I could've said the last 3, but the Packers made the playoffs after they won SB XLV. They just got knocked out by the Giants in the divisional round. Even the Saints after SB XLIV, they got knocked out in the wild card round after winning the SB. Recent history hasn't been kind to Super Bowl winners.
3 is still a fairly small sample size considering there have been 48 Super Bowls (6%). These posts seem almost wishful thinking then any real factual impact. If you have been paying attention the Seahawks seem to do the things that people say they can not or will not constantly. Cannot win on the road, cannot win with a short QB, pedestrian WRs, "Bad draft classes", Will not win a Super Bowl, A coaching style that cannot succeed, "Dream Team" "Offseason Winners", on and on and on. To think they will miss the playoffs because of what other teams have done following a SB win is fool hearty. Last time I checked the 2006 Seahawks were the first team in a long time to lose a SB and make the playoffs the next season, they also won the division. If anything one could say Team History proves otherwise when it comes to "Post Super Bowl" results.
