    Good players can be on average or worse teams for significant portions of their career. I tend to lean away from team win/loss records for that reason.

    I do not embrace it strongly but I would lean more towards team postseason win/loss records as a reflection of how well the player performed as an individual player on an above average team. In that regard, Jim Plunkett (8-2) and Eli Manning (8-4) are still similar but does show how well they and their better teams performed after the regular season ended.

    Dumbest list I've ever seen. As is typical for someone who wasn't watching the game in the 70s and earlier, this list works against players who played in the old system where the QBs had much, much less protection, were never allowed to throw the ball away, and there was no bump and run; the defender could rough up the receiver till the ball was in the air. Also, anyone who would rank Brett Favre above Roger Staubach is a moron. And only one player in tier 1?

    Is there some kind of contest to be as clueless as possible? Whoever made this list might win.

    It is impossible to rate QB across decades. The game evolves too much.
    Fact.

    As strange as it may seem Bradshaw with four rings is rarely mentioned with the great ones. Wonder why? Maybe the Hollywood Henderson cat joke? :lmao2:

    well you know he only stole one as a starter. If Montana had stayed, we wouldn’t know his name.

    Eli Manning couldnt sniff the jockstrap of Staubach even on his worse day if said jockstrap was shoved in Eli's face and someone had a gun to him saying sniff!

    Comical.

    Staubach and Aikman were better than Steve Young and Brett Farve.

    This must be heavily influenced by passing stats and NOT by winning.

    Aikman was as accurate as anybody.

    He didn't adlib well but he was often called robo QB due to his uncanny accuracy.

    Anybody remember the Tuinei with the gatorade bottle on his head story...
