The Most Accurate Quarterback In Playoff History Lets It Rip In Super Bowl XXXIV

The Most Accurate Quarterback In Playoff History Lets It Rip In Super Bowl XXXIV

So is Kurt Warner a legitimate Hall of Famer or not?

He led three teams to the Super Bowl – including the out-of-nowhere 1999 Super Bowl Champion St. Louis Rams (after going 4-12 the season before) and the (who?) 2008 Arizona Cardinals, believe it or not.

Warner has two MVPs and one Super Bowl MVP. He has the seventh most passing yards (nearly 4,000 on over 450 attempts) in postseason history.

What else does this guy have to do?

How about being the most accurate postseason quarterback, ever?

With a 66.45 completion percentage, he is. Ahead of Peyton Manning. Ahead of Tom Brady. Ahead of Joe Montana and Steve Young and Drew Brees and Brett Favre and everyone.*

But all those guys make today’s list, the 20 most accurate quarterbacks in playoff history – all of them over 60 percent.

This is quite a nice group of all-time QBs (for the most part). Hey, wait a second. Is that Chad Pennington?
