Sixth Sense


Now there can be no dispute. The Pittsburgh Steelers are the greatest franchise in NFL history. Their six Super Bowl titles end the conversation.

Pittsburgh moved out of a three-way tie with Dallas and San Francisco for most Vince Lombardi Trophies and may move well ahead of those franchises in the next decade.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is not even 27 and has two rings, and the rest of the team is young enough to be dominant for a long time. Even the coach, Mike Tomlin, was the youngest to win a Super Bowl.

The Cowboys, meantime, haven't won a playoff game in 13 years and may not anytime soon with the way Tony Romo has crumbled in December. San Francisco hasn't really been in the playoff hunt at all this decade. The 49ers still have many questions at quarterback as well as at other key positions.
