    Ive said that the Bears, Packers, and Giants should be in the top 3 by default. I have Pittsburgh and Dallas to round out the top 5.

    The Colts? Im unsure where they stand. Most of their historic success was in Baltimore. And Cleveland and Cinncy had a lot of success too, but I wouldn't put them in the top 5.
    I think I'd put San Fran in the top 5 and have the Giants at #6 on the outside just looking in. But yes.

    I posted by 10 ten historical franchises before with lots of analysis, but I'm too lazy to do that again.


    Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

        San Fran is up there. I think the Giants belong in top 3 because of their impact on the league. There wouldn't be a Green Bay if it wasn't for Mara. There probably wouldn't be the Steelers either. Plus, the coaching trees, the spike, the gatorade splash, the class they run by, theres so much history to the franchise, its impossible to me to leave them out of the top 3.

        Call me a homer, but I think theyre top 3. The Bears are the most successful franchise in the league, followed by the Packers, then the Giants.

          What do you mean there wouldnt be a Green Bay without Mara?
          Green Bay was sucessful before Lombardi

            Revenue sharing. Without it, small market teams wouldn't survive.

            Mara was the biggest supporter of the idea, even though the idea meant the Giants would have stiffer competition, and less wins and profits as a result.

              It's too bad that we can't, like, clone Wellington Mara and Pete Rozelle.

                  Really? 3 championships in 4 years for the Pats erases all the previous decades of ineptitude for them? Prior to 01, would they have even been ranked in the top 20 NFL franchises of all-time?

                  Also, for the people doing "recent" history and listing more than one team, how do you not have the Colts? 60 wins in the past 5 years, 50 in the past 4 (only the 2nd team in NFL history to do that), and the reigning World Champions isn't good enough to be on the short list of great franchises in "recent history"?


                  The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.

                  If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.

                      Seriously, if you're talking about historically, the lowest you could put the Packers or the Bears is in the top 5.
                      As a diehard-Vikings fan, I think they shouldn't even be in this conversation. The words "Minnesota Vikings" are synonymous with the words "incompetant" and "heart-breaking". We haven't done anything to even be considered a great franchise.

                          Yes they lost two superbowls, one to the '85 Bears, other to the '96 Pack with Favre in his prime and Reggie White,Gilbert Brown etc. Tough games

                              Good list. I'm not sure Indy belongs on there as I'd probably rather have Washington or Oakland.

                                Yea, I just sorta crapped that out, and on second thought, Wash and Oak would go ahead of Indy.
