One of these jerks probably punches his ticket for Canton this Sunday...

What do all of the following QBs have in common?

-Bart Starr
-Roger Staubach
-Bob Griese
-Terry Bradshaw
-Joe Montana
-Troy Aikman
-John Elway
-Tom Brady

All of them have been the starting QB for (at least) two Super Bowl Champions, and all are in (or headed to) the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Roethlisberger or Warner will (ugh) join this group of two-time champs Sunday evening. The only two-time champion QB NOT in the Hall is Jim Plunkett (XV and XVIII)... If Arizona pulls the upset Kurt Warner, as the first starting QB to win a Super Bowl with two different franchises, would damn near AUTOMATICALLY get in.

Roethlisberger? I hate even thinking about this, but two rings won for a marquee franchise will probably get him to Canton, even if the rest of his career is unremarkable.

This game is going to be torture, isn't it? Here's hoping 'Tez gets into the Hall Saturday to soften the blow for us poor downtrodden Hawks fans.

Side note: Does Commissioner Goodell remind anyone else of Jack Donaghy?
