    I thought super bowls didn't matter when determining a QBs legacy. That's what everyone says about Eli all the time...

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.

    Super Bowls, or lack thereof, play a role in any Super Bowl era QB's legacy. Marino's considered one of the greatest QB's of all time, but not having a Super Title is a mark against his legacy, fair or not.

    And despite having two Super Bowls, Eli's overall career up to this point doesn't have the same level of greatness that Marino's did which is why most people wouldn't put Eli in the same category with Marino.
    One of these teams is not like the others

    The issue is having guys like Starr, Unitas, Montana, Marino, vs guys like Brady, Manning, Rodgers, Brees ect. Its a completely different game now.
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    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.

    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.

    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.
