The New York thing was definitely a factor, since I moved here when I was 9. The defense and Tiki Barber brought me in to it though. I actually watched a Jet game first but never liked them.

I actually didnt like Eli at all until the first SB win. I wanted Brady Quinn so bad and for us to dump Eli on the Dolphins (were rumored to be interested). Laughing

You aren't alone. I thought he would be a safer pick than one of the QBs. Hence, why I don't have a front office job with the Giants.

Going to date myself a bit here...but I was a kid watching the Superbowl at a big Superbowl party, under the food table right in front of a giant projection TV when the Bills kicker barely missed the winning FG. If they had made it I'd probably be a Bills fan. Thank god he missed. Shocked Laughing

I couldn't even imagine how horrible we would be right now if that happened. Probably have Colt Mccoy as our QB or something. Laughing


Pssst...I wanted Brady Quinn in 2007. Laughing


Really I was all for Eli. I remember being so pissed when SD picked him. And then we picked that arrogant prick Rivers. And then Berman was hinting that the trade was already in place and I was just dying for them to announce it. I wasn't happy we gave away the farm but I DID NOT want Rivers. I would have settled for Ben though.

I remember being happy when we traded for him, but was Rivers a prick even back then?

I just couldn't stand him. Dude just looks like a prick. I swear if he was a Giant I would HATE him and be campaigning against him all the time Laughing

Kerry Collins was something of a DB when we got him. What'd you think of him?

In this forum Peyton is the other Manning Wink

Apparently Rivers has like 5 daughters and goes around preaching abstinence. Who knew?

In 7th grade my family didnt even have a PC. I feel old....


When i was in the 7th grade, the Jets weren't even around yet. I've been a jet fan since Namath came into the league but I still root for the giants against the other 30 teams. I think it's a local issue for me. I could never see myself rooting for a team outside of ny/nj. Even when I retire to Florida I'll still be cheering on the green and blue

By the way I loved your draft, especially McCants, Randle, and Mosely

Yeah I've heard Philip Rivers is quite the role model off the field and I like that he teaches that kind of stuff. That's why I wouldn't say I hate Rivers, but on the field he definitely resembles the typical jock.

When I was too young to know what football was, I remember a crowd of my family members (uncles, cousins, siblings, etc...) yelling and getting excited over some team in blue on the telly...

So from then on, I decided to join in on the commotion and never turned back. Became a fan for life. Guess you can say I was born into it.

*Actually started the same way for me with the Yankees too.
