Out of the choices available (New York, Green Bay, Baltimore), I'll say the Packers. They are competitive and in the hunt every year. In a quarterback driven league, Aaron Rodgers is a guy you want on your team.

 
I'll take the 49ers. Flukey loss in the semis, nailbiter loss in the finals, have a top QB, a great coach and an organization that seems to be hitting a lot of homeruns in the draft right now.

 
Im going to say there wont be a team of the 20-teens. might not be a 2x champ. SF looks good, but Seattle could easily win that division next year.things change fast in the NFL.

 
SF looks well-positioned to be the team of the 2010s. Giants/Ravens have cap issues; Packers could be up there but they have some uncertainty at WR, RB, and on defense -- are they going to turn into the Marino Dolphins?Agree that Seattle also looks to be very good.Teams like Washington, Indy, Seattle, SF (and to a lesser extent, Carolina) have a pretty big advantage right now: due to the rookie salary cap, they've got arguably the most valuable players in the league.

:shrug:Giants - one SB, two missed play-offsPackers - one SB, two 1-and-done playoffsRavens - one SB, 1 AFC Championship game, one 2-game play-off runRavens have been more competitive since 2010 than either the Packers or Giants.

And they are losing Lewis and likely Reed from the defense...possibly more.This is about going forward.

Great team, Great Coach, Great QB ?Sounds like they are either overrated or the Bills/Losers of the 2010s if you ask me.Giants are already 14 or 15 million under the cap with plenty of dead weight to drop another 10 to 15 million. They are brilliantly restructuring right now which is part of the master plan that went into effect immediately after New Jersey won the bid to host the 2014 Superbowl. They are cutting old and injured players to be replace with youth and depth.Giants have proven that they own SF & GB.
 
Green Bay does have talent and a top 5 QB. Baltimore has a pretty good, young offense but an aging Defense. Giants will pop up every couple of years to make runs. I don't think any of them will be the team of the 20 teens though. I still think we've yet to see the dominant team of the decade. SF has a shot with a young core group and a promising QB. Need to get the first ring though. NE will go down when Brady goes down. Indy may rise again depending on how well they draft for defense. I'd say it would look like this.1. San Fran2. Green Bay3.

2010s - regular season wins to date:

1. San Fran = 30

2. Green Bay = 36

3. New England = 39

4. Seattle = 25

5. Baltimore = 34

6. Pittsburgh = 32

7. Indy = 23

8. Denver = 25

9. Houston = 28

10. Atlanta = 36
Other notables to date: New Orleans 31 wins, Chicago 29 wins and NYG 28 winsNew England is going to be tough to catch. I think GB or Atlanta are the only teams that have a realistic shot at more regular season wins than NE (assuming Brady is healthy for 3 more seasons).

I was looking more at the teams with a shot at being the dominant team in terms of Super Bowls and Championship game appearances.

I think it's funny that people are discussing the 49ers and other non-champs here, when the question was, "Which champ is most likely the team of the 2010s?" Anyway, I will go with the Packers. We have seen how easily defenses in the NFL can go from porous to very good/great, and if that happens with the Packers, look out. They already have the best quarterback in the league, who still has years of his prime to go, so if I am a fan of another NFC team, I am praying they don't fix their defense any time soon. The Ravens will continue to be in the AFC mix every year, but this year was like the perfect storm for them: Ray Lewis' retirement, some unreal breaks going their way (f'ing Rahim Moore :wall: ), Flacco playing out of his mind for the playoff run, etc.The Giants seem to always have what it takes, but underachieve more often than not. Sure, they have won two of the last six Super Bowls, but they have missed the playoffs in three of the last four seasons, and even in the year they won it, they only went 9-7, so they do not look like a franchise that is set to dominate a decade.

 
Here are the amended choices:11 Giants12 Ravens13 Broncos14 Seahawks15 Colts16 Colts17 Browns18 Redskins19 Seahawks20 BrownsI'm going with the Browns since they went to 4 straight superbowls, winning 2. Their 19-0 season the Browns had in 2017 with 5 shutouts really impressed me. Some people could pick the Colts and Seahawks, but we all know who was the best.

 
I don't like any of these teams to be the team of the decade. I'm thinking that team has not emerged yet. If forced to choose, I guess I'd go with NYG.

Sure...and IMO...if we are talking about teams to repeat...it may end up having to be an AFC team right now.Just because I think the NFC is getting stronger.SF and Seattle out West...GB...NYG...even ATL.It is tough trucking to be able to do it multiple times in the NFC right now.
 
I think it's going to be Seattle. One issue that is heavily in their favor is that they only have .3% of their cap space allocated the next two years to their franchise QB (that's three tenths of one percentage which is worth repeating). Many other teams have locked up 20% of the cap to the QB. This brings to mind another team that was able to get a franchise QB very late in the draft; the Patriots. Look at how the Patriots were able to fill out their roster with so much cap room in the 2000s... the team went on to become a dynasty. It's scary to think how much better Seattle can get with so much cap room. Nowadays NFL teams live and die by the cap. Right now, Seattle is living large.

:shrug: there is a high correlation between team's regular season records, and times in the play-offs, and there is an even higher correlation between teams that won championships and those that made the playoffs. Incredibly, every team in the super-bowl era that has won the Super Bowl also, made the playoffs that year.

So if you are looking at teams likely to win Super Bowls, you want teams that are likely to make the playoffs, and to increase your odds here, you want teams that win a lot in the regular season.

Nobody (poll results n.otwithstanding) should confuse the NY Giants as anything other than a 1-year fluke - winning 1 SB while missing the play-offs on either side of that season does not a team of the decade make. Now, if the Patriots come back and win a Super Bowl next year - they would have the strongest argument for team of the Decade - so far.

 
None of them.As much as I hate to say it, the Redskins have the best chance of making a dynasty. So young. So talented. Good coach.

 
NFC Teams I like:I think the Packers are set up to be a very good team for quite a few years yet. They'll have some big contracts to deal with soon, but I have a lot of faith in Thompson to make the tough calls and keep the team a strong playoff contender. They're my pick.San Fran and Seattle will be some fun games to watch for a while. Like what we got to see between Balt and Pitt last decade. Both stayed really healthy this year (1st and 2nd in the NFL, IIRC) which helps a lot, but I think both teams are strong enough to overcome some big injuries, and young enough so I expect to see them continue to improve too. Redskins are looking pretty good to me too. They'd be a darkhorse and I laid some money down on them winning the Super Bowl next year at 26-1 odds. They won the division this year, and IIRC, were 2nd worst in the NFL (Green Bay #32) when it came to the number of games missed by starters due to injury. When this team gets healthy, and the younger guys continue to develop, they're going to be a tough. Never easy in the East though.I like the Falcons over the Saints right now, but agree with others that think Carolina could be real tough real soon. Picking early and often with the new rookie cap rules is going to help tremendously.
