Manning looks for Tracy Porter as he tries to win a 2nd SB with a 2nd team.
The past three days, Football Perspective has looked at the best quarterbacks in NFL history. On Wednesday, I explained the methodology for grading each quarterback in each season. Thursday, I came up with an all-time career list of the best quarterbacks based on their regular season play. Yesterday, I presented the data on playoff performances.
Which leads us into today’s trivia question. Only two quarterbacks have ever led two different teams to championships. Can you name either of them? No quarterback has ever won Super Bowls with different teams, although a certain Mile High quarterback will attempt to do that this year.
Norm Van Brocklin won the championship in 1951 with the Rams and then in 1960 with the Eagles, defeating Vince Lombardi’s Packers in the NFL title game. Tobin Rote led the ’57 Lions to an upset win over the Browns and then helped the ’63 Chargers crush the Patriots. In two title games, Rote’s teams won by a combined score of 110 to 24.
