot that doesn't exist. (There's no such thing as a seahawk). That is the only thing about them that is unique. They stole the 12th man thing from Texas A&M. (The Aggies have been using that since 1922). They stole Beast Mode from the Milwaukee Brewers. They even changed their uniforms to resemble the Oregon Ducks. Pete Carroll is the kind of guy that runs up the score and laughs at the opposition. Rooting against them just feels gooooooood.

Seahawk is another name for an Osprey.

Or the Buffalo Bills. The Buffalo Bills name is just a play on Buffalo Bill from the wild west. Back in the 30s and 40s, the minor league baseball team, the hockey team and the football team here in Buffalo were all called the Buffalo Bisons, and a Bison is just another name for a buffalo, so back in the day there were three sports teams in Buffalo that were basically called the Buffalo Buffalos. Our AAA baseball team is still the Bisons. But in the case of both the Bills and the Sabres, the focus of the team logo involves a Buffalo, the name of the city, not the teams nickname.

The Buffalo Bills were the 2nd best NFL team 4 years in a row. Not many professional sports teams can lay claim to being the 2nd best that many times (even more so in a row) in their specific sport.

Not many teams can choke that many times in a row either. Four consecutive Super Bowl losses is nothing to be proud of and is a meaningless stat. Wake me up when they have a ring.

Given that the Rams is your hometown team, I can understand your feelings toward the Seahawks. But picking on the mascot...

And just want to remind people that the Seahawks beat 3 of their possible opponents in further rounds in the regular season. OK, against GB and NE it was a little too close for comfort, but hey, a win is a win.

Whatever. I am proud to be a Buffalonian. You are not obviously.

You are suffering a delusional mix up. That is definitely not Pete Carroll. In fact just the opposite. However, you've uncannily described Jim Harbaugh exactly to the tee! He was that way in college and is that way in the pros without any change.

No, I am not proud to be in the home town of a dysfunctional football organization that has no direction and has been an utter failure and embarrassment for the past 13 years. I am not proud to be the laughing stock of the NFL. I am not proud of 4 consecutive Super Bowl losses in the early 90s being led by a quarterback who never even wanted to play here to begin with. I am not proud that by starting out last season with a whole three wins in a row, the team is featured on the cover of SI. That right there speaks volumes of the expectations of this franchise. I would not be totally opposed to saying bye bye to the Bills and have them head off to Toronto or LA when the new lease agreement expires, if they still want a new stadium on the waterfront and want tax payers to foot the bill. No one wants to come here and play. Only reason Mario Williams is here is because no other team would pay the guy so much for doing so little. The current Buffalo Bills roster is basically a group of guys that no other team wants. Ryan Fitzmagic basically said that himself in not so many words after Gailey got fired last week. Yep, lots to be proud of right there. And as far as the city itself, I am so proud to live so close to the what Forbes listed as the sixth most dangerous city in America.

I have no problems watching Harbaugh lose, either.
