    Looking back at the last 10 Super Bowls. The most average QBs were
    B. Johnson (Tampa)
    J. Dellhome (Carolina)
    M. Hasselbeck (Seattle)
    R. Grossman (Chicago)

    You can make a case for Big Ben, but you have to look back at these passers individual seasons.

    Looking back at the last 10 years by team. I would say that about 50% had a defensive minded team at that time.

    Damn man have you watched the Superbowl before?

    Superbowl Qbs since 1990:
    Very good to Elite QBs: Eli (2), Rodgers, Brees, Rapist (2), Peyton, Brady (3), Warner, Elway (2), Favre, Steve Young, Aikmen (3), Montana

    Nowhere near elite or very good: Brad Johnson, Trent Dilfer, Mark Rypien, Jeff Hostetler


    You can maybe argue the Rapist out of the very good category, but that still leaves the vast majority of Superbowl winners with very good/elite qbs.

    You don't need an elite QB to win a Super Bowl, it's just a whole lot easier being able to go thru 1 player than having to rely on a stout defense, crisp special teams, and a balanced offense. One great player like an elite QB can make up for almost all of that.

    I don't even believe that was Peyton Manning.
