I'd love to see the following Super Bowl matchups: Bills vs Vikings, and Browns vs Lions.

I've said for years that if there is any justice in the football universe, the Bills and Vikings will someday meet in the Super Bowl. Then again, that game would probably end in a tie!

The most complete team on iknowfootball's list is the Panthers. Have the QB, and have the Super Bowl experience. IF the Texans can get a QB I'd put them above the Panthers on the "first team to win a Super Bowl" list. Have a young crop of WR's in Hopkins & Fuller. Have the defense to win championships, so if they can ever get/develop a QB to get those young receivers the ball and put up points, they could be a SB champ in the near future.

Working backward through recent Super Bowls, a new-win team has appeared in 14 of the last 23 Super Bowls. That's quite frequently.

51: Falcons
50: Panthers
49: (no new-win team)
48: Seahawks (who won their first!)
47: (no new-win team)
46: (no new-win team)

37: Buccaneers (who won their first!)
36: (no new-win team)
35: Ravens (who won their first!)
34: Rams (who won their first!)
33: Falcons
32: Broncos (who won their first!)

Seeing as half those teams didn't win.. Not sure how you can call them a "New Win" team. And you're counting the Falcons twice and they didn't win either time.

So.. 6 out of 23.

Not all that frequent. Although, probably more frequent in these days of 'parity' than back in the 60's to 80's.

I would go with the Falcons. They have a young defense that has a lot of talent and an offense that can score points.

I think overcoming the taunts alone next year would be a hill too tough to climb

Tougher part might be the schedule. They've got the AFC East and NFC North next year, plus the Seahawks in Seattle and the Cowboys.

Patriots, Packers, Cowboys and Seahawks all in the same year.

That's rough. Though, i don't expect the Cowboys to be as good. the NFC East hasn't had a repeat champion for 13 years now. i expect Sophomore slump from Elliott and Prescott.

Cowboys have some FA issues (like every team), however, they are on the bottom of cap space, in the minus category, I believe. Romo will be the first priority for them, or it should be.

I won;t go with the Falcons next year. The reason is, look at the NFC and who repeats and who does not. In a world of free agency, things change too much from season to season. They will likely do well, but win the big game? no I doubt that just because no one repeats anymore.

Of teams on the list, the Pesky Red Birds may have ha their last chance and disappointed my son who still favors them.

Long term, I would love to be the GM/Owner/Boss of the Browns right now. Sitting on all those draft picks, with just enough talend=t to go about 65 picks, Things should improve there over the next 5 years.
