With six active quarterbacks in the NFL already sporting Super Bowl rings, NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah writes an amusing assessment of quarterbacks with the potential to win their first Super Bowl. Names like Matt Schaub with the Houston Texans, Alex Smith with the San Francisco 49ers and Michael Vick of the Philadelphia Eagles top the list (which is obvious). So where does Andy Dalton fit?

Once you get past the nauseating sensation of seeing Joe Flacco at No. 4, Dalton shows up at No. 5, ahead of Tony Romo with the Dallas Cowboys and Matthew Stafford with the Detroit Lions. Jeremiah writes of Dalton:

Dalton is already one of my favorite players in the NFL. All he did during his rookie season was lead the Bengals to the postseason and earn a trip to the Pro Bowl -- not a bad start to a career. Along with Dalton, the Bengals have one of the league's rising stars in WR A.J. Green. For all of the jokes about the Bengals' thin scouting department, they have done a fantastic job of landing impact players in the past few drafts. This team is capable of winning a postseason game or two this season, and I believe they will play in a Super Bowl at some point in the near future.
