I always view the QB question like goaltending in hockey. A great QB doesn't guarantee that you will win, but bad play from the QB position pretty much guarantees that you will lose. I look at teams like Arizona and Buffalo, and felt bad for their fans and players - no way they could win consistently with the QBs they had.

You didn't always need a spectacular QB to win in the past - Baltimore winning a Super Bowl with Trent Dilfer, and Tampa Bay with Brad Johnson, are two good examples. Those guys weren't brilliant, but they were good game managers who knew their limitations, made smart decisions, and didn't turn the ball over. With a great D and a good running game, that got it done. Over these last few years, though, the passing game has evolved to the point where you wonder if that model will ever get it done again...
