#NFL Greatest Franchises

Who is the greatest NFL franchise?

We’ve had 50 Super Bowls now and I feel it is a good time to take a look back at how the NFL franchises stack up against one another overall. You have to have some sort of point system so here goes: We’ll award 25 Points for a Super Bowl win, 20 for winning the Conference or League Championship (Pre-Merger). 15 for Division Championships, and 10 for each time making the playoffs. Since these are team awards then individual player awards are not going to be counted in. As Al Davis once uttered “Just Win Baby”.
