Naming Tebow and Sanchez? please they are poor QB and as I said poor QB can lose you a game. Guys like Brad Johnson and guys like Trent Dilfer played good ball they made few mistakes and their teams won.
Unless you've been following the game for only a few years it hasn't changed much but if you've been following it since the 70's it's changed a lot. The NFL was 4 yards and a cloud of dust back then. The rules are night and day different today than they were back then. Just look at the numbers QB's were putting up in the 70's compared to today. How can you say the game hasn't changed much when we're seeing 5000 yard passers today?
It's common in todays game to see QB's pass for over 4000 yards even rookie QB's are hitting the ground running putting up numbers that not even some HOF QB's of the 70's ever put up. And you say the game hasn't changed much???
Guys like Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer were bus drivers during a period where bus drivers could win a SB if they were supported by a running game and a great defense. All they were asked to do was not make mistakes. They weren't asked to win games just don't lose them.
The 2000 Ravens had one of the greatest defenses in NFL history that's why they won with Dilfer who was released after winning that SB. Brad Johnson's Bucs defense was putting up more TD's than he was.
Johnson was the last average QB to win a SB and that was 10 years ago. The QB's who've won SB's since are potential HOF QB's Brady, Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers ....Case closed!
