great list. obviously. but as i waited with baited breath to find out where our beloved Terry Bradshaw was...i was shocked and rather jacked to find out that he didn't make the list. why? you would think...anyone would think that he should've made the list, right?

It's simple. Bradshaw didn't make this list for the same reason Ben didn't make their current top-5 - they're hung up on statistics alone and Bradshaw only had a 51.9 completion percentage, a 70.9 passer rating and 212 TDs against 210 INTs for his career.

yeah, but the 4 Super Bowls in the 1970s should've counted for something. i don't TOTALLY disagree with the list, but to me, Bradshaw should've been atleast in the bottom 10.

Does Ben EVER get credit for his two rings? Nope. He loses out to Drew Brees and Jay Cutler who throw for a bazillion yards because their teams suck and need to score 35+ a game to have any hope of winning. These lists tend to be complete BS, IMO.

yeah...you're right. but then again, Ben and the Steelers never really had a problem with winning and flying under the radar at the same time. i can get behind that notion. we don't have to win big and we don't have to win pretty, we just have to win. we seem to do that pretty well and in the long run, stats really don't matter. it's the outcome that people remember and focus on. i guess lists aren't really important since they are solely based on opinion. but in my opinion their opinion sucks! haha!

statistically, no freaking way should they be above Marino! but if you base it on Super Bowl wins...then yeah, they got him beat. sadly. ha!

The list is Null and Void instantly for not including a 2 Time Super Bowl MVP and 4 Time Super bowl Winner.

Null and VOID says Me.

I love Terry Bradshaw

Meh, it should be no surprise that these lists favor QBs from pass-happy offenses. If you can pin your opponent down with great defense and grind down the clock with a good running game, it's going to put downward pressure on your numbers. I say go ahead and rank Marino or Favre however high you want. I'll be quite happy taking the extra Lombardi trophies instead, thank you.
