NO.  (SD was a powerhouse, but they only won 1 title...and lost like  4 other AFL titles).   1-4 in AFL title game.  Does that constitute a "dynasty"?

I was a die hard NFL (BROWNS) fan back then hey just 1 year older than you -but- had a friend who was a bit "different" sports wise was an AFL fan plus the pirates, etc.  I do remember some just merged in with the NFL like Buffalo, Oakland and the Boston Patriots but I can't place another repeating champion.

I do remember that they did have some high flying football which did attract fans......and Pete Rozelle.

Guess Buffalo and ???? Oakland.

Here is today's Trivia Question.    This is kind of a two parter, but not really.    And this applies ONLY to the Super Bowl era.

A. In the Super Bowl era,  there have been  Four (4)  teams that went from having a losing record the previous season.....to winning the Super Bowl the next year.

B. There have also been 4 other teams  who had a  .500 record  (8-8)  the previous season, to winning the Super Bowl the next year.

Name as many of these sub .500 or  .500 teams as you can.

I will give that to you.  He didn't have one of the losing records, but he did have an 8-8 record in 1981 before winning it in  1982.

Two more  sub .500 teams  left  who went on to become SB Champs the next year.

Hint:  both in 21st century

Three other .500 teams

Hint:  These 3 also all won their SB in the 2000s 

To put it this way:   Prior to 1999  only two previous SB winners went from  .500 or worse to win a Super Bowl.  Since 1999 (Rams)    6 teams went from  .500 or below to win SB the next year. 

Free agency a factor?
