Default Of the 4 Championship Game Losses, had we won, how many titles do you think we have?

1994 - against the 49'ers
1997 - against the Packers
2001 - against the Rams
2004 - against the Eagles

I think we would have had 2 more than we currently have. I think the 49'ers would have beaten us and I think the Rams would have beaten us.

I think we would have beaten the Packers and the Eagles.

Let's not burrow in the past. At least it's a good way to pass the time during this awfully boring offseason....

I think we would have lost to the Niners, but won the other 3. The Packers got run over at will by Terrell Davis and considering that the Bus was truly in his prime at the time, he would have done the same. The Patriots' D punched the Rams' offense in the mouth the entire game throwing them out of sync. I think our defense was even more physical than the Pats' at the time and would have done the same. I think we would have beaten the Eagles mainly because McNabb has a long history of choking under pressure.

I struggled with the Rams game. Mainly because of Marshall Faulk. That kind of back...like a Thurman Thomas...always seems to give the Steelers fits. I agree, I think the Steelers defense was better than the Patriots at every position other than the CB's. Scott and Washington would have had fits with Bruce, Holt, and Proehl.

True, but IMO, our running game was far superior to the Pats' at the time as well, and as such, I think we would have adopted the same strategy employed by the Giants in SB XXV against the Bills' "K-Gun" offense (when the Giants offense kept the ball for FORTY+ minutes of the game) - keep the ball on the ground, eat up clock and keep the ball away from the Rams' offense.
