Is there any Super Bowl winning team that you feel didn't deserve it?

Has there been a team that won the Super Bowl that you feel got lucky or just went on a good run in the playoffs, and didn't deserve to be named "champions"?
any super bowl that the raiders or cowboys won was undeserved.

Not really. When the Ravens won with Trent Dilfer, they had a great defense. When the Bucs won with Brad Johnson, they had a great defense.
Gruden's Tampa Bucs.

although having one of the better defenses the NFL has ever seen, they lucked out when they were matched up against a Raider team that used the exact same playbook Gruden wrote and used the year before when he was the head coach of the Raiders.

The Steelers against the Seahawks. They also got some help from the refs against Arizona but it was nowhere near as bad as the Seahawks game.
the Patriots when they beat the rams.

the Patriots when they beat the panthers.

The Patriots when they beat the eagles.

But that team was good when Tony Dungy was running it. Yes, they got lucky with Gruden knowing everything about the Raiders but they were still a great team, minus the QB position.

True but watching the Raiders get annihilated was exciting. Was happy to see players like Sapp, Lynch, Ronde Barber, Brooks, and Simeon Rice get their rings.

this is really the one SB that I have personally seen that I think had a somewhat unfair outcome. But, in general, I don't think any SB champ is really "undeserving." It takes a lot of skill and luck to win any football game, and the one who ends up champ has to have both. What makes football great is that what "should" happen doesn't always happen.

Winner!!!!!

I was going to school near Portland around that time, so it was still great seeing all the Seahawks fans' hearts break collectively
Rule: Start a thread, answer it.


I think if a team won it, they deserve it. However, the Steelers sure got some referee help against the Seahawks.

SAINTS.

You don't deserve s**t if you don't have a defense.
