    Interesting stat. And yet, people this year felt the NFC was much stronger than the AFC.

    NFC seems to have more diversity than the AFC.

    I think that's a really neat stat. Pretty amazing on the NFC side.

    The whole goal of the salary cap, draft order etc is to encourage what happened on the NFC side. Really makes what happened on the AFC side truely amazing...it wasn't suppose to happen that way.

    No Jersey Selected

    With the Pats having won 5, Steelers having won 3.

    Also, if NE and SF win Sunday: My prediction from last month of a Thursday night NFL opener, Niners at Foxborough, starts to look pretty good. :D

    Great point. I'm just shocked that in 10 years (and maybe an 11th), that no NFC team has won more than once.

    If the pats and 49ers win this weekend...I will be getting a big payout as they are both down in my bet.

    Good stat, can't see the AFC being much different either anytime soon

    Sad thing for Eagles fans is they had 4 shots at the NFC title in the past 11 years and only won one of them :snob:

    On the subject of who might be playing in Indy in a few weeks (I didn't think this quote warranted a whole new thread), I don't know if any of you saw the article on ESPN about the different possible match-ups for the Superbowl, but a Colts fan wrote this in the comments, and I thought it was kind of funny:

    Niners win would also see the NFC West become the first division to send all teams to the Super Bowl since the 2002 expansion.

    Pretty crazy for a division that during this same time has had two top ten picks in all but 3 or 4 drafts.

    8 Picks in the top 5
    6 picks in the top 10

    Tampa (NFC S)
    Carolina (NFC S)
    Philidelphia (NFC E)
    Seattle (NFC W)
    Chicago (NFC N)
    New York (NFC E)
    Arizona (NFC W)
    New Orleans (NFC S)
    Green Bay (NFC N)

    2001 was before 2002. Just a heads up! NFC South is actually the closest division to sending all their teams (post expansion).

    Still and all, when you think how many times this team of ours has won the AFC East, has been to the AFC Championship Game, and has been to the Superbowl, it is simply amazing.

    Never in my lifetime had I expected to see New England win a superbowl, let alone 3 to date, Now there's a chance for a fourth. If we win and go to the Superbowl this year, that would be 6 appearances in 16 years. THAT is a truly amazing stat, especially when you consider that some teams have NEVER been there. that's more than 1/3 of the superbowls (since 1996) having a New England team present. Every three years. Yeah, I know it doesn't go like that, statistics and all, but work with me here. heck, if we go back to 86 (and those d@mned Bears) that still means 7 appearances in 26 years, (1986 to present) better than once every 4 years.

    A pretty amazing team, I'd say. We are truly living in a golden age of sports here in New England.

    Not far at all! My brother lives in Stone!

    I always like to see Stoke doing well, as long as it's not against Liverpool :D

    Patriots, Steelers, and Colts are the only 3 teams to win the AFC since 2003.

    Have they ever done a SB rematch in week 1? I don't remember it happening.
