List Rules Only quarterbacks who haven't won a Super Bowl.

A list of the best quarterbacks to never win a Super Bowl. It seems like these days there are two groups of NFL quarterbacks: Super Bowl winners, and everyone else. If you've won a Super Bowl, you're generally thrown into the class of "elite" quarterbacks. What that means is up for debate, but what isn't though, is the fact that a number of outstanding, nevertheless Hall of Fame caliber/Hall of Fame quarterbacks haven't won a Super Bowl. Despite their standing as some of the game's greatest signal callers, for one reason or another, they haven't taken a Lombardi trophy back to their city.

Some of football's greatest quarterbacks didn't have the stars align when they made the big game. Just ask Dan Marino and Jim Kelly. Considered two of the best quarterbacks in NFL history, these two all time greats had the distinction of playing for AFC teams at a time when the NFC had the league's dominant teams. Marino only made the Super Bowl once, and had the misfortune of playing one of the greatest teams of all time in the San Francisco 49ers. Besides that, his teams weren't good enough to advance to the Super Bowl. As for Kelly, his Buffalo Bills went to four Super Bowls, but had to play the NFC East when it had four of the best teams in football.

This is a list of the best quarterbacks to never win a Super Bowl. While winning a championship will define a quarterback, if a signal caller isn't able to win the big game, it's not necessarily his fault either. Take a look and vote for the best quarterback to never win the big game. Vote or re-rank it at your discretion.
