Default Parity in the NFL???

I counted eleven teams that combined have won 34 out of 40 superbowls.

Pittsburgh-5
Dallas -5
SF-5
NE-3
Raiders-3
GB-3
Denver-2
Wash-2
Giants -2
Dolphins -2
and Baltimore two different teams -2

Is this really parity??? Not that I care as along as we`re great!

With the introduction of the salary cap and free agency you'll see more of a movement towards parity in the NFL. Most of those superbowls came from dynasties created prior to the salary cap.

Sort of, Al Davis moved his team back and forth so much that his were two different cities I think!

True my Bengal friend. But even in the free agency era. The Cowboys have 3. The Pats have 3. The Broncos have two. Thats 8 among three teams dating back to the early 1990's when free agency was introduced.

Yes they were. The Raiders last Super Bowl win was as the L.A. Raiders so Uncle Al did win Super Bowls in two different cities.

It's just more of a reflection of organizations that manage the salary cap well along with great ownership, general managers and coaching staffs.
If you notice another thing that consistant franchises do(The Steelers have always been ahead of the curve)is replace talent with more talent. When one player leaves they just plug in someone else that is equally productive to fill the void.

Yes the Steelers have always been ahead of the curve. Thats one of the biggest reasons we have had only 3 lossing seasons under Bill Cowher. Look at all the free agents that have left and us and to always be playoff contendars and some years legit Super Bowl contendars we are lucky to have an organization like the Steelers to keep us respectable.

Very nice post by the way.

My own understanding of the situation is that the salary cap and FA era allows the potential for more teams to be competitive on a regular basis.

The rules for success have changed, and it is the teams who are quickest to work out the formula for success that are the ones who are going to prosper.

The Patriots have clearly adapted the best to the new requirements, the irony being that they have used the Steelers franchise to model themselves on.

The Steelers were the second most succesful team, but needed a quality QB and a coach who became slightly less predictable in order to put them over the top and translate this success into an actual ring.

The Eagles are another team who has been consistently successful in the FA era, but suffer from playing in the weaker conference.

The Colts are the head scratcher - they have loaded one side of the ball with talent and salary cap space and basically neglected the other half (apart from DE's with one trick spin moves) of the team.

Which, I guess, brings us back to one of the few constants of the Superbowl era - offense may give you a healthy regular season record, but 'D' is what wins rings.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I get so pissed when people say the Steelers are following the Patriot's model when it's the other way around...the Patriots just happened to be the first to win a Super Bowl (and ended up with 3 of em) using the model.
