He did have two in 58 and 59. The Colts won another championship in 68 but Morrall was the QB for the vast majority of that season. And they lost the SB to the Jets.
Here is, in the opinion of many, either the greatest or 2nd greatest QB of all time and most base that on actually watching the guy play including calling his own plays. Which brings us to the story of Manning who also runs his own offense. I don't think the overwhelming majority of people here understand that importance of any of that.
Teams win championships and QBs are particularly important for that but not the only thing. Obviously the more championships the easier it is to consider them 'great'. But there's more to it than that. And that's how many many people who put people in the HOF and others who lend their expertise in other ways feel evaluation is multifactorial. So maybe the whole thing is just not as simple as how many or how few championships you won.
