    Give Staubach a receiver like Jerry Rice and he wins the NFL championship every year he plays.

    Staubach had one of the greatest coaches in history, and a disciple of Paul Brown. The answer remains no. For the record, Favre is Hall of Fame, and I don't put him in that group either. I put quite a few before Favre in recent history.

    Yes, Tom Landry invented the 4-3 defense and then it became the Flex Defense. However, that does not take away anything from the skills and leadership possessed by Staubach. No one can touch him in that regard. If I had to choose a quarterback to win a big game I would pick Staubach.

    Nick already burst that bubble, but I'd add to it that even broken down he was pretty darn good for the Chiefs and he beat Steve Young and that SB winning cast with the lesser Chiefs, head to head.

    How many rings, from how many post-seasons, in how many "valid" seasons played (seasons not somehow invalidated, by injury, or by otherwise not being the starter). X-for-Y-in-Z seasons played. Graham played 10 seasons and 10 championship games, and won 7 quote-unquote rings. So his numbers are 7-for-10-in-10, the gold standard for this particular metric.

    Graham 7-for-10-in-10

    Bart Starr 5-for-6-in-12 (counting from when Lombardi made him the sole starter)

    Montana 4-for-10-in-13 (excl. '86 for injury). With SF, Montana was 4-for-8-in-11 ('86 excluded for injury).

    Brady 5-for-14-in-15.

    Bradshaw 4-for-9-in-12

    Brady's conversion percentage of post-season appearances into championships is significantly behind these other qbs.

    Yes, going by that Graham had the best championship record of any quarterback. I never saw him play so I couldn't say whether or not I would choose him as my quarterback for one big important game.

    He shouldn't have even been in that Super Bowl. "The catch" was just a fluke!

    Stop squinting. Look at the roster for Joe's first ring. And then remember what I noted about a declining Joe taking a lesser Chiefs team and beating HOF and future SB winning Steve Young with Rice and company.

    What did Young have to say afterward? "I learned from Joe, from the master. Today the master had a little more to teach the student."

    Montana's first year in a new system with the Chief's he went 11-5 and took the AFC West, advancing to the AFC Championship game, where they lost to the Bills after Montana left the game 3 plays into the third quarter following a concussion.

    The next year, Joe's last, he beat that Niners team again in route to a more modest 9 win season. He threw for over 3,200 yds and lost in the first round of the playoffs to Miami, despite putting up over 300 yds and a 70% completion, with his last game rating coming in at 102.8

    It had been that kind of frustrating year, with Allen in decline as a primary option and the team less effective defensively. Montana had watched his team squander three 300+ yard games during the regular season that should have put them at 12 wins. One of those losses was to Miami, a foreshadowing as he threw for the same total in both losses.

    http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2010/...roger-staubach

    In fact, Staubach was the best in that category for four years and Montana only two. When Staubach retired he had the best passer rating of any quarterback in NFL history.

    Besides that, he had a skill which Montana never even dreamed of matching, and that skill was his ability to scramble. He rushed for 2,264 yards during his tenure in Dallas and scored 20 rushing TD's. Also, he had a regular season winning percentage of .746 compared to Montana's .713.

    If Staubach and Montana were the choices to be the quarterback for the same team I would pick Staubach every time. He would win more games with that team than Montana would win with the same team.

    Case closed!

    Bradshaw 4-for-9-in-12

    QBs with 4 or more rings, and their postseasons-to-championship wins fractions:

    a. Starr 0.833
    b. Graham 0.700
    c. Bradshaw 0.444
    d. Montana 0.400 (0.500 w/ SF)*
    e. Brady 0.357

    Charts:
    a. llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
    b. llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll llllllllllllllllllll
    c. llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
    d. llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll(lllllllll l)*
    e. lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll

    My point is Brady's not a fluke, he's not in the top four here. There're more QBs with more championships if you go back far enough too, but 1933 is as far back as the modern forward pass goes I think, before then it's a wildly different game.

    I'm more interested in their individual play in the post season and their play in the big games. Starr and Graham had fewer games to play to get to a single elimination championship game (mostly 12 game seasons). Given the limited field it presented a much easier path to a Championship than Montana had.

    Graham played 126 games for 174 tds to 135 picks and a career rating of 86.6
    Montana played 192 games for 244 tds to 123 picks in SF, with a carer rating of 93.5

    In the playoffs?

    Graham played in 12 playoff games for 14 tds and 17 picks, with a playoff rating of 67.4
    Montana played in 23 playoff games for 45 tds and 21 picks, with a playoff rating of 95.6
