Contemporary QBs dominate everyone list however..Sammy Baugh deserves to be on the list..Baugh is still considered one of the top 5 QBs ever to play in the NFL

Um pretty sure elway won two Super Bowls to Payton's 1 so there is some truth to his statements.
I would say that you'd have to put them on categories.
^______ what he said!
It is hard to call anybody right or wrong with these lists since it is so subjective. I will leave off otto graham only because the game has changed so much since then, but he could be right up there. I also will take current players stats with a grain of salt, as the rule changes have completely devalued many of the numbers.
My top group includes unitas, montana, marino, elway, manning. I could go with any of these.
My next group is farve, staubach, bradshaw, kelley, aikman, brady, tarkenton, young, fouts, moon.
Others that I really liked, but don't quite measure up are namath, stabler, starr. These guys are great, but I have them a notch below. I am not sure where to put brees or big ben yet.
Some of the non hall of famers that still had IT, whatever that is, and could heat it up in a hurry when needed include kosar, flutie, boomer,
There are others I might add later. Enjoy
Peyton Manning. I think what he is doing now in Denver speaks for how great he really is.
Guys like Montana, Elway, Marino, Young, Unitas, Brady all deserve to be in the discussion.
Personally I would like to see how Brady would perform on a different team. Bledsoe was putting up numbers before he was injured and Brady took over. Matt Cassel had a phenomenal year when Brady was hurt, then went to KC and is just horrible.
1. John Unitas
2. anyone else
1. Tom Brady
Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. Hard to argue it though. Has thrown to absolutely no one that will end up in the HOF. Continually throws for 300+/game and his TD/INT ratio has to be on record pace.
He's better than Peyton...and I love Peyton.
I would probably go (without thinking too hard):
(and I could be talked out of 2-5 very easily.)
Tom Brady is the best. I hate to admit it, but he may win a 4th this year.
Montana was virtually unbeatable in his prime. Elway played incredible and made an average team very good, never forget the 80 yard play-off drive against the Browns that cost me $500. Third would be Tom Brady he reminds me alot of Montana.
What about Wes Welker and Randy Moss? And Rob Gronkowski looks like he could be headed towards a HOF career.
4. Otto Graham
10. Greg Cook
Like to see other categories like best scrambler, best 2 minute drill, best for various decades.
Unitas for old timers, Tarkenton for scrambler, rest Ill go with pape cause I dont care.
Nobody carried there team more then John Elway. He took average Broncos teams to 3 superbowls in the 80s. Finally got his rings with TD in the backfield in the end.
I would put Manning up behind Marino, because he had little support staff as a whole. Look what happened when you took Manning off that team, and Marino off his team. 1-2 wins or whatever?
Montanta as good as he was, is always a tough one for me because those teams were loaded with talent. I don't think he cold have carried a Colts or a Dolphins team that Marino or Manning had. At the same way, look how stacked Steelers dynasty was, especially on D, and Bradshaw's stats were not stellar by any means. How many QBs still achieve the same success Bradshaw had with the Steelers with all that talent?
Good days, bad days --- always a Buckeye. Time to begin the assault on the 2014 BCS National Championship
Nice spin. Now post yards, TD's, playoff wins, etc...
False? Last I checked Elway won 2 Super Bowls and Favre does have better stats than Manning.
