The Pittsburgh Steelers dominated the 1970s era of the NFL. Head coach Chuck Noll and quarterback Terry Bradshaw, along with the famous "Steel Curtain" defense, combined to win four Super Bowls in a six-year span. Bradshaw was named Super Bowl MVP for two of their victories. Noll was also Bradshaw's head coach for his entire NFL career.
#4 - Lawrence Taylor and Bill Parcells, New York Giants
Lawrence Taylor is the only player on this list who isn't a quarterback. That's how special of a talent he was during his playing days. He is one of only two defensive players in NFL history to be named MVP. He helped the Giants win two Super Bowls with head coach Bill Parcells in the 1990s era. Parcells is widely considered one of the greatest coaches of all time.

No duo in NFL history is more dominant than Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. Their dynasty lasted two decades in which they appeared in the Super Bowl in nearly half of all their seasons together. The pair appeared in nine total Super Bowls and won six of them. Tom Brady has since won a seventh Super Bowl with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As both him and Belichick are still active in the NFL today, each searching for more rings.
