During the 1970s, the San Diego Chargers and the Miami Dolphins rose to become serious contenders. That’s when their rivalry first ignited. It was on display at an AFC Orange Bowl playoff game in January 1982. The clash between the two high-scoring teams unleashed a fireworks performance, and San Diego’s win made it one of the best NFL football games ever played. The Dolphins, for their part, won the Super Bowl three consecutive years: 1971, 1972 and 1973. Glory days.
Today, they’ve passed them by. The Chargers are falling through the cracks to oblivion on the streets of L.A. while the Dolphins haven’t seen the Super Bowl since 1984. These two fans are making the best of it. Huge score with getting players to sign their banners!
Anonymous Dig at Eagles Fans
Philadelphia Eagles fans probably deserved this one. Comparing a football franchise to the U.S. Postal Service is a true insult. The agency has been called slow, overburdened with bureaucracy, and laced with a regressive tendency to “go postal.” The meme-worthy reply: “Well played, Patriots fans.”
Patriot fans scored a genuine win with this one. The Patriots and Eagles fan base rivalry goes way back, but the Super Bowl LII matchup stirred it up even more. All told, the East coast rivals have a lot in common when it comes to exuberant expressions of team spirit.
She Likes Super Bowl Champs - He Likes the Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys won more regular-season games than any other franchise. You’ll have to go back to the days of the moon landing to see evidence of that monumental winning streak. The team also procured two Super Bowl championships during that era. In both 1971 and 1977, the Cowboys clinched the world championship title. By the ’80s, those glorious days gradually began slipping away into oblivion. However, the ’90s brought new wind to the team’s sails, and they proceeded to overcome the Buffalo Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.
The following year the two teams matched up once more, and the Cowboys, again, took the Bills. In 1995, the Cowboys won Super Bowl XXX by crushing the Pittsburgh Steelers for their fifth, and final, Super Bowl championship. This Cowboys fan claims to like the Super Bowl, as if the game is somehow related to his team this century. The fact is, it’s been over twenty years since the Cowboys have played in a Super Bowl game. If he likes the Super Bowl, maybe he should like what she likes.
Yet Another Sign of the Self-Deprecating Browns Fan Base
“We Want Bama” translated: They want top-ranked college team Alabama Crimson Tide to face off against the worst team in the NFL, i.e., The Browns. Low blow. But how tempting is it to watch that matchup?
This fan just wants a chance to see his team win. At least he’s still cheerful after another loss that brought the Browns to 0-11 for the season. For the franchise, “We Want Bama” is yet another humiliating homemade sign gaining entrance into the meme-dom of Cleveland Browns fan signs. Can’t blame fans, they’re just trying to make the best.
‘Why? It Makes No Sense!’
These Seattle Seahawk fans can’t understand why the 1995 expansion team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, picked up a punter over the option of rostering their quarterback, Russell Wilson, in the 2012 NFL draft. When the 2013 season kicked off, guess which team was in dire need of a quarterback? Guess which team was the laughing stock of the league? Hint: It starts with a “J.”
And, who’s in charge of this game? Who’s throwing passes over Jaguars' heads for four touchdowns? Exactly. Russell Wilson, the quarterback they could have had. The Jaguars deserved this jab!
