Personally, I'd say its either Montana or Elway.

Montana has better stats, but he also had the benefit of playing on some great teams for his entire career.

Elway's stats are still good, but he also lead some teams to the playoffs that most other QBs couldn't have even lead to a winning record.

Poll inbound.

I'm a Pats fan, so this is biased, but Tom Brady could potentially go down as the greatest ever.

Montana.

In grew up in San Francisco in the 80's.

Most on the list are phenomenal qb's but Montana is the benchmark. He would be great even in today's game.

Staubach.

HE called his own plays.

Didn't need hand signals from the bench, or a radio receiver in his helmet.

There were many great QB's from his era, and many before.


Terry Bradshaw, Roman Gabriel, Bart Starr, Joe Namath.....These are but a few names....your list is lacking. It shows shortsightedness.

Why even make a poll, when you can't involve more than current players? Ask the question without a poll. Simple.

Example: "Who was the greatest QB of all time? I nominate......................"

Yep.

How many Super Bowls did Marino, Fouts, Kelly, Tebow win?

Zero between them all.

Stats for some of them (Tebow?!!! Why?)

But nary a Lombardi Trophy amongst the lot of 'em.

Sammy Baugh was a better QB than some on your list.

Goddamn Eli "Forrest Gump" Manning. I swear he could miss a pass all year and make it in the final quarter at the Super Bowl. Fuck him. Whitney  bitch ass of a QB. He looks and sounds like a moron.

Brady will retire with the most rings.  Hard to parody one era with another though.

99% of pros 20 years ago would not even be on the field today even taken in their prime.

Greatest ever is subjective, but there are a few very well rounded QB's.

Montana and Brady are probably the two that stand out for me.  Neither are overly nimble or particularly athletic when compared to Randal Cunningham or Steve Young, but they can march a team down the field with incredible precision in the 2 minute offense.  

The honorable mentions are too long to list.

Brady.  He was always underrated and dismissed. On paper, his skill set isn't impressive not the fastest, not the strongest arm, not a big QB etc... BUT, he finds a way to win, is extremely competitive and has a strong will.
For someone who was passed over a number of times in his football journey, he is one tenacious guy.

Edit : I voted Manning on the poll just to get a vote in. Seriously though , we saw what happened to Colts when he didn't play for a season. He carried that team to multiple division titles , playoff wins and a Superbowl win. And never had more than 1 or 2 good players supporting him. The colts were trash without him.

Okay.. so let me admit this...

When I was 6 years old I asked for a Packers helmet for Christmas. I loved football, but all I knew was that Bart Starr was the best.. lol

My Mom and Dad both tried to talk me out of it, said Santa wouldn't bring a Packers helmet to Texas. They knew what was what. But I wanted it.. And Santa brought it!  

Took a couple of years until I realized the error of my ways.

More options by Ed are not needed. A BETTER list is needed. Tim Tebow? Really? Greatest of all time? Really? Why is he even a consideration? Is he EVEN a QB?
