Twelve teams have won a Super Bowl since the turn of the century. Another seven teams have reached the Super Bowl during that time period. Twenty teams have won at least one Super Bowl and five more have won NFL or AFL championships before the merger.  Four teams have never reached the Super Bowl.

All but seven teams have won a league championship during their existence. Five of those seven have reached the Super Bowl. The other two are expansion teams. Jacksonville reached the AFC Championship Game with past season, and the Texans are injury-riddled contenders.

To me it’s no fun being a fan if I’m spending all my time hating on my team. Like life, it’s better to focus on the positives than dwell on the negatives. Every year thirty-one teams do not win the Super Bowl. My team reached the Super Bowl the previous season, and had a nice playoff run last year with a flawed team, before losing to the eventual Super Bowl champion. The professionals running the Falcons, who know much more about football than me, want to win even more than I want them to, and will work long hours to improve the team. How can I complain about that? The same goes for every other team in the league.
