Being the Patriots this is all within the context of not respecting any other teams of course.

Respect
Chiefs. I just like em.
Bills.  I think they may be my 2nd favorite team. They always play with all the disadvantages (nobody wants to play in Buffalo) and they never cry about it.
Cardinals.  They haven't really earned much respect but they haven't really lost it either.
Texans. I like their coach
Jags....they don't blame anyone but themselves
Browns.....As a Pats fan I totally understand a proud long suffering franchise
Packers.....so boring there's nothing to hate about them. Passionate fans
Bears.....is pity the same thing as respect?
Lions...this is a team I'd like to see do well
Saints

Do not respect
Colts
Cowboys
Ravens
Steelers....what on Earth happened to this team?
Redskins
Jets
49ers
Giants....although I admit I sorta forget why
Teams that were making money but held taxpayers hostage for new stadiums anyway and then left town
Teams that brought in Brett Favre in a horridly embarrassing attempt to win a game

Begrudging respect
Panthers
Seahawks
maybe the Broncos

teams I have no real emotions on
Dolphins
Eagles....pity?
Falcons...I'm sorta conflicted on them
Bucs.....The sorta he/said she/said thing on Winston doesn't really reflect on the entire team, but maybe it does.


Least respectable division......NFC East....just horrid

Here's are a couple of reminders...





Could be 7 championships right now. I know this is all subjective deprivation, but these were two very real Super Bowl opportunities that we peed away.

List looks pretty good, overall, although I would say I like Falcons and don't respect a couple of the crappy teams you have listed.

Yeah the Giants are sorta a tough one for me. I don't disrespect a team just because they beat mine. In fact I thought they totally earned both wins. There's just something I don't like about them.

The thing I don't like is how they beat the Pats and then act like they're some all time team even though they're only path to the playoffs is to buy a ticket, but I admit if I were them I'd do the exact same thing.  I'd be like "Who's Tom Brady?"

Dolphins was  my team million years ago.

But they ve been bad for so long , I'm almost numb to them doing anything anymore Win or loose.

I think short of a complete owner franchise overhaul I could care less.

Don 't watch much anymore .  It's changed too much .

I like college football way better spend my emotions on my almamater

You respect the Giants and disrespect the Patriots? Hmmm I guess the Yankees are your team too? How about those Jets? You also a Knicks fan?

Respect:
- Patriots -- they've stayed on top for a very long time through very shrewd player management.
- Redskins -- well, I'm a Skins fan so I have to I suppose.

Disrespect
- Cowboys, Giants, Eagles - everyone else in the NFC East besides the Skins obviously sucks
- Redskins - (yes it's possible to respect and not respect) Dan Snyder screwed my franchise for years.  jerk doesn't belong anywhere near a scenario requiring a football decision.

Indifferent
- Everyone else

LOL!

Nope...Celtics and Bruins.  Don't watch baseball.

I don't even have any strong feelings on the Patriots, as a franchise.  Their success doesn't bother me, my favorite team has won plenty in my lifetime.

But Patriots fans really annoy the crap out of me, and most all of my closest friends are Patriots fans (some of them are annoying too).  15 years ago things were different, then the team started winning and the collective fan base started acting like arrogant jerks.  Not all of their fans are that way, but when you live in NE and see it everyday, it's just comical.  Going to be real interesting to see how they act when Brady/Belicheck leave and the winning stops.

Maybe I'd feel different if I lived somewhere else and didn't see it all the time, but I love living in NH.  Football isn't going to change that.

Respect:
Patriots (my team)
Saints (DefendTheWall)
Bucs (Farm team)
Texans? (former players and coaches playing there)
Lions
Chargers? (since I do live in LA and both LA teams suck but I lean with this LA team more than the other being a fellow AFC team)

HATE:
Broncos (screw Von Miller, Mile HGH, Manning, John Elway etc etc)
Colts (crybabies never win)
Ravens (another set of crybaby that comes from their coach)
Steelers (lol excuse-pullers from their butts)

Least respect/dislike:
every NFC East team minus Redskins
Seahawks
Rams
Raiders
every AFC East team minus Patriots

I am indifferent with everyone else. Either they're irrelevant to the Patriots' success or they're just...irrelevant in general lol.

Respect

Patriots: Home team that suffered forever and now are a 15 year dynasty.
Steelers: Hate them but respect them. Tremendous consistency of winning and being tough as nails.
Broncos: See Steelers
Dolphins: Not always a good team but always play the Pats tough as nails. Gotta respect that.

Disrespect:

Ravens: They chirp and was a team that didn't mind having a murderer as the face of the franchise for over a decade
Colts: Hated the way they decided to change the rules about handchecking of DBs and started the deflate gate saga. All because they are sore losers. Hate sore losers.
Cowboys: Whether great or bad they always got national attention ad nauseum. If they are bad they shouldn't be getting such attention but did simoly because they are the Cowboys. Can't stand that.

Don't Care:

Everyone else

The Steelers....love Pittsburg as a city. Thoroughly respect the 70s and Bill Cowher eras.

Then they talked smack about my QB while they're own is clearly a rapist and then their coach started crying about headsets.....and all those years of glory and built up respect went down the drain. Now they're just a trash franchise.

Most= Pats
Least= Jets/Jags
Everyone else seems to have their ups and downs as far as make up and leadership.

I don't love franchises that move and abandon fan bases (Rams and Raiders are serial offenders), and I don't like franchises that build teams full of criminals (like the Bengals).

I don't like the Pats, Brady or Belichek, but it's hard not to respect them (except when they're cheating, haha).

...And it JUST of easily could only be 3 if Butler  doesnt make the play of his lifetime and the Falcons dont implode in epic fashion.
