The Worst Coaching Mistakes in Super Bowl History

SI.com's Don "Mr. Top 5 List" Banks brings us his list of the five worst coaching mistakes in Super Bowl history:

Don Shula waiting too long to replace Earl Morrell with Johnny Unitas
Mike Holmgren letting the Broncos score
Mike Ditka not calling a play for Walter Payton to score
Mike Martz under-utilizing Marshall Faulk
Marv Levy not trying to get the ball closer for Scott Norwood's field goal

Debates of the Holmgren thing are always fun. I don't think the Walter Payton thing really fits here -- I mean, yes, it would have been nice for him to score, but shouldn't the five worst coaching mistakes all be things that kept a team from winning the Super Bowl? Feel free to add your own nominees in the comments. Thanks to reader Ryan McKeon for the tip.
