    Superbowl history question

    I have been racking my pea brain searching way back into my archives and I just can't confirm something.

    Has any NFL QB ever lead 2 different teams to the Superbowl?

    Craig Morton started for the Cowboys (lost to the Colts) and the Broncos (lost to the Cowboys).

    Earl Morrall, QB - Baltimore (III, V), Miami (VII, VIII)
    Jeff Rutledge, QB - New York Giants (XXI), Washington (XXVI)

    Also the following were on the roster but did not play 1 or 2 of the games.
    Matt Cavanaugh, QB - San Francisco (XIX*), New York Giants (XXV*)
    Jim McMahon, QB - Chicago (XX), Green Bay (XXXI*)
    -Craig Morton is the only player in the history of the NFL to start a Super Bowl game at quarterback for more than one team (Dallas Cowboys - Super Bowl V and Denver Broncos - Super Bowl XIII).

    -Craig Morton put up his best career statistics in his 17th season in the league (1980) when he passed for 20 touchdowns and more than 3,000 yards.

    -Jersey number seven is honored twice in the Denver Broncos ring of honor as it was worn by both Craig Morton and John Elway.

    -The most interceptions Craig Morton ever threw in a playoff game was four, this happened in Denver’s Super Bowl XIII loss following the 1977 season. His second most interceptions in a playoff game was three, this occurred in the Super Bowl V loss by Dallas.

    -Craig Morton was preceded and succeeded as the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos by a player with the first name of Steve. Before he came to Denver, their starting quarterback had been Steve Ramsey and after he retired the team turned the starting quarterback duties over to Steve DeBerg.

    -The only time that Morton had more than two rushing touchdowns in a season was the year he took the Broncos to the Super Bowl (1977) when he had four rushing touchdowns.

    Hmm, I wonder what made you want to know this?

    Could you be thinking about a certain former grocery store bagger? Now you know that he won't be the first NFL QB to lead 2 different teams to the Superbowl, but he does have a chance to be the first QB in league history to lead 2 different teams to victory in the Superbowl. Wouldn't that be something to hang a Canton entrance application on?

    Oh MY GOODNESS!

    That never occurred to me! And it was so transparent!.

    Do I have egg on my face, or what?

    I wonder if former Arena League/NFL Europe Quarterback ever made it to the Super Bowl? Started in a Super Bowl... WAIT... WON a Super Bowl?

    Sorry.. it is getting late and I am feeling ... what is the metaphor I am grasping for..... silly?

    You're the man r8rh8rmike. Exactly what I'm thinking.

    A shoe in for the Hall " if " he can pull off another Superbowl win. Just getting to the Superbowl this year might be enough win or lose.

    I know I know a very big " IF "

    Personally I would like to see him in the Hall.

    Me too big guy. And I agree that just getting to the Superbowl might be enough to seal the deal. I'll be rooting for my man Kurt.

    Re: Superbowl history question

    There is discussion on the sports talk airwaves as to whether Warner has already accomplished enough to garner a Yellow Jacket.

    How many NFL QB's can boast 2 league MVP awards and starting in 2 Super Bowls (winning one)? There are several resting on their laurels after accomplishing less.

    Shoot, just getting the Cardinals to the play-offs should be worth one in itself.

    The biggest question is..... whose colors will he be sporting?

    Let's don't put Warner in the HOF just yet. There was a stint of about 4 or 5 years that he didn't do much. Howard Balzeris a voter on the HOF committee and he says that Warner still needs two great years before he would consider giving him a vote for the HOF.

    You could very well be right Tx, the voters seem to be really picky these days with who they select. It's not like the old days when a guy like Joe Namath with mediocre career numbers could get in based on one Superbowl win, albeit a historic one. I do think if Warner leads the Cardinals to a win in the Superbowl, it would be hard to keep him out of Canton, regardless of what he does the next few years.

    By the way, great to have you back.

    Re: Superbowl history question

    I've heard some bring up it's the PRO Football Hall of Fame, so shouldn't his numbers in the AFL count? They said that voters did take in to account Warren Moon's numbers from the CFL.
    Now the AFL numbers would of course be very skewed because the AFL is a different game from the NFL, but still, Warner is still said to be one of the greatest AFL players ever. If they looked at the CFL with Moon, they gotta look AFL with Warner, and if they do, it should no doubt get him in.
    I think even right NOW if he never touched another football, he would get in, but it would probably take several years. Right now he's fighting to cut down on those years.
