Default NFL Titles: Green Bay 12, Pittsburgh 6

Although the Steelers have won six Super Bowls, they still have some catching up to do. Green Bay's 12 Titles is the record. Lombardi was probably the greatest coach in NFL history.

The Pack has won 3 Super Bowls and won the NFL Championship 9 times before the Super Bowl was created.

The Pre-Merger NFL Championships carry as much weight as a Conference Championship today.

This is something that ticks me off sometimes. People say the Steelers have the most superbowl vicotries, which they do, but they don't have the most championships by a longshot. The Browns even have more with 8.

True there were less teams, but no playoffs, so 2nd seed and 6th seed teams like the Packers wouldn't even get the chance to win anything. Even in highschool leagues, there is like 12 teams and there is still some playoff system. There was a 1-8 team in playoffs in pittsburgh once...

But anyways... I think I just watch NFL films too much, I have way more appriciation for the NFL and AFL pre-superbowl era.

I don't care about anything that happened before the SB era. Hell, NE has more SB wins than the '66 or '67 team. The Steelers on the other hand have 6 SBs in the SB era. The league we see NOW was defined by the AFL/NF megerL/Super Bowl era. Anytime before this is labeled as a slight accomplishment when the game was still growing.

Not to take anything away from that, cause they were (and still are IMO) one of the greatest NFL franchises ever, but that's like Detriot Red Wings fans bragging that they've won 11 Stanley Cups (when 7 of them were won with 6 teams in the league).

We all know it, and we all know the teams were really good then, but it's much harder to win a Lombardi than it was to win an NFL Championship.

Especially the ones that were "won" based on having the best record in a 12 team league before a championship game was even played over the likes of the Minneapolis Red Jackets, Staten Island Stapletons and the Frankford Yellow Jackets.

No argument with the Lombardi claim, though.
