Every NFL Fan in 90 Seconds

This video is awesome. Particularly funny: Jets fan, Raiders fan, Broncos fan, and Cardinals fan.

I also particularly like the Browns fan and the Seahawks fan.

He needs to redo the Browns one, as now he can actually urinate on Art Modell's grave.

It was funny, but there was an egregious error regarding the Bears. Everyone (except for this guy) knows that they won the Super Bowl in the 1985 season, not 1984. And when Bears fans (and football fans in general) talk about that dominant team, the first thing they talk about is the defense, not Jim McMahon.

In addition to those you listed, Patriots fan is pretty funny, as is Cowboys fan.

Also, the heading should be "Every NFL Fan in 90 Seconds," although the video actually is a little longer than that.

Those were my thoughts exactly. I mean, 84? And if you're going to talk offense, iy's Sweetness. I mean... McMahon????

You know, it's funny how when people mention the worst QBs to win a Super Bowl they mention Dilfer, Doug Williams, and Brad Johnson but they never mention McMahon or Plunkett. Brad Johnson was a better QB than McMahon or Plunkett. Just thought I'd share that.

It's hard to compare across eras, but I think McMahon and Brad Johnson were pretty close minus McMahon's injury problems.

You missed the joke, he was pointing out how Bears fans make outrageous statements that are blatantly false.

No, it wasn't a joke by the guy who made this. It was a mistake.

For some reason, I couldn't get the link to work on my computer, so I looked for the video elsewhere. I found it on YouTube, and not surprisingly someone pointed out this mistake in the comments. The guy who made the video responded that he made the mistake because he didn't bother to look up the correct year. (I note that it should be a commonly known fact among football fans, even those who weren't born yet or were too young to remember. People still talk about the 1985 Bears and compare teams to them all the time; no one compares teams to the 1984 Bears. And when they compare teams to the Bears, they usually are talking about the defense, such as "Yeah, they're a good defense, but they're not the '85 Bears.") He said that he thought about redoing that part of the video to fix the mistake but decided not to do it.

The Football Outsiders Fan: [inserts pedantic/nebbish qualifier because he cannot bear to hear a general statement without offering a correction]

Maybe it's my sense of humour, but I loved the Eagles fan and Jags fan. And of course Raiders fan.

I was expecting Cardinals fan for Jags fan.

Whole Foods? Pssh, everybody knows Trader Joe's is a better source for your organic arugula and free range goat cheese. And that's only if we can't get to a farmer's market.

I don't think he quite capture the contemporary Dolphins fan. It's more like the Cleveland fan... mixed with the Arizona fan.

I think he was going for the "they all died of old age long ago" angle. So it's similar to Arizona's in a way.

Well, I finally dropped the Dolphins this year, so doing them as the Ari fan works for me.

I enjoyed Cle, Buf, and Phi the most.
