If You Couldn't Root For The Houston Texans, Which NFL Team Would You Support?

New, comments

Looking for mindless offseason discussion about theoretical nightmarish scenarios where the Houston Texans don't exist but you still have to pick a team in the NFL to support? Then do I have the post for you on Battle Red Blog!

Yesterday's discussion post was good for some, you know, discussion during these dark days of the NFL offseason, so why not go back to the spreadsheet well once more?

Tonight's query is something that Houston sports fans may be uniquely qualified to answer, thanks to Bud Adams taking the Oilers to Tennessee in 1997.

Assume with me a bleak and miserable alternate universe where the Houston Texans did not exist, but every other NFL franchise does. Suddenly, you don't have a NFL team to support. You, stalwart soul that you are, refuse to give the NFL up entirely. You pledge that you will find a new team to throw far too much time and energy into every Sunday (plus the occasional Thursday and Monday).

Which of the other 31 NFL teams would it be? And why?
