The Funniest NFL Fan Signs We’ve Ever Come Across

Football | 2/21/19

Going to an NFL game is more than watching players get pummeled to the ground. With each team comes a unique set of fans who bring a different perspective that not everyone is accustomed to. At the end of the day, every fan wants to show their diehard support for their team. If they can affect the opposing team, then that’s even better. Booing really loudly can only do so much, which is why fan signs are a thing. Whether you’re watching at home or you’re in the stadium, you should be prepared to see some pretty obscure and funny fan signs. Try and keep your composure as you go through these hilarious NFL fan signs.

Joke’s On You

Being a genuine Patriot fan has its perks. For starters, you have the greatest quarterback of all time to cheer on in Tom Brady. So, that gives you the leeway to call him the GOAT (greatest of all time), and it is true. Some people use the term for players who aren’t even close.

When Brady was dealing with Deflate Gate and his suspension, Patriot fans were livid. Their GOAT wasn’t playing, so they needed someone to blame. The blame fell on Roger Goodell, or “Roger The Joke.”

He PROMISES They Used To Be Good

Yeah, you and everyone else whose team hasn’t seen a divisional playoff game in years. People always want to point to the glory days whenever their team isn’t doing well in the present. It’s an age-old defense mechanism.

Sure, the Washington Redskins had their moments in the past, but they are not all that great at the present time. The best thing fans can do is dwell in the past and hope they return to prominence soon. Hopefully, a healthy Adrian Peterson can help with that.

Admitting Fault To Santa

Santa isn’t the one you want to tell about your lousy side. However, it appears that this Eagles fan is fed up. Granted, this is most likely before they won their most recent Super Bowl over the Patriots, so that would make this sign more relevant.

When your team is doing poorly, it feels like someone is tugging at your heart. It makes you act out of character as well, so this admission to Santa makes total sense. Hopefully, the rest of the Eagles didn’t get coal under their trees.

More tom Brady Banter

The people can’t get enough of bashing Tom Brady it seems. Did he have anything to do with Deflate Gate, we don’t know. It looks like everyone else agrees that he did have a hand in deflating the balls.

These Bills fans are showing no remorse as they laugh at their own sign. With Brady sitting there like an actual cry baby, it makes things a little more interesting. You have to be a tough cookie to withstand all this banter.

The Blasphemy At An All-time High

We get it, Russell Wilson (#3) is pretty good. In fact, he’s played better than most have at his age and he’s done more too. However, would a savior throw a game-losing interception in the Super Bowl? We think not. This fan sign is blasphemy at its best, but what makes it hilarious.

As we said, Wilson is quite a special talent. But you can’t go comparing him to the Christian and Catholic Lord and Savior. Something about this sign makes us think that this fan really believes in this statement.

Which Sounds More Delusional?

This is the type of kid that every other kid should aspire to be like. He still looks relatively young, but he has some maturity to him. Still believing in Santa at an older age has a certain level of innocence attached to it and all kids should remain innocent for as long as they can.

As for the Lions part, this kid is as delusional as they come. There’s no telling when the team will be great again, but we don’t think it’s anytime soon. He has a better chance of riding Santa’s sleigh than to witness the Lions becoming a force again.

Uh Oh Farve…

If you don’t recall Brett Farve’s past promiscuous activity, allow us to refresh your memory. When Farve played for the New York Jets, he was caught texting a member of the Jets media crew some pretty explicit messages.

Farve sent inappropriate messages to columnist Jenn Sterger that included a picture of his private area. These ladies above capitalized on his misfortune and made the perfect distracting sign. We’re sure that if he saw it, his game was altered a bit.

Good One, Kid

Once you reach a certain level of education, then it’s pretty much common knowledge that everyone knows how much of the Earth is covered in water. This young boy knows the fraction, but he also throws in an interesting fact that people other than Raider fans wouldn’t know.

Charles Woodson is one of the better defensive backs the sport of football has seen. He’s known for his stingy coverage and the ability to cover pretty much anyone. That’s what makes this sign that much more clever. Do you see what he did there?

Clever Wordplay Makes For Great Signs

This sign was held up just days before the Philadelphia Eagles won the Super Bowl. It’s no secret that every fan becomes a bundle of optimism when their team reaches the big game. Prediction always favors their side no matter who they’re playing.

As it turns out, this fan was more than correct. Throwing in the Punxsutawney Phil groundhog pun was a lovely ribbon on top as well. It fit perfectly for the sign and might make you do a double take if you don’t get it right away.

Welcome To Seattle In The Winter

Some people like to make signs that poke fun at opposing players, similar to the Brett Farve one you witnessed a few slides back and the others you will see soon. Meanwhile, some people make signs that might act as a message to someone who is viewing at home, such as “Linda, will you marry me?”

Then you have the real jokesters like these two. Unless they aren’t from Seattle and it’s their first time there, then they should be familiar with the weather. Letting others know you can’t feel your face is the perfect sign for when the TV camera pans by and sees you with everything covered. Classic.

The Carolina Kittys

The Carolina Panthers are a respected franchise in the NFL. Behind superstar quarterback Cam Newton, they should have plenty of great years ahead of them. They aren’t pushovers in the slightest, but this fan begs to differ.

Say hello to the Carolina Kittys. With Cam Newton at the helm, they should still be a solid team, don’t you think? These Eagles fans are getting pretty personal with this one. Calling a panther a kitty is a low blow if you ask us.

Praying For Her Ex

When a boyfriend messes up and forces their girl to break up with him, the spite that follows is almost unbearable. You never know what she is going to do or what she’s capable of. This is a perfect example of spite on full blast.

What if her past boyfriend was a huge Green Bay fan? And here she is with a sign, spitting in his face practically. We’re sure he deserved it, but if turned on the game and saw this, he might start crying in his seat. That’s what makes this sign so funny.

Straight To The Point

We’re not sure if this is a sign or a true cry for help. Depending on who your team is, this could be your reality too. And at times, it could be a plea for help, while other times you could just be attempting to motivate your team if they so happen to see you holding that up.

Whatever the case may be, we recognize that your team isn’t too great. This looks like a Washington fan, and if the sign we held up earlier is any indication, they are all still living in the past.

Team So Bad, Had To Switch

You know things are bad when you concede that your team is terrible through a poster. We are talking about the Browns here, though. We give this guy a free pass for that because the Browns haven’t been good at football in over four decades.

He thought the refs changing would help, but boy was he wrong. He figured his best chance at football bliss was switching teams — even if they are a rival team. We wish him well.

Watch Out, Brady

If you’ve been keeping track of the past signs, then you should be well aware of what’s going on here. By definition, Tom Brady turned into the G.O.A.T. in recent years. His play speaks for itself, as does his resume, so it’s only right.

That means these Eagle fans are looking to cook up Brady. And they did just that in their latest Super Bowl matchup. Eagles fans know how to make some good signs, if you ask us.

What A Great Honeymoon

We’re unsure if this man’s wife really wanted to honeymoon in Green Bay with thousands of other rabid Packers fans in the cold. If she was really okay with wearing a cheesehead with a veil attached to it, then please inform us where in the world the women that are like can be found and we’ll book a trip there.

Her face seems little excited, but she could be still riding her wedding high. Ladies and gentlemen, we present to you: the Happiest Man on Earth! And he roots for a good team.

Suddenly Single

Aaron Rodgers has been gracing the football field for the Green Bay Packers since 2005. In August 2018, he signed a record-breaking four-year extension worth $134 million. Clearly, the quarterback isn’t afraid of commitment! And by the looks of it, neither is this dedicated fan, who was quick to throw up this sign asking for Rodger’s hand in marriage…while her boyfriend was right next to her.

We’re sure Rodgers gets a ton of inquiries like this (he is pretty easy on the eyes and loaded after all), but the fact that this girl called out her boyfriend in her sign takes it to the next level.

Brady Gets Burned Again

Back on the topic of Tom Brady and Deflate-Gate, these fans made the perfect trash-talking sign. As it goes, Brady had nothing to do with the deflated balls, but he just so happened to break his phone when it was needed for evidence.

These guys capitalized on that situation and made a sign worth its weight in gold. We hope Brady, or at least someone on his team, saw this poster. That would have made it ten times better.

The Raider Hate Is Real

We touched on it earlier, but Raider fans might receive the most trash talk out of all the NFL teams in the league. The hate is so real for them that these Denver Broncos fans took the time and wrote a well thought-out joke to go on their sign.

Now, we know the Raiders haven’t won anything in some time, so to call them the biggest losers is quite funny. This guy’s face is very stern while holding the sign up too, which makes you believe him even more.

Cheaters Exit Here

Back to more Patriot slander! NFL fans who aren’t New England Patriots fans love calling the Patriots cheaters. And whether or not you believe it to be true, the debate is still up in the air.

They’ve been in plenty of sticky situations over the past decade, and it just makes their case for being a non-cheating team worse. Just when you think they’re playing fair, another gate opens and leaves them and their fans fighting off all the backlash like this sign here.

Bikini Girls Have Some Fun

With Aaron Rodgers out of the lineup, the Green Bay Packers are reduced to a team not worth playing. Rodgers makes that much of a difference. His presence is so much needed that these girls risked their health by standing out there in just bikinis to hold up these signs.

And the cleverness of it is there. Real football fans know the agony that comes with losing their starting quarterback, so these girls probably didn’t mind the cold to get their message out.

It’s All Right, He’s Going To Save Them

Fans of the Steelers and Saved by the Bell will be sure to love this sign. This guy is praising Steelers running back James Conner during a September 2018 game against the Kansas City Chiefs, when he filled in for Le’Veon Bell (out on a contract dispute).

We’re sure Conner appreciated the sentiment as he’s had a rough couple of years. First he tore his ACL and then found out he had Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He played 14 games with the Steelers during the 2017 season before getting injured again. He came back in 2018 and scored two touchdowns and 192 total yards in the team’s game against the Chiefs.

Try Again Next Time

This is the ultimate sign of defeat. Realizing that you and your team have lost, the best thing to do is pack up your bags and pray for next year. This lady has a sad face for reason. It’s never fun to take a loss.

It is funny, however to see someone this defeated on live TV. She could have saved this attitude for another day. Winners keep their head up, but sore losers get laughed at.

That’s A Long Time Ago

The year is 2016 and there they are. This couple has been fans of the Bills for quite some time. Sadly, they haven’t seen an inch of playoff action since 1999. You read that correctly. Even Prince is on the poster when he was in his prime.

Some fans are loyal to the soil. These two look like they will be that way. Thankfully, the Bills made the playoffs in 2018. This couple must have been thrilled.

Bikini Girls Are Back

Oh, you thought the Bikini Girls wouldn’t make a return, did you? Well, they’re back and with a slew of demands. Do you think Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are up to the challenge?

These requests aren’t that crazy when you look at it. The Packers have done all of these tasks within the past nine years. The interesting part is seeing these women in bikinis in the cold of Wisconsin. They must have some pretty thick skin.

Great Usage Of Words

At first, this guy looks like Kevin from The Office. It isn’t him. It’s just a random fan who demands justice for his football club. He wants a new GM so badly that he spelled it out in such a way that would catch ESPN’s attention.

Asking Santa for a new GM is the ultimate gift to ask for. It might be a little tough for St. Nick too. This man is determined, however to get a new leader.

The Raiders Don’t Want Vegas

With the move to Las Vegas coming sooner rather than later for the current Oakland Raiders, fans are becoming more and more blunt about their hate for Vegas. This is one of the more subtle signs from the Oakland fan base, in case you were wondering.

Their fans can be a little feisty, so these four words on this simple piece of paper should be considered a nice gesture. And that’s what the funny part is.

Watch Out, Jimmy!

Ever since Tom Brady missed games due to his suspension and the Patriots were forced to use backup Jimmy Garoppolo, there’s been a new heartthrob in the NFL. This sign has all the proof you need to see. Not even the words could finish the sentence.

Maybe all this love got to his head and that’s why he ended up getting traded from the Patriots. Seeing this sign while you’re trying to complete a pass might be a little distracting.

When The Winter Tricks Deceives You

In July, everything might seem like a better idea. The sun is shining, summer is in full swing and the cold seasons seem so far away. Why not make plans for the winter, she said. It will be fun, she said.

Come football season, the temperature has changed, and so has your mindset. This funny sign is here to let us know that next time you plan for the winter be sure it’s really what you want to do.

Not Good Enough For This Kid

A record of 3-1 is a pretty good record to start your season off with. Some teams are unlucky and begin 0-4 or 1-3. For the Rams to begin with only one loss, this fan is getting a little pushy to still want the head coach fired.

Nonetheless, it’s still a funny picture to see. It’s also very polarizing. Some might want Jeff Fisher around still, and some might feel like this kid. A war is bound to start in those stands.

Let It Be Known

This is one way to catch the attention of the best defensive player in the NFL. Its good that she started off by telling him she was sweet because J.J. Watt is a sweet guy too. Being single is a plus.

The thing that is for sure to hook him is the part about baking. Being able to bake for a hungry athlete is the difference between keeping him happy or angry. Sometimes, they just want some fresh cookies or a cake.

A Fierce Mother’s Sign

This mom wasn’t having it. Surrounded by a group of Seahawk fans, she stood courageously with a very bold sign. “We’re having sea chicken for dinner! Yum Yum.” Is that tuna?

Whether it’s tuna or not, this lady means business. Her facial expression says it all. The Seahawk fans around her look like they’re not paying her any attention. In reality, the Seahawks have been better than the Cardinals so this lady is being very optimistic.

That’s Harsh

A perk of the NFL is that if your team has the worst record at the end of the season, then your team gets the first draft pick. Some teams have been known to lose on purpose so they can secure the top draft spot.

It looks like these fans have had enough of their team and just want them to lose. They need a breath of fresh air and perhaps the number one draft pick could help.

True Story

Steelers fans have been known to be some of the most ruthless fans in the game. This sign is a little on the light side compared to some of the other things you might see in the crowd. Still, a splattered bird is a little graphic.

And if we’re correct, that looks like its supposed to be the Arizona Cardinal. That’s too bad for the Cardinals, what kind of cool and funny rebuttal can they have for this?

That’s One Way To Use His Slogan

You know how Trump preached “Make America Great Again,” well, that’s still up for debate, but maybe the Dolphins can still turn things around. They aren’t the worse team in the NFL, but a little motivation never killed a team.

Sometimes it’s more about the message then who is delivering it. When it’s a fathead of Trump at a football game, you can only look at it and laugh. In some cases, it could have angered some players, triggering them to play better.

Great Choice

Sometimes, the only selections might not be your preferred choice. In any event, you can create your own candidate like this gentleman did. Trump wasn’t his cup of tea, Hillary didn’t cut it for him, but Drew Brees can get the energy done.

He handles business in his communities, on the field, and at home. Sounds like a great choice and this fan is proud to be voting for him. Always remember to vote wisely.

That’s Got To Hurt

Not every fan is lucky enough to have a good team. And sometimes your born to a city that has been cursed in sports for more than 50 years. The Browns are one of those teams. They completed a win-less season recently and we bet their players and fans were distraught.

Thankfully, if you’re dyslexic, a 0-12 record might look good to for a couple of seconds. Then someone tells you the truth and you’re sad again.

She Hit Him With A Low Blow

If you don’t know who Jameis Winston is, then here’s a little backstory. Winston is a former Heisman winner who was caught shoplifting crabs from a grocery store. He claimed he wasn’t stealing them, but instead, forgot to pay for the crabs.

People believed what they wanted to, but apparently, this lady isn’t having it. Winston also has a past of misconduct with women. She wants him to be shut down for good due to his actions. But she made it funny.

Ha! That’s A Nice Try

What a clever way to ask for a ring! When your boyfriend is being too cheap, you can always head over to a football game and ask the best quarterback in the league if you can have one of his many rings.

If that doesn’t work, then you might be out of luck. You will be forced to believe in Santa again like the person next to this lady. Sports fans are some of the funniest people out there.
