    That's five positions though. One good OL does you nothing.

      QB is widely regarded as the most important position in sports. The funny thing is that there no position in sports that is more dependent on the players around him than the QB. A pitcher can have an amazing game and it doesn't matter how the guy of 3B played. A goalie is the same idea. A Quarterback needs a good OL to protect him. He needs a run back who can get good yardage on 1st down, move the sticks, and to take pressure of of him. Then a QB needs good WR's. Yes the QB is probably "the most important position" but it just goes to show you why football is the most team oriented sport there is.

        Quarterback. Just look at how much a team has to compensate when the quarterback isn't the great. Look at the 2000 Ravens, one of the best defenses of all time. Now consider the other past 10 SB winners. Manning, Roethlisberger, Brady (3), Johnson, Warner, Elway (2), Favre. Roethlisberger's situation is unique but he could be a great quarterback in this league and his numbers that year were 17 TD/9 INT with 63% completion percentage and around 1800 yards. Brad Johnson was 22:6 TD:INT ratio, a 62% passer, and had a 3,000 yard season. So one common denominator is a good quarterback. I can't find Dilfer's numbers but I bet they aren't that bad either.

            Burger boy also was supported by a great line, running game, and defense.

              This isn't even about what positions you need great players at to win superbowls, it's about the basic structure of a team.

              A quarterback is the glue of an offense. He is what turns the effort from the offensive line, the runningbacks, and the wide receivers into points. He learns everyone's role is every play, he practices with and talks to all his players.

              It is extremely rare (if unheard of) that such a player ever exists on the defensive side of the ball, but even then, the quarterback commands the method by which teams score points.

              Incompetence at any position other than quarterback can be compensated for schematically.

                NFL GM's decided a long time ago that QB is the most important position on a football team. You only have to look at the last decade to see how they view the position. In the last 10 years of the draft, QB's have gone #1 overall in 8 of them and of the 2 drafts where a QB didn't go #1 overall, there wasn't a QB drafted in the top 10 in one of them indicating that no QB was worth the pick. Only Vince Young managed to go top 5 without being taken #1 overall.
                There is absolutely no argument about the most important position on a football team, the draft clearly shows the answer.
                And proud of it!!!
