Holy crap!!!








Trent Difler was a first round pick?


Really though, that is a cool stat. I just hope one more QB gets added to that list soon.

all i can say about that is trading m. vick for l.t. and d. brees (2nd rounder) was one of the greatest coupes ever. especially after all the heat the chargers took.

oh well.

I wonder if The Steelers are the only team to draft TWO QBs in the first round that won SBs

im thinking aikman and staubach, right off the bat. im pretty sure staubach was a 1st rounder. there have only been 41 sb's, and hundreds of qb's come and go. not many teams have even won 2 sb's so i bet its us and dallas

Nope. Staubach was a 10th round pick in the 1964 draft. Now there's a steal.

No, doesn't count he was originally a fourth round draft pick, and picked up by Washington three years after he was drafted. AND he was not even a QB when he started out in Washington, he was a punt returner. Check out the article...
