winning a super bowl with any franchise takes years of development and lots of luck. Small chance times small chance equals really small chance. It'll happen, just it'll take a much larger sample size than 40 years.
There's the right answer.
The beauty of the parity in the NFL is that dynasties are hard to come by, and to last, need personal sacrifices by players involved (see for instance, New England). This makes it so that turning over a bad season is relatively common, but its also become common for good teams to fizzle out fast (Philly anyone?). Put that together with the fact that there have only been 40 SuperBowls and there are 32 teams in the NFL and the probability just says that having a coach go through the process of building a team, getting to the game, and winning is extremely unlikely.
It will happen - its just a question of when.
Oh, and the refs cheated. Did I forget to mention that? (I hope that its been long enough now that we can start joking about this, right fellow 'Hawks fans?)
