This Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers face the New York Giants, which means that each quarterback in the game – Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning – will have won multiple Super Bowls. This is not a common occurrence. In fact, the list is shorter than many fans would anticipate: Bart Starr–Green Bay Packers (2) Roger Staubach–Dallas Cowboys (2) Bob Griese–Miami Dolphins (2) Terry Bradshaw–Pittsburgh Steelers (4) Jim Plunkett–Oakland Raiders (2) Joe Montana–San Franciso 49ers (4) Troy Aikman–Dallas (3) John Elway–Denver Broncos (2) Tom Brady–New England Patriots (3) Ben Roethlisberger–Pittsburgh (2) Eli Manning–New York Giants (2) CBS network gets the opportunity to host this huge game for NFL history fanatics this Sunday at 4:25 pm Eastern time. Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath and tragedy will be on the minds of any person who steps foot into MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey near Staten Island and the Jersey shore. But, the epic nature of getting to see two multiple winning quarterbacks face off in an important game for both teams will take people’s minds away from the tragedy at least for a little while. Super Bowl winning quarterbacks don’t get many chances to win more Super Bowls. Just ask some of the potential Hall Of Famers still playing, like Peyton Manning, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers. Peyton Manning has lost one Super Bowl. He joins Brett Favre and Kurt Warner as the most recent winning Super Bowl quarterbacks to also lose a Super Bowl. Warner lost twice, once with the St. Louis Rams and once with the Arizona Cardinals. This season brings new quarterback contenders to the field who might sneak in and win the big one. Arguably, there are 10 teams still competing for the Super Bowl title, five from each Conference. Of those 10, five teams, the Houston Texans, Atlanta Falcons, Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco and Chicago Bears bring seasoned, but Super Bowl virgin quarterbacks with them while headed towards a possible 2013 Super Bowl appearance. The other five teams, New England, Denver, Pittsburgh, New York G-Men and Green Bay all bring veteran, experienced, past winning quarterbacks to a possible 2013 Super Bowl appearance. Hopefully, CBS will post the stats of how many times multiple winning quarterbacks have faced off against one another in the regular season and playoffs. Brady versus Roethlisberger should be on the list. Joe Montana against Troy Aikman should as well. Super Bowl XIII is a for sure between Bradshaw and Staubach because both had already won two. Bradshaw versus Griese and Staubach versus Griese probably happened somewhere along the way. Elway never faced any other multiple winning quarterbacks because he retired after his second Super Bowl win. Sunday’s rare encounter of multiple winning Super Bowl quarterbacks is even rarer because each quarterback also represents a different conference and they are still playing for their original teams. ***** Howard Alperin is Managing Editor of AmericanizeSoccer.com The post In This Sunday’s New York Giants-Pittsburgh Steelers Game, Something Very, Very Rare Will Occur appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
