The Top 10 Quarterbacks To Never Win a Super Bowl

Bleacher Report

10. Jim Everett
9. John Hadl
8. Ken Anderson
7. Dave Krieg

6. Dan Fouts

Another San Diego Chargers man, Dan Fouts is one of the more recognized players. Fouts spent 15 years with the Chargers, and helped boost them to the AFC Title game in the 1981 season.

After throwing 4,802 yards on the season, the Chargers would then go on to lose, and more importantly, never make a Super Bowl under the Fouts era. With that said, it doesn't discount that this Hall of Famer is one of the true legends of the game.



5. Boomer Esiason

Boomer Esiason managed to boost similar career numbers to Dave Krieg. His quarterback play, however, was very different. If Ken Anderson is the No. 1 guy in Cincinnati, well Boomer is the second.

Boomer managed to lead Cincinnati to two Super Bowl appearances, where he ultimately lost both in a rather unconvincing fashion.

Now spending time on the broadcasting side of football, Boomer's career is as solid as concrete in terms of his quarterback play. One stat is still missing, though: a Super Bowl victory.



4. Jim Kelly

Kelly's 11 seasons in the NFL are ones to be remembered. The Buffalo Bills lack few franchise-type players, but Kelly is among the greats.

Being famous for his no-huddle offense, Kelly's passing ability leaves a lot to be desired in today's game.

His ring finger is still missing some gold, and unlike previous nominees, Kelly led the Bills to four Super Bowl appearances. All of which he failed to get the job done.



3. Fran Tarkenton

For me, Tarkenton is one of my heroes. I may not have been watching the game back when he was a star passer, but I know enough to know that he was and will always be, one of the greats.

This story is almost sad, as a guy with so much talent and charisma couldn't get the Super Bowl ring he so surely deserved. Not to worry though, Fran gave us many memories that we will always link to the Minnesota Vikings.



2. Dan Marino

This was a tough spot to give Dan, as some would argue that he is worthy of the No. 1 spot. Dan's years with the Dolphins have solidified Miami's legacy in the NFL.

Dan's arm resembled a cannon at the time, and if you've ever seen him throw a pass nowadays you'd know that he's still got it.

The Super Bowl was just never kind to Dan, and in reality, it upset him a lot. I guess you can understand that, as Dan is one of the most exciting and iconic figures in all of football. Still, he never got the job done, and never gifted Miami with the Lombardi Trophy.



1. Warren Moon

As I just stated, Marino and Moon could possibly tie for first place on this list. However, Moon's accomplishments aren't to be overshadowed. Spending time with five total teams, Moon is most famous for his time in Houston and Minnesota.

Moon led the Oilers to six playoff spots in 1984-1993 era, and helped the Oilers become the respected franchise they are today. Warren was a great passer, and a great man. The Super Bowl though, wasn't so kind.

He fell short, but sees his accomplishments for what they are today. The term "Super Bowl or Bust" is thrown around a lot, but it doesn't even come close to relating to Warren Moon.

How Marino isn't #1 boggles the mind.

I kind of agree with Moon and Marino being tied on the list for #1. Their teams were always missing something in another phase of the game and it was the lack of team balance that were their ultimate undoing. For Marino, he spent years with a poor defense.....or no running game.....or a lack of top receiving targets. Moon's Oilers were similar. They often had no real running game....or a poor defense. However, the year that they gave up a 32 point halftime lead to the Bills in the playoffs.....that was their year. They had a good defense, but simply failed to adjust their defense as the lead got whittled away that day....by Frank Reich!!! Incidentally, I think Reich holds the record in both the NCAA and NFL as the QB behind the greatest comebacks of all time in each league.

That's just a journalist trying not to go with the "obvious" pick or to be "different" or "innovative."

Really, being a Dan Marino fan aside, there is no comparison between Moon and Marino.
