    The Dan Marino Dolphins never won a Super Bowl, and Manning's Colts have only one despite Manning supposedly being the greatest in this generation. It happens. You could be Buffalo and go to the Super Bowl four times in a row and never win. LOL

    When I notice stuff like this it makes me feel a little less nervious about the Texans realizing that sometimes the football gods just thumb their noses at teams.

    Manning and Maddux is a good analogy, they're both the greatest players of their generation at their respective positions in their respective sports.

    Let's see. Cowboys won 5, San Francisco 5, Pittsburgh 6, New England 3, Denver 2 and there are probably others that have won more than one, but subtracting 15 from 44 leaves only 28 teams to win a Super Bowl. Not bad in my opinion.

    LOL, Fixed it!
