Past 20 Quarterbacks to win a Superbowl..

This is my first Fanpost, so go easy. I don’t think I’ve seen this info posted before. Let me know if I missed something.

Going back from the last 20 Superbowl winners, I looked to see who the QB was and their draft slot. I was actually astonished to see that 14 of the past 20 Superbowl winners had QB’s drafted in the first round. I did bend the truth a little bit, Brees and Favre were both 33rd overall but that’s RIGHT outside the 1st round .

Year Winner QB Draft pick
2012 New York Giants Eli Manning 1
2011 Green Bay Packers Aaron Rogers 24
2010 New Orleans Saints Drew Brees 33
2009 Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger 11
2008 New York Giants Eli Manning 1
2007 Indianapolis Colts Peyton Manning 1
2006 Pittsburgh Steelers Ben Roethlisberger 11
2005 New England Patriots Tom Brady 199
2004 New England Patriots Tom Brady 199
2003 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Brad Johnson 227
2002 New England Patriots Tom Brady 199
2001 Baltimore Ravens Trent Dilfer 6
2000 St. Louis Rams Kurt Warner Undrafted
1999 Denver Broncos Jon Elway 1
1998 Denver Broncos Jon Elway 1
1997 Green Bay Packers Brett Favre 33
1996 Dallas Cowboys Troy Aikman 1
1995 San Francisco 49ers Steve Young Supplemental draft
1994 Dallas Cowboys Troy Aikman 1
1993 Dallas Cowboys Troy Aikman 1


What does that tell us? I think it tells us that by drafting a 1st round QB gives us a MUCH better chance to win a Superbowl than waiting for a diamond in the rough, free agents that nobody else wanted or pipe dreams of drafting another Tom Brady that comes once a decade. Defense does not winner Superbowls anymore. The rules have been catering to the offense. There were THREE QB’s to throw for over 5,000 yards this season. This is now a passing league.

I for one am tired of mediocrity and never seeing the Chiefs try to make the move to set us over the top. Moving from 11/12 to possibly 2/3 would be a lot cheaper than potentially next year where we stand to do substantially better with many injured players coming back who stand to improve our team a lot.

We are a QB away from competing, how can Pioli not see this? Peyton Manning would be a step foward, but he'd only give us a few years, IF he can even get back to his pro bowl form. Maybe Pioli can grow a pair and make some big moves sometime soon..
