NFL Dynasties: Creating the Blueprint for the Future

Every team and fanbase across the NFL would love to win a single Super Bowl. For most teams, the thought of a dynasty is beyond what most teams could wish for.

In the NFL's 45 years of Super Bowl, there has been a dynasty in each of the four decades. In the '60s, the Green Bay Packers owned the original Super Bowls to the tune of having the trophy named after their head coach, Vince Lombardi.

In the '70s, the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the Steel Curtain, ruled the NFL, winning four Super Bowls in a span of six years.

It was the San Francisco 49ers in the '80s that owned the decade, with one of the most prolific passing combinations of Joe Montana to Jerry Rice.

The Dallas Cowboys took the birth of true free agency to own the '90s, complementing the Big Three of Aikman, Irvin and Smith.

In the early part of the '00s, the New England Patriots, with fifth-round pick Tom Brady, were crowned the NFL's newest dynasty by building their team through the draft.

There have been many great teams that have been sprinkled through those seasons, but between those five teams, 22 of the possible 45 Lombardi Trophies are owned. If you look at the losses, there were another nine Super Bowl appearances from those teams.

If you look at some of the teams that have never won a Super Bowl, how would they construct a team that could not only be competitive and Super Bowl Champions, but become a dynasty in the NFL?

Here is the blueprint that every team can follow to become a dynasty in the NFL.
