The Buffalo BIlls information is wrong. They have 4 conference championships, '90-'93 and 2 league championships, '64 & '5. Though those were when they were in the AFL.
I dunno why, but I love the Bengal Orage ( 163AF0 )
(Psst. The NY Giants won the Super Bowl THIS YEAR. The info's missing.) But besides that secondary piece of info, great post! I love seeing all the colors and uniforms laid out like this. I'm especially interested in each team's logo. Some of them I find quite beautiful. The Seahawks' logo looks like a Pacific Native American wood carving.
Thanks for the corrections! Let me know if you catch any other needed changes...
fascinating! i never was a sports person though :)
Great, great post .......
Nice to see some different subject matter for the CL blog!

Go Acme Packers!

(Now I'm a Jets fan)
I miss the old Broncos uniforms from the Orange Crush Defense days. After Monday's abysmal defeat to the Patriots Backups on offense, I think their current uniforms make me want to puke.
Minnesota Vikings never won the league champsionship, they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl IV. The Arizona Cardinals were previoulsy the Pheonix Cardinal, St Louis Cardinals ,Chicago Cardinals and Racine Cardinals. And NY Jets were the NY Titans from 1960-1962. Tennese Titans were the Tennese Oiler and The Houston Oilers.
Great post! I'm a huge NFL fan and I find this fascinating :)

I don't want to get technical with you but when you list the Conference Championships and League Championships, you are putting them a year behind.

For instance, Tampa Bay is my favourite team but they won the Super Bowl in 2003, not 2002. The NFL season starts in the September the year before (ie, Tampa won the Super Bowl in 2003 but their regular season was in 2002). Therefore, the NFL always crowns its champions in the following February (or late January, depending on the sunday in which the Super Bowl is played) and they are that year's winner.

Other leagues like the NHL and NBA, which split their schedules between two years (ie the 2008/2009 season) lists their winners also in the year they actually won the championship too. Although, in some cases, the champion may be referred to as the 2008/2009 winner.

I know what gilhool is trying to say too... Minnesota has a League Championship listed beside their name but they actually never won. They just appeared in the Super Bowl, losing to Kansas City. I figured this out when I saw the New Orleans Saints... three games played in the NFC championship but, alas, no wins either (sorry New Orleans).

Nevertheless though, a great post and very well done indeed! Way back in 1994 (I think), there was a survey done for every professional sports team in terms of best logo and best colour scheme. I should try to dig it up and post it on here too. I do know the St. Louis Blues won the best logo in all of sports... simple, clean and very identifiable too.
nice greate work thank
I thought Jon Gruden got fired
Worst color schemes: Bengals, Browns, Broncos, Bills, and Bears. Something about the 'B' names?
awesome post!
