I feel the bucs Defence will prove the statement "Defense wins in The Playoffs" but I want the Raiders to win.
There are so many "sob stories" in this bowl. Sure some are ok but every five seconds I hear can Tim Brown finally get his bowl and then make his way home to see the birth of his twins.
Rich Gannon deserves that ring just to prove why he has had one of the best careers while in his prime. Even better than Dan Marino! If Rich Gannon can win this Bowl his prime IMO will run laps aroun Warren Moon and most of all DAN MARINO. Imo Dan Marino is the most overrated QB's of all time.
Rune, I'm not sure what you're saying here. I know you think that Gannon is better than Marino was but they've both been to the same number of Super Bowls and as of this moment, they've each won the same number.
Even if the Raiders win, Gannon's four great years with one Super Bowl win doesn't surpass what Marino did. And I'm not even a Dolphin fan. I'm a Dolphin hater. But Marino is one of the best of all time and a cinch Hall of Famer, something Gannon will probably never be.
Lots of QBs have won Super Bowls and many of them aren't even close to Marino or Gannon. Doug Williams lead the Redskins to a Super Bowl win. That wasn't a Dilfer situation, a decent QB who didn't screw up a great team. But Williams isn't anywhere near the QB as Marino. Mark Rypien wasn't either, nor was Joe Theisman.
Winning a Super Bowl is definitely a part of measuring QB greatness but it is neither necessary nor sufficient. Winning a Super Bowl doesn't make you great and not winning one doesn't preclude you from greatness.
