It's more of a personal preference than anything, as none of us is really has an expert opinion on this subject.
Tarkenton and Fouts weren't even a consideration for me, considering how abysmally bad they were in the postseason. In 11 playoff games, Tarkenton through 11 touchdowns compared to 17 interceptions. Fouts, in 7 games, had 12 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.
Postseason play is huge for me, simply because it's the only play that really matters. It tells how a player performs against elite competition when a season is on the line and not about padding statistics against weak and inferior teams for half of the season. I made a post on here once (can't find it now but I'm trying) where I made postseason statistics of great quarterbacks past and present. If you add all their stats from the postseason gamelogs, you'll usually get around 10-16 games, which is almost a season's worth of statistics. Then, compare them to each other.
Like I said before, too, I always forget about Otto Graham. You could easily make an argument for him, Baugh, and Favre.
Staubach is a personal favorite of mine. If he would have gotten to play an entire career instead of a shortened one (from the time he spent in the military), I personally believe he'd be a lock for top five on most peoples' lists.
I really am gonna try to find that old post, though.
