It was probably part of the agreement that Art Rooney made last year when talking to Jesus about it. In my head the conversation may have been something like this:
Art: You know Jesus it's been awhile since the boys in BnG have won a title. I didn't complain when you twisted those AFC-CGs in the favor of the...(pause)...patriots. But don't you think it's time that my family get that 5th trophy?
Jesus: Art, I love you like a brother. I know we've had some disagreements about the way you run my team of angels but you're a good man. I'll tell you what, Cowher is going to get his first Super Bowl title...but next year the Colts are going to win it all.
Art: WHAT! You mean Peyton Manning is going to get to hold up the trophy? Oh this is crazy. But promise me that Tony Dungy will still be the coach?
Jesus: Yes, Tony will still be the coach of the colts.
Art: Ok then, Tony is a good Pittsburgh Prodigy from back in the day of Chuck Noll. I guess I can live with that....ok, I agree!
Jesus: Good then, it will be!
Art: But after that, let my boys play the way they know how. We should've already had the 7th ring by now.
Jesus: Don't get greedy Art!
