Was a first round pick by Chicago and found reasonable sucess in '91 when he passed for 3,000 yards, but most of his sucess was in Indianapolis where he would become a Pro Bowler. In '95 he had a 100.7 passer rating and would make the Pro Bowl, along with being the Comeback Player of the Year, a top candidate for MVP and leading the Colts to the AFC Championship game. The '95 AFC Championship game ended in dramatic fashion as Harbaugh's Hail Mary was incomplete. He would also go on to have good sucess in San Diego and would retire in Carolina.
CAPTAIN COMEBACK! I still say that ball was caught. I don't care what the video shows.

80-Tobin Rote (Green Bay 1950-1956; Detroit 1957-1959; San Diego 1963-1964; Denver 1966)

Rote was the only man to quarterback teams to championships in both the NFL and the American Football League. He is also one of seven NFL quarterbacks to rush for at least 3,000 yards during a career. Rote's 35 rushing TD's are the fourth highest amount in NFL history by a QB. He would win a Championship with Detroit in '57, and San Diego in '63. He was also a one time Pro Bowler and one time AFL All-Star. In '63 he would win the AFL MVP. He would die in 2000 due to a heart attack.



More soon tonite after South Park

79-Neil O'Donnell (Pittsburgh 1990-1995; New York Jets 1996-1997; Cincinatti 1998; Tennessee 1998-2003)

He maybe best remembered for his two interceptions to nobody cornerback, Larry Brown, in the Super Bowl but O'Donnell had an impressive career. Probably a bit high here, but he did lose two Super Bowls (one as a backup) and was a one time Pro Bowler.

78-Greg Landry (Detroit 1968-1978; Baltimore 1979-1983; Chicago 1984)

No relation if thats what your wondering, but Landry was a pretty darn good QB. In '68, as a rookie, he made his only Pro Bowl after throwing for 2,237 yards and 16 td's. In '76 he was Comeback Player of the Year after throwing for 17 Td's. In '79 he had a career high, 2,932 yards. Had he played a year longer he wouldve been in a Super Bowl with Chicago.

Wow.. I can't believe Neil O'Donnell made this list..

With that Said Kordell should be coming up in about 5-10 picks.

O'donnell was the perfect Cowher QB... Do the minimum solidly and limit mistakes. Though he didn't do that in the superbowl.

I think Kordell was better than O'Donnell in his short stint.. if only he had more consistancy.

Ok, I'd like you TWO to explain IN detail why its absurd to have Favre in the top 3? Why is it soooo asinine to propose a man who will likely finish on top in Games won, MVPs, completions, TDs, consecutive games started, throwing Yards, and the NFL's sexiest man to be a top 3 QB?

Let's see if we can get another reason other than Interceptions too fellas..

This reminded me of a great quote from DJ Gallo:

Quote:
Brett Favre threw two more interceptions in Green Bay's shutout loss yesterday, (1st week in '06) giving him 257 for his career -- just 20 shy of George Blanda's all-time record. Will ESPN start running a Bonds-esque "Chasing Blanda" scroll at the bottom of the screen as Favre goes after -- and inevitably passes -- this historic mark? I have no idea, although they should. But I'd like to throw a bone to all of the Favre apologists out there. In order to prevent their hero from breaking Blanda's mark, I say Favre's picks no longer be recorded as interceptions. Instead, they shall be called "gunslings." It's simply disrespectful to say: "Brett Favre stinks. He threw five more interceptions last night." To me, this sounds much better: "Did you see Brett Favre throw five gunslings last night? Man, what a gunslinger. He threw them so hard directly into the defenders' hands that he made them bleed. No one throws gunslings like Brett Favre."

Because he was never the best quarterback of his era. He always had someone in front of him who was more dominant or talented. Is he one of the top twenty of all-time? Yes. Can I name you someone who was better pretty much every year of his career? Yeah.

Still one of the funniest sports quotes I've ever heard. I still use the term "gunslings" while watching the games on Sunday with my buddies. For instance, "Damn dude, Plummer just switched the ball to his non-throwing hand and nailed this guy with a gunsling for a touchdown."

3 straight MVP awards? Favre was easily the best QB of the 90's.

Top twenty? He is without a doubt top ten, no one can really argue if he is listed in the top 5, and he can make a case for top 3(even if he doesn't actually make the top 3.)

Name a QB who was better than Favre at really any time during the prime of Favres career.

Favre isnt in the top 3 in this list, but i could make a very strong arguement that he could.
But if you were to ask anyone from 95-97 who the top QB was, most would say Favre. He only won the MVP award 3 times in that span, and threw for 30 TD's each season too.

77-Steve Bartkowski (Atlanta 1975-1985; LA Rams 1986)

Drafted 1st overall by Atlanta he quickly proved his ability by winning the Rookie of the Year Award. Was a two-time Pro Bowler in '80 and '81 and is one of only seven QB's to have back-to-back 30 TD seasons. In '83 he led the NFL in passing and had a 97.4 QB rating. Could have been much higher on the list if he was more sucessful wins/playoffs wise.

76-Joe Ferguson (Buffalo 1973-1984; Detroit 1985-1986; Tampa Bay 1988-1989; Indianapolis 1990)

Is hard to imagine a guy could play threw three different decades and it fascinates me how much the game changed from his rookie season until his last. As a younger player, Fran Tarkenton and Terry Bradshaw were at the top of the league, but as times changed guys like Joe Montana and Dan Marino emerged as stars. In his career he would place in the top 10 in pass attempts five times, completions and passing yards four times, passing touchdowns six times, and yards per pass three times. He has a 1-2 record in the playoffs. His best year was in '75 when he tied Tarkenton for the most TD passes in a career. This was the first of four times that he would throw for 20 or more TD passes.
