GREATEST QB OF ALL TIME

GREATEST QB OF ALL TIME

No. 1   JOE MONTANA 

No surprise here. 4 SBs. He also threw for 11 TDs and 0 picks in those 4 SB wins.

He had a 120 passer rating.

“Cool fact: Montana is, of course, known for leading the San Francisco 49ers to a comeback win over Dallas in the 1981 NFC Championship Game. Two years later, he almost brought the Niners back from a 21-0 deficit in the ’83 title tilt — but alas, San Francisco fell in Washington, 24-21.” By Elliot Harrison

bradyNo. 2  TOM BRADY

Three SB wins, and is a clear second place. First ballet HOF for sure. And in my opinion, the best to play the game since Montana. It is amazing to watch him dissect the defenses year in and year out.

unitas No. 3  JOHNNY UNITAS

Before my time, but history and fans vote.

“Unitas was the top quarterback of the NFL’s first 50 years. He was also the first signal-caller to develop an intuitive sense of timing with his top receiver, so as to be able to complete passes in the most adverse of conditions. That player was Raymond Berry, who, like Unitas, has a bust in the Hall of Fame. Unitas won back-to-back championships with the Baltimore Colts in 1958 and 1959, and he was the all-time leader in passing yards and touchdown passes when he retired.”

 nfl_g_marino11_300No. 4 DAN MARINO

Probably my personal favorite. Watching him set yardage and TD records was just unreal.

“In 1984, Marino put together what was, quite simply, the best offensive season ever: He racked up 5,084 yards and 48 touchdown passes in an era when defensive backs were both excellent and allowed to play ball.” By Elliot Harrison

Cool fact: To say Marino was dominant from the get-go might be an understatement. He took the Miami Dolphins to the AFC Championship Game in his second season, throwing for 421 yards in that matchup … on just 21 completions! That’s 20 yards a pop. And Miami won, too.” By Elliot Harrison
