2nd Best NFL QB of All-Time?

2nd Best NFL QB of All-Time?

the tricky thing about this debate is....there are a few people in this world who will argue against Montana being number #1. Now we all know the reasons Montana is by popular vote the best all time.

Well, if you take that same exact reasoning, you would be hard pressed not to choose Brady as #2

I am not sure, if I think of Brady as #2 yet, but it would be very hypocritical of me if I don't

if montana is number one then my vote goes to brady followed by peyton, farve, marino, young and unitas... i really like Moon and Fouts too. ive based my decision on manning and brady on the assumption they will continue their level of play.

while although Brady is a great QB, he needed his kicker to win those SB's

It's easier to rack up comebacks when you put your teams behind in the first 3 qtrs.

So then why should Brady get votes then??? Vinatieri pretty much won those Super Bowls for him.

I had to go with Terry Bradshaw dude won 4 Super Bowls and is dumber than a box of rocks that’s overcoming the odds right there.

Brady please I see no votes for Jim Kelly that lead his team to four straight Super Bowls only difference between the two is a good field goal kicker.

If you are going to nominate John please spell Brodie correctly. or did you misspell Brady?

No I put my hand up on this one. I knew it wasn't right but my mind wasn't on it. Sorry BygRom!!! It was Brodie
Absolutely no question on this list it is Unitas. Alot of people probably never saw him though, kind of like me and Sammy Baugh. Unitas was amazing. Looking at some of the other older QBs on this list, Starr had so much talent along side him.

Joe Namath, not even worth commenting on. His claim to fame was a one time brag and his wealth of experience with the ladies. If he had played anywhere but NY, he wouldn't even be on this list.

Dan Fouts, man was that passing offense something, but never won the big one.

Len Dawson was very good also.

Marino, Kelly.....what big game did they win?

Tarkenton, as a kid I grew up in Minnesota and idolized him. Sorry, always
the bridesmaid never the bride.

Interesting thought though, how many on this list grew up in Pennsylvania?

Other: Montana (again). He's so good, even his 2nd best efforts still beats any QB who played the game.
Personally, I think that people put far too much weight on whether or not someone won big games. There are sooooooooo many factors that go into winning a football game, that no one person can do it by themselves, or come even close to doing it by themselves, IMO.

GOAT
May the good lord be with you
Down every road you roam
And may sunshine and happiness
Surround you when you’re far from home
And may you grow to be proud

Be courageous and be brave
And in my heart youll always stay

May your guiding light be strong
Build a stairway to heaven
With a prince or a vagabond

And may you never love in vain
And in my heart you will remain
Forever Steve Young, forever Steve Young
Forever Steve Young, forever Steve Young
Forever Steve Young
Forever Steve Young

And when you finally fly away
Ill be hoping that I served you well
For all the wisdom of a lifetime
No one can ever tell

But whatever road you choose
