    Overall including before the Super Bowl Packers have 13 championship wins. The most in the NFL.
    But who has the second most? How close are they to that lucky 13?
    Third?
    Fourth?
    Etc.
    Where do the Stealers fit in on the list?

    I tried to look it up but obviously didn't have much luck.
    And by championships I mean the whole enchilada. Not the conference games.

    Packers 13
    Bears 9
    Giants 7
    Steelers 6
    49ers 5
    Cowboys 5
    Redskins 5

    We are NUMBER 1! With the Bears having 4 more SB wins to get on top of us as of now. That is still quite a ways to get to the top. That is also how many more Steelers need to get just to EARN the spot behind GB.

    Serious question, so since you dont count your NFL championships the 2 years you won the SB, does that mean the vikings have 0 championships, or do they (as in the NFL) count that anyway?

    I don't think we count the Vikings Championships. Since the Super Bowl overrides it.

    I believe, and as every Viking fan will tell you, that the Vikings DID indeed win the NFL championship that year. Baltimore won the AFL title. The merger was the following season.
    "... The game was created as part of a merger agreement between the NFL and its then-rival league, the American Football League (AFL). It was agreed that the two leagues' champion teams would play in an AFL–NFL World Championship Game until the merger was to officially begin in 1970. After the merger, each league was redesignated as a "conference", and the game was then played between the conference champions...." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_bowl

    I saw that page before I started the thread.
    I couldn't make heads or tales of it.
    I was looking for a list as Powarun provided.

    Well that's what most people do. However, the problem with that is that would make the Chiefs and the Jets winners of the NFL Championship when they were not members of the NFL. It would be like the Saskatchewan Rough Riders winning the Super Bowl and being declared the the NFL Champions. It's a slippery slope for those four years. For example, the Packer website lists both games. The Jets won a AFL-NFL championship but not a NFL Championship. Technically, the first 4 game that were later called the Super Bowl were between two different leagues who only had one thing in common, the draft. They had separate rules, AFL had the 2 point conversion, years before the NFL adopted it. They had separate commissioners, separate TV contracts, revenue sharing, you name it.

    So, most don't count the last 4 NFL Championships. Just he AFL-NFL Championship. Which was officially renamed after the merger. Done properly, the Packers should be listed as having 15 championships. But that's to messy for the NFL and most NFL fans.

    (Packer fans are happy giving up those two just to make sure that the Vikings don't have one.:))

    Hey I would happily take those two to give the Vikings the 1. Shuts those dang Steeler's fans up & ups our lead up so much that the Bears would have to win 6 more title games just to get near us.

    Minnesota has never won a Championship and hope to god they never do.

    I guess you could count them as "NFL Champions" from 1969 went they went to the Super Bowl favored by 18 points and got totally slaughtered by the AFL Champion Kansas City Chiefs.

    You can't really count a championship when you lost your last championship game of the season. The Vikings were only NFL champions in the sense that they were also the NFC champions three more times in the 70s.

    Here's a good little bit about total championships... The Packers won their 8th championship in 1962, which was the most of all time. Then the Bears won in 1963, giving them their 8th. And then the Browns won in 1964, which was their 8th (4th in the NFL). Then the Packers won in 1965, the last year before the Super bowl, and have had the most pro football championships ever since.

    Well, first off, the Packers have indeed won 13 World Championships. Not 2 Super Bowls, but 4 Super Bowls. "SUPER BOWL" being nothing more than a marketing schtick. No matter the terminology being used ... World Champion states specifically that your team was the best in the game.... I've heard Viking fans claim their phantom NFL championship and it's laughable at best, although, I DID enjoy watching those teams play ... fact is that they were not World Champions, they were beaten by better teams in the last game of the season FOUR times.

    LionsFan... did you know that when the Detroit was granted a franchise in '34, the league required that their ownership be 'sponsored' by a current NFL team. The Lions sponsor was the Green Bay Packers...no kidding. By the way, your guys are playing very well. It's good to see them on the upswing.
