That's a stupid way to judge a QB. It takes more than a great QB to win a SuperBowl. Dan Marino never won one, Big Ben has two. Does that mean Roethlisburger is better than Marino? Hell no. Big Ben has always had a great defense that has always kept that team in a great position to win. Big Ben does his part and is good enough to win, but give a guy like Peyton Manning the type of defenses that Big Ben had when he won his two championships and he'd have 5 championships, minimum.
Drew Brees has been lighting it up the last few years, but Peyton hasn't been far behind and all the things he does ON TOP of lighting it up in the air (like calling his own plays, reading defenses and calling audibles that put them in better positions for success, etc) make Peyton Manning the best QB in the league. Still.
