It would be more interesting if you would include NFL Championships prior to 1967.

Then I'd have to change the name of the thread. Why just NFL Championships and not the AFL Championships?

I never understood why pre-Super Bowl Champions are never counted. It works for me as a Steelers fan, but it is unfair to Green Bay, I must admit. Still, interest list, especially for Detroit who have been around for so long.

The Detroit Lions have won Four NFL Championships: 1935, 1952, 1953 & 1957.

The Chicago Bears have won nine NFL Championships but eight of them were pre-merger.

The above statements are why I think the NFL should count pre-merger championships. The NHL, MLB, and NBA all recognize and celebrate all of their champions, and those games have evolved just as much over the years.

The do count them. But there is an asterisk next to those championships, just like there are also asterisk's for the pre merger of the NFL with the AAFC. We now determine the NFL champion as the winner of the NFC vs the AFC.

I'm sure that some day if the NCAA ever develops a playoff championship series then there would be an asterisk next to them explaining the difference of how the NCAA determined it's champion in the past and how #1 teams were determined with a championship series.

Let me say once again the title of this thread is "SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS ".

Narry,Nah, You did ok with it.[ahh reminds me of those asskickens the bengals got by the same team twice] Yer team,right?

I think both SF and Cincinnati far exceeded the expectations of people, as did Denver. Maybe the same could be said of Detroit but I think people were thinking they had a good shot to make the playoffs. Your Bengals are sitting in a good position with the draft picks you will get from Oakland to make some major improvements, that is if the Bengal management doesn't screw things up, the worse thing your team could experience right now is if Cincinnati did something stupid like hiring Matt Millen as their GM. It is not out of the realm of possibility that they could meet again in the Super Bowl, soon. I know I'm already excited about 2012 to see which teams make the good or bad decisions in free agency and which teams do well in the draft.

I think The Bengals are going to give the Steelers and Ravens a run for their money for a good many years to come. They are aging, but the Bengals are young and good. The Browns may be very good too with so many high draft picks in the last few years, and McCoy is a heck of a good QB. The torch may be passed soon in the division.

And what have they done since the Super Bowl?I have nothing against Detriot I'd like too see them,and the Browns,get too and win a SB,we got 2 chances,but phuced itup.

When the Cleveland Browns and the San Francisco 49ers were part of the AAFC, 1946-1950 the Browns dominated that League winning all 4 championships, I'm not sure the NFL recognizes those championships just like they don't recognize the statistics of players that played in the AAFC that would later join the NFL, only 3 AAFC teams merged with the NFL- Cleveland Browns, San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Colts- the colts folded shortly after and then were reborn as the Baltimore Colts again and then the Indianapolis Colts. On the other hand all the players stats and team championships from the AFL are in the record books of the NFL. All of Y.A. **** passing records pre 1950 with the Baltimore Colts are not recognized by the NFL while Joe Namaths records with the AFL New York Jets are recognized. Life isn't fair. You don't hear Y.A. Tittle whining about that, last I heard he was still selling insurance up by Half Moon Bay.
