That's my point... they are not underpaid compared to other sports. A top ten player in the NBA (Durant, Lebron, Paul, Love, etc.) is worth more than a QB in the NFL, because they equate to more wins. The NFL over the past two seasons have proved that you don't need a top 10 QB to win the Super Bowl. In the NBA you need a MINIMUM of two max contract players to even talk about contending for a championship. The Pacers and Spurs may be the only exception to this rule.
So, you want to say that the Ravens won the SB with a subpar QB-play? Flacco was very good in this game,. If he played, like he almost always play, the Ravens would have lost this game.
As for Wilson: the Hawks defense made a terrific job which you usually won't see very often against very good offenses. Wilson only had to manage the game but he did it without any flaws.
Saying that you don't need a Top10 QB, even based on just two season, is really far away from reality, imho.
