Default The last season you believe a bunch of teams had a shot to win the Super Bowl.

Hmmm...perhaps 1998?

The 1998 New York Jets
The 1998 San Francisco 49ers
The 1998 Atlanta Falcons
The 1998 Minnesota Vikings
The 1998 Denver Broncos (obviously)
The 1998 Green Bay Packers

All of those teams had great seasons that year and could have really beaten anyone. People still talk about those teams to this day. I know in my mind that was the last team for my franchise I believe had a shot to at least getting there.

That's actually pretty interesting. Gonna test my memory

The Jets... Was Neil O'Donnell Quarterback then? We'll I'm not sure exactly what the Jets had... I was a wee 7 year old, and although I do remember watching my Broncos playing in the superbowl, the season was a blur to me. I remember watching Broncos Championship tapes though. Jets fans probably remember the awkward kickoff that was a good 40 yards down the field that the Broncos actually recovered. The Jets lead at halftime but could not prevail.

The 49ers- Unfortunately this is another team I struggle with considering they never matched up with the Broncos (as didn't the Vikings) I do know they were lead by Rice and Young and that in itself made them contenders. 49ers fans remember the Young to T.O. throw.

The Atlanta Falcons. Lead by Trash Talking, loud mouthed, shifty but not fast running back Jamaal Anderson, the Falcons weren't necessarily the favorites to reach the superbowl, and had to squeak by an unbelievable Vikings team. This is a Falcons team that made it farther than any other Falcons team in a while. Team stars included Eugene Robinson (for more than 1 reason) and Jessie Tuggle

THe Vikings. The vikings had a great, great year lead by Quarterback Randall Cunningham, Cris Carter, and a Rookie moss, the vikings tore up the regular season and were truly expected to make it to the superbowl. Even more so than this years vikings. It turned out that the Falcons won when it came down to a last second field goal.

The Broncos... Well I can name you the entire starting lineup from the 1998 team.

The Packers fell victim to my Broncos a year earlier, and Favre surely wanted a taste of victory but he couldnt get it

Errrm well I don't know about not being able to contend with the Broncos. We did smack them upside the head the previous season during the end of the year. Really in my opinion the only team the 49ers could never beat was Green Bay. They were really the only for sure obstacle in our way and in my opinion cost us at least one more Super Bowl. Everyone to this day still says if Garrison Hearst hadn't broken his leg on the first play of the game against the Atlanta Falcons, things may have been drastically different. We had the league's best rushing attack that year.

Last year going into the playoffs ... the Colts and Chargers were on a combined like 16 game winning streak or something. As soon as the Chargers trounced the Broncos to finish the season I knew I didn't want to play them the next week. Then there were the Titans & Steelers, and an argument could be made for the Ravens as well.

In the NFC, the Panthers & Giants both had amazing running games, though the Giants were a shell of themselves without Plax. But the Eagles were strong, and I don't think anyone had the Cardinals in the Super Bowl.

The Green Bay Packers hold the trademark. They've used their oval G since 1961.

The NFL club says it granted limited permission to use a similar mark to the University of Georgia (in 1964) and to Grambling.

You mean the game where Terrell Davis was hurt, and played maybe a half? In San Francisco I might add, that game was similar to the 1996 game against the Packers that the Broncos got annhilated without John Elway and Packer fans saying they would kick the Broncos butts because they did it last year.
And that 1998 Broncos team was about as well rounded on offense as you can get. Defense was stout when they needed to, and had the players to create turnovers.

If Hurst wouldn't have broken his ankle the Niners would have had a lot better chance of taking down Atlanta.

Personally I think that if a team makes the Playoffs then it has a serious chance of winning the Superbowl. The Giants won it despite being 5th Seed, while the Steelers won it despite being 6th Seed, so I honestly believe that if you can make playoffs then you can win the whole thing. And there are probably at least 16 teams with a possibility of making the playoffs every single year. So every year a ton of teams have a chance of winning it.

Last year...?

I mean there really hasn't been a dominate team in the league besides the Patriots where you go "No way anyone else wins the super bowl this year" and that was the year where they lost to the Giants.

The Vikings, Saints, Cardinals, Cowboys, Colts, Patriots, Steelers, Chargers all going into the year looked like legit super bowl teams.
