I'd say Dan Marino, but off that list Joe Montana.

I would be okay with him saying that Manning is the best ever. It's the way he says that it's not even an argument that makes him intolerable. 2/3 of Montana, WOW.

Elway: since people talk about a QB being the one position where he can do things by himself for the team without having help from his supporting cast(hitting the receiver in the hands because NFL receiver will catch those, escaping pressure the line gives up, running for yards when the receivers dont get open, etc.) John Elway was the one that could do that the best. He singlehandedly took them to three superbowls they didnt have buisness being in. He has the most 4th quarter come backs ever and of course "The Drive". Also come of those comebacks were flat out amazing like the KC one. He just took over and won the game down from a large margin.

You put Peyton on the first three superbowl teams Elway had and he sux. He would rly only have one decent WR, not much protection. Not very good defense. And he would suck. Montana had an incredible suporting cast during his career.

Now dont say Elway cant win without TD and all that crap. Payton could not have won his without a Hall of Fame Receier, a Pro Bowl 2nd receiver, a very good 1st round RB, a defense that came alive to rly good form in the playoffs, one of the best if not the best pass protection line in the league.........You put Elway on the Colts the past 3 years I can gaurantee you he has 2 superbowl rings during that span. He would not have choked against the like of the Patriots and Steelers. Now dont get me wrong Manning would be the second QB I would take after Elway on that list. BUT I would take Marino second after Elway and then Manning third.

Unitas was beast but I would still take Elway over him because he had a much better career. Unitas rly should not be in this conversation IMO. He should be replaced with Marino on the poll

It's hard to pick seeing how i've only seen one of those guys play. I've heard a lot about Elway so I picked him.

BTW, you would recieve more accurate results if you didn't mention what the purpose of this experiment was. Making it a private poll would also yield different results.

I gotta go with Joe Montana. Let Peyton Manning get another ring or two or maybe some more MVPs and we can talk about it.

No I know about how great Johnny U was and all his accomplichments. But he is not a top 3-4 QB of all time. He is top 10 definatly but the best or even top 4 I dont think so. The only Qbs that can be mentioned as best ever and actually have a good argument are Elway, Montana, Marino(yet not having a ring always gets him thrown out), and Manning

Edit: here is a poll where people rank the top QBs ever and Unitas is at #7
http://sports.espn.go.com/chat/sport...tranker?id=662 (just do the rankings and submit it to see the final results of the whole poll)

These arguments never have a right answer, just wrong ones. Like saying someone's the best by miles, or saying someone ridiculous.

I'd take Elway, perfect blend of size, arm strength/ accuracy, and athleticism.

The problem with this comparison is that Manning's career isn't over. He may not be the best now, but could definitely have that title when he's done in the NFL.

Which is why I wont vote.

Unitas, he changed the way quarterback was played and was arguably the toughest quarterback of all-time. If you look at his numbers then and compare them to now they aren't that impressive but he retired holding almost every record for a quarterback. He finished in the top ten for completions ten times, yards ten times, and touchdowns five times. The first quarterback ever to throw for 40,000 despite playing in twelve and fourteen game seasons. The record of 47 straight games with a touchdown pass will never be broken. He's the greatest of all-time in my eyes.
