A Football History List

The following information is presented in the fond but vain hope it will stifle 99.999 percent of the commentary issued since the final gun of Super Bowl XLIV.

Quarterbacks Who Have Both Won and Lost Super Bowls (Note: Must have played in game).

1. Len Dawson
2. Johnny Unitas
3. Roger Staubach
4. Joe Theismann
5. John Elway
6. Brett Favre
7. Tom Brady
8. Peyton Manning
9. Kurt Warner
10. Bob Griese

The alert reader will note that 7 of 8 of the above QBs are either in the Hall of Fame or certain to be. One of them is always listed in discussions of "greatest quarterback ever," and another (Elway) is always at least an honorable mention. IMO, Staubach is as underrated as a Hall of Fame quarterback can ever be.

My guess is that the interception he threw to Tracy Porter is going to bother Manning for a whole lot longer than it bothers History.

PS: The even more alert reader would be commentator Lance, who pointed out I left Warner and Griese off my initial list. My thanks to him and apologies for the error.

Kurt Warner and Bob Griese also belong on your list. Doesn't really change your point...
