    Best/most efficient Big Game QBs in the Super Bowl era

    Here is a list of how SB era QBs have fared in championship games and Super Bowl games. No regular season, wildcard, or divisional round playoff games are included. Rather than list all the attempts, yardage, TDs, etc, I used passer rating since that incorporates the numbers and efficiencies in the formula. I also only used players that appeared in at least 3 games, as that would ensure that each player had to have been on two teams that advanced to the championship round. There were 39 such quarterbacks that played in 3 such games.

    In Response to Re: Best/most efficient Big Game QBs in the Super Bowl era:
    Why not include all playoff games? When did Gary Kubiak lose a big game?
    Posted by Patsfansince1966

    In one of the Broncos Super Bowl losses he played a fair amount and Denver lost.  Guys that played partial games were hard to catagorize, but if they barely played at all the main QB got the W or L.  In games where there were two QBs seeing a lot of action, both QBs were credited with the W or the L.

    As for why not all playoff games, there has been a lot of discussion focused on "big games."  Many times QBs were able to pad their overall stats by destroying inferior competition in early round games.
