    Sonny was great but I saw him very late in his career. Same with Billy Kilmer.
    Talk about wounded ducks; these guys sure threw a bunch of them.

    Is that because he's a great quarterback, or is it simply because he's been around a long time?

    He is in the top 5 now in lots of categories' and is younger than Peyton Manning and Tom Brady so I am not sure I get your question?

    During the undefeated 1972 season, Bob Griese’s ankle was broken in Week 5 in the game vs the San Diego Chargers. He was replaced by veteran Earl Morrall for the rest of the regular season. Griese returned to the field as a substitute during the AFC Championship game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers and then started for Miami in Super Bowl VII.

    I'd pay to see Alonso, Hamilton, Vettel and Bottas in identical Ferrari 161s for one race. More exciting than last season.

    I don't want to get involved in this version of "top 100 guitarists of all time"...but I want to state my support for Peyton Manning and my belief that the accusations of him doping are pure BS. I have a lot of respect for him as an athlete and believe him to be the hardest working guy in football. Hope I'm right...

    this Manning thing is very weak.
    they are saying someone sent HGH to Manning's wife.
    thats it.
    they are not saying he used them, or he had any knowledge
    they were sent to his wife, or that she wanted them sent.
    Just that somebody sent them to her address.

    I'll take Sling Blade over Peyton for my Manning
    not because im a Giants fan either

    The person who claimed he used HGH has now come out and recanted his story.

    My favorites to watch:

    Dan Fouts
    Drew Brees
    Dan Marino
    Steve Young
    Warren Moon

    Mentions to Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Joe Montana, Peyton Manning and Aaron Rogers, any or all of whom may be better than my 5, but these are the dudes I tuned in just to watch. FWIW, none of these dudes have ever played for my favorite team. Go figure.

    Interception X 5 that's for sure.

    Gotta have Elway, Montana and Brady in there.... I'd probably put Marino too. I would say Peyton, but his post-season performances can't be ignored.

    For me it comes down to those that you want on your team with the game on the line, needing a touchdown in the last few minutes to pull out a close game.

    The old timers are ahead on style points for me. They had to call their own plays, and they didn't have all the creampuff rules that today's QB's benefit from. They got hit hard and often. Receivers didn't have the five yard rule that lets them run free down field - they could be hit hard anywhere until the ball was in the air. The QB's that put up the big numbers then earned those numbers in a way that todays quarterback will never get a chance to match. And you have to wonder what a John Unitas, Bart Starr, or Bob Griese could do under today's rules. We'll never know.

    Johnny Unitas at the top of the list. Calling his own plays, he would play head games with the DB's, set them up for the knockout when the knockout was needed.

    Joe Montana was another guy that played his best ball when the pressure was on.

    Bradshaw, maybe the toughest QB ever. I saw Bubba Smith pick him up and jam him headfirst into the ground as the first half expired, and they took him off the field on a stretcher. Second half, Bradshaw came out was throwing radar balls, blew the Colts off the field.

    Elway. If there's any time on the clock and it's less than a TD, he could win it and usually did.

    Peyton Manning. Another tough guy who can flat out play the game and plays his best under pressure. Any sensible person would have retired after the neck injury.

    Lots more greats not listed here. I left out all the whiners, so no Tom Brady.

    Well, Brees has always seemed like a Tier 2 QB to me. He's good, no question, but would he ever be anyone's first pick if they were building a fantasy team? He seems to get lost in the crowd when you start throwing around names like Manning, Rodgers, Brady, Newton, Wilson (until recently), and Roethlisberger.

    I'm probably wrong, but I've always thought of him in the Philip Rivers, Carson Palmer, Tony Romo group.
