    Fran. He never won one but he sure could run from the defense. :^O :^O

    This is like asking “what is the best _________”?

    Yep and “all time” isn’t even over yet! The funniest part is seeing the responses from guys in their 20s talking about greatest of all time. But then I’m sure they find responses from 50+ guys like me amusing as well. Personally I have no intention of voting in a poll that doesn’t include guys like Roman Gabriel, Ken Stabler, Tarkenton, and where Roger the Dodger’s name is butchered. Every one of these guys brought something great to the game and truth of the matter is as great as he was, Montana played in a new offensive scheme from a brilliant coach. With his average arm, he’d have a difficult time with the lightning quick defenses of today who understand that offense and how to stop it. But that’s just me…… [=}=][/quote:1wdyur22]

    I’m going to have to agree with NC here….I think it would be more appropriate to break down the “greatest” into time categories (i.e. decades like the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s, etc.) There are way too many great QB’s that would be left off a “greatest of all time” list IMO. Let’s not forget that a lot of the QB’s on the list had great receivers that helped make them look good. :2cents

    Don’t claim he was the greatest, but it’s too bad you guys never got to see Russ Jackson play (many NFL teams tried to get him south of the border). He could run and he could throw, but most of all, he was an extremely imaginative QB.

    There are three reasons why Unitas is the best ever:
    1) He revolutionalized the game turning it from a “3 yards and a cloud of dust” mentality to an attacking, aggressive, offensive mindset. And he did it in an era when wide receivers could be literally tackled at the line of scrimmage and mugged while running pass routes.

    2) He put the NFL on the map with his play calling and performance on December 28, 1958 in a sudden death victory for the Baltimore Colts in what is widely regarded as The Greatest Game Ever Played.

    and 3) He was mentioned on the Flintstones as Johnny Stonitus. No other quarterback in the history of the game has that honor.[/quote:3e89iacj]

    Plus, he put Indianapolis on the map.[/quote:3e89iacj]

    I think it might have been Baltimore. :^O :^O :^O

    Otto Graham – 10 professional seasons, 10 championship games, 7 titles. Way back when QBs called their own plays, DBs could mug WRs, no one wore facemasks, clotheslines were legal, and QBs could wear the #60.

    Of the modern day guys, my favorite is Elway. I don’t know that he was the best, but I’d put him up against anybody.

    i vote for a different Joe, Joe Theisman. if it weren’t for a career ending injury ( that leg sounded nasty when it crunched), his name would be all over the record book, as a plus he has several SB rings! Fran Tarkenton is a top 5, best scrambler to ever play the game. Dan Marino was a hot head, so ive never cared for him, and therefore wouldnt put him on a list of the greatest. in the end, Peyton Manning will probably be the best ever, assuming he has a few more years without injury.

    If the list included Terry Bradshaw….he got my vote hands down! The person who listed the greatest QB of all time clearly overlooked my good ol’ beloved Steelers QB. Heck, son, he helped Steelers win 4 Super Bowls. Tough as nails QB who bounced back from serious injuries and still played football like a crazy Southerner boy that he was!

    If I have to pick today QB…it would be between those two: Tom Brady (a genius engineer who doesn’t lose confidence) and Ben Rothelisberger (a crazy risky dangerous QB who can take and lick hits which ended up either a big loss or gain). Those two QBs knows how to play the game but which one’s a tougher QB? Of course, Big Ben! If Peyton Manning wins another SB, he gets my nod of that pick automatically in my NFL Fantasy League if he comes up available in the draft pool.

    Gotta go with two: Johnny Unitas (old school) and Peyton Manning (modern day). Both personally controlled the game and could outthink any opponent on the fly. Never mind that they had/have the ability to perfectly dissect a team to win once they figured them out.

    On this list ya gotta vote Montana, although, I do feel Peyton Manning will end up the best of all time eventually. It’s like having an offensive coordinator lining up behind center each play!!

    For anybody that says Aikman over Bradshaw………C’mon!!!!! Thats a JOKE!!! Aikman was one of the most overrated QB’s of all time. I mean Bradshaw might have been a product of his envirmont as well, but seriously…..Aikman……All time best…… :^O

    TRAITOR! :p You a Pitts guy. C’mon! I grew up in Canton, Ohio. Always a Steelers…never a Browns guy. Why I never root for the Browns? Lemme let y’all in a secret: each and every ball game the Browns play in Cleveland, what did they do to their fans after the game? The fans left the stadium walking with brown-lined underwear! Oh, gross! #-o
