NFL quarterbacks are highly scrutinized. Some of the best arms are excluded from being considered ‘the greatest’ because they couldn’t get it done when it mattered most. Even though these quarterbacks don’t have Super Bowl rings, it doesn’t mean they didn’t accomplish some incredible feats during their career.
There are a number of regular season MVPs and Hall of Famers on this list, as well as one quarterback who had FOUR chances to win it all, and came up short each time.
Before the AFL-NFL merger, the Duke alum won the NFL Championship in 1960. The five-time Pro Bowler enjoyed an 18-year career, leading the league in passing on five separate occasions.
But, after leaving the Philadelphia Eagles, he joined the Washington Redskins. The Redskins did make it to the Super Bowl in 1972. However, they would lose to Don Shula and the Miami Dolphins. By that point, Jurgensen didn’t even start due to an injury.
