The Lombardi is an uber-exclusive club. You win, and you're in. The hero-worship that automatically gets applied to any QB who snags himself a ring doesn't, however, accurately align with the realities of team-building for long-term competitiveness (and henceforth, Lombardi-winning likelihood) in the league. This is a super-competitive, copycat yet constantly evolving league. Every year seems drastically different than the last nowadays in terms of who and what wins.
