Hey, lots of teams can't even gear it up for the Super Bowl based on their performance (I'm thinking of the Falcons, the Raiders, and the Eagles in recent times). Pittsburgh's Super Bowl performance wasn't among the most overpowering in league history, either. I'm not going to start running the officiating smack on you because I think that crap is unfair. The point is still there to be made that it wasn't exactly Niners over Dolphins territory.
