The 2007 Pats would have been the undisputed #1 if they had pulled out the W vs. the G-men (*phew*).

The 2011 Pack also blew a chance to make the list (went 15-1 on the heels of their 2010 Championship before getting thrashed by the Giants).[
Agreed 3 Super Bowls in 6 years with 2 wins for the 2005-2010 Steelers is impressive - but that team will always be in the shadow of the 70s Steelers and it is tough for 2 generations of one franchise to make the top 10 (e.g. - the 70s Dallas teams won 2 Super Bowls and appeared in 5 but are not ranked while the 90s Cowboys are)

Share your relief the 2007 Patriots lost
