Shocking! Bradshaw is usually never mentioned; even with 4 SB rings! They usually overlook him due to so many other HOF'rs on his team I guess! I'd have to say the same for Montana, but few would agree! Brady would make my list since he's done it for over so many years with few other consistant team mates to help out! Rodgers will end up being on everyone's list before all is said and done; doing it all with passes and running ability! Tarkenton is at the bottom of my list without any rings and mostly doing his thing to inflate his own numbers; and little else! Hated Dallas, but I have a lot of respect for Staubach taking a lot of punishment for his team! Unitas was well before my time!

- 1) Bradshaw
- 2) Montana
- 3) Brady
- 4) Staubach
- 5) Rodgers (TBD)

No one picked Dandy Dan Marino?? Good Lord that man threw a pretty ball Clap

Troy was a pain in my ass (lol) and you gotta love Joe Willie. I still have a crush on that man (seen him this past weekend too at the HOF Induction, looking handsome as ever)!!

Who else .. Montana (loved that hit Jim Burt put on him, lmao) and Warren Moon's ball was pretty too.

Dan Marino would have to be included as should Elway and the guy from Dallas (can't remember his name but he played with Emmett Smith).

How about the guy from the Bills (forgot his name as well)? Didn't he take his team to the super bowl four years in a row?

Jim Kelly was better than Marino and Tarkenton as a leader of men! His numbers didn't come first like the later 2! He made 4 straight SB's; no one will ever do that again!

Kelly and Elway were real leaders and great quarterbacks. I think Brady has done more than those two over time though. I never cared for Fran the Man as a QB, but he was a good guy. Marino was an amazing talent--quickest release since Broadway Joe I have heard many say. He never had much running support, but he was fearless on the field. There were many greats, but the ultimate Field Marshal was Unitas--he called all his own plays and actually got into a row with a young coach by the name of Shula late in his career in Baltimore. Shula wanted to call plays. Unitas didn't roll that way too well, apparently. To me that is what puts him above Montana or Staubach--he not only threw, but masterminded the operation.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

OCO, instead of Brady? You're kidding right? No QB has been more of an underachiever than Peyton Manning! Even his brother has accomplished more in the post season! That's what it's all about and Peyton has shown himself to be a killer loser with all those regular season numbers that mean absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things! lol!

brady has 3 super bowl rings.

peyton manning: 1

that said, they are both going to be called all time greats by the football historians.

same with brett favre: just one ring but sitting on a few NFL passing records.

evidently he could scramble and was elusive as hell on the field

poor marino and francis tarkenton.

even that clown--trent dilfer--has a ring.

Fine, but I wouldn't replace Brady who has 3 SB rings to these losers who have none; no matter what their numbers are during the regular season! Overall, I think Moon would have surpassed them all if he had been able to compete legitimately, toiling in Canada! He still had an "arm" well past 40! Clap Angel

Brady made my 5 already, but I think you underappreciate Manning. He's like an old school operator running an offense, unlike some of the robots who's thinking don't extend beyond an earpiece.

Eli is fab too with his two SB rings!! I'm a Giants fan so you know Eli is coming with Wink

Honorable mention to Kurt Warner. He had a killer squad with the Rams and his arm was awesome. That was a great team to watch!!
