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.

    • Yeah. It's something like the opposing team has to recover the ball, then retreat to the endzone where they get tackled
    • A little-noticed aspect of the NFL’s new extra point rule is that we could see, for the first time in league history, a one-point safety. If the defense gets the ball in the field of play on a conversion attemp, and then a defensive player takes the ball into his own end zone and is tackled, the result will be a one-point safety: The offensive team will get one point. That has never happened before in NFL history. It had never happened before because it was virtually impossible: In the past, any time the defense took possession of the ball on a point-after attempt (either a one-point kick or a two-point conversion), the play was blown dead. A one-point safety was theoretically possible before, but it would have happened only if the defensive team had illegally batted a fumbled ball in the end zone. One-point safeties have happened in college football, most notably in the 2013 Fiesta Bowl, when Kansas State blocked an Oregon extra point and a Kansas State player picked up the ball and ran it into his own end zone. The college rule that gives the defense the opportunity to score two points by returning an interception, fumble or blocked kick to the opposite end zone means that defensive teams that take possession of the ball will try to run it back for a score, and sometimes those players end up getting tackled after backtracking into their own end zones. With that rule now in place in the NFL, it will happen in the NFL eventually as well: Some defensive player is going to reverse field, get caught in his own end zone, and give up the first one-point safety in NFL history.   https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2015/05/22/nfl-may-see-its-first-one-point-safety/#:~:text=If the defense gets the,happened before in NFL history.
    • The "extra point" kicks after touchdowns?
    • The Indianapolis 'we only won because we played the (insert any team name)' Colts vaunted defense.   Doesn't roll off the tongue though.
    • Seeing a team get a safety 3 weeks consecutively is about as likely as a an NFL one point play (yes it's possible but has never happened)
