    I like the New York Jets because I love New York.
    Most people seem to support the Giants so I thought I'd take the outsiders.
    I also have a soft spot for Newtown from the old Winfield Cup days as they were my Dad's team and the team we beat for our first Grand Final.

    When he sacks a quarterback he then eats him.
    That's why he's so big. Lots of sacks.

    There are 32 teams, so plenty of options. 49ers, Seahawks, Cowboys, Patriots, Chargers, Bronco's, Titans, Jaguars, Miami, Bengals, Bucaneers, Buffalo Bills.

    Depends what you are after, just colors? Location? Name? Success?

    The best team plays out of Lambeau Field and plays under the Australian colours.

    I'd say that is the Arizona Cardinals, closest, I should say.

    San Diego Chargers could be a good team for you.

    I've followed NFL for years and I've never stuck with a side. Players moreso than teams for me.

    I have teams I prefer. None to hate. Great code to watch - it will get you in and there are some fantastic books to get you up to speed with tactics, plays and why they are used / where they came from. There is a wonderful coaching hierarchy that goes along with the sorts of strategies used as well.

    Bo would've been the greatest but he retired after only 3 seasons due to injury, oj smashed so many rushing records, and till this day, no one has ever rushed for over 2000 in 12 games, prob never be broken that feat
