Bart Starr Report Abuse
538 points - added 11 years ago by pxc0 - 2 comments
Comments:
Perhaps the greatest field general of all time. He didn't check off the plays Lombardi called, he called all the plays, winning 5 championships and the first 2 Superbowls. Amazing.

Johnny Unitas Report Abuse
Was the unequivocal leader of the Baltimore Colts, leading them to two NFL Championships. When he retired he held nearly every passing record in the books and was known as a field general who called his own plays in the huddle. His record of throwing a TD pass in 47 straight games still stands to this day.

Joe Montana Report Abuse
"Joe Cool" is considered one of the winningest players in football history. He has a record tying four Super Bowl victories, and led or was near the top of every passing category for over ten years. Scouted as having too weak an arm for the NFL, Montana found success by becoming one of most accurate passers ever, setting records for completion percentage and passer rating.

Joe Montana is an absolutely amazing quarterback. He should definitely be #1.

Fran Tarkenton Report Abuse
For some reason the years have not been kind to Tark's legacy. In his day he was the considered the greatest ever, but the following years brought criticisms of his accuracy and his inability to win the Big One. Still, look at the numbers. He broke most of Unitas' records, all the while being the greatest runner in QB history. Tarkenton's ability to scramble, improvise and create plays where there were none was unmatched.

Tarkenton, Starr, Unitas, Sonny, all got their numbers back when it was WAY harder to be a great quarterback because of the rules in place then. I feel the changes have hurt the game and cheapened scoring and records.

Sonny Jurgensen Report Abuse
381 points - added 11 years ago by pxc0 - 1 comment
Comments:
ince Lombardi once said that Jurgensen was the best he'd ever seen. It's not hard to understand why when you look at Jurgensen stats from '61 to '70; he averaged 4,045 yards, 27 touchdowns, and 12 interceptions per season (after normalization) during that time and twice threw for what would today be the equivalent of 5,000+ yards. Also In his prime he led the league in passing yards a record 5 times (tied with Dan Marino) and led the league in passing touchdowns twice.

Tom Brady Report Abuse
Some might argue that Brady's too high on this list considering he still has many years left to play but I disagree. In his short career The Golden Boy already has achieved more than most will in careers twice as long. He has three championships, orchestrating game winning drives in two of those games. Always poised and confident Brady is perfect off the field as well, being named GQ's Best Dressed Man of the Year and dating gorgeous Brazilian super models.

Tom Brady will be the best quarterback to ever play by the time he retires. With 3 superbowl wins in 4 appearances, and arguably the best season by any quarterback ever, and still many more seasons to play he is poised to rise among the ranks. As 2010 comes to a close it appears he is on his way to a 4th ring.

The most overrrated qb on the list who could not consistantly win games and will always throw an interception under pressure. A classic underacheiver who played under a great coach and system, but was all arm with bad decision making in the clutch.

Dan Marino Report Abuse
There's little question that Marino is the best pure QB on this list. At the time of his retirement he held every major passing record in the books and his cannon arm, laser release and gaudy numbers are the stuff of legends. Still, he falls to three for the one blemish that haunts his career: he never won a championship.

Lynn Dickey Report Abuse
Played amazing football behind the worst lines in history. He made the flack jacket popular. If he had had some protection, he would have led the league in passing multiple times and won championships.

Find some video and watch him play. He may have been a better athlete than Starr, Favre, or Rogers. He certainly got little protection and was an inspiration for the flack jacket.

I origonally thought the same thing until he threw the game winning pass in the corner of the endzone to Holmes 2 years ago, not once but twice, in both corners of the endzone. He is ugly and a jerk but he can play.

You're joking right? Get this guy off the list, he would hardly be in my top 50 let alone top 25. Besides, only 1 ring.

Two rings in first five years and best qb outside the pocket! Hardest to bring down too. The best is yet to come!
