    My least favorite Super Bowls.

    Matchup of original NFL teams.

    Much prefer orig NFL vs orig AFL matchups.

    The last Super Bowl was an old NFL team -Colts - against an old NFL team - Saints.

    I left out the Browns. also went from the old NFL to the AFC.

    If the Jets hadn't whupped the Colts in SB3, and the KC Chiefs whupped the Vikings even more in SB4 (a real azz-kicking - remember Hank Stram making fun of the Vikings) there never would have been the merger.

    Still hate when orig NFL teams in the AFC make it to the Super Bowl.

    Super Bowl 4 was what really established the AFL - caused the merger.

    Coulnd't call it a fluke like SB 3.

    Hank Stram called the Viking pass defense "a Chinese fire drill".

    For about 5 years - the Chiefs and the Raiders were the best teams in football.
