Since your timeline is delimited by the 2005 Steelers, you also conveniently omitted the Colts who played 2 out of 2 playoff games at home in 2006 and ended up winning the SB.

You are also mixing SB winners with non SB winners. If you look at teams that reached the SB but lost it in that same timespan: the Eagles played 2 out of 2 at home; the Seahawks played 2 out of 2 at home; the Patriots played 2 out of 2 at home; the Bears played 2 out of 2 at home.
i almost when i realized i agreed with everything TR just said

there is always an exception to the rule......like arizona last year.......but how beneficial would it have been to have home field advantage against the bears in '06......the game might've ended up differently.....the only thing that would've made this season better would've been a super bowl in the dome.....thats true homefield advantage

It's all about the team itself. Not saying I don't want it, just saying it doesn't mean as much as it used too.
The other thing you're forgetting is that the Steelers and Giants are cold-weather / northeast teams already, so a home game in a cold climate doesn't impact them as much; they're built for it (Plus one of Pit's away games in 05 was in the RCA Dome, and one of NYG's away games was in Dallas, the other in Tampa). Arizona's one road game last year was in Carolina - hardly in the same league climate-wise as Chicago, New York, Pittsburgh, etc in January. If that NFCCG last year were in Philly, it would have been an all-Pennsylvania super bowl.

Who could forget Chicago? But is playing in Philly, New York or Green Bay any better?
