Ranking the Most Mediocre Quarterbacks to Win a Super Bowl

Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl without being a super quarterback.

Today's NFL is considered a quarterback-driven league. Most football "experts" argue that a team can't win a Super Bowl without a franchise quarterback.

While that may often be the case, history proves that it is possible to win an NFL title without having an elite quarterback.

Here is a look at seven non-franchise quarterbacks that were able to lead their team to a Super Bowl victory.

In most cases, the teams that won without franchise quarterbacks had great running backs and/or a dominant defense. But at times, these non-elite QBs played well enough over the course of a game or even a season, to lead their team to victory.

While these quarterbacks had their moments, none of them will be getting into the Pro Football Hall of Fame without purchasing a ticket.

Feel free to comment on any quarterbacks on this list or on any additional signal callers you feel belong on this list but were omitted. As always, state why you feel the way you do.
