7. Joe Theismann
Most people remember Joe Theismann for one of three things: (allegedly) changing the pronunciation of his last name in college so that it rhymes with “Heisman” (many people will tell you that it’s actually pronounced “Thees-man”), winning the Super Bowl as quarterback of the Washington Redskins, and suffering one of the most gruesome injuries in NFL history on Monday Night Football. But the truth is, while Theisman had a 15-year NFL career, he was only good for about two of those years: 1982 and 1983. Not coincidentally, his primary responsibility those years was handing the football to Hall of Fame running back John Riggins. Point being, the Washington Redskins won Super Bowl XVII with Joe Theismann at quarterback, and not because of Joe Theismann at quarterback.
