    Kind of shows how the NFL is nowadays since 7 of that 10 are currently playing and another only retired a few years ago.

    Plus, 11th is Matt Schaub. That should also emphasize your point. Higher passer ratings are normal in today's game.

    I cant believe Phillip Rivers is still on that list after he has been a turnover machine the last couple of years.

    It's one of the reasons why I HATE HATE HATE the bump and run coverage rule change of 1978.

    While there may be a slight bump in overall averages, I would suggest that it isn't simply due to advantageous rules for offenses. I think there are a lot of elements that go into these better rated quarterbacks.

    I think one of the biggest reasons why QB ratings are up is a bit misleading. And that is the use of short, high percentage throws. QBs throw more passes, and shorter routes. Resulting in less interceptions, higher completion rating, and more yards. Which tends to stack QB ratings.

    The best sign of a good quarterback is their completion rating in comparison with their yards per attempt and touchdowns per attempt.

    Tony Romo is 6th in completion percentage in nfl history, 6th in yards per attempt in nfl history, 27th in touchdown percentage in nfl history.

    All of which he has done without a stellar offensive line.

    I think it also shows the uselessness of the QB rating as a stat.

    It's not useless at all. It just depends on how it's being used.

    Yes, I agree as a Pats fan. Montana to me is the best that ever played the game as QB. He was flat out amazing and used to enjoy watching him just hit the field. Just the best. And I have never been a San Fran fan. Never, but it is a pleasure to watch the best play.

    And I also think Brady is just so underrated, no he is not Montana, but WHO was??? I sat in the Pats stadium and watched loser Bledsoe have a another losing season, he goes down (what was he 1 and 4 then) -- thanks to the Jets - and the same team goes on to win a SB with Brady. Same team. And I know the comments that will be coming, but I choose to ignore them. Same team, but the results quite different. He is a winner and worked at it to become one of the best ever.

    But Montana at number 10 is the most stupid thought that I can even believe. Duh, number 1. Period.

    I would not go this far but, I would certainly put him on that very short list of QBs who could be in the running as the very best and that list would consist of no more then 5 if that many.
