      Otto Graham has to be on any list.
      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

        While I realize this is a homer list due to Eli's inclusion, I like this for the simple reason that Brady isn't on it... Shift 2-5 up one spot, move Montana to the top, drop Elway in the list, and we're all set.

        I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

          Otto Grahan is WWAAAAAAYY before my time Morehead. Isnt his film in black and white? He was the best though for his time thats for sure, but it is so hard to really compare him to say a Peyton Manning. I guess Unitas is back then too though, but not in the 40s like Graham.
          WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

            late to the game but OP should include their picks in the 1st post.

            just sayin....

            off the top of my head....
            peyton - crazy stats on multiple teams but only 1 ring
            montanna - crazy stats, multiple teams and multiple rings
            brady - crazy stats and multiple rings.
            marino - the originator of crazy stats but no rings
            bradshaw - mediocre stats but has the rings

            honorable mentions;
            farve - yeah, he was a compiler but one must be very good to compile such stats. plus he has a ring and was mvp
            elway - FINALLY got it done and was a consummate competitor.
            unitas - better stats than bradshaw but im partial to terry.
            brees - another ring and the top 5 gets messy.

            thing is, the game has changed since the Namath days to now. and what is the criteria ? rings or stats or both......

            marino, moon, kelley, fouts, mcnabb, and rivers have the stats but no jewelry.
            guru peyton and brees have crazy stats but only 1 ring. same amount as simms, dilfer and williams..
            scrubby namath is a legend due to that one really good/fluky season.
            brady has 3 during a time of scandal and none since (0-2).
            then you have guys like bradshaw and aikman are proven winners with mediocre stats (avg 170 ypg and 200 ypg)
            eli avg 230 ypg and has 2 rings yet is scoffed at being a HOF type qb

            as with pitchers, the win stat is bloated. teams win. could a brady ''win'' if hes on a team not known for winning ? or will he need a lot of help, thus, making it a team win ?

            the top of my head list is pretty much the list id go by, come to think of it.

              im a big eli fan too BUT cmon. hes too generous with the ball. hes becoming more accurate though and hes tough as nails. hes a HOFer but not in the top 10. I like marino as well but peyton owns him. im not a brady fan but hes the goods. if this was a ''whos your FAVORITE qb'' thread......

                My top 5 QBs in no particular order-

                Tom Brady
                Joe Montana
                Dan Marino
                Bart Starr
                Brett Favre

                I expect that barring injury when all is said and done with his career that Aaron Rodgers will make this list.

                          yeps. at its most basic, we play more games and get bigger stats.

                              But you can't say one era was more or less challenging than another. Earlier eras had less rules protecting the QB, and often the QB had to call their own plays at the huddle (which only Peyton does nowadays). On the other hand, modern QBs need to be able to throw on the move a hell of a lot more and hit much smaller throwing windows than they used to.

                              I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                                Nah . . . still would have laughed at Favre in the top 5 of all time. Sorry.
