    1. Elway
    2. Montana
    3. Brady
    4. Unitas (much too old for my time but so I hear anyways)
    5. Marino

    Honorable mentions to Peyton Manning, Steve Young, Brett Favre. Tarkenton and Bradshaw are in the mix somewhere.

    Can't argue against anybody mentioned here. Would have to add Aikman, 3-0 super bowl record is impressive.

    That is how I would rank it.

    Drew Brees should be right up there.

    Qb's don't win superboels, teams do.

    Re: Top 5 NFL QBs of all time......

    Unitas
    Bradshaw, Staubach
    Montana, Elway, Marino
    Aikman, Young
    Manning, Brady

    Those are the top 10 guys I can think of. Unitas gets a top 5 nod cause he changed the football landscape and what people thought a QB could be. Bradshaw and Staubach, Manning and Brady, and Montana, Elway and Marino are natural rivals. In each one of those scenarios the better QB on skill isn't the most winning QB. I feel Manning is better than Brady, Elway and Marino were better than Montana, and Staubach is better than Bradshaw (although this is closer than the rest. Maybe it is because I was a kid but Marino, Elway and Montana are mythical (almost as much as MJ is to me) I don't see how those three guys in a Brady or Manning situation don't just dominate. So here goes my top 5 that means nothing.

    5. Aikman (Cowboys fan, #5 was pick'em for me so I will give the nod to my boy)
    4. Manning (Maybe the best student of the game, Not a big game QB)
    3. Montana (Best winner here, just not the greatest skills)
    2. Marino (Never a winner, but you can't argue with what he did, the team was never great, but he always game them a chance)
    1. Elway (Best skills of anyone on the post, finally figured out how to win (amazing what coaching and a running game will do) put him in any of these other guys spots and the team is better)

    I think childhood memories really cloud my judgement. That and a hatred of all things Patriots.

    Edit: I remembered Favre but for got to write him down, still doesn't change my top 5.


    A world without yoga pants and Planter's cheese balls, is a world I no longer want to live in.

    If the criteria is "Top 5 quarterbacks of the last 30 years", I like this list.
