Many people may not know this but Bart Starr was the first NFL QB to have won 5 championships. People forget that the NFL existed before the Super Bowl era... If one looks at Bart Starr's post season numbers they were quite impressive. Everyone forgets the game after the Ice Bowl. The Green Bay Packers win 33-14 over the Oakland Raiders. This made many people believe that the NFL had a great deal of dominance over the AFL at that time. Little did many know that the mighty 13-1 Baltimore Colts would lose to the NY Jets 16-7 the very next seasaon. And the very next year after that the AFL Kansas City Chiefs beat the Minnesota Vikings 23-7. A game in which many favored the Minnesota Vikings due to the Purple People eaters defense. Though against Kansas City this defense was pushed around quite a bit that day. Led by a Hall of Fame QB named Len Dawson who was also one of the best if his era has well. Many didn't realize just how good the linebackers were for Kansas City. Probably the best LB cores to play the game. Until the Steel Curtain came along in the 1970s.

Dallas would go onto play in a Super Bowl against the Baltimore Colts and lose 16-13 on a late O' Bryan FG. This is the only time in Super Bowl history that the MVP of the game came from the losing team. Dallas Cowboys player Chuck Howley was named the games Most Valuable Player even though his team lost. The Dallas Cowboys would eventually win their first Super Bowl the next year against the Miami Dolphins 24-3 with a little help from a tight end named Mike Ditka.

The Ice bowl game was not a handing off of the torch from the Green Bay Packers to the Dallas Cowboys. However, the Cowboys were the best team in the NFC during the 1970s. Making 5 trips to the Super Bowl in that decade. Winning 2 and losing 3. Wins against the aforementioned Dolphins and a 27-10 win against the Denver Broncos. And a loss to the Colts and two tough losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers 21-17 and 35-31. The Cowboys had great success in making it to almost every NFC championship game in the decade as well.

I've seen quite a few of the videos from that Era. No heaters on the sidelines for sure and no Under Armour! Yikes it would be freeeeeeeezing.

The Lombardi footage is awesome too. There's no doubt as to why the Trophy is named after him. A true Legend!

Within one week, the Chargers went from playing an overtime game in Miami in 88, high humidity weather to playing in the -37 wind chill in Cincinnati, an effective difference of 125.

NFL now uses plastic whistles because of the 67 game. Very cold temp + metal whistle = torn lip = blood = one very uncomfortable official that game.

When I looked at the pictures of that game a couple of years ago, I was shocked at how small the players were. That was the same year I graduated from college and I'm sorry to say my weight has increased along with the averages for the NFL.

I've talked to a lot of people, mostly younger, who insist that championships before they were called Super Bowls aren't as significant. I beg to differ with these people. An NFL championship is every bit as significant as a Super Bowl, that's why it's called a championship. I have found the people who make these claims are usually fans of teams like Dallas, Pittsbugh, and New England...perhaps they want their team to be know as winning more titles than say a team like GB, which has 13 championships, which is far more than any other team. But people will say, "Yeah, but they've only won 4 SBs, so they haven't won as many as Pittsburgh or NE...bullsnort! No team has won as many titles as GB...
