Jacksonville had to cover 10,000 seats to avoid weekly blackouts, and they are still blacked out weekly. That's gotta be my pick. Besides, when's the last time you saw someone in a Jaguars jersey?
Jax was my pick as well for exactly the reasons you cite.
If it is worst in terms of most obnoxious I have to vote Jets because Philly is not a rival of ours and I don't have a large enough sample size of Philly fans to draw a conclusion with.

While all teams have obnoxious fans, the Jets take the cake. I am amazed when I go on their message boards (just to look, not to post) how vulgar they are, almost to a man (or a woman). Virtually every thread disintegrates into vile comments about Tom Brady's sexual preferences or giddy hopes that he is badly injured when we play them. Then there are the obnoxious chants at the games, the requests for women to expose themselves, and on and on.
They are the worst, IMO. Other teams have obnoxiously loyal fans too (Steelers come to mind), but at least they are focussed, for the most part, on the game and beating the Pats fair and square.
The only consolation, if we win on Sunday, will be returning briefly and finding all those obnoxious fans on the ledge now that they have discovered that the team is the same old Jests.
I find Steelers fans far, far more obnoxious than those of any other team. The Steelers never lose because the other team was better, but only because of whatever excuse they can come up with. Also, they have a sense of entitlement to winning that puts even the more obnoxious Pats fans (and I say this as a rabid Pats fan) to shame.

Felger had a classic rant on Jets fans the other day, and while Felger can piss off from time to time, he was spot on about Jets fans. And I mean this in no disrespect to the reasonable and contributing Jets fans here, but there is a very large percentage of Jets fans that is - as Felger put it - sub-human. Felger likened it to the graphics of the evolution of man, with the Jets fan coming in just slightly after the chimp.
And its true. Honest to god, nearly every Jets fans I've come across has just embodied this stereotype of this absolute illiterate ingrate. I'm sorry, but this has to be the most vile and stupid fanbase, or group of people, existing on the planet right now. They are basically the Taliban of sports fans.

I voted for the Eagles because in my opinion, Philly sports fans in general are the most obnoxious. Then again, not all of them can be thrown into that category; I've talked to a few Eagles fans who are really cool. It's just that the worst Philly fans are truly the bottom of the barrel.
Having said that, every team has their obnoxious fans and their cool fans, so it's hard to say which team's fanbase is the worst because not all fans of a given team behave the same way. And I'm not gonna sugarcoat this, the behavior of some Pats fans makes me cringe with embarrassment. Some of them are drunk and belligerent, some are fairweather fans who jump ship at the first sign of trouble, while others are the perennial whiners who are just never happy. But does that mean that the entire Pats fanbase are idiots? A lot of people here, myself included, are very passionate about the team and the sport and won't give up on them.
Worst NFL fanbase? That's tough to say because there could be several different definitions of worst.
Worst as in being unruly, drunk, and belligerent at games? I'd say that's probably a close call between the Eagles, Jets and Chargers; my vote goes to the Eagles although reports out of San Diego the last couple of years makes it hard not to pick them.
Worst as in being apathetic, not supporting the home team, and having a low football IQ? I know many say the Jaguars because of their inability to sellout, but I give them a pass. They have one of the smallest numbers of people in their area to draw fans from, they haven't been in existence for all that long, they play in a city where people constantly move in and out, and in a state that is one of the two hit the worst by the current economy. Atlanta would be my choice, followed by Minnesota and San Diego. Arizona, Miami and Tampa Bay would be worth considering as well.
Worst as in being obnoxious and lack of objectivity? I'll go with Steeler fans for the reasons DegenCutter stated above (btw great first post, and welcome to the board) although it's really tough to not pick the Cowboys in this category. I know we have a couple of great Steeler fans that post here often but from what I have seen and heard they're the exception and not the rule to the way Steeler fans act.
The Chargers are the worst. In Bruschi's book he says it is the only stadium that his family did not feel safe. Living in Southern California and traveling a lot, I run into a lot of fans for other teams. Most are really cool and knowledgable. But for some reason the Charger fans behave like they have a huge stick up their @$$ and it is the Patriots fault. Charger fans make Raider fans look civilized.
