The Top Ten

1 Tom Brady Tom Brady ...read more.

Greatest QB ever to play the game of Football. As of 2013 he has led the New England Patriots to 5 Super Bowls, winning 3. He was the Super Bowl MVP in 2 of the 3 Super Bowl Wins. He has been elected to 8 Pro Bowls and holds the NFL Record for most TD passes in a single season with 50. He has the most Playoff wins out of any player ever with 17. He has the longest consecutive winning streak ever with 21 consecutive games. He led his team to the first undefeated season since the institution of 16 regular season games. He has won 2 NFL MVP awards and was Athlete of the Year in 2007. He is also the first QB to lead his team to 10 Divisional Titles. He has countless other awards and titles but this is getting too long. All of this and he was drafted in the 6TH ROUND!?

One of the best clutch abs of all time and shows that he's not a one trick pony by boasting a great regular season and playoff record. Can put up huge numbers when given good receivers 2007-2012 and can win even with scrubs around him 2001-2006 and 2013. Truly one of the greats

Have these people ever met tom brady. He is like the best player ever. I bet these people don't watch college football

Best player ever

2 Joe Montana Joe Montana Joseph Clifford "Joe" Montana, Jr., nicknamed Joe Cool and The Comeback Kid, is a retired American football quarterback.

Apparently, in scouting reports he was called "cocky" and that "he lacked the tools for a NFL quarterback". Well, here we are in 2017, still gazing at his achievements, and, hey, I know it was the draft stock, but, really? Third round?!

greatest qb ever and in the 3rd round?! its a no brainer

I don't like the 49ers but how is joe Montana not number 1? - Elwood

4 superbowls, enough said.

3 Brett Favre Brett Favre Brett Lorenzo Favre is a former American football quarterback who spent the majority of his career with the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

Drafted by the falcons, traded to green-bay sat behind " the majic man" and got a lucky starting spot and took the green bay packers to the first Super Bowl since 67 got into a car accident, rehabbed and held more passing records then any qb in nfl history definitely the greatest at his position no doubt!

he's the greatest football player of allllllllllll tiimmmeee. period. - jwileson

Didnt pronounce name right on draft day.

4 Johnny Unitas Johnny Unitas John Constantine Unitas, nicknamed "Johnny U", or "The Golden Arm", was an American professional football player from the 1950s through the 1970s. V 1 Comment
5 Kurt Warner Kurt Warner Kurtis Eugene "Kurt" Warner is a former American football quarterback, a current part-time TV football analyst, and a philanthropist.

So underrated now he's actually playing really well with Arizona this year. TD should not be ahead of him and his career was cut short so what if he had stayed healthy he might have been the all time leading rusher he didn't and now he's a analyst on the nfl network. I'm sick of people and there stupid "what if"s it didn't happen get over it. - Chris-1

Former Hyvee stocker and 2 time MVP

6 Fran Tarkenton

Drafted in the third round. - BurtReynoldsWig

7 Steve Young

Greatest Rushing QB of all time, and has most TD passes in a Super Bowl (6)

8 Terell Davis

Thurman Thomas (2nd round) above TD (6th round)? TD could be a #1 and still be ahead of Thomas. Buffalo 0-4 in SBowls... :).LMAO - 144mango

Terrrel Davis was one of the few RB's to get over 2000 yrds in a season ever , he may go to the football hall of fame!

in my oppinion if his career wasnt cut short he would be the alll time leading rusher

9 Thurman Thomas
10 Dick "Night Train" Lane

The Contenders

11 Steve Largent Steve Largent

No one had beter hands then Steve Largent. - gocanes52

He's pretty big around Seattle now - aman28

12 Ray Guy

Actually Ray Guy is the only punter ever drafted in the first round. (not counting two-way players or kicker hybrids)

Bro this guy is beast he has NEVER gotten a punt for a TD in his whole career!

13 Deacon Jones Deacon Jones David D. "Deacon" Jones was an American football defensive end in the National Football League for the Los Angeles Rams, San Diego Chargers, and the Washington Redskins.

26 sacks in 14 games, anchored the rams defense, played for so long... from a 14th round draft pick. whoever votes on these must not know about football before the 90's.

this guy invented the word sack, how is he not in the top 5? he had 26 sacks in a 14 game season. this list is awful.

14 Terrell Owens Terrell Owens Terrell Eldorado Owens is an American football wide receiver who played for the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers, and Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League.
