2 of the QBs left are rookies essentially, though they are playing well, you dont think it's because they have a good defense that has carried them this far? You dont actually consider Russel Wilson and Colin Kaepernick a top 10 NFL QB do you?
Good defense is relative to era.
Both the 9ers and Seahawks have tough physical defenses that, along with outstanding running games, led their teams to these playoffs, while allowing the OC to bring the young QBs along at a pace that they could manage.
But in the playoffs, the QBs have to step up and make plays.
Both Wilson and Kaepernick have done that in their respective games.
I am not ready to annoint either Kapernick or Wilson top 10, though their potential is (or should be) obvious to every observer.
The old adage that defense wins championships in no longer true.
QBs and pass rush win you championships in today's NFL.
