Super Bowl quarterbacks are different, but they’re spectacular in their own way


The list of Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks is staggering. The number of future Hall of Famers is long and apt.

You can start with the first 10 quarterbacks to win the big game — Bart Starr, Joe Namath, Len Dawson, Johnny Unitas, Roger Staubuck, Bob Griese, Terry Bradshaw, Ken Stabler, Jim Plunkett, Joe Montana. For Plunkett—and see how Cap’s feathers once won it.

Some great quarterbacks have never won a Super Bowl. I can’t help but feel sorry for them, no matter what they get paid, no matter how much they earn. Dan Marino, Jim Kelly, Warren Moon and Philip Rivers immediately come to mind. This topic must not be fun for them.

And the hardest part might be that quarterbacks like Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, and Nick Foles have all won Super Bowls. no one suggested

There are currently two quarterbacks preparing to play in Super Bowl LVII on February 12th in Glendale, Arizona. One – Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes – should already be posing for a bust in Canton, Ohio, and the other Eagles’ Jalen Hurts is on the cusp of a potential superstar career. We are on the front line.

No one is arguing that these two players don’t deserve top billing. Each brings the best team in his conference to the match.

“For me, the work is not done,” said Mahomes after the Chiefs defeated the Bengals 23-20 in the AFC Championship on Sunday. “This is not our standard. We want to win the Super Bowl.”

of course. They won three years before him and in three of the last four seasons he has won the AFC title. A second Super Bowl victory would cement the Chiefs as a small dynasty and, of course, guarantee Mahomes’ place as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

For Hearts, who are just entering their third season, the road is different. He’s been on the rise since moving from Alabama to Oklahoma in 2019, but not enough for a second-round pick. The first round pick is who Scout says is stud-in-the-making. Hearts was the wait-and-see type.

And for true competitors, that suspicion is where the chip rests firmly on their shoulders.

Joe Burrow, Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert were drafted ahead of Hearts in the 2020 NFL Draft. All are very good quarterbacks. But the Packers also chose Jordan Love ahead of Hearts to replace Aaron Rodgers at some point.

Don’t think Hertz forgot this.

“There was a time when people said I couldn’t throw a deep ball, I could only throw five yards,” Hartz said a while ago. I will never forget.”

Critics threw for 285 yards with four touchdowns and a passer rating of 140.6 in a 35-13 win over the Steelers in October and three touchdowns in a 35-10 win over the Titans in December. You may remember throwing for 380 yards and a 130.3 rating on the .. all without interceptions.

Hertz certainly hasn’t forgotten that.

Mahomes, on the other hand, is so good that it’s not even clear what he sees on the field or how he’s adapted to it, as if he’s creating a reality with an artificial intelligence platform in his head. You may. His left-handed tosses, basketball throws, laterals, shovels, and writhing bullseye his passes in the process of getting him sacked aren’t for any coach to teach.

Mahomes has passed for 5,250 yards with 41 touchdowns this season. It all started when he threw for 360 yards and scored five touchdowns in a 44-21 win over the Cardinals in the season opener. and so on.

He has an inexplicable talent, the ability to see things unfold in action that the rest of us perceive only as chaos. He has tallied his 1,544 yards and his 23 touchdowns in the last two seasons.

Each quarterback presents unique challenges to any defense. But for those of us just watching this Super Bowl, they offer nothing but good times.
