Not all Super Bowl champs are created equal. Some, like the 1985 Bears, with Walter Payton, William Perry and Jim McMahon, were a picture of dominance on their way to winning Super Bowl XX. Other teams like the 2001 Giants, Super Bowl XLVI Champs, backed their way into the game after a middling regular season.
