How do you not grow complacent after winning one, two, three superbowls, and come out with 4 in a span of 6 yrs?

Today's NFL is a much different creature than the one in the 1970's. I don't think it is even possible in the salary-cap era to repeat 3 times.
I would be foolish to argue that the lack of a league mandated salary cap didn't contribute to 4 SB wins in 6 years.
It would be foolish to think that the lack of a salary cap was the main reason for 4 wins in 6 years.
It was certainly a factor, but the factors of coaching, leadership, talent, and personal pride carried more weight.
