    Baltimore Colts with Johnny Unitas in 1971 (way past his prime)

    Tampa Bay Bucs with Brad Johnson

    Baltimore Ravans with Trent Dilfer

    (none of those teams came close to repeating)

    may be a few other cases - but those are the ones that stand out.

    Brad Johnson wasn't that crummy of a QB.

    Dilfer, OTOH....Ugh!

    He just didn't cost them any games. That Defense was brutal in Tampa. There are very few marriages of QB excellence and Defensive teams like Young and the 49er Defense.

    They called the 1971 Super Bowl between the Baltimore Colts (Unitas) and Dallas Cowboys (Craig Morton) "The Blooper Bowl'

    There have been a few others. The Redskins with Doug Williams and then again with Mark Rypien. The Giants with Jeff Hostetler. Namath is so famous for his guarantee, but his career other than SB3 was pretty sucky.

    Until they win another SB, Dilfer's the greatest quarterback in Ravens history, 10-1 as a starter. :udaman:
