Question
mid to late 80's song .the word were something about football in the NFL

Answer
Hi Andra33,

There's not much to go on, but here are some NFL themed songs from the 80's.

1. "The Super Bowl Shuffle" by The Chicago Bears Shufflin' Crew (1985). I can't believe this reached #75 on the Cashbox Pop Singles chart: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x27ykw_chicago-bears-superbowl-shuffle_music

2. "Are You Ready For Some Football?" by Hank Williams, Jr. (1984). Based on his 1984 #10 country hit "All My Rowdy Friends Are Comin' Over Tonight", Hank re-wrote the lyrics and this was heard for 22 years as the opening theme for ABC's (and then ESPN's) Monday Night Football: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmDW5p8X9xs

3. "Merry Christmas In The NFL" by Willis "The Guard" & Vigorish (1980). This is actually Buckner & Garcia using an alias for this Christmas novelty, recorded a little over one year prior to their breakout one-hit wonder "Pac-Man Fever" (#9, early 1982): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veYwOJpkvHo

In addition to The Super Bowl Shuffle, there are many more team theme songs.  Check out this link for a few more: http://www.11points.com/Sports/11_Brilliant_and_Ridiculous_NFL_Team_Tribute_Song

Hopefully, this helps you find what you're looking for.

Thanks,
