The first three was back when the NFL just awarded the Championship to the team that had the best record. So, those shouldn't really be taken into consideration. The next three carry the same weight as having won Conference Championships The 3 SB's are legit, thoughs. So, 7Conference Championships and 3 Superbowl Wins vs 8 Conf Championshps and 6 Superbowl Wins.

Not even that much considering how much smaller the leagues were then. Football wasn't the king of sports it is now back in 50s and early 60s. Baseball was king then not football. So these so called "Championships" mean as much as rollerball championships do now.

It's easy for us to sit here and say that anything won in the 20's shouldn't be taken into consideration. But I respect that those teams still went out with the schedule and format that was given to them, played the game (And i'm sure it was just as hard-nosed smash mouth as ever) and won. We can't take anything away from them

Edit: 30's or 40's when they first played with pads? I don't remember.

I don't think anyone besides Green Bay and Chicago fans give those championships any sort of merit. The AFL didn't even merge yet, had like 10 teams and was a totally different game.

The only thing that matters is super bowl trophies not trophies from 50 years ago from a different league.

Frankly, I'm surprised at how-easily my Steeler-brethren ignore the accomplishments won by those who came before us:
beating the opponent before you is all that can be expected to be done.

this 'poo-pooing' of all things pre-1966 will be no-different than the day in the future when Ms. Goodell has teams in London, Paris, Rome & Madrid, and some girdle-wearing bloke says "what the Steelers did before we were in the League is insignificant"

Welcome - No question the Packers are one of the great franchises

After dealing with the Ravens fans all season and the Jets fans last week it will be a relief to have an opposing team's fan base that has a reputation of being classy and as devoted to their team's record of success as we are to the Steelers
