I am assuming Joe Theismann was one of them.

No, but Jay Schroeder would have been.

^^ Okay then. Well since I am a Packers fan, one of the greatest QBs would be Bart Starr. He won the first two Super Bowls ever. He is a 5x champion.

Crap. GOAT, Greatest Of All Time.

I thought y'all were talking incompetents. That's why I couldn't figure out Montana and Brady.

Nope. GOAT, in the opininion of the OP, is greatest QB of all time. Also you could also say Staubach, Johnny Unitas, Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, etc.

Everyone but Bradshaw could spell cat without spotting them the c and the a.

I loved that Tomlin brought this up after Bradshaw called Tomlin nothing but a cheerleader. Tomlin didn't miss a beat referencing it.

Hollywood Henderson was the first to quote that about Bradshaw,, but Bradshaw got the last laugh.

I think Brady has earned the moniker of GOAT... but in time, he too will have to give the crown up to another..

If you don't want to select GOAT, or you don't think it's a fair assessment, fine but there will be many who try to normalize the different eras to make that GOAT determination. Some great names have been mentioned here but two that definitely belong in the GOAT discussion have not: Otto Graham and Sammy Baugh. In all, five belong in the discussion: Baugh, Brady, Graham, Montana, and Unitas. And I'll stand behind Brady as #1 and Montana as #2. Then I'll go Unitas, Graham, then Baugh.

Someone mentioned Redskins? But they failed to mention Williams and Rypien. None of the four (incl. Theismann and Schroeder) are even in the second or third tiers, or even fourth tiers of greatness. And Schroeder isn't even close to the other three.

Bradshaw? For Super Bowls IX and X they won primarily with great defense. But in XIII and XIV they had great offense too. I put Bradshaw in the third tier of greatness.

Joe Namath? He put the AFL on the map, but greatest? Please. I put him below Bradshaw. Staubach, I put him together in the same tier as Bradshaw.

Elway? Second tier. Peyton? Second, maybe third tier. Eli? Maybe fourth or fifth tier. Favre is second tier. Jim Kelly is third tier. Bart Starr? No way, he 'managed' the game, much like Trent Dilfer did for his Super Bowl - and I'm not equating them. Starr is fourth tier. Dilfer isn't even among any semblance of greatness. Blanda? Fifth tier, maybe. Marino is second tier. Tarkenton is fourth tier.
