Today's NFL is a much different creature than the one in the 1970's. I don't think it is even possible in the salary-cap era to repeat 3 times.
You are only as good as the players you have. I agree it is much harder to keep a nucleus of good players together now than before. All you hear now is cap,cap,cap. That is why good coaching now is more important than ever. It is also why most games are much closer than before. Cap concerns make teams more equal in talent.
