AHHH yes. The winter has set in. Hawkeye football is dormant until spring. And even then it is an unsatisfying until the real action of the fall starts. So to pass the time I am watching the NFL playoff games. I am an Eagles fan ( I know, none of you cowboys jackoff comment). So I have to adopt a new team. To say that I am torn is an understatement. That is why I need the rest of BHGP nation to help guide me to finding a temporary team based off of being able to cheer for former Hawkeyes playing in the League.
Now the way I see it I have 6 choices:
New York Jets: Shonn Green
Indianapolis Colts: Dallas Clark/ Bob Sanders
Arizona Cardinals: Kenny Iwebema
Baltimore Ravens: Marshall Yanda
Green Bay Packers: Aaron Kampman
Minnesota Vikings: Chad Greenway
Now there are several factors that can go into this. The Colts look sexy due to having two Hawkeyes, but they already have SB rings. I want as many former Hawks to have one. I love Kenny Iwebema, but I cannot forgive the Cards for dealing the Eagles their playoff loss from last year. I did not like Green Bay from when Favre was there, but he is gone, so that hatred is not really there anymore. Chad Greenway was one of my favorite Hawkeyes to watch, but now Favre is on that team. I don't have an opinion on the Jets, and let's face it, Shonn Greene ran like a monster the other day. And Yanda is absolutely mauling the D-line of the Patriots. That gets him bonus points due to my absolute hatred of the cheating sleeveless hoody wearing a$$hole. Any thoughts from my brethern at BHGP?
