    (1) Tom Brady - 3 rings and counting. Let a team to 16-0 and nearly the perfect season. He is awesome.

    (2) Joe Montana - Big Game Joe is probably #1 on everyone list but mine.

    (3) John Elway - A childhood fav of mine. Arm strength, accuracy, amazing athlete and great speed.

    (4) Peyton Manning - He is awesome

    (5) Dan Marino - Everyone knocks him for his post-season records, but his awesomeness is undeniable. Most 4th quarter comebacks in NFL history

    (6) Johnny Unitas - Deferring to my grandfather who always state Unitas was the best ever.

    (7) Terry Bradshaw - 4 rings, nuff said

    (8) Joe Namath - Great QB when not drinking

    (9) Steve Young - John Elway, but just not as good

    (10) Brett Farve - Too many Int, but the Iron Man is undeniably great

    Real ball players from the era when you could actually lay hands on a quarterback:

    Fran Tarkington
    Sammy Baugh
    John Unitas
    Bart Starr
    George Blanda

    Somewhere in between:
    Namath, Montana,, Staubach, Marino, Griese, Morrall, Manning

    Current crop of overly protected athletes who can do what they do well:





    nothing comes to mind

    Today's Detroit Lions would annihilate those old time teams/players.

    Also, most of those guys came from an era where it was believed that if you passed 40 times a game, you would lose.

    And today's pampered pets have never faced defenses that could end a career without thinking twice about it.

    Where is Bart Starr? Won 5 NFL championships including the first 2 Super bowls!

    Under the current rules they might be competative. But the rules were different back then too. The QB was a player and took hits like everybody else, they were not protected like a little baby. The recievers, there was no 5 yard rule and when they caught a ball they got hit. players played with broken arms and concussions, heck they played with hardly any pads either. The passing yards Brady gets would be halved under the old rules and he would have gotten hit every play. Those old guys were tough!

    Today's athletes, if given the ability to hit like the old time players were allowed to, would smash those old time teams even more so.

    The players back then didn't have off-season training programs, either.

    Today's defensive players are faster, stronger and harder-hitting than ever.
