You missed the point. Disect the SB games and you'll find the winning teams didn't win because of Qb play they won because of their respective defenses.
Pitt, NE, GB, NY all had great Ds by the time the POs rolled around.
NO and Indy didn't win a SB until their Ds were up to snuff, despite having two of the best Qbs in the NFL and top rated offenses.
Qbs are glorified in the media and set up as heros or goats. We need heros. But the truth is there are 21 other players on the field at any given time and the contribution of those guys >>> 1 Qb no matter how good he is.
49ers have a great D and no matter who their Qb is they are going to be in this thing. And by the way the 49ers just lost to the Rams with Kap at Qb. He is supposed to be way more dynamic than Smith with a better arm and willing to take more risks with his passes. What happened? The Rams defense happened.
