The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A QB

Posted on: May 23, 2008 11:41 am

Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Until the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate every ones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

19th Position- Quarter Back    Vote for the best Quarter Back of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choice feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted on for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who is our Quarter Back?

Please remember to rate this blog entry, and all comments as I appear to be losing value points for doing this blog, I happen to believe a lot of you enjoy it however, so I will continue even though I may be a rookie by the time it is over!

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A QB

I love these kind of debates and my hat is off to DKM....THANKS.

I can't vote Montana because there was no drop off in SF after he left....the offense may have been even more prolific under Steve Young.

I'm not old enough to have seen Johnny Unitas play.   Brett Favre was a blast to watch, but let's be honest, through most of his career he threw the ball up for grabs way to much to be the best QB ever.

Dan Marino probably had the best delivery of any of them but he was not a leader.  In the rare cases where he was sacked, he looked like a spoiled brat who didn't get his way.

No surprise here that my vote goes to JOHN ELWAY.   He single-handedly willed the Broncos to so many wins with mediocre teams that comparisons are pointless.  He combined the will to win of Favre with the ability of Marino or Young and the leadership of Montana and Unitas.

It's gotta be ELWAY.

Ind ... give it up
I think your the only one that doesn't buy into Championships as a sign of a great QB ... and apparently somebody remembered Hart in Coryell's offense.  are you still waiting?
Brett Farve is great ... and had some great years with the Packers, but also forced balls because of his "gunslinger" mentality
ONLY one Super Bowl ... just one ... with that mentality and I can say are you going to blame Brett Farve for having Reggie White and a defense that year if your going to be consistent in your logic?

You have to get some logic to greatness, is it the hardware that player brings to the "team" or individually .... I can also argue Fouts had a amazing TE in Winslow as well, I'm not taking any credit away from him but even he would have had given up the passing yards admittedly for a championship, isn't that why you play QB in the NFL for, the championships?

You keep bringing up Stan Humphries ... some guys have the luck on being on a championship team, wasn't Means and Seau the reason the Chargers went to the Super Bowl, same thing with Dilfer and the Ravens, it was Ray Lewis and Jamal Lewis.

Is it Joe Montana's fault to have Walsh as a coach and Bradshaw's fault that he had Chuck Knoll and a great defense? 
Nope ...

How do you define a good QB exactly .... or do you just enjoy watching a pretty pass in the air be it a completion or a interception from your gunslingers? 

Get over it .... the symbol of greatness is championships .... the bigger the game, the bigger the name ... no bigger a game in the Super Bowl, the name who's been there 4 times and came out a champ, the 49ers and Montana

There is only one greatest QB an that is Joe Montana. All I have to say is, "The Catch!!!" The greatest moment in NFL History done by Joe Montana and Dwight Clark any questions? The answer aka Joe Montana....

Joe Montana, but it was really close between him and Unitas. The reason i picked Montana is just look at what he did, 4-0 in the Superbowl, also had great feet perfect accuracy and touch that no one even came close to. So Montana hands down.

Keeping in mind:

-No ifs, would'ves, should'ves, or could'ves ( if my guy would've had so and so's running attack / wr's, etc.)

-Great wide receivers are just as much a product of great QB's as QB's are of WR's.

- How they played vs their own generation and rules ( the "atheltes today are better" resort)

-What they did when everything was on the line and how often ( the " well then Trent Dilfer should be considered" killer)

-Never failing when it counted ( No "L" in the win/loss column of Championship games)

-Stats aren't everything - championships are.


1.Joe Montana

2. Terry Bradshaw

Ok which is it, man? Of course Fouts credited Coryell. Now quick name the QB Coryell coached with the Cardinals.....?........Waiting......????You gotta have Hart. Jim Hart. One of the most underrated QB's. It is true no one remembers him.

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A QB

of the greats... im going either:

Steve Young - someone that can make something out of nothing... when the **** hits the fan in the pocket, I know he can get out of it.


Brett Farve - he'd die on the field for his teammates... His passion for the game is unmatched
