Let me know what names I go under and where I am translpanted from. Im curious what your CSI kit will come up with! Good luck!!
BTW, you never retorted my Pre-Cap era, just name called. I don't think your interested in debate, I think you are looking to argue and name call. insecurity for sure.
PS-- 90% agreed with you?? really??? Patriot fans who think the era in which the Patriots won their Super Bowls is harder???!! funny, i bet you will get San francisco, miami, Oakland, and Minnesota fans to say pre-cap era was harder. I wonder why?? OH!! because their teams won duing that era!! Pittsburgh and Dallas won in both eras so their fans arent going to care.
Your argument has one major flaw and you can't even see it. Its all in the way you word things. You want every football fan to respect what the Patriots did from 2001-2004 as the best team ever. That is the sole reason for making the discussion. But you made the mistake by including the era, and NOT comparing dynasties, which was your true intent! With that, the pre-cap era was a more difficult place to win for the 26/28 teams that played from 1970-1992. You are claiming that it was easier for Pittsburgh, Dallas, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Miami in the 1970s and San Francisco, Washington, Denver, Buffalo, and NY Giants in the 1980-90s.
Do you realize that 24 of the 28 teams made the playoffs at least once in the 1970s? Yet 9 teams made the SB: Pittsburgh won 4 SB, Dallas went to 5 SB, Miami and Minnesota 3 times a piece. Being the other 15, it was too difficult. The accomplishment then was a higher achievement, not EASIER!
Take the 2000s 29 of the 32 teams made the playoffs at least once. 14 teams made the SB: New England won 3 of 4, Indy, Pitt, NYGiants made 2 appearances.. 10 one-timers!!! The Cap-era made it easier for more teams to participate in winning.
Your argument is flawed until you compare dynasties, which is a different question. Be careful what you argue, the number don't support your theory.
