Terry Bradshaw's QB Ratings in his 4 Super Bowl Appearances:
1st. 108.0
2nd 122.5
3rd 119.2
4th 101.9

Compared to the "best" QB Ever Montana (Yes I realize Montana was not a #1 pick)
1st 100.0
2nd 127.2
3rd 115.2
4th 147.6

Terry Bradshaw is clearly the best #1 Pick of all time, because he actually Lived Up to the True Expectations of a #1 Pick by playing Huge in Huge games.

The Following # 1 Picks are all in the Hall of Fame:
Troy Aikman
Bruce Smith
John Elway
Earl Campbell
Lee Roy Selmon
Terry Bradshaw
O.J. Simpson
Ron Yary
Joe Namath
Buck Buchanan
Paul Hornung
Chuck Bednarik
Charlie Trippi
Bill Dudley

The Following # 1 Picks will likely Make the Hall of Fame when the stop playing or when they are on the ballot:
Drew Bledsoe
Orlando Pace
Peyton Manning

Trent Dilfer vs. Dan Marino.


And also consider the surrounding cast that Bradshaw had. He didnt play well alone. He played well with one of the best O-lines ever, THE best defense ever (giving him more opportunities to throw), and some of the better runningbacks/wide receivers of all time.
