It may seem silly now, but replacing the No. 1-overall draft pick/face of the franchise with a little-known backup was once a big deal in New England.
Teetering on the brink of a dynasty, the [Steelers](/teams/pittsburghsteelers/profile?team=PIT) went into their first [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47) season and chose [Joe Gilliam](http://www.nfl.com/players/joegilliam/profile?id=GIL561200) over [Terry Bradshaw](http://www.nfl.com/players/terrybradshaw/profile?id=BRA301078).
Looking to light a fire in No. 1 pick [Troy Aikman](http://www.nfl.com/players/troyaikman/profile?id=AIK553722), [Cowboys](/teams/dallascowboys/profile?team=DAL) coach Jimmy Johnson drafted a second QB -- [Steve Walsh](http://www.nfl.com/players/stevewalsh/profile?id=WAL606936) -- in the same offseason.
After being shamed by [Jay Schroeder](http://www.nfl.com/players/jayschroeder/profile?id=SCH519984) in the NFC title game, [Doug Williams](http://www.nfl.com/players/dougwilliams/profile?id=WIL247171) got the last laugh by taking the [Redskins](/teams/washingtonredskins/profile?team=WAS) to [ a Super Bowl win](http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-super-bowl/09000d5d80151445/Super-Bowl-Memories-Super-Bowl-XXII) a year later.
After signing [Rob Johnson](http://www.nfl.com/players/robjohnson/profile?id=JOH625847) to a hefty contract, the [Bills](/teams/buffalobills/profile?team=BUF) got fan favorite [Doug Flutie](http://www.nfl.com/players/dougflutie/profile?id=FLU553722) for much less. What followed is still a point of contention in Buffalo.
Having two [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47)-winning quarterbacks on the same roster competing for one job put the [Giants](/teams/newyorkgiants/profile?team=NYG) in a precarious spot.
With [Drew Brees](/player/drewbrees/2504775/profile) already on the roster, the [Chargers](/teams/sandiegochargers/profile?team=SD) made a draft-day move for [Philip Rivers](/player/philiprivers/2506121/profile). Immediately, there was controversy.
The Los Angeles [Rams](/teams/st.louisrams/profile?team=STL) of the 1950s were on the cutting edge of offensive innovation, thanks to the play of [Norm Van Brocklin](http://www.nfl.com/players/normvanbrocklin/profile?id=VAN269376) and [Bob Waterfield](http://www.nfl.com/players/bobwaterfield/profile?id=WAT021857).
Like Van Brocklin and Waterfield before them, the [49ers](/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF) had two future [Hall of Fame](http://www.profootballhof.com/)rs at QB. Unlike those '50s [Rams](/teams/st.louisrams/profile?team=STL), the [49ers](/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF)' QBs couldn't coexist.
