Lombardi's Packers (technically 3x they won the last NFL championship)
Knoll's Steelers (twice)
So 8x there have been repeat champs. Not common but not as rare as we think. It means 16 of the 46 SBs have been consumed by repeats -- 1/3rd!!!
It's worse in that going back all the way, the Giants have played in somewhere around 20 championship games and have never gone back-to-back... Even the Eagles repeated in 1948-1949.

I really wish they would stop making this an age thing. I know plenty of people around my age that are die-hard fans of their teams and then friends of my folks who will stop watching their respective teams once they reach .350 or some win/loss ratio around there. This could very well be the last Superbowl that the Giants win in my lifetime and I'll appreciate every championship I've been able to witness. The season isn't over but I can understand the pessimism that we are already 0-2 in the divisional games.
Anyway, injuries seem to be the biggest thing hurting this team right now and it's not letting players get comfortable with one another when there are constant changes in the lineup.
