I think Tomlin made the correct move, but taking the safety wouldn't have been that stupid. Taking a safety would mean Ravens would have only needed a field goal to win, as apposed to a touchdown. But, they would have been kicking in the open end of the stadium, a notoriously hard kick to make. During the game Reed had already missed two in that direction and Cundiff had missed one. If the Steelers could force a 45+ yard field goal, chances are Cundiff would miss. Also, I think you have to consider the likelihood of a blocked punt in the end zone.

If you really think about it, if we would have taken the safety by Supulveda running around in the endzone taking up time then falling before contact, then we'd punt it, and they'd be sitting on about 48 seconds. If we got it to the 30-40 yard line their drive for field goal range would be about equal or longer than their touchdown drive, just getting into billy cundiffs range, not to mention he's kicking at Heinz Field. This also could have resulted in them having to rush the kicking team onto the field. I'm not saying it would of been the right idea but really thinking about it, it makes sense.
