Top Ten NFL Franchises
The Top TenXW
6 super bowls. 15 afc championship appearances. 8 super afc championships won. 27 playoff appearances. 20 time division champs. By far the best franchise in the nfl. Go steelers!
Love the Steelers, but 4-3 is just not good enough. The steelers are the 5 best team in the AFC, but are 11 in the NFL. The Bengals are 6-0 and are the 2 best team in the Nfl and the Steelers have to win on sunday at home. So excited that there warring the bumble bee uniforms.
They are the best franchise ever. Great players, most championships, lots of hall of famers, best continuous defense (Steel Curtain), and great teams overall - shabookie
The browns, bears, giants and packers have more championships, everyone forgets about the era before super bowl where the steelers suckedV27 Comments
Even though their divisional rivals (Chicago) have the most Hall of Fame appearances, I think Green Bay has the best franchise. Even though they have one less Superbowl win then Pittsburgh, the Packers may be the most feared team of all the NFL. Rodgers and Favre are both incredible quarterbacks and have good receivers to connect to.
13 league championships (4 super bowls). 9 conference championships won. 27 playoff appearances. 13 time division champs. 81, 000 names on the season ticket wait list (with average of 30 year wait). Sold out stadium for over 45 years straight. Owned by the fans. Simply the best franchise in the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers define everything that is good in a professional sports franchise. They will always play outdoors (Like Chicago), wear the green & gold, and enjoy loyal fans win or lose.
Oldest team with the same city, best coach ever, best team everV22 Comments
Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Bill Walsh 5 super bowl rings
While the Steelers have the most SBs the 49ers have been good every decade except for the 70s. The Steelers were only good in two decades and the Packers weren't as good.
Best team ever. Third is an insult. Won super bowl in three consecutive decades. Biggest win in super bowl history, 55-10 demolition of the broncos. Best pound for pound player of all time in Jerry Rice, Montana and young at QB. West coast offense the most attractive and devastating ever. What more evidence do you need!
Best team in all of sports.V6 Comments
Cowboys are second only behind the bears in franchise win %. (But have more Super Bowl than the bears) (oh and the steelers are ranked #14... Just to clear that up. ) they are The most winning team percentage wise in the NFL for the past 50 years. AND the Cowboys are (unlike the Steelers) playing in the toughest and most winning division in football. The NFC East has the record, appeared in 20 of the NFL Super Bowls, have, 12 Superbowl victories, and the Cowboys dominate the NFC East with 20 division championships, 28 playoff births, and 8 appearances. (All records) While the Steelers were able to practically walked into the Super Bowl at all those years, the Cowboys had to continuously play nfc champions 6 times year in and year out. (Eagles have never won a Super Bowl, but to say they're not competitors is stupid) Between the years 1990-1996 the NFC east won 5 out of the 6 Super Bowls! Cowboys won half of those, One of them against the Steelers. Tom Landry, Roger Staubach, America's ...more
troy aikman, emmit smith, tony dorsett, roger stauback, 8 nfc time nfc champs 5 time superbowl champs
Emmit Smith, Troy Aikmen, Michael Irvin, and Roger Staubach 5 super bowl rings
Love the boys or hate the boys. It doesn't change what they have achieved and what they will in the futureV6 Comments
Considering the salary cap challenges, this team and franchise is amongst the best ever. They have the best coach of all time and arguably one of the top 1-3 QB's of all time (Elway, Montana the other two). The downside is that they have an owner Kraft) that threw his QB, team and fans under the bus. He deserves zero respect now for turning his back on all of those who were loyal to him. He should be ashamed of himself and I hope the fans of New England never let him live that betrayal down.
Tom Brady, Randy Moss, and Bill Belichick 3 super bowl rings
Since kraft took over no one is even close coach b has been to 9 bowls
Worst franchiseV16 Comments
This is a joke! The Bears easily should be in the top 5. They were the first official NFL franchise, and they have the second most championships behind the packers. It's absolutely insane they are not even in the top 10!
You don't think they should be in the top 10 they had the highest blow out in NFL history aganist the Redskins for the NFL Championship 72 to 0 and beat the Patriots 42 to 0.
The Bears are one of the greatest franchises in the NFL. They are also the 2nd oldest team in the NFL.
The bears are miles ahead of new EnglandV4 Comments
The Giants should at least be in the top four teams out there. Number 7? Hell no. They have won three superbowls. They had the greatest linebacker of all time in their franchise, coached by Bill Parcells. They have Coach Coughlin. They got the biggest runningback ever in the NFL (Not that it truely matters unless BJ is good which he is). They are at least one of the top four or five best. And the Redskins? Over the Giants? HELL NO.
GO BIG BLUE ELI TO TYREE NUFF SAID
FUTURE HALL OF FAME PLAY
They won four Super Bowls, not three. And they've been to five!
But they did get those "lucky" catches and they did win!V5 Comments
One of the best owners in the League great players and great fans. And could win another Super Bowl in 2014 with Peyton manning
Since they won yet another SuperBowl with one of the best defenses ever, they deserve sixth or seventh.
John Elway and Terrell Davis 2 super bowl rings
2-5 SBs that is great best franchiseV5 Comments
Howie Long, Marcus Allen, Ted Hendricks, Tim Brown, and John Madden 3 super bowl rings
No other franchise has had success from the early 1960s all the way to the early 2000s. The Raiders have some of the most famous players and coaches in nfl history. Al Davis, John Madden, Dave Casper, Gene Upshaw, Art Shell, Marcus Allen, Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Fred Biletnikoff, Ray Guy, Howie Long, Jack Tatum, Ted Hendricks, Sebastian Janikowski, and Shane Lechler are ALL Hall of Famers who have played or worked for the raiders! JUST WIN BABY!
Iconic most storied amazing franchise number 1 in my books maybe behind greenbay. Dallas and oakland my number 1sV2 Comments
Easily the best franchise to never win the Super Bowl (though they have won a championship in 1969). 1998 team was the third best offense of all time, the purple people eaters were one of the greatest defenses ever. If it weren't for pure bad luck the Vikings would have multiple rings, (Gary Anderson's missed field goal in 1998, getting cheated out of the big game in 2009 by the bounty gate saints, etc.
Purple People Eaters were one of the best defensive units of all time. Went through a rough patch, but are on the up and up again. New ownership may have finally gotten it together.
Moss, Carter, and fran! No one betterV4 Comments
Dan Marino, Mark Clayton, Mercury Morris, and Don Shula 2 super bowl rings 17-0 season
Only undefeated team. Won back to back super bowls. The Vikings (who are ranked 10 as of May 17 2015), I belive have never won one a super bowl, let alone been to one. Fins have many HOFers and Marino has set standards high for passing records before passing was a big deal. You ask me, Fins are a top ten franchise.
The Dolphins should be higher they have had one of the best quarterbacks ever,Dan MarinoV3 Comments
the largest stadium, the history, band, fight song, hall of famers, quarterbacks, revenue, 3 rings, 2 championships, all the division championships, nfc championships, and hall of fame coaches, the hogs, come on! how much more do I have to mention for them to be in the TOP 5 and get the cowGIRLS outta there?
They are an AMAZINg story always winning when no one had any hope it's like a fairy tale they're just so inspiring and the most influential team ever with amazing fans
THE SKINS ALSO WON OTHER NFL CHAMPIONSHIPS BEFORE THERE WAS A SUPERBOWL.
Joe Theisman, John Riggins, and Joe Gibbs 3 super bowl ringsV1 Comment
We have only been called the Baltimore ravens since 1996, and we have already won 2 superbowl rings, already have a player who played on the ravens for his intire carrer into the hall of fame (plus 3 more who played on the ravens, as of 2013) Ray lewis and ed reed are future hall of famers. We also have one of the best defences of all time! I think you may have heard of the 2000 ravens, we only alowed 165 points in a 16 game season! (which is a rocord for fewest points allowed in a 16 game season. And we also had to deal with stricter rule changes then the 70's steelers, the 76 raiders, and the 85 bears, and we still got it done! So The Baltimore ravens shouldn't be number 20, it should be #1!
This one of the most senseless rankings I've seen. It's just fans voting for their favorite team.. Like I did
The Ravens should be ranked way higher, maybe not top 5 but this survey is ridiculous.
They are behind teams that have never won the superbowlV2 Comments
Johnnie Unitas, Peyton Manning, and Marvin Harrison 2 super bowl ringsV2 Comments
The suck, bunch of losing seasons in their history, and not just that, the fans players are big mouths!
The eagles might not have the rings to show for it but they have had amazing years, and more to come.
I'm a eagles fan but this team is not that good - Top10ennerV2 Comments
Young franchise and they are already doing better than franchises that have been here for decades
Most dominant defense in nfl from 12-15 been to 3 super bowls. Russell wilson
