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!
By that criteria, then, guess how many HoF (or Hof LIKELY) linemen Favre has played with during his career? Yep- none. I think it goes without saying that great QBs need at least decent offensive linemen. That Marino had few Hall of Famers in front of him means virtually nothing IMO...

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.
Your argument has merit. I thought of putting Steve Young on the list, and I also though of Jim Kelly and Joe Namath. Otto Graham was before my time, so I only know what I read about him, which makes me reluctant to put him on my list. He may well deserve to be on it.

I actually thought that Steve Young was much better than Montana.
As for Namath, he had one great season and one good one. He threw more Interceptions than TD's. Put him in the Midwest instead of the East Coast and he is not in the HOF.
