Default Re: Patriots can be king of all eras

That's nice and all, but the NFL was a COMPLETELY different game back then. In the mid-50's, there were only 12 teams in the entire league. To appear in the title game was to win the Eastern conference, which was about as difficult as winning your division in the 70's and 80's (There were 6 teams in the Eastern Conference in the 50's, 5 teams in the old AFC Central during the Steelers Super Bowl runs).

The Browns Championships back in the Eisenhower administration simply don't carry the same weight as those in the modern era.
