The answer: Not very many. Ten.
Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Joe Theisman, Jim McMahon, Phil Simms and Doug Williams, Jeff Hostelter, Mark Rypien, Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson.
All of those guys played in an era where QB wasn't as important as it is today; the running game was paramount. Since 2004, the rules have been "relaxed" to the point where if you're lacking a Franchise QB or HOFer in waiting, you're not going to win a Super Bowl.
I think it's safe to say that Brett Favre, Kurt Warner, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Ben Rothlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton and Eli Manning will all end up in the HOF someday.
So, by taking all of that information into consideration, I think it's highly unlikely that any team will win a Super Bowl without a potential Hall of Fame QB.
Andy Dalton may prove us wrong but the odds are stacked against him.
The odds are stacked against any team winning a SB...sorry, that's just the way it is.
We should probably find some way to enjoy this team without it winning a SB every season because the odds strongly
suggest that it isn't going to do so. If you win 1 SB every decade, you're well ahead of the game.
What we've done of late has been crap, but there's a hell of a lot of room between crap and winning a SB every 5 seasons. How 'bout we work on building a damn good football team and hope that the SBs take care of themselves.
