Did super bowls I-IV really matter?

They merely were just exhibition games for bragging rights between the NFL and AFL- so was it really legitimate?

    They mattered more than the Super Bowl does now. There were fewer playoff teams, making it harder to make it into the Playoffs, let alone the Super Bowl.

    Yes, it was a pivotal point in professional football history. Some of us old-timers remember how the upstart AFL, personified in Joe Namath.challenged the established NFL. If the AFL was going to survive as an organization and a business they would have to prove they could play with the big boys(Packers,Colts, Giants,etc). Look what happened to the USFL.

    If you are talking about the First Two Packers super Bowls and Namath's Upset, in Super bowl 3, and KC winning super Bowl 4, Think it was Legitimate.

    I think they really did matter, because they set the foundation for the Superbowl games that followed, so yes I think they were VERY important and do matter. Plus it's great NFL history.
