Well, they did miss the playoffs the following season after their last two SB wins in '05 and '08.
With a franchise QB and a solid defense, the team's always got a shot.
I think there is a big difference here. We WON those, leading to a certain degree of arrogance and complacency. The bitter taste of losing one will drive this team, at least I hope so.
Let's also hope that Ben can stay off the motorcycles, out of Vegas hotel rooms, and away from college campuses. I believe he will.
