To me if a team that has won a Super Bowl last season doesn't "defend their championship", they have to get another one if they want to be champs again.

Besides, it's not like the team is a boxer with the belt around their waist that they have until someone takes it away from them.

Its not like they are guaranteed to be in the Super Bowl, they still have to win there way back to it just like every other team. The the Saints(my team) are the champions of Super Bowl 44... they have nothing to do with Super Bowl 45, therefore shouldn't be proclaimed as the defending champs in my opinion. Just like I've said, this isn't boxing, they're no better than anybody else until they are hoisting that trophy up high when the Super Bowl hits triple zeros.

Happens in baseball and basketball too. The hyperbole is just stronger in football because each game carries more importance.
