10. Phil Simms

Phil Simms led the New York Giants to a Super Bowl and was named Super Bowl MVP. He had a great season, but the most telling piece of the Simms puzzle is a couple of years later. He was putting up good stats and then got injured. Jeff Hostetler came in and led the Giants to a Super Bowl win. See what I am saying here? Simply put, those Giants squads of that era were a team built on elite defense. It’s quite possible any average quarterback could have stepped in and won with that team. Simms was named to only two Pro Bowls over his entire career and has a career completion rate of 55%. His quarterback comparison during his top years (1984-88) is Jim Everett, a guy more famous for being called out by Jim Rome (look it up on Youtube if you don’t know what I am talking about, you will not regret it.)
