    Was having this discussion the other night with some people, and I'm sure it's probably been touched upon here, though I'm not sure it's been thoroughly dissected.

    Group consensus was Rex Grossman, though we weren't too educated on the abilities of pre-1980s quarterbacks.

    Woodley for Miami.

    I'll take Grossman over Dilfer.

    Hell no.

    Norris Weese was the worst to play in it. The guy he replaced in Super Bowl XII, Craig Morton, played the worst.

    Ferragamo went into halftime leading against the 1970 Steelers.

    OK, after a quick look at the stats, Dilfer clearly had the better career than Grossman, although I would argue that Grossman had a better season the year the Bears went to the Super Bowl than Dilfer did the season the Ravens won it.

    David Woodley retired that trophy decades ago. And it isn't even close.

    Dilfer made a Pro Bowl. Grossman, as bad as he can be, has had some light-it-up games (especially in his SB season). Ferragamo had two 3,000-yard seasons.

    Woodley's career stats: .538 pct., 48 TD, 63 int. In his best season, he threw for 2,470 yards, .522 pct., 12 TD, 13 int. Oh, yeah, and ran for 272 yards and four TDs. That's as good as he ever got.

    Career passer rating of 65.7.

    People forget how good Grossman was at the beginning of that Super Bowl season.

    Weese was worse.
