Troy Aikman, Troy Aikman, Steve Young, Troy Aikman, Brett Favre, John Elway, John Elway, Kurt Warner, Trent Dilfer, Tom Brady, Brad Johnson, Tom Brady, Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning. Those are your last 20 Super Bowl winning QB’s.

In today’s NFL, in your opinion, who are the 5 best teams in the league? Now… think of your top 5 QB’s in the NFL. Some overlap there, no? In the NFL, if you don’t have a good QB, you have no chance. None. Sure, you can always point to a few outlier marginal QB’s that won a Super Bowl because their teams had historic defenses, like the terrible Trent Dilfer back in 2000 or the very meh Brad Johnson in 2003, when, even just 10 or so years ago, it was a different game.

Brad Johnson, Jeff George, Tony Banks, Shane Matthews, Danny Wuerffel, Patrick Ramsey, Tim Hasselbeck, Mark Brunell, Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, Rex Grossman, and John Beck. Those are the guys the Redskins have gone to battle with at QB in the Dan Snyder era. They had no chance. They do now.

The Redskins gave up an enormous package of draft picks to secure their guy, but if RG3 is the real deal like the Redskins think he will be, he'll be worth it. Congrats to Skins fans. Big night.
