Jim Plunkett, John ElwayGetty ImagesThe Raiders' Jim Plunkett was 16-for-25 for 172 yards and a touchdown in a 38-9 rout of Washington in Super Bowl XVIII. In a Super Bowl XXXII win over Green Bay, the Broncos didn't need a huge contribution from John Elway.
Through 42 Super Bowls, there have been 52 different starting quarterbacks. Among them are players who put up monster numbers and won regular-season MVP awards, and guys who still make us wonder how they ever started a Super Bowl.

Our list is top-heavy with 49ers (Joe Montana and Steve Young) and bottom-heavy with Hall of Famers (John Elway, John Unitas) and guys who will get into the Hall only with a ticket (Neil O'Donnell, Rich Gannon).
