Now that the New Orleans Saints have made their first Super Bowl, the list of teams that have never made it has shrunk to just four: the Browns, Jaguars, Lions, and Texans.
While the Jaguars and Texans are relatively new teams, the Browns and Lions have been part of the NFL since before the term "Super Bowl" was even coined.
If New Orleans can make it after years of being a punchline, then any team can.
Just four years ago, the Saints were homeless and among the worst teams in the NFL. Now, they are preparing to battle the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.
Take heart Cleveland, Jacksonville, Detroit, and Houston. Things may not be as bleak as they seem.
