    Who is the Greatest Quarterback of All Time?

    What is your criteria? Over the decades the game has changed and evolved, every era has had their greats. Who is the greatest? I listed 12 QB's not sure if I left anyone who could be considered as a top QB.


    Make your case of who is the greatest.

    Tom Brady. The proof is in last night's game. One important part of being a good QB is being a good leader and being able to lead the team to victory. To be able to keep the fire in the bellies of the players last night was pretty darn good leadership and motivational skills, considering how far behind they were. However, they never gave up and kept on fighting until the end and that is all due to good leadership and incredible motivation and determination.

    I went with Terry Bradshaw because of Brady working with the much better coach and organization but I consider it more of a photo finish than a runaway win. The Pats do well even without Brady

    Montana: Leadership, Control of Emotions, clock management, accuracy of passes, field of vision and the ability to run if and when necessary.

    One example: In the final minutes of the 1989 Super Bowl Montana led an 11-play, 92-yard drive to score the winning touchdown. In order to calm his teammates in the huddle just before the final game-winning drive, Montana pointed into the stadium crowd and said "Hey, isn't that John Candy?"

    Then and there he earned the nickname, Joe Cool.

    Who has the most super bowl appearances and rings? Patriots and Brady are not my team, but they are winners.

    ^ This. Credit where due

    Might want to put Eli Manning up for consideration as well. Without hitting David Tyrell on the helmet Brady would be 6-1

    What do you mean out of place? Are you saying he shouldn't be on there?

    That is what I meant......I got to watch him a lot in college as my roommates were from CO,,,Tommy Kramer was our QB at the time....to be honest they seemed pretty comparable. I dont think winning a SuperBowl or 2 necessarily elevates you to this discussion.....
