Five Worst Super Bowl Winning Quarterbacks of All Time

jim-mcmahon

First let me say that this group is like being the shortest Plumlee brother. Or the Plumlee brother that’s worst at basketball. The list of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks is indeed rarified air. These guys are just nowhere near the elite group of Joe Montana, Steve Young, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, John Elway etc. but this group of five passers does have four total Pro Bowls to their credit.

So here it is, the best signal callers to “game manage” the biggest game while letting their running attack and defenses do all the heavy lifting.

In case you needed any more evidence that the NFL is truly king in America, Super Bowl XLVI is the most-watched television program in U.S. history and the highest-rated Super Bowl in 26 years, according to fast national data released by The Nielsen Company.

The game was seen by a record 111.3 million viewers (6:31-9:58 p.m. ET), topping last year’s 111.0 for Super Bowl XLV on Fox and is the biggest audience to watch a television program in U.S. history. I guess the lockout didn’t hurt interest in the game after all.

Wes Welker “honored” with 8,000 Butterfingers in Boston town square

No doubt the biggest turning point in Super Bowl XLVI was the embarrassing drop by Wes Welker on what would’ve been at least a 30 yard gain, possibly a touchdown, on the final drive in which New England held the lead. Sure, Aaron Hernandez and Deion Branch made some drops, but Hernandez is still developing his game and Branch is extremely mediocre.

Welker on the other hand, had 22 catches more than anyone in the NFL this season, and he’s developed a reputation as the greatest slot receiver in the game’s history. So for him to blow such an easy catch like that, a grab he’s made 100s of time…kind of looked like what you’d see when someone’s point-shaving.

Show off your superior football knowledge is new app this Super Bowl

toldu

Did you ever call a play, or maybe even predict a game score in a college football or NFL contest, and get it exactly right?

You have to left the world know, correct? (By the way, my prediction record in two years of “Brutally Honest Previews” is 44-19, in case I hadn’t told you! And ToldU is a new social leaderboard app that allows users to predict then brag about the outcomes of individual plays of live events. They are really pulling out the stops to make sure that everyone gets a chance to prove they aren’t arm-chair quarterbacks, but they should be standing on the sidelines making the calls instead of the coaches.

Using the #humblebrag Twitter hash tag, and posting on your favorite team’s message boards just isn’t personal enough. It’s too anonymous.

Kelly Clarkson to do Super Bowl XLVI National Anthem

The NFL is hoping they don’t have another Christina Aguilera disaster on their hands this here. I think they have a more professional singer this time, who won’t forget the words (probably)

KELLY CLARKSON will sing the National Anthem and BLAKE SHELTON and MIRANDA LAMBERT “America The Beautiful” at Super Bowl XLVI at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Sunday, February 5, the NFL announced. The performance will be televised live on NBC prior to kickoff.

In addition, LENNY KRAVITZ and THE FRAY will rock the pregame show.
