Six SB's and at least a couple with both packages.

There's alot of history of winning with both.
There is a huge difference in winning a Super Bowl in the 4-3 when your front seven consist of:

LC Greenwood, Holmes, Dwight White, Mean Joe Greene, Andy Russell, Jack Hamm, and Jack Lambert versus Aaron Smith, Casey Hampton, Brett Keisel, James Harrison, Lawrence Timmons, James Farrior and LaMarr Woodley.

I am not downgrading our present day players but the linebacking core and defense lines don't match up. If we have those same caliber players then we could do it but I wouldn't compare our present front seven with the front seven of the 4-3 of old.
