Which do you prefer:
As a fan
As a coach
As an owner
Will want a SB victory and not heartache - Its all the way or no way - Normal responses would be to add one more SB to your teams success even if it means 4 out of 5 lousy seasons - 1 championship to add on is better than none
A coach might not make it to that SB season you speak of and could be fired before then (see Mangini) so he wants consistency
Owners want to make money - Success and wins regardless of SB titles will bring dollars to the pocket - The SB title is just icing on the cake
