The Chicago Bears are a franchise steeped in history, and with a new and improving roster, fans have been given the privilege of focusing on the future- not just the past. How did the Bears become so iconic? A history of frightening defenses and exciting skill-position players? Maybe. A series of SNL skits and an eccentric former coach? Probably. It really doesn’t matter how the Bears became a national brand- they are one. On any given Sunday at Soldier Field, you might find yourself running into Mila Kunis, Ashton Kutcher, or even former President Barack Obama. With a sudden rise in talent, the Bears seem to be getting back on track, and fans everywhere are preparing to flock to the windy city to see “Da Bears” as their team gets closer and closer to emulating their former self.
Wiz Khalifa’s 2010 hit, “Black and Yellow,” acted as a Steelers anthem throughout their 2011 super bowl run. As the players emerged from the tunnel, fueled by new fight song, Steelers fans were once again reminded of how in-tune the Steelers organization remained with their fan base. The Steelers and their fans connect through the iconic city of Pittsburgh, a blue-collar town founded on the backs of steelworkers.
Fittingly, they are led by the rugged “Big Ben” Roethlisberger, a 1-year high school quarterback out of Lima, Ohio (and 2 time Super Bowl champion). If it isn’t clear enough, the Steelers have been successful because they make the most out of what they have. They certainly belong in Pittsburgh in that their charm is subtle, yet inexplicably apparent; they don’t need to be flashy to be noticed. Pittsburgh fans are overwhelmingly everyday people, and they remain loyal to their team because, in the chaos of daily life, the Steelers don’t forget about them.
The Dallas Cowboys are by far one of the most historically dominant organizations in the NFL. Their five Super Bowl titles and legends such as Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Troy Aikman, and many more who have all been a part of America’s Team provide a clear testament to why most other fans show nothing but jealousy towards them.
Nowadays, the Cowboys are just as relevant as they were in the past with stars Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott leading the charge. Their strength throughout the years has been represented not only in their record, but also the passion within their fanbase. Moreover, their fans play a key role in keeping the team spirit high and maintaining the dominance that was established a long time ago.
The Tom Brady-Bill Belichick era has proven quite fruitful for New England Patriots fans. Since 2001, the team has missed the playoffs just twice, winning five Super Bowls in eight trips. With these levels of success, the team is often considered one of the greatest NFL dynasties of all time, with Brady and Belichick widely regarded as some of the best ever in their respective roles. While the success of the Patriots may draw to mind names such as Brady, Belichick, Gronkowski, Moss, Welker, Bruschi, and others, the driving force behind the popularity of the team has been a devoted fanbase, with some of the top fan clubs in the country.
