  1. At the time of the merger, the NFL had 16 teams. 

  2. You're right, but the AFL &  NFL had agreed to the inter-league World Championship Game Championship, which was played from 1967-1969 and retroactively re-named the Super Bowl. The winner was viewed as the seasons champion.

    What does equipment have to w/anything? The Flyers didn't wear helmets when the won the Stanley Cup. 

  4. I'm 66 years old and have seen all of the Super Bowl Games. The difference between the NFL Championship games in the early '60's and the Super Bowl was nil. 

  5. THe 3 NFL Championships we the Eagles earned.

  6. Internet clicks don't matter to me. If you'll read the article, I'll email it to you. Getting our record correct is my motivation. This project began w/my Dallas loving brother-in-law congratulating me for our first Super Bowl. It was followed with "you just need 4 more" [to be among the elite. At which point], I educated him about our previous 3 NFL titles. I further told him that the NFL is the only major sport, including golf and tennis, that wiped the slate clean in a well established league with 16 teams prior to the AFL merger. MLB had 16 teams in 1960, the Flyers title was in a 16 team NHL and Sixers '60's title occurred in a 10 team NBA. Those titles made me a lot Philly fans very happy, as did those 3 "who cares" titles. 

  7. Thanks for your input. The caps were for emphasis, not yelling at anyone...except the NFL. Hope you review my article.
