Joe Montana Report Abuse
Like Marino, Montana is one of the best ever, but his reign was more 80s than 90s. Still did great things with the 49ers and Chiefs from 90-94.

Montana's my fave player of all time, but all his achievements, excepting 1990's NFL MVP, were in the 80s, no way should he be no.1 in this list, playing as he did in only 3 seasons(he missed ALL of '91 and you CANNOT count half a game versus Detroit in 1992). Yes, he had good years in '93 and '94, but they were NOT years comparable with his great seasons of the 80s, and certainly not comparable with the equivalent seasons of, for example, Steve Young, who topped the league in passing with in both of those seasons(as well as FOUR OTHERS in the 90s) and who won a Superbowl in the second of those two. Much as I love Joe, he is nowhere near no.1 for the 90s. 80's yes, sure. All time? Maybe, based on his 80s performance, but no way could you seriously suggest he was the quarterback of the 90s.

Why does everyone evaluate QBs on stats, ask anyone who watched both Montana & Younf at will tell you they'd take Montana in a sec, all these Young voters never watched Montana! Don't compare a whiney Young to Joe, he deserves better!

Dan Marino Report Abuse
One of the best of all time, most of his glory was in the 80s. However, he left his stamp on the 90s with continued excellence.

John Elway Report Abuse
After a hall of fame career, Elway finally earned his first Super Bowl in 1998. Then what did he do in 1999? He won the Super Bowl again. Then what did he do? He retried...maybe the only great QB to retire at the right time.

I think John Elway should be one or two quaterback.

Troy Aikman Report Abuse
If a QB is measured by championships, Troy Aikman is Number 1 of this decade winning three Super Bowls. The leader of one of the best teams in NFL history, he put up staggering numbers and was voted to six consecutive Pro Bowls.

Brett Favre Report Abuse
Where to begin? Three straight MVPs ('95, '96, '97), two Super Bowls, winning Super Bowl XXXI. Before he spent each off-season debating retirement, he was simply stunning.

Jim Kelly Report Abuse
Nobody has done what Jim has done. Four straight Super Bowl appearances. What's the bigger achievement, lead your team to four in a row or win one?

Brad Johnson Report Abuse
A Super Bowl would fall on him in the 2000s, but he earned a decent street cred in the 90s, namely with the Vikings and became the first Redskin QB to pass for over 4,000 yards.

Scott Mitchell Report Abuse
Have the Lions, really, had a better quarterback?

What the hell does that have to do with Scott Mitchell making your top 20??? Hmm..also..Mark Rypien, Randal Cunningham & especially Mark Brunell, Warren Moon and Jim Harbaugh all better than Bledsoe?? Whaaaat? That's Crazy!! Even Warner is a stretch, he landed on a super stacked team, don't get me wrong he was awesome but that's like saying Bledsoe or any other of your top 6 couldn't have done the same thing in the same situation! Think Bledsoe is being evaluated on the latter part of his career here. Again the fact that Mitchell is even on this list is belly aching laughable, Jeff George(whom I'm not a fan at all came in at tail end of his career and took B Jonson's job) Geesh, it's not about stats, it's about who do you want to come in and win you a game, Scott Mitchell, chg careers to standup!
