Hey,

I've been playing Madden for a few years and have never understood the rules fully. Surprisingly enough I still really enjoy the game, and I believe I could enjoy the sport itself if I gave it a chance. Which team should I get into? I'm usually an underdog kinda guy. I like a team that doesn't necessarily win all the time, but pulls a lot of surprises; could anyone suggest a team to me that fits the bill and doesn't suck entirely?

i was following the Ravens for a little while, although I hear they've gone to shit?

well if you like underdogs go for the dolphins, the dolphin's  07 record is 1-15 and they lost their 1st preseason game, but chad pennigton is going there so there's hope

You're not going to find a team that's always like the one you described. One year they could pull off great upsets, the next they could be like the Dolphins or Raiders. Teams that may fit what you're looking for this year are the Browns, Broncos, Vikings, Eagles, Redskins, Rams or Seahawks.

Here are some methods:

Hometown: just pick the team that's in the city closest to you

Fair Weather: Pick the team that is winning, and if they're not next year, drop them

Mascot: If you like a certain animal, etc. go with them. For example, I could pick the Jaguars

Random: you know, pull a name out of a hat, etc.

Research: look into stats, etc.

This. They usually do at least pretty good.

But the Jets are looking pretty good this year.

Go with the Jaguars, that's a team I root for when they aren't playing the Pats. They have a cool logo, team colors, and are a good team. 

Whatever you do, don't choose the Colts or Chargers. Also, if you aren't from New England, there's no point in being a Patriots fan, you'll get pegged with too much (deserved) crap and it won't be worth it.

No, really though, OP. I wouldn't try to get into a team cold turkey. If you're in the UK, just follow the teams that you can watch (I know availability is usually limited over there) and if you find yourself interested in a team because of their performance, their style, their players and stories, pull for them. That's how most football fans decide who to root for in the other conference during the playoffs and that works other sports as well.

Re: DrCoolMoney: Yeah, don't pick the Pats, Colts, or the most recent Superbowl champion. If you really want to pull for one of those teams, wait until they have a bad year, otherwise you're just asking to get heckled.

I'm glad to see you don't want to be a front runner. My favorite team is the Chicago Bears. They pretty much fill the criteria that you listed. They aren't ever that good or bad. An exception of two years where they were really good with one championship in 1985. The Bears usually tough hard nosed teams built around defense and a power running game. Just dont go for the Packers. I hate those guys.

Also, the Ravens are terrible. Teams that switch cities are a joke and I would never root for them.

Hmm, quite a broad response. So much so that there's not a single team that people are mentioning more than any other.

Okay, I think I might well boil it down to Bears, Eagles, or Jaguars...

Your votes? (I wont necessarily go for the team that wins the vote, it's just interesting to see which of the above gets more of a shout).

This is like asking people which sandwich you should like even though you've never eaten one before.

I would liken it more to recommending a sandwich; something I'm sure plenty of people would do, or have done. Like I said, I wasn't looking for the vote to totally define my tastes, I just wanted to know what others thought.
