    Brady went 5-2 in Superbowls and was gifted 2 of them (Seahawks and Falcons). He could have easily been 3-4. I would rank Montana and Bradshaw over him both being 4-0. Troy Aikman was 3-0, he should be on the list. Elway went 2-3 in Superbowls losing his 3 games by an average of 32 points, he shouldn't be on the list. Jim Plunkett was 2-0 he should be on there somewhere.

    Here are my top ten Superbowl QB's of all time. Not the 10 greatest QB's of all time but the 10 that won at least 2 rings.
    1. Joe Montana
    2. Terry Bradshaw
    3. Troy Aikman
    4. Bart Starr
    5. Tom Brady
    6. Jim Plunkett
    7. Eli Manning
    8. Roger Staubach
    9. Bob Griese
    10. Big Ben
    I left Peyton Manning off the list because his 2 wins were against Rex Grossman and the Denver defense got him his other ring. His one loss he was completely blown out by the Seahawks.

    I hate Brady. I am not trying to make an argument for him. The cheating in my book leaves him off of any list. However what rock have you been living under Brady is 7-3 in Super Bowls.

    I'm thinking Bradshaw, Ben R. and Neil O' Donnell. Only ones that matter;)

    Always thought Kordell was going to take our guys to the show.

    4. Bart Starr
    5. Roger Staubach
    6. Steve Young
    7. Troy Aikman

    9. John Elway
    10. Joe Namath (He made the AFC legit. If you were a fan then, everyone thought the Colts would stomp the Jets.)

    I saw one of these that actually left Bradshaw off and had Dan Marino on. Couldn't freaking believe it. I told him that just title it "10 QBs I like", not "Top 10 Super Bowl QBs".

    The Joe Namath Jets victory saved the future of the Superbowl. After the Packers blew out the Chiefs and Raiders the first 2 Superbowls the league was talking about cancelling any future Superbowls if the Colts would have beaten the Jets badly. The Jets win also cemented the deal to have the AFL to merge with the NFL. Namath's win was a very historical moment for many reasons.

    I didn't leave him off the list, I had him ranked 5th behind 4 undefeated Superbowl winning QB's.

    I was a big fan of Namath, and the Packers too.
    Hated the Colts.
    So, yes, I remember the lead up quite well. That's why I rank Namath high, even though his career stats were 'ok' he added something to the game.
    And those Jets/Raiders game were pretty brutal. :)

    Not to be a troll, but Roethlisberger was generally below average in Super Bowls.

    Elway had some major clunkers, even worse than Ben. He was 2-3.

    Plunkett deserves to be on the list.

    Warner was 1-2.

    Why no love for Doug Williams? He and the Redskins destroyed the Broncos! People have Namath on their lists. He and Williams have the same number of SB wins....

    Bens spot is cemented because of that drive but otherwise yeah, not the best SB performances. Should need at least two wins to get on the list. I understand why people think Namath should be on there though.

    Meh. 1 SB and faded away to obscurity. Namath win was historic.

    Leaving Ben off is a joke all the while the grocery bagger and holier then thou Warner gets on there.

    Brady is top because he has 7 wins. But 3 losses as well.

    Should be Montana, Bradshaw then Brady, I would have loved to see Brady against the seventy's defenses :lolol:

    Aikman should be ahead of Elway.

    Namath and any QB with only 1 Super Bowl win should not be on the list, IMO. Joe Gibbs was the genius behind the Redskins of the 80's and early 90's. If Williams was so great, why did he disappear after the Super Bowl victory in 1988?

    Also Peyton Manning was a better overall QB than his brother Eli... but Eli was far superior in the Super Bowl.

    People here are clouding their judgment over regular season and playoff performance. We are talking exclusively Super Bowls.

    I dont like Tom or the patriots either, but its crazy he played in 10 superbowls out of 23 seasons and 2 of those seasons not being in were his rookie year and the year Matt Cassel was the qb. Weird to me seeing people saying but he has 3 losses or could have lost others. 10 out of 21 chances making it to the big game will never be duplicated whether the team cheats, the player deflates balls, or the refs help.

    The list is for top ten SB quarterbacks. Not what they did after. Good thing for Namath, except for the surprise win in the SB, he was pretty average.
