Just like I don't think any Packer fans who came over to the Jets just because Brett is here are really hard core Packer fans, you are a fan of the team first and foremost, I can't see a hardcore Jets fan saying they are a fan of both the Jets and the Giants, I see that as a more casual fan who just happens to root for both NY teams, but would probably have a hard time chosing when they play each other, probably root for the team with the most fans in the room at the time.

you have people who are Dallas fans all over the world why? Because they were brain washed into the americas team crap and most of the people like to be associated with winners
I just don't happen to be one of those guys. ok sometimes I would even check out from football all togehter especially when you come of age and many things interest you beside sports also we didn't have direct Tv to watch all the New york teams like today . so when the giants play the jets I am very happy and I can honestly say that i could be ok with the winner of that game . you guys are caught up in the divide and conquer mentality . I left new york in 1977 for the USAF but I have never abondoned My New York sports teams or the people . I am not sure where you reside TBRADY but we all now Ron is also out there in FLA and recently Ron has reasoned that the country is way way full of corruption and we are in trouble so you are either out there with us or you are one of them . AMEN feel free to edit my sentence structure and spice it up a little

Matchup Storyline Did you know?
Series leader: Titans, 21-15-1, in a series that dates back to 1960, when the Houston Oilers defeated the New York Titans 27-21 four weeks into the first season of the American Football League.
Streaks: The Jets have won three of the previous four matchups, but not the most recent one, a 10-6 Titans win in Week 16 of last season.
The Titans put the best start in team history on the line against a Jets team with an agenda for winning the AFC East following last week's big overtime win over the Patriots. The Titans are the 11th team since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 to open a season 10-0. Of the previous 10, seven reached the Super Bowl and five went on to win the Super Bowl. ... The Titans have won a franchise-record 13 consecutive regular-season games and have also won a franchise-record seven straight games on the road. ... The Jets are going for their first five-game winning streak since 2005. ... Jets RB Thomas Jones leads the AFC with 854 rushing yards and is going for a third consecutive 100-yard rushing game.

I am originally from Rockland County , NY, now I am closer to the stadium in Bergen County, NJ. my Father is a Giants fan, my Brother is a Giants fan, my Wife is a Giants fan, my neighbors are Giants fans, my boss is a Giants fan, I have friends at work who are all Giants fans, I am an outnumbered Jets fan minority everywhere I go. but I don't care, I have fun with them with the NY rivalry between the Giants and the Jets.

Each to his own though. And to me it doesn't make gmany any less a Jets fan just because he roots for the Giants too. And what he wrote justifies to me why he supports both because of league history.

Then he is pretty much the exception to the rule, overall, most fans who say they are fans of both teams are more likely to be casual fans rather than die hard fans.
So if they both made it to the Super Bowl, who would you root for? how do you pick which team to root for when they play each other?
