2 Tom Brady Tom Brady Thomas Edward Patrick Brady, Jr., is an American football quarterback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League. Brady is known for being the only quarterback in history to win 6 Super Bowls, and is often considered one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Brady is also frequently ...read more.

6 super bowl rings. The Steelers have the most as a franchise with 6. Most clutch player ever. Most accomplished ever. We will never see what the patriots are doing right now ever again.

So many salty people hating on Brady... not even a fan of his but he's obviously a great talent that was fortunate and got to play for great teams. 6 rings in football is unreal. Recognize greatness and stop being so whiny!

Jealousy of Brady and the Patriots is delicious to watch. Go Pats!

He is the GOAT!

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

"The Comeback Kid" -- JOE COOL is the coolest quarterback ever! Just take a look at all of his SUPER BOWL rings; plus all of 'em MVP awards! Yep. All of 'em rings don't lie... agreed? Indeed, Joe was so awesome that throughout his career, he was the most LETHAL quarterback ever, inside of the 4th quarter; especially when his team was down, with only minutes or seconds on the clock... and that's when he would create his "magic"... and score all of 'em legendary game winning touchdown passes, when he was under extreme pressure -- and that's what makes him LEGENDARY... indeed, sometimes it seemed that TIME would stop, just for him... and while everybody was frozen in time, he would take his time and then -- BOOM! Touchdown Baby! "And the Niners win another SuperBowl"... was the typical comment for FOUR of 'em Big Games... just take a look at the highlights of one of his biggest games ever -- Super Bowl 23... it was so memorable... that today, his last play is simply known as... "THE ...more

Tom Brady SUCKS GO JOE!

He is that guy you always saw in movies or in books who would make a comeback in the final seconds of the championship, well they were all fake, except Joe Cool. He was so calm, when anyone else was about to run away. Did you ever think he could do what he did against the Bengals in the Super Bowl?

To the moron that stated that Montana shouldn't even be in the top 100- he's the greatest quarterback ever at the hardest position to play in sports-Brady is a close 2.. So how is he not in you're top 100? Let alone top 5.. You are a moron

4 Barry Sanders Barry Sanders Barry Sanders is a former American football running back who spent his entire professional career with the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

He is simply the best because he played for the lions and had to carry the team on his back

Barry is the best running back EVER!

BARRY SANDERS was unbelievable... he was amazing... he was incredible... and his flawless plays were BREATHTAKING... like a musical piece... every single play was a work of art -- a MASTERPIECE! Indeed, I was NOT a Lions fan... I was NEVER a Lions fan (i'm a lifelong 49ers fan)... but nonetheless, me and my friends would always get together, turn on the T.V. and 'em speakers, fire up the grill, and enjoy a few beers with the BBQ... all of this, while watching the GREAT ONE do his thing! Yep. We would only get together to WATCH Barry Sanders play! NOT the Lions -- Barry Sanders! That's it! And we would NEVER miss a game! It was like watching a Michael Jordan not on the basketball courts, but instead on the green NFL fields... indeed, Barry Sanders was untouchable, unstoppable... just like Michael Jordan... LEGENDARY... and he would create moves that just do NOT exist, because they are NOT humanly possible! He would still make these unforgettable plays... he was so damn fast and so damn ...more

He's a goat

5 Walter Payton Walter Payton Walter Jerry Payton was an American football running back who played for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League for thirteen seasons.

I was a teammate of Walter Payton! The best there ever was Hands Down!

The greatest of all times.

Payton gets overlooked because of the Bears great defense. But for those of us that had the privilege of watching Walter Payton in the mid 70's & early 80's -- Trust me - the Bears did not have a great defense until the end of his career. In 1982 the NFL went on strike -- Payton would have rushed for over 1,000 yards 10 consecutive seasons if the strike did not happen -- (Barry Sanders rushed for 1,000 yards 10 consecutive seasons) -- Another fact many do not get is Walter Payton played 3 of his NFL seasons when the NFL only played 14 games -- He rushed for 1,852 yards in 1977 - a 14 game season - imagine if he had 2 more games like today's players have? At the pace he had in 1977 (132 yds per game) he would have had 2,117 yds in a 16 game season -- Yes, Emmitt Smith broke his all time rushing record -- Only because Smith played 15 seasons (Payton Played 13 Seasons) and Smith carried the ball 4,409 times - Payton 3,838 times -- Payton is the best football player/running back I have ...more

Sanders was truly great, Payton was far better and more versatile, Sweetness should be number 1.

Just wow an amazing player..

LT is the greatest linebacker of all time

He just dominated, he gave huge, fierce hits. He was a defender, and was named NFL MVP in 1986. Nobody has done it since, tell me that isn't something! He was a sack machine. The NFL has never seen a defender like him, and probably never will again.

Everything about the way football is played today is due to him. He was an unstoppable force.

7 Jim Brown Jim Brown James Nathaniel Brown is a former professional American football player and actor. He was a running back for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League from 1957 through 1965.

If you watch videos of jim he is insane and nobody else could do what he does

There's a few you can argue are the GOATs - Tom Brady, Jerry Rice, Peyton Manning, Barry Sanders, Lawrence Taylor, Joe Montana, Emmitt Smith but I went with Jim Brown. So far ahead of his time and like Barry Sanders (who I really think it's a tie with Brown and Sanders) he retired in his prime, he could've continued to add to his legacy. Jim Brown is the man

Jim Brown not only did it in lesser games & put up with the days of the 50s & 60s. Defenses designed to stop only him, he was a speaker for people who had no voice! He also quit in his prime.

Jim Brown is arguably the best running back of all time and I say he is, definitely is the best Browns player of all time and always will but on an unrelated note Tom Brady is good but not that good.

Tom Brady. The guy who won 4 SBs. The guy who was drafted with the 199th pick in the sixth round. The guy who has more playoff wins than most NFL franchises. The guy that had receivers nobody can name. Who is Aaron Dobson? The guy that had over 50,000 passing yards in his career. The guy that Peyton Manning struggled to beat. And he's not a good quarterback? #Really? - Danmarino4

The best ever!

ENOUGH about Tom Brady this and Tom Brady THAT. If he was so great, he wouldn't have DEFLATED the ball against the Colts! MY FAVORITE STINKING TEAM! - luckycayden

So, Peyton does only have 1 "ring". But that is a team accomplishment, if we are talking about individual, then I have another R word... RECORDS. Peyton has more records than any other player, more MVP's, took two different teams to the Super Bowl. Tom Brady is good, no doubt, but he is also the recipient of great play from teammates and unbelievable coaching. New England has a system that's second to none. Indianapolis went 2-14 without Manning, New England went 11-5 without Brady. Nothing against Brady, but Manning has done way more from an individual stand point. Also, with the ring talk, that is a dumb argument. Peyton only has one, so does Bernie Kosar. He was Troy Aikman's backup in Dallas when they won it. If rings are all that determine a player's greatness, then Peyton is no better than Bernie Kosar, right? Sorry Bernie, and I'm a Browns fan (WOOF WOOF), but I would take Peyton any day over Kosar. Rings are great, but it determines the greatness of a team, not players. - FONZIEjacket61

A revolutionary legend. Greatest QB and player.

he's the greatest... look at all the records and super bowl ring - jwileson

Let's see his records... Longest pass in super bowl history (99 yards) Super Bowl MVP. Oldest quarterback ever in his 40s and was running until 2014

Brett should be number one. Too bad he might retire.

He was a machine, he was just unstoppable, he could probably get around anybody, Anthony Munoz, John Hannah anybody. It would be mortifying to see Reggie White looking at you across the line of scrimmage. There would be no use in trying to block the destructive, Reggie White.

Reggie White should be number 7. He should at least make the top Ten. Also, where are Ray Lewis and Tony Gonzalez? For me Lewis is 2 and Gonzalez is 5.

Reggie White was the best on the Eagles!

He was number one in the national football league

Greatest receiver ever and 27 td season receiving wise best ever,84 is number 1 not da Antonio brown version though randy moss

Moss carried the Vikings, and they should have won multiple championships. - CDShark

Only shadowing Jerry Rice in the receiver category, Rice himself said that Moss had the most talent out of any receiver to ever play the game.

Randy Moss is not even top 50. My top 10: 10. Darrell Greene. 9. Deacon Jones. 8. Ronnie Lott. 7. Reggie White. 6. Barry Sanders. 5. Tony Gonzalez. 4. Walter Payton. 3 Joe Montana. 2 Ray Lewis. 1 Jerry Rice. Jerry Rice is a no brainier. I barely chose Ray Lewis in front of Montana.

12 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.

Johnny U. Was amazing. If you look at his stats you'd never guess he was though. Pass-interference wasn't invented(my proof, it's called the Mel Blount rule)and very few penalties against the defense was. There were no doubters that Unitas would make the Hall of Fame.

John Mackey got his records with Johnny U as his qb

13 Deion Sanders Deion Sanders Deion Luywnn Sanders, Sr. is a former American football and former American baseball player, who works as an analyst for CBS Sports and the NFL Network.

He's a very good corner back no doubt but I think Richard Sherman should be above him not only did he play the NFC championship with excruciating pain in his hand he actually played well. He made an unbelievable clutch interception against san fran he has that really cool swag and athleticism that just can't be taught. Richard Sherman is better look at the numbers even he said that

Best cornerback ever (even though I live in Arlington Texas

Murder how do you know that he even did it you're just assuming something. - ezyfire823

Best heart of all time. Greatest leader of all-time. Best defensive player of all time. Ray Lewis. 2 time champion.

Not only do I think that he is the best LB of all time but I think he is the 2nd best player EVER behind Jerry Rice. He was awesome. Huge impact on the game.

Greatest defensive end of all time, an absolute monster all around.

He is often called the nickname ''Megatron'' for his rare combination of size, speed, and leaping ability on the field.

He is unguardable with his hands, strength, and speed, he was breaking records left and right with Matthew Stafford! So, it all balances out like this: GOAT.

Speed, size, strength, catching, and jumping. Not only is this receiver good, he is amazing! Not only is he the best player at wide receiver today, but he is also one of the best players today and ever.

Only voting because of his name

The best defender of his time, memorable personality, if you saw him live or on T.V. in the day, no question.

Roses are red, violets are blue, you better keep Butkus away from you. If you've seen him, you've seen players laying on the ground dead. He was the hardest hitter in the history of the game, period. More players would be in the Medical facility after facing the Bears with Butkus on their team than anywhere else.

He is awesome, he should be higher in the ranks and he schooled everybody on defense.

18 Larry Fitzgerald Larry Fitzgerald Larry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. Fitzgerald was drafted 3rd overall to the Arizona Cardinals in 2004, he is considered to be one of the best players of his position to never win a Super Bowl.

Fitzy had Kurt Warner for like 2 years he's had horrible QBs sense he's still top3 in every career receiving record best we ever maybe not the player but top 5

You are awesome

Most consistent hands ever, tall, extremely athletic, was blazing fast in his prime, and played the game like no other. When Larry Fitzgerald changed positions into more of an inside receiver instead of a wing player because of his age and the decrease of speed, he still remained as on of the best receivers in the league. The only thing that he lacks (as well as the Cardinals) is a super bowl ring.

Best Wide Receiver for the Arizona Cardinals, and was very good in their Super Bowl match against PittsBurgh. He is definitely one of the greatest players of today, deserves a spot in the top 10.

21 Steve Young Steve Young Jon Steven Young is a former professional American football quarterback who played 15 seasons in the National Football League and is best known for his 13 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.

Steve Young started his NFL career too late otherwise he might have been the greatest player of all time. his 7 year span from 1992-1998 was incredible. Such a fun player to watch. He was basically as accurate as any quarterback there had even been and then you add in that he was one of the best running quarterbacks as well. Amazing!

One of the best QBs of all time.

Great QB

Heez a preetty cool mormon maybe I should be a mormon so I can be great and have a better chance of making the nfl

22 Emmitt Smith Emmitt Smith Emmitt James Smith III is a former college and professional American football running back who became the National Football League's all-time leading rusher during his fifteen seasons in the league during the 1990s and 2000s.

He is the best

Really, number 27. All time leading in rushing touchdowns and yards, got more carries than any other running back, and has 3 rings. He is better than Jerry Rice, no kidding. I know I am a cowboys fan, but he still is number 1.

Emmitt is the all-time leading rusher. Yet, he is underrated. He carried the ball more than any other runningback in history. That is a big accomplishment. Most players careers would end early if they carried the ball as mush as he did! The most durable player ever!

He is the best I have to say. He played for my team! I am only 13 years old but, I like him. Him and dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are the best!

No he is trash and wheres sean taylor

Best and fastest qb

My favorite QB of all time (From a Packers fan). People hate on him for his history with dog-fighting but everyone makes mistakes, and he lived up to his and spent his time. There are people in the NFL who repeatedly abuse drugs or their girlfriends, and Vick still gets more hate. Anyways, playing-wise, he is the best rushing QB of all time and had one of the greatest arms. Also the greatest player in the history of Madden because of his stats in Madden 2004.

Best scrambler ever plus I love how you can beat your kid senseless, beat your wife unconcious, and potentially murder someone and get off with a suspension but he fights dogs and bam federal prison and his polarizing career was ruined

14 interceptions in a 12 game season as a rookie. Hit as hard as Dick Butkus. Went for head tackles to stop folks and put fear into receivers. Best of all because of him face mask tackling was not allowed. After he couldn't use the facemask he developed the night train necktie tackle which they ended up calling clothes lining and made that a no no. He ended using his forearm to rattl cages. He was feared.

Spent less than half the time in the NFL that Jerry Rice did, and still did things more impressive... for his time (when their were no targeting or pass interference rules) he is the greatest of all time. 1 in every 5 catch was a touchdown, and he played for 11 years! He held every receiving record for a long time, and still holds some to this day.

He was an unbelievable receiver. Said and done.

Don Hutson is to football like Wilt Chamberlain is to basketball

39 Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. Odell Beckham Jr. is a NFL wide receiver, playing for the New York Giants. He is most-known for making an incredible one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys. Beckham was drafted 12th overall to the New York Giants.

First of all, Odell is not overrated. He is not only relevant because of one catch. Oh god no. Before you start talking about that look at his actual stats. He was probably the best rookie the NFL had seen maybe ever. He has had three record breaking seasons so far. Getting lots of yards and touchdowns. And to top it off he can catch unlike anyone has ever caught before. But that's just the cherry on the sundae. The best player ever.

Odell is very overrated. After getting one lucky catch against the Cowboys, he's been treated like the superstar of the NFL. The only reason he could catch like that later on, was because he began to practice like that. It's pretty ridiculous what people like him would do for the audience. Why not play it safe, catch with 2 hands, and gain more yardage. Not some show-off who only knows how to catch with one hand and fall.

GOAT! And his stats prove it! People say "oh he only got lucky with one catch" but no, that's note even why he's good. He has broken like every rookie record and many more. In his first three years he has broken more records than anyone in the LEAGUE has they're entire career!

I wouldn't say that he's overrated but he's undeserving of the position he is in. His one handed catch did give him a lot of attention, but he still was an on-the-rise receiver in the NFL at the time. It's not too hard to gain yards on short 5-10 yard slant routes. Basically, OBJ is running routes that would be featured in the old 49ers West Coast offense. His speed allows him to beat defenders on short routes which allows for such a high YAC average. But, if you put him up against a good corner that can lock him down, he gets hot headed and frustrated. He can be made a non-factor if he faces the right corner. I would be Julio Jones above OBJ. - DWHutchII
