    Should we count Ben Roethlisberger in Super Bowl XLIII because he sucked in Super Bowl XL?

    I think Jeff Hostetler of the 1990 Giants qualifies. Backup to Simms, Simms gets hurt in Week 14, and Hostetler leads them to a Super Bowl title.

    Hostetler counts. Williams I would accept. Plunkett? Sure. But Montana? Brady? No.

    Brady qualifies. We didn't know what was going to follow at that time. Even after that Super Bowl, he wasn't a sure thing long term.

    Trent Dilfer for sure.

    I think the poster who started this debate had a nice caveat with “surprise trip to the Super Bowl.” Was anyone truly surprised that the Ravens defense carried that team all the way?

    Holy shit, the things Mahones shills for. He’s everywhere in this market, plus the national stuff.

    Kinda refreshing that a guy cashes in with State Farm yet also takes care of the fine folks at the Nebraska Furniture Mart.

    The K.C. Star's Sam Mellinger has predicted for a while now that Mahomes will sign the richest QB contract ever in the coming years. I could see that — he's worth it — but, with all his endorsement deals, I could see Mahomes taking a page out of Brady's playbook and signing for less than he could get on the open market to free up money to keep the offense mostly intact.
