I love Brett Favre. He is in the top 10 and if he sneaks in the Super Bowl he can be in the top5. He has good touch on the ball, still has good mobility for a guy of 38 years old. Yes, he makes some dumb decisions. The last few years have not been kind to him stat-wise. But he has total command in the huddle. And he still has a great arm. I sat in Invesco and got to see it first hand last Monday. The most impressive thing about him obviously is his consecutive games streak. 180 some games and counting. Intimidation? He is one tough dude.

I'm also glad that someone else mentioned Dan Marino. It's unfortunate that he never won a Super Bowl, but he was an amazing QB. I used to watch the Dolphins play just to see him!

I also liked John Elway, and it was very satisfying to watch him lead the Broncos to two Super Bowls before he retired.

And yes, Brett Favre is amazing. I've gotten out of the football-watching habit in recent years, but he's had a terrific career.

I do think he is one of the most likeable, but I wouldn't say he's the best ever, too many INT's in my opinion.

Regarding Favre...sure is the way to go out, though! What a shame it would have been if he left the game after last year. If he leaves after this year...he'll go out on a fantastic note and be remembered in football forever in only a positive way!

It will be real interesting when the playoffs kick in. Green Bay has a good shot at getting to the Super Bowl. John Elway was the third quarterback to be named MVP after pro footballs' championship (Norm Van Brocklin and Otto Graham were the other two- this was when they were just called the NFL championship game), and then retire. Brett might play one more season. Why not? What is helping Brett is his offensive line. I think it is the best he has ever had.

Montana and Brady. That's all I have to say.

I will say that Favre is one of the best that I have ever seen, but like many great QB's he had the benefit of an excellent O-Line.
Montana was very good, but take away that defense, Roger Craig, Jerry Rice and Bill Walsh and he is above average, at best.
Then there is Dan Marino...
He never had a defense.
He had two good WR's (Duper and Clayton) early in his career.
He never had a running game.
He had a fair, at best, O-Line.
During his entire career Dan only played with one HOFer...Dwight Stephenson, and that was for only three years.
Maybe I am a bit biased (see my sn...LOL), but watching Dan was an event!

My top 10 ( off the top of my head ) in no particular order:

Tom Brady
Joe Montana
John Elway
Terry Bradshaw
Brett Favre
Peyton Manning
Dan Marino
Troy Aikman
Dan Fouts
Johnny Unitas

If I had list of names in front of me, my list would probably be different.

Nice list. I'd leave off Aikman and Bradshaw (both were IMO good QBs on great teams whose greatest strengths lied elsewhere), and replace them with Steve Young and Otto Graham.
