Totally agree on Joe Gibbs. He's one of those sensible, mature people -- who as a coach -- brought a team up out of seemingly nowhere and created miracles, in my opinion. Another guy I saw along the same light was Chuck Noll.

Good post by Colt regarding Noll--speaking of which----

When Chuck Noll took over as head coach, he took over a club that hadn't won an NFL Championship--ever! Fortunately for him he worked for an owner who was highly thought of among his peers and that would be Art Rooney.

Noll slowly and methodically built a club with his top picks who eventually went into the Pro Football HOF; players like Joe Greene, Terry Bradshaw, Jack Ham, Mel Blount, Jack Lambert, and several others. He also organized a top quality scouting department. Like Everwinter said, their championship run was incredible. Through the Rooneys they've given head coaches time to get their programs going. Over the past 50 years they have only had 3 head coaches; Chuck Noll, Bill Cowher, and Mike Tomlin.

Incredible. What are the odds?

Most franchises I believe, have been thru at least three head coaches this decade alone.

I did meet Joe Jacoby once in Virginia a few years after he retired. Seemed like a good dude. As a Fins fan however, I couldn't muster the strength that tough loss in Super Bowl 17 when I was a kid.

They were 44-6-1 with those 3 straight SB appearances.
I think the 73 championship team is one of the five or so greatest Super Bowl winning teams ever. So much hoopla over the 72 undefeated version. Popping champagne bottles, data people like to use to support the claim they were overrated vs that much of that streak was accomplished with a back up QB and having to win at Pittsburgh to make the Super Bowl. However one's opinion, I still believe in the annals of history, if the 72 Dolphins are overrated, the 73 Dolphins are vastly underrated.

Championship? Hell, before 1972 the Steelers hadn't even won a playoff game. Ever. They'd never won a division. The closest they'd come is going 8-4 (their best ever record from their inception thru 1971) and tying the Eagles for the Eastern Division title in 1947. Back in those days, division ties were broken by a playoff. The Eagles won that playoff, 21-0. So, prior to 1972, the Steelers had never even scored a postseason point!

I was keeping in line with the title of the thread--"Modern Era-NFL Dynasty Championship." Yes, I was aware of the 1947 playoff game. Back then, there was no such thing as tie breakers in regards to division winners. If the season ended with two teams tied for first, you played a divisional playoff that next week and of course the championship would be pushed back a week. Doesn't happen often, but happens. In fact, in 1950 it happened again with the Los Angeles Rams and the Cleveland Browns.

I guess on second thought the 70's Steelers have to be pretty close to the Patriots as well. I still give the nod to the Patriots because their dynasty has lasted 15+ years and will probably last to 20 years. And they have countless AFC Championship game appearances during their run. But 4 Super Bowl titles in 6 years is probably something we won't see again or at least for a very long time.

You fail to mention the Buffalo Bills and the The Miami Dolphins. And... the Dolphins eclipsed what the 85' Bears did by being the only undefeated team in history (granted they had the easiest(statistically speaking) schedule in history).
