Here is a list of QB's that have taken their teams to a Super Bowls since 1999. 

From 1999 to 2009 there have been 145 QB's Drafted by NFL Teans which includes McNabb.

The following is a list of QBs' drafted over the last ten years that have played in a super bowls. I did not counting Kurt Warner becasue he was not drafted.

Tom Brady

Donovan McNabb

Rex Grossman

Ben Roethlisberger

Eli Manning.

Drew Brees

That is it. 

Tom Brady and Brew Brees are the only QBs who where drafted in the last ten years that where not  first round draft picks that did lead their teams to SuperBowls. Note that Brees was the 32nd and the second QB taken in the draft while Kobb was the third QB taken and the 36 player taken.   

Thus before we give way McNabb and hand over the ball to Kobb we should realize that of 145 QB's that have been drafted over the last ten years, that only Six have gotten their teams to Super Bow and of the Six, Four where First round draft? That it took Drew Brees nine years to make it.

Kobb is not the quick fix, before we hand Kobb the ball we need to fix our defense and offensive lines.

McNabb gives us the best chance to win while we work on rebuilding our offensive line and defense. McNabb is not the problem, history tells us it takes 45 players and the ball taking the right bounces at the right time to get to and win a super bowl. How else do you explain a Rex Grossman.
