The Worst Quarterbacks to Play in a Super Bowl Dick Raphael/USA TODAY Sports

7. Craig Morton

Years Played: 1965-1982

Super Bowl Stats: SB V: 12-26, 127 YDS, 1 TD, 3 INT; SB XII: 4-15, 39 yards, 0 TD, 4 INT

Talk about hard times. Morton made it to the Super Bowl in back-to-back seasons in '70 and '71, but the Cowboys gave him the boot in favor of Roger Staubach in 1971. After losing the Cowboys previous Super Bowl appearance to the Colts, coach Tom Landry wasn't looking for a repeat performance. Obviously the Cowboys went on to trounce the Miami Dolphins and many looked to the quarterback change as the reason. Morton made it back to the promised land with the Broncos in Super Bowl XII, against his former Cowboys no less, but the results weren't any better. Morton went 4-15 for 39 yards, with four interceptions, losing 27-10. Yikes!
