    This should end the thread but it hasn't.

    Not true at all. It's a team sport. QB is the most important position on the team, but winning the SB doesn't automatically make you the best QB for that year.

    The QB is the one who adapts to their team scheme the best. If you lost then you didn't adapt to the scheme that year. Doesn't matter if your Rodgers, Brady or Montana.

    I think they're both tough acts to follow, but Eli gets the edge. I am not looking forward to either of them leaving anytime soon

    Or you adapted just fine but got beat by a better team.

    If your the best QB in the league, you make sure team doesn't get beat by other teams,

    So, if as a QB you throw for 28/35 for 375 yards 4tds and no picks, but still lose it's on you?

    When does the best QB ever let that happen? Rodgers, Brady, manning.

    A QB can't control what their defense does. Did Peyton Manning blow the coverage against the Ravens, or was it Rahim Moore?
