To whomever said the Steelers are the greatest team in the whole NFL existence... I'd have to disagree, and I'm a Steelers fan. The Steelers in the pre-superbowl era were TERRIBLE. I mean HORRID. I mean OH MY GOD were they bad.

The Packers and then the Browns were the greatest pre-merger NFL teams, hands down. Of course back then the whole league had less teams in it than each conference has today. It was a different world. But the Steelers were probably one of the WORST teams of the era. In fact, the best thing you can say about the Steelers from 1933 to 1970 is "well, at least they didn't go under."

Greatest team of the Super Bowl era? Certainly. I believe we have the best winning percentage of the era, as well as, as well all know. SIX. :)

So? There really isn't any fair way to compare the "old school" era with today. You're almost talking about two different sports. That's where the argument stops working.

It wasn't just different in the early days of footbal, it was unbelievably different. Compared to today, things were completely disorganized, and the threshold you had to clear to set yourself apart from the rest was laughably low by comparison. Anyone or any team who was even decent by today's standards would have cartoonish levels of success that there is absolutely no hope of duplicating against anything like a high level of competition. I don't think things were even in the same ballpark until the late 1950s-early 1960s.

It's laughable that you guys are trying to make this argument.

The Colts are the team of the decade.
