Default Favorite non-Orton QB'd teams

Other than the beloved Broncos (quarterback'd by our beloved, mouth-breathing buddy), who are the teams you're pulling for this season? Why?

Mine are:

Houston - I just can't help myself with Kubes. Plus, they have the offense we should still have - especially with the running game.

Washington - Same concept with Shanahan. I can't help but pull for the guy. I still love how he isn't afraid to go against conventional wisdom (Haynesworth, hiring Chris Simms' BFF, Grossman then Beck then Grossman, etc). I do feel dirty rooting for a team owned by Daniel Snyder, though.

Lions - I just like them. I have a friend that's a really good guy who's a Lions' fan, so that helps. Plus, those fans have really suffered. And lastly, I'm really coming to hate the Packers.

What sayest you?

I don't get how anyone can hate the Packers, the only team actually owned by the fans. Much better than Dan Snyder.

Rooting for the Lions and Bills this year just because they've both sucked for a long time. Rooting for Denver South as always for Kubes.

Oh ya UW is actually pretty fun to watch under Coach Sark. New QB Keith Price is a much better passer than Jake Locker ever was, so they've been fun to watch.

Lovin the Bills and Lions. Nice underdogs, especially the Bills beating Oakland and NE last week, the Lions beating Dallas, and both keep coming from behind.

Nor any other SEC team (or Pac12, or Big 12). He'd probably be stuck at someplace like Perduh. Wait....

Arizona - My #2 behind Denver for personal reasons.

Washington - My #3 and almost painful to watch... both their success and Shanahan in red.

Chicago - My #4, is always fun to watch our former franchise QB win games. And by always fun I mean comparable to a colonoscopy.

Jacksonville - My #5 due to current location. Lovable losers, but now I'm no position to mock any team.

Bills.

Chan Gailey coached for my alma mater Georgia Tech, and you just have to love the Bills willing themselves to become a good team.

Detroit and Buffalo. For the first time I find myself turning on their games. With Sunday ticket they usually play at a different time then us so I can watch them. They are fun to watch.

I have always been a Lions fan, actually even before moving to Denver. I grew up around a guy that played for them briefly and then Barry Sanders became my favorite player. After I moved here, I was just captivated by the Broncos though and Elway (1985).

I pull for the Texans now also, I want to see Kubes do well.

Detroit - I've always had a soft spot since watching Barry as a kid.

Houston - Kubes has always seemed to have a plan and built well. He knew DL was the deficiency in Denver so he's tried to plug that gap in his team. Usually has good guys as well.

Washington - Low on my list but watching Shanny succeed is still nice.

Packers - Rodgers being arrogant might be the biggest personal flaw on their team. They always seem to have non-divas. I also root for Charles Woodson and it was awesome seeing him succeed after going to Oakland when he left UM.

I have to admit, I'm semi mystified over the people clamoring over Houston but so few for Washington.

Mike didn't quit on the Broncos, contributed more to this franchise than Kubiak did (in fact, Kubiak kinda owes his career to him), AND plays in the other conference. WTF kinda logic is going on here?!?!
