It is hard to win in the NFL without a great quarterback, but many teams have won the Super Bowl with average QB play. Trent Dilfer, Doug Williams, Mark Rypien and Jim McMahon are just a few that have won a Super Bowl without being a superhero. Well the Texans owner Bob McNair is now saying he does not his quarterbacks to be superheroes, but rater just get the job done.
“Of course, Ryan Fitzpatrick had probably his best year under coach Bill O’Brien. Coach really gets it all out of the quarterbacks. It really is a good environment for quarterbacks,” McNair told The Houston Chronicle when asked about the team’s quarterback situation. “We’ll try to make it up by having one of the best defenses, so we’ll keep other teams from scoring many points. And we’ll be able to run the ball and hopefully control the clock. And we’ll continue to get better on special teams. So if we can do those three things, all we need is consistent play out of our quarterbacks — they don’t have to be superheroes.”
