Default Biggest bandwagon team in the NFL?

Had a discussion with a few family members and friends over Christmas dinner about who's the biggest bandwagon team in the NFL. A friend of mine argued that Denver is on top because of Tebow and Manning. I argued that the Pats are the biggest bandwagon team in the league because of all the non-football fans I see sporting their gear. Most of the Pats fans I know couldn't name more than 2-3 players on the team and admit to not watching much NFL football. What to you think?

I'd add the Packers as well. Maybe Raiders.

And biggest group of ex-cons. I'd bet that 1/4th of the Raider fan base is sporting the teardrop tattoo.

If it is based on the retard mentality, this is the group. The thugs like the team look but have no clue how bad this team has been for 10 years. It is basically stating to everyone, "I have no clue how ****ty this team is but look how cool the colors look on me!" You can basically sell a JaMarcus Russell jersey for way more than anyone else can sell their ****tiest player jersey by far. No Chargers fan would wear a Leaf jersey.

Cowboys and it's not even close.

There are of course hardcore cowboys fans, but they have the largest bandwagon fanbase that has no clue about anything.

Perfect example was I saw something on another message board where a guy said "David Carr is my hero!" after Brandon Carr picked off Big Ben and sealed that game basically.

An hour later "David Carr" was trending on twitter. I'm sure the former Houston QB is loving the attention .

They have a lot of fans who do it just for attention, with the most existing in the DC MD VA areas. We call them NBD (Never Been to Dallas) Cowboys fans.

Steelers are probably 2nd, but they also have way more true fans than the Cowboys.

Edit: I do hear quite a bit though that RGIII has a lot of these bandwagon cowboys "fans" in Texas and in DMV area torn and jumping off the bandwagon. Guess it's always about how to best get attention with these types.

Right now it's the Seahawks. Outside of them it's the Pats and Steelers, as has been for the last decade. Not seen a ton of Cowboy ones, but given the $ that team rakes in, it has to be true.

Bandwagon fans usually go to cities that only support their teams when they are good.

Pats, Cowboys, Packers, Steelers ALWAYS have fans, they are opposite of bandwagon.

The most bandwagon fans I think of it Atlanta. That goes for the Falcons, Braves and Hawks. They only support their teams when they are winning.

In that case I nominate the Chargers fans.

Steeler fans disappear when they suck. And I agree about patriots fans.

By far. This group of fans didn't sell out their game vs the 1st place Bengals after they just beat the Chiefs on the road. This group of fans had to have an extension TWICE to sell out their home playoff game! One was their first home playoff game in ions yet the threat of drizzle for that game and the Jets game meant they were too much of a p***Y crowd to attend (and we b****ed about Packers not selling out for minus 14 degrees weather).

Ask any Broncos fan who has gone to Mile High West the differences when they are way up and they attend the game. It is like night and day inside the stadium and of course tailgatting. Oh boy, those morons act like Raiders fans before each game.

Baja, you still gone?

While I agree with your premise, I never saw so many Packers fans until after Favre and Reggie White joined the team and made them into winners.

YOu can say the same about us with Elway. Do the fans stick with the team even when Elway retires or we suck? I say we don't fall in the bandwagon fan claim. Sure we pick up more fans but that happens with every team.
THere are tons of Cowboys, Packers and Steelers fans out there and they have a hard core home base like Denver. When you see the team in a down year is when you can judge. Chargers' fans are one of the worst I have seen. If people say Seahawks, is that because the city and area is getting overly excited based on this year's team? Then if that does make a team a Bandwagon, what do you call Denver in 1977 when people were painting their homes orange?

I lived in Denver between 1970 & 1974, a period that the Broncos had still not had a winning season in its history. Yet, the Broncos were the talk of the town and they were filling the stadium every Home game even though they sucked. This was the time that I became a fan, and remained one when we moved back to So Cal. Did Elway bring more fans to the team? Sure he did, just like Manning is now.

My point with the Packers is that they had bad teams after Lombardi, and before Favre, yet I just don't remember the loyalty of their fans during that period. Maybe I am wrong, but I just think many Packer fans jumped on the wagon after Favre made them relevant again.

I am in Oregon, and before Russell Wilson showed up everyone was a Niners fan. Now they are all Seahawks fans.
