Top NFL Fan Clubs: The San Francisco 49ers

When it comes to history, it’s hard to match the San Francisco 49ers. They are tied for second among all teams with 5 Super Bowl Wins. They dominated the league in the 80’s and 90’s, winning 5 Super Bowls in a 13 year span, including back to back wins in ‘88 and ‘89. Led by two of the greatest players of all time, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, the Niners were an unstoppable force.

Following a playoff drought in the early 2000’s, the team returned to prominence under Jim Harbaugh, a brief but impressive run highlighted by a trip to the Super Bowl in 2012. Though the team has struggled lately, the future is bright in Santa Clara. With young franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and emerging starts like tight end George Kittle, defensive end DeForest Buckner, and linebacker Fred Warner, a return to postseason glory seems imminent for the 49ers.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: Seattle Seahawks

If loud enough, sound can be very harmful to human ears. Any sound above 85 decibels can cause permanent damage. Seahawks fans at CenturyLink Field have been recorded at as loud as 137.6 decibels, twice setting the Guinness World Record for loudest stadium crowd. However, it is impossible to quantify the passion and intensity of Seahawks fans. They always produce an electric atmosphere, both in and out of the stadium, with their steadfast devotion to the team. With a string of playoff appearances in the last 20 years and back-to-back Super Bowl appearances including a victory over Peyton Manning and the Broncos, Seahawks fans have had plenty to cheer for. Though the team has struggled through some difficult recent seasons, Seahawks fans have never wavered, ready for the team’s return to postseason glory.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Philadelphia Eagles

Philadelphia Eagles fans are by far the scrappiest and may be the most spirited fans in the NFL. They never fail to make the opposing team feel uncomfortable. Through the success of the Eagles in the 2018 playoffs, fans all around the league began to notice the passion that their fans had. Notoriously known for mocking the Vikings “skol” chant and defying the Philadelphia police’s use of hydraulic fluid to prevent fans from climbing light poles, there seems to be no limit to what Eagles fans are willing to do to support their team. Some instances, the fans have ridden their spirit to such extremes that it seems that they may be a key factor in the success of the organization.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Miami Dolphins

Few franchises can match the prestige and history of the Miami Dolphins. Winning Super Bowls VII and VIII established the Dolphins as an NFL powerhouse from its outset. In 1972-1973, the Dolphins became the only team ever to complete a perfect season with a Super Bowl victory. Legendary names such as Don Shula and Dan Marino, both of whom are among the greatest ever in their respective roles, characterize this rich history. While the Dolphins haven’t appeared in a Super Bowl in over 30 years, their luck would appear to be turning around, with the team returning to the playoffs in 2016. Led by young head coach Adam Gase and emerging stars such as cornerback Xavien Howard, running back Kenyan Drake, and safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, the future looks bright in Miami.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Green Bay Packers

While in their 100th season, the Green Bay Packers are, and always have been, a team to look out for. Having four Super Bowl titles under their belt and currently being led by star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are looking just as good as they always do this season. The symbolic green and gold represents none other than Green Bay. It is clear to why celebrities such as Justin Timberlake, Lil Wayne, and Ellen Degeneres support the team. To outsiders, how the Packers have remained relevant throughout all these years seems to be a mystery, yet the answer is very clear: the fans.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Chicago Bears

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.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Pittsburgh Steelers

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.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The Dallas Cowboys

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.

Top NFL Fan Clubs: The New England Patriots

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.
