The point is, you can win the Super Bowl with a good quarterback who isn't great. It requires a top-notch team. If you want to win it with a bus driver QB, on the other hand, you need a superb defense and a running game.
You are correct, but that´s something that could happen back in the day, in today´s NFL you´ll almost always need a great QB or at least great QB play in the playoffs and SB (Flacco) in order to win.
