I hope San Antonio gets one.

Jags could relocate and stay in South 

 

What would SA team be called?


I would love if my old hometown got an NFL team, would instantly become my second favorite team! The Raiders supposedly were taking a look at moving there before the Vegas deal happened. I think the state could support another team, the area is growing exponentially. As for a name, San Antonio actually used to have a semi pro football team called the San Antonio Toros and they had a pretty big following, would be cool if they brought that name back!

Something like the 

San Antonio Scorpions

Oh I get it a new name would be good, but I think for nostalgic purposes a lot of people would think the San Antonio Toros would be cool, IMO.
 

Those are also great suggestions, although I remember quite vividly being stung by scorpions when I was a kid and unleashing my fury on everyone that I saw after that, lol. Them and those huge fire ants:flaming:

 

San Antonio is a big military town, and has the Alamo, the name could be influenced by that as well. I’ve heard the Brigadiers thrown out there too. Something like this with San Antonio instead would be cool, again,  IMO......

or this pluralized....

The Armadillos?? Although it may not strike much fear into opponents because they are a lot like opossums and are scared of everything and not very smart LOL!

I wonder if St. Louis will ever get another chance at an NFL team?

 

There's not many viable places in my mind that would make sense geographically.  I can see the Bills in Toronto or Montreal be successful.

 

I agree San Antonio isn't a good fit for several reans already stated.

I'll stir the pot a little. Is Indy a very secure host for the Colts into the future? How long do stadiums appease owners these days? 20 years or so (absurd btw)? LOS is 12 years old? 

I'm making no predictions beyond this will be an issue again and the threat of the team leaving will probably be on the table, especially if Jim isn't calling the shots for whatever reason.

 

(If there's some quiet news about this outlining why my take is bogus, let me know)

The colts in Montréal would be fine with me.  Just 6 hour drive from boston!  
 

the Montréal Poulain.  (That’s French for colt). Would they put a map of Canada in the C....or P in this case?


hahaha

San Antonio Gunslingers. Rick Neuheisel can be the coach.

I might get some flak for this but Toronto Canada could definitely support a team, 4th largest city in North America and Canada is hungry for more teams in the big 4 sports. I dont know if anyone seen the Bluejays win back to back in the early 90's the whole country went berserk. Toronto Raptors as well last year. The whole country stops to watch our 1 NBA team and 1 MLB team lol.

Apparently it’s already a thing, lol....

Pretty sweet logos IMO... probably too violent for today’s NFL though.

It was the USFL gunslingers. Rick Neuheisal was the QB, which is why I said he should be their coach.

 

(Side note, since you say it’s too PC). The Baltimore Bullets/Washington Bullets were actually named after the Bata Bullet Basketball shoe. The owner of the team owned the Bata Shoe Company in Bata, Md. He bought the Chicago Zephers , moved them to Baltimore, and named Slick Leonard as his first Coach.  They moved, became the Landover Bullets, then won the NBA Championship as the Washington Bullets. Then had to become the Wizards because Bullets was no longer acceptable.  No one remembers that they were the Bata Bullet- competing with the PF Flyer as THE Basketball shoe of the area....

Well the Cleveland Browns don't have a logo anyways, so may as well rename them while they're at it.

and yet they are often referred to as the dawg pound I don't get it

It’s somewhat like an Elephant being the mascot for the Crimson Tide.

    • I agree, but unfortunately for Taylor, the majority of carries is usually 12-15 instead of closer to 20.     Interesting question for you.   What is your thoughts on Peterson, I almost considered it a slap in the face to Barry Sanders with the Lions bringing in AP to potentially surpass Barry's rushing yds total, while wearing a Lions uniform.   Hopefully he doesnt, bit I found it weird when he was initially signed. 
    • KG really wasn’t near 100% until the Jax game either. He looks close to 100% now.    Week 1 Vs the Bears the Lions defense lost 3 CB’s. Two of them starters. They were dominating CHI before that and CHI was able to rally back as a result. DET still almost won the game but Swift dropped the game winner in the end zone. The Lions defense was really banged up vs GB, ARZ and NO. They are finally getting healthy. The Lions are still down two CB’s. Trufant and Coleman won’t play this week and haven’t played since week one.    I think the Swift vs Taylor matchup will be a fun one to watch.  I hope they both get the majority of the carries.   
    • I view him as mediocre.  Might not be fair to him but that's my take.  You can win with mediocre if you have a talented roster but there's a cap on your ceiling.   Good chance that Ballard knows this and will make a change if things don't go the way he wants in the playoffs.
    • If you look at how the trend is heading nowadays it seems like GM has become a complementary role to the Head Coach.  Where they basically work hand in hand with the coach or maybe even for them in scouting the class and shaping their board.  But I think the old model, the classic GM at the top ensuring you have that year to year consistency (and maybe even setting the course on what type of team he wants) has its advantages.   Ballard's a good GM.  Having that in place is really important for your long term health of the franchise.  So I think from that perspective the franchise is immediately better off than half to two-thirds of the rest of the league.   I think what he's missing is the right coach.  He needs someone more current, more creative.  Not necessarily the trendy offensive mind but a head coach who is young and gives you a tactical advantage on one side of the ball and has a chance to grow into the total package.  There's some good options out there, lot of young coordinators filtering in to the league now, but Ballard can also look at college.   Bottom line is I think we're in good hands at the top.  The roster is strong.  Lot of positives just find the right guy to tie it all together.
    • Not often but it can happen.  Bears D are the reason they won in 85
