Well, you could say different teams in the sense of specific years, or in the sense of groups of players.

I think the general consensus of NFL historians is that the best team to not win (or even appear in) the Super Bowl was the '76 Steelers; that may have been the best Steelers team of the dynasty years, better than any of the teams that won.

Otherwise my choice personally for best season without winning it all is the '75 Raiders.

As far as groups of players, IMO the Jim Kelly Bills teams were the best to not take it all. They had a great string of appearances with a couple heartbreaking losses. It was their fate to not win it.

Gotta agree with the 76 Steelers....But the Bills of the 90's have to be considered...to get so close...even within a missed field goal...and not get one win in 4 tries...gives them some consideration...and a GREAT deal of sympathy.

They had some GREAT players in:

Jim Kelly ( HOF'er and 4 time pro bowler)

Thurman Thomas (AFC rushing leader in 90, 91, and 93.... 7 Pro bowls ..and NFL MVP in 1991.)

Andre Reed (selected to the Pro Bowl in seven consecutive seasons... fifth in total career receptions with 951, sixth in total career receiving yards with 13,198, and tenth in total career touchdown receptions with 87.)

Bruce Smith (Pro Bowl from 87-90 & 92-98. 1987 Pro Bowl MVP. NFL Defensive Player of the Year 90 & 96 ....200 sacks, 2 interceptions, 33 forced fumbles, and 15 fumble recoveries)

It is my completely Black and Gold biased opinion that the best team never to win a Super Bowl was the 96 Pittsburgh Steelers.

their 2 sb losses gave the young dallas team all the confidence in the world to know they could beat them. many fortunes couldve been changed if the bills pulled out that 1st one.

the bills are definitely champions in my eyes.

'76 Steelers,if Harris or Bleier had been healthy,we would have won that game and gone on to win three consecutive Super Bowls which would have giben us a total of 5 when the dynasty ended.

As for a team that has never won the Super Bowl,I'd have to say the Bills...so close 4 times but never won it.Freaking Norwood!
