Well with all the bickering going on in the Browns thread I figured I would start a fresh one up where everyone can show their allegiance and tell us a little about their fan-hood or team.

I have been a Redskins fan for life, and up until i moved out here i would go to almost every home game. i look forward to this year to see how RGIII adapts to the NFL, although i'm not setting the bar too high. the record doesn't mean that much right now, but progress does. i would be dissapointed if we don't have a top 10 defense this year though and adding that to what will be a strong running game could surprise some people.

i figure between 6-10 and 10-6, but i'll go with 8-8 as my guess, with RGIII breaking almost every Redskins rookie passing record, but not close to Cam Newton numbers.

i'd guess:

3000yds 20 tds 14 ints 55-60% comp and 5 rushing tds

Ravens fan here.  Flacco needs to step up this year.  He says he's the best QB in the league, he needs to prove it.  I think this is our last year to make a run at the title and then we'll need to reload.  Ray and Ed are old and probably already done.  Too bad Suggs is such a moron and tore his achilles in a pick game of basketball.  Still hopeful.

The Super Bowl Champion NY Giants. Of course this team generally does not do well when expectations are high, but with a weak NFC East, we have a shot at breaking that trend.

Born and bred a Packer's fan.  Lived near GB while I was young and have followed ever since.  Parents were at the Ice Bowl and my Grandfather had the team picture posted every year on his bedroom wall.  Passed it onto my daughters who are not only sports followers but also very knowledgeable about the game.

Niners! Anxious to see if Alex Smith can complete passes down field especially with all receivers who signed in the off season.

Ditto. Born and raised in Wisconsin. My wife was born on Super bowl One. Traveled back 2 years ago just to take our daughter to Lambeau. Good times and bad, there is no other team with fans like the Pack......

Born and raised a Giants fan.  An obsessive one.  But I disagree about the weak NFC East.  I think it is as strong as any division in the league.  And our upcoming out of division schedule is a beast.  Ironically we have the toughest upcoming schedule and our vanquished foes from New England have one of the easiest.  But that is OK, we'll be battle-hardened when the playoffs come.  And we came out strong after the 2007 championship until a certain WR who will remain nameless ruined the season by shooting himself.

Do you participate in any NY Giants discussion board?  I do a couple of them.

New England Patriots. AFC Champs + one of the easiest schedules + awesome 2012 additions + very few subtractions from last year = one extremely excited and optimistic fan. :-P

My personal feelings are that Philly and Dallas are overrated and Washington will never be good while Snyder owns the team. Who has a QB in the division (maybe in the whole league) that compares with Eli? Dont worry about the super bowl losers - brady is dropping every year. A few more hits and he will really be pouting on the field.

I really dont do too many other message boards - facebook seems to make a lot of them useless to me.

Obviously a great playoff team, but I think Eli is a flip of the coin--could be 12-4 and win the division or he could throw 25 picks be 8-8 and miss the playoffs.

toughest division in football:

http://blog.syracuse.com/sports/2012/05/post_41.html

and the redskins smoked you twice last year, once when you had everything in the world to play for. and the dan snyder stuff shows you're not paying attention in ashburn, but don't worry plenty of paid talking heads keep rolling off the same drivel completely ignoring that shanny/allen have made every move since they walked through the door.

and eli has never gotten over his "PLAXICO!!!!!!!!!!!!" throw. you know the one. he closes his eyes chucks the ball up and spins around to cower before he gets hit. i just imagine he yells plaxico everytime he does it.

and since your coach got an extension i fully expect your team to lay down and miss the playoffs until he is under real threat of getting fired.

(he had a great season last year, but that won't stop the smack talk)

You're right. The second most passing yards by a QB in a season ever, but he's slipping! I'll take my chances.

Go Cowboys!  Expectations are high this year (just like every year).  I think the east will be competitive this year as I expect the Eagles to have a good season as well.

There is no QB greater in the clutch

OK, now we know that washington fan is as delusional as boston fan, but that's ok - at least you are loyal. Just remember that the skins are the new cardinals of the division.

Passing stats are weak. I hear the same thing from lions fans - it means you have no running game and no defense - you only throw for that many yards when you need to. But I do enjoy the sight of brady crying after being tossed around like a rag doll.

Romo. He gets a lot of shit because his team doesn't do as well as it should, but in terms of QB talent, Romo is there with Eli.

[queue the team accomplishment stats to prove how good Eli is]
