The Top Ten

1 Peyton Manning - 71,940 Peyton Manning - 71,940 Peyton Williams Manning is a former American football quarterback who played 18 seasons in the National Football League for the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos.

The fact he managed to pass up Favre in such a really cruddy season he had is what people forget about. While Peyton Manning isn't the best in the postseason he is one of the greatest regular season QB's ever. - htoutlaws2012

2 Brett Favre - 71,838 Brett Favre - 71,838 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.

To me he is the best Packer ever, I don't care I can the arguments though for Bart Starr, but Rodgers needs to play until his 40 for me to change my mind otherwise try playing as long as Favre has. - htoutlaws2012

3 Drew Brees - 70,445 Drew Brees - 70,445 Drew Christopher Brees is an American football quarterback for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. He is the only player to have back to back to back 5,000 yards in three seasons straight. Brees also has the all time best completion percentage with 66.95%.

I like Drew Brees, and seeing he could do it in just this upcoming season being this season way to go to the best #9 in the league. - htoutlaws2012

Brees will most likely surpass Favre and Manning for first all time in passing yards. The man deserves it too. - PackFan2005

Drew Brews will be the highest my the end of his career. - 2storm

4 Tom Brady - 66,159 Tom Brady - 66,159 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 more.

The GOAT Tom Brady he could get to the top if his still in top form, but seeing him lose the super bowl... anything can happen to the Patriots now there very invaluable on defense, and their offensive line is kinda garbage where Tom Brady is pretty much doing it all by himself. - htoutlaws2012

5 Dan Marino - 61,361 Dan Marino - 61,361 Daniel Constantine Marino Jr. is a former American football player who was a quarterback for the Miami Dolphins of the National Football League.

By far the greatest player of all time to never win a super bowl which sounds terrible the one thing he never had in his NFL career because that team was just not good enough to beat the opposing opponent. - htoutlaws2012

6 Eli Manning - 51,682 Eli Manning - 51,682 Elisha Nelson "Eli" Manning is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League. He is the younger brother of former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

Remember when Eli Manning was a good QB back in like 2007-2011 times yeah that's when he was a caliber winning quarterback in the playoffs. - htoutlaws2012

7 John Elway - 51,475 John Elway - 51,475 John Albert Elway Jr. is a former American football quarterback and current executive vice president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League.

Hard to believe he is only 7th, and behind Eli Manning is indeed a shock, there's a good chance that the two below him could also push him from potentially 9th all time. Give the guy his dues he brought them 3 super bowls to Denver. (including as GM in Super Bowl 50 technically) - htoutlaws2012

I'm surprised Elway isn't higher. - 2storm

The list is legitimate statistics based list, and this is the order according to the source provided. - htoutlaws2012

8 Ben Roethlisberger - 51,065 Ben Roethlisberger - 51,065 Benjamin Todd Roethlisberger, Sr., nicknamed Big Ben, is an American football quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers of the National Football League.

In what could be his final season as a Steeler he could get passed Elway, but to pass up Eli is a bit of a longshot at this point. - htoutlaws2012

9 Phillip Rivers - 50,348 Phillip Rivers - 50,348 Philip Michael Rivers is an American football quarterback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League.

Probably the most underrated QB playing now, and the fact his in the top 10 I think is very fascinating. Rivers is the type of guy who never quit on his team, but it's the rest that fall unfortunately He deserves a ring very soon, but how many chances will he have late in his career? - htoutlaws2012

10 Warren Moon - 49,325 Warren Moon - 49,325

Warren Moon to me paved the way for others to come like Randall Cunningham, Michael Vick, and Cam Newton those type of QB's who would be the now considered scrambler like players that they are now if it wasn't for the original #1 in Moon. - htoutlaws2012
