Super Bowl QBs since 2005 season

Donovan McNabb (drafted by Philadelphia 1st round) vs. Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round)

Matt Hasselbeck (traded from Green Bay) vs. Ben Roethlisberger (drafted by Pittsburgh 1st round)

Rex Grossman (drafted by Chicago 1st round) vs. Peyton Manning (drafted by Indianapolis 1st round)

Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round) vs. Eli Manning (drafted by San Diego 1st round but immediately traded to New York)

Kurt Warner (free agent at 37 with a Super Bowl) vs. Ben Roethlisberger (drafted by Pittsburgh 1st round)

Peyton Manning (drafted by Indianapolis 1st round) vs. Drew Brees (free agent at 27)

Ben Roethlisberger (drafted by Pittsburgh 1st round) vs. Aaron Rodgers (drafted by Green Bay 1st round)

Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round) vs. Eli Manning (drafted by San Diego 1st round but immediately traded to New York)

Colin Kaepernick (backup drafted by San Francisco 2nd round) vs. Joe Flacco (drafted by Baltimore 1st round)

Peyton Manning (free agent at 37 with a Super Bowl) vs. Russell Wilson (drafted by Seattle 3rd round)

Russell Wilson (drafted by Seattle 3rd round) vs. Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round)

Cam Newton (drafted by Carolina 1st round) vs. Peyton Manning (free agent at 39 with a Super Bowl)

Matt Ryan (drafted by Atlanta 1st round) vs. Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round)

Tom Brady (drafted by New England 6th round) vs. Nick Foles (backup free agent at 28 but drafted by Philadelphia 3rd round)

 

Basically, draft your QBs unless you're signing a veteran who has won a Super Bowl all ready... I can't think of any elite Free Agent QBs that were young enough to build a franchise around besides Brees. Thoughts?

I'm not sure there are any QBs who will hit the market that you'd consider franchise cornerstones.  They'd be staying right where they are if that were the case.  Hell, the guy I'd run my own mother over to sign were I a GM has been in Canada his whole career.  Could end up like Jeff Garcia, could stay in Calgary, who knows.  I know I don't.

Unfortunately for the Vikings, Kirk Cousins was supposed to be that guy. I thought I would point it out because people say, "we need a franchise QB to win a Super Bowl," but chances are if you didn't draft him, you're not going to win a championship.

Cousins has been a HUGE disappointment. I originally thought that he lacked talent in Washington, but seeing how he has Diggs, Thielen, and guys like Cook and Murray... where's the production?

 

He's just an above-average at best QB... like Stafford.

Sounds like 2020 is the last year of the agreement.

The Jaguars are under contract to play one home game at Wembley every year through 2020. The deal Khan struck with the NFL for those games grants the Jaguars extended territorial rights in the United Kingdom, as well as all the ticket revenue at the 90,000-seat stadium.

I guess that explains why he wanted to buy the stadium. Better top get paid 100 times a year rather than once.

Carson Wentz likely done for season with mysterious back issue. Hopefully that’s why he’s been below average this season. 

 

So so just like last season, the Super BOwl champion Philadelphia Eagles will be flying on the back of Nick Foles through the rest of the regular season and through the Super Bowl, where they will now certainly repeat as Super Bowl Champions.

However, in buying Wembley, Khan would have not have had the hospitality revenues as the FA would've kept the suite and club income.  Regardless of Khan's Wembley contract, the NFL will play two years a year at the new Tottenham stadium through 2029

"No clear evidence of a clean recovery by the kicking team", despite this replay, and 54 literally picking up the ball and running out of the pile with it.

I hate when games completely turn on penalties like this. 

 

I didnt have a dog in the fight either way but damn, this league is absolutely unwatchable at this point.

So, wait... did that game turn against the Chargers on the missed call on the blatant helmet to helmet, or for the Chargers on the P.I. in the endzone?

Either that or the Chiefs went Full Reid (TM) yet again... to think, they had a chance to nail home the top seed tonight. They still have a chance to do so, but the margin of error is starting to become razor thin at best.

That’s kinda what I mean. They blew that helmet to helmet hit call then tacked on a makeup call the next play. Nails game from Rivers, and it was definitely entertaining, but damn do a lot of games end on those kind of stupid sequences. It just looks so dumb.

That didn't define the game, (and I agree with your assessment of the call)... look at the stats.  The Chargers got shafted way more than Philly
