    These are my top quarterbacks that I've seen play since Ive started watching football, ranked against each other in 5 different categories. The 1-5 is not ratings, but just how I rank them against each other. For example, arm strength, Brett has the strongest so hes 1st, Montana has the weakest so hes 5th.

    My explanations:

    Accuracy: None of these 5 qbs is more accurated than Joe Montana. Steve Young is a close second though. Elway is 5th based on his career comp. percentage of 56.9.

    Arm strength: This was actually pretty close. Elway had a cannon for an arm, but Brett's is just a little stronger. I think we would all agree that Montana has the weakest arm of the 5.

    Leadership:

    This was kind of a tough one. I had no problem putting Brett #1 here, but ranking the other 4 was tough.

    Toughness:

    Next question....But seriously, Dan Marino is 2nd based on the number of injuries he played through, and still played very well. He didnt move well, and got hit ALOT because of that. He had a 145 consecutive game streak before he hurt his achilles tendon in 1993. Joe Montana was very soft and I ranked him last in this one.

    Clutch:
    This one was easy. You dont get any more cltch than Joe Montana. His superbowl stats: 11 tds, no ints, 4 wins no losses. End of discussion. Elway is second based on his 47!!! 4th quarter comebacks. And Marino is last based on his bad playoff record.

    Nice chart MWFF. :thumbsup:


    I'd have to disagree with the leadership score, though. I think Broadway Joe was easily the greatest leader out of this group, and I might rank Elway 2nd. But that's just me.

    that was my thought...clutch and leadership for me go hand in hand...and no one was more clutch then joe..

    young for me would have to be higher on the toughness scale..even tho he got concusions he still was atough q/b when playing.

    Very interesting. A lot of us are too young to remember Unitas, Starr, and Otto Graham, and I'd wonder how they'd figure into this equation. They played in a different era though when guarding the forward pass wasn't so hindered.

    HOw about Fran Tarkenton as #1 for funnest to watch!? Anyone remember him juking, ducking, side stepping rushers and running for his life on every other play?

    Lynn Dickey for the sitting duck award?

    Jim Mc Mahon for the most rebellious?
