How to pick the SB winner? (from another forum)

I am 15-0 in my Super Bowl pics...
Since I am 15-0 in my last 15 Super Bowl pics, I figured I would let you know who is going to win the big game this year.
Since 1991's game where the Giants beat the Bills, what I do to pick a winner is simple:
The team with more letters in their name that has the most letters in the words "SUPER BOWL" has went on to capture the Lombardi Trophy 15 times *!!
Example (last year's game):
Patriots (4) vs. Eagles (3)
# - If tied, then one simply moves to the team's home name (example: New England vs. Carolina) (** - If still tied, then one moves to the last name of the staring QB)
Therefore, this year's game winner will be:
Steelers (4) vs. Seahawks (3)
Green Bay (3)
New England (3)
That was the first one I tried too. So, my guess is this theory is totally wrong.
SB XXX Dallas 27, Pittsburgh 17
Cowboys - 4
Steelers - 4
Dallas - 2
Pittsburgh = 4
Did I count wrong?
What about when the 49ers beat the Chargers
it was actually a pretty interesting theory, until you guys shot it down twice... i guess the guy who came up with it wasnt very thorough
that's 7, unless he's counting by unique letters, then yeah I can see how he got to 4.
4, or 3 unique.
As other posters have pointed out, the math seems to be a little off on prior games, unless we're confused about unique letters and total letters as I've pointed out.
