Not owning that coveted Super Bowl ring doesn't diminish Dan Marino's ability to lead his Dolphins to last-minute victories.

Following in the footsteps of the great Joe Montana didn't faze Steve Young, who led the 49ers to a fifth Super Bowl championship.

Bart Starr helped lead the Packers to five NFL championships in seven seasons, an accomplishment no other quarterback since has matched.

In 10 pro football seasons, Otto Graham led the Cleveland Browns to 10 title games, an accomplishment that will likely never be matched.

The " Holy Roller," "Sea of Hands," and "Ghost to the Post" all came courtesy of "The Snake," the field general of the renegade 1970s Raiders.

The seminal moment of Johnny Unitas' career was leading the Baltimore Colts to victory in the NFL's first sudden-death OT title game.

The late-game heroics of Roger Staubach -- "Captain Comeback" -- helped the Cowboys become known as "America's Team" in the 1970s.

With a frantic last-minute scoring drive against the Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI, Tom Brady helped the Patriots' dynasty in its rise to power.

" The Drive" was the stuff of legends, but John Elway's heroics didn't end there as he made fans wait until the clock hit 0:00.

Going a perfect 4-for-4 in pro football's biggest game and winning three Super Bowl MVPs in the process, Joe Montana is the most clutch QB ever.
