  • Superbowl Era Teams that have Won or Competed in Multiple Superbowls

    I was looking up the list of past Superbowl Champion teams and contending teams and noticed something interesting. There have been quite a few teams that have won or competed in multiple Superbowls in a short amount of years. I noticed a lot of these teams have something in common for the most part. All had great QB play (obviously) but also most had great RBs as well. Not just good but most are HOFers. Heres the list:

    Packers- Late 60s- Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor- HOF
    Dolphins- Early 70s- Larry Csonka- HOF
    Steelers- Late 70s- Franco Harris- HOF
    49ers- 80s- Roger Craig- Borderline HOF
    Bears- Mid 80s- Walter Payton- HOF (Added to the list just out of pure dominance)
    Dallas- 90s- Emmit Smith- HOF
    Broncos- Late 90s- Terrell Davis- HOF
    Rams- Early 2000s- Marshal Faulk- HOF
    Patriots- 2000s- Bill B- GOAT

    Its easy to say that RB position is no longer valuable and its not that important, history dictates otherwise. Some will argue that the game has evolved and that running backs are a dime a dozen and you can dont need them to be successful. Looking at the way the NFL is trending and evolving I think you are going to see more teams turn back to Power Running schemes and multi faceted RBs to combat the types of players NFL Defenses are using now. For people to be up and arms over picking a RB who is basically analyzed to be HOF caliber is crazy. I agree if Peyton Manning is there at 2 you take him but im not sold on any of the QBs in this draft in the top 10. I am just excited to see if management can continue to build around some of the amazing talent we have here. Enjoy it while it lasts, it doesnt come around very often.

        The Giants teams had to much space between there contending teams. I would have liked to put them on the list but they didn't make the cut.

          When did the Bears win or compete in multiple SBs??
          Football has been very, very good to us.
          After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
          But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

          # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

          1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
          2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
          3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
          4-New York Giants!!!
          5-NE
          Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                  IMO, The 70s Dolphins were the team that really dominated with just running the ball down people's throats. They won with just smashmouth football & tough defense.

                  During their 3 yr SB run from 71-72-73, their O's run game rankings

                  1971-Miami #1 run team 2,429 yds 173ypg 5.0 ypc 11 TDs
                  1972-Miami #1 run team 2,960yds 211ypg 4.8 ypc 26 TDs
                  1973-Miami #3 run team 2,521 yds 180ypg 5.0 ypc 16 TDs

                  Miami Dolphins defensive rankings in points allowed 71-72-73:

                  1971-Miami D #4 174 PA 12.4 ppg
                  1972-Miami D #2 171 PA 12.1 ppg
                  1973-Miami D #2 150 PA 10.7 ppg

                  Miami Dolphins pass rankings 71-72-73

                  1971-Miami #19 1,983 yds 141 ypg 20 TDs Overall ranks #4 O #3 D
                  1972-Miami #15 2,076 yds 148 ypg 17 TDs Overall ranks #1 O #1 D
                  1973-Miami #21 1,582 yds 113 ypg 17 TDs Overall ranks #5 O #1 D

                  Bob Griese barely had to throw the ball in both their SB wins, that's how dominating their run game & Defense was. D held both Wash/Minn to 7pts each.

                  SB VII Griese 8 com 11 att 88yds 1 TD 1 Int
                  SB VIII Griese 6 com 7 att 73yds 0 TD 0 Int

                  So in my book, Miami in the mid 70s was the definition of run the ball, stop the run, rush the passer. Great run game & great D is a very hard combo to beat.

                    Very good post and thank you for it.
                    I made countless predictions based on analyzing the roster and have a high success rate in making the right predictions for years. I gave Eli tips on how to improve his play in 07. I sent him advice on how to improve his performance in a letter I sent to him before the Giants play the Pats in the last regular season of the 07 Season. He did what I wanted him to do leading the Giants to Superbowl victory.

                        86 90 is too much space 07- 15 is too much space?

                        Tha bears had 22 years but you added them . Your reason for leaving out the Giants is not consistent with your list.

                        But I do get the premise of your post.

                          I added them because of there dominance in 1985 and out of respect for Walter Payton. Had Barry Sanders won a Superbowl he would be on here as well

                            Also the Bears didn't make it to the SB in 1986 but they were very dominant to the tune of a 14-2 record. They were upset in the playoffs by the Redskins. The NFC was crazy good that year. Redskins, Bears, Niners and Giants were all real tough.

                              Mike, he said he just threw them in there as a salute to Walter Payton. He forgot 2 years of Seattle and Marshawn Lynch.
