For me, it varied. I pulled for the Redskins for a while, I pulled for the 49ers for a while as well when Montana and Young were QBs there. My dad is a big Joe Montana fan, so that helped the fortyniner's cause.

My dad was also a Colts fan from the Unitas days (I nearly got named after Unitas, my dad was in Fort Dix at the time or it woulda happened). So, I pulled for the Colts too, but it was *really* hard to admit that publicly in the 80s.

I started with the Seahawks, Dave Krieg & Curt Warner. I vaguely remember a blue 28 jersey. Then I was whacky over Bo Jackson, had matching Bo & Marcus posters over my bed when I was about 12 or 13. I casually followed the Raiders until we got the team in 93, been Panthers thru and thru ever since.

Only saw one other Colt fan on this thread! jkj (junior member) I am old school and to this day it is very hard to pull for the Indy Colts! The only time I pulled for them is when they play NE.

Johnny U., Berry, etc. Go old Colts. That is why it is easy to pull for the Ravens as the city of Baltimore really deserves to have a good team!

But now....if it is not the ASU Mountaineers, it is the Panthers!

Steelers fan. Pop had season tix when we lived there, this is before three rivers was built and they played all their games at the Panther bowl on the PITT campus.
