Best Quarterbacks in NFL History

The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Bob GrieseRobert Allen "Bob" Griese is a former American football quarterback who earned All-American honors with the Purdue Boilermakers before being drafted in 1967 by the American Football League's Miami Dolphins.

Could do it all. Always put the team first. Called his own plays.

Led the Miami Dolphins to consecutive Super Bowl wins and used the talent around him to take his team to the scores that were needed to win. Had more career touchdowns (192) than interceptions (172) and was known for his ability to adjust his play to the circumstances that existed.

Ok. This list is bad. Joe Montana is good. So is manning and Marino. But TOM BRADY? Tom Brady relies on his kicker to win Super Bowls. And he's only won one more than griese. Your insane if you think Garo won superbowls for the dolphins cause he nearly lost one. What is RG3 doing ahead of McNabb and Griese? RG3 has potential but he isn't wonderful like griese and mcnabb - Biggyepicness

He not only could make a passing play but was willing to make a run strait through the enemies defense if he could score a first down!

43Donovan McnabbDonovan Jamal McNabb is a former American football quarterback who played in the National Football League for thirteen seasons.

Donovan McNabb should most defitnitly be in the top 10 or 25 he is one of the three qb's to go to five championships and a superbowl 22 consecutive completions against the packers 5 td's this guy is mobile crazy. He is # four on the top ten black qb's come on now give the man some credit he's up there with brady and manning if he would have won that super bowl but that didn't happen

He is better than Michael vick any day, should be to 25.

He should be higher than CunningHam - Top10enner

He's good on the Eagles.

44Bobby Layne

He was the master of the two minute drill before there was a two minute drill.

You have evidently never warched Bobby Layne play QB/Football-sensational

45Matt Schaub

Why the heck is Andrew Luck in here he is a rookie

He was good with the Texans now with the Falcons at backup his really showing his age of decline which means he should be lower. - htoutlaws2012

Matt Schaub Is Awful. All He Does Is Make Mistakes. You People Who Made This List Don't Know Football!

Currently backs up the much lower-rated Joe Flacco. That is, when Schaub isn't hurt, which is most of the time.

46Doug Flutie

He made good things happen whenever he was on the field and made all kinds of unique plays. He was held back from greatness because of his size

Flutie was magic. Bills treated him badly and Johnson choked!

my absolute favourite to have ever watched. Football is not the same without him

He's better then Montana

47George Blanda

Did everything and played forever, but not in the top 50 of all time QBs.

Should be higher not a lot of QB's can literally play in there 50's you have to respect that R.I.P. - htoutlaws2012

49Kyle Orton

So this guy is 30th with only 3 3000 yard passing seasons in his career and Warren Moon and Kurt Warner aren't even on the list? What a JOKE.

Why is Orton in top hundreds. he sucks. Tim Tebow beat him out in preseason

50Matt Hasselbeck

He was the best QB for Seattle for awhile until Wilson arrived arghh. His somewhat turning around the Colts as a backup. - htoutlaws2012

I wish the saehawks kept him as backup I mean tavarious Jackson sucks

51Len Dawson

Should be higher, stats and winning seasons, Super Bowls back it up. A pinpoint passer who could also throw the long ball

Very under-rated Put up very good stats in an era when it was much harder to complete passes.

Highly under-rated quarterback. His passing game is among the best.

Excellent quarterback. So smooth to watch

52Matthew StaffordJohn Matthew Stafford is an American football quarterback for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

He is on a bad team, this kid has potential to be in the top 30 at least - RPD6478

Still not even in top 60, but there's still time.

Not top 70, can't believe he made the top 50. - htoutlaws2012

He's the best no doubt.

53Daryle Lamonica

Correction! Namath had nothing to loose when he predicted a super bowl win over the Baltimore Colts!

On a windy cold day in the AFL championship game where Lamonica's Pass was called a lateral for a Jets TD,

If called an incomplete pass, Lamonica and the Raiders would have beat the Colts in the Super Bowl and "Lamonica "is in the Hall! Compare his stats to Namath!

Of Fame not Namath! That's Football

The mad bomber.
Daryle Lamonica went 66-16-6 as a starter, good for an .801 winning percentage, best in NFL history.

Lamonica was a true Winner Tops All other Q.B's in Modern Nfl.era in winning.801%

Always made the games Exiting and played hurt all the time!

Always outplayed Namath! Just put Namath at #40 and Lamonica at #10. Namath had nothing to loose on the Super Bowl win!

Great Quarterback, true competitor and exciting to watch.

56Ken StablerKenneth Michael "Ken" Stabler, nicknamed "Snake," was an American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Oakland Raiders, Houston Oilers and New Orleans Saints.

Could win any close game in the last 2 minutes

Ken Stabler is easily a Top Twenty QB. Whatever order you want to place him... This league MVP, 4 time ProBowl, All time passing leader for the Raiders to this day, belongs in the Hall of Fame. He is the on the All decade team for the 70's and must take his rightful place in Canton.

Just look at how many times he led the raiders to the afc finals and he won a superbowl at a time when the steel curtain was at its best.

He should be in top 30

57Vinny Testaverde

he is in the top 25 in yards, touchdowns, games, and has been around forever. he was signed by Carolina on Thursday and got a win for them on Sunday at the age of 45, wow, he has the stats, and is still a great quarterback.

58Gary Danielson

Always slighted , but still one of the greats.

59Jake Plummer

Plummer's biggest problem was that he was Drafted by an team with little to no talent, he had to force the ball to get anything going and when he was finally traded to a team where he had something to work with he was so use to forcing the ball that he was never given a chance to develop

Underrated but he was the best bootleg

60Ken Anderson

He is to low on the list. He went to the super bowl with no top players.

Name a better quarterback from his era. Go ahead. I'll wait. - David29414
