lmao @ tom brady down there with odonnell.

#68: Neil O'Donnell - Hidden draft gem, Super Bowl quarterback, ridiculous free agent bust, expert clipboard-holder... O'Donnell wore a lot of hats during his career. Most people will remember him as Larry Brown's bitch in Super Bowl XXX, but O'Donnell was actually a pretty starting good QB for the majority of his career, before becoming a solid stand-in for Steve McNair later in life.

Bradshaw a game manager? Never heard him referred to in that light before.

That list it total crap in my mind.....Ok even if you hate Tom Brady.....Which I do to....Don't get me wrong...But he is better then the 54th best QB of all time....Look at some of them names ahead of Brady...Just retarded....

Terry Bradshaw at 19? A game manager to....thats just silly.......I never saw Bradshaw play only through highlight films......But from what I read and what my family tells me he wasn't a game manger and should be higher then 19....lol

No disrespect to Ken Anderson.....I think he has case to be in Canton......But the 7th best QB of alltime?

I could go on but I feel dumber just reading that list...lol

Roman Gabriel in the top 20 and Tom Brady not in the top 50?

The methodology used in compiling that list is as flawed as some of the quant trading programs that hedge funds are riding to ruin on Wall Street these days.

Did a Browns fan make the list?

Bradshaw is top five at least.
Marino and Tarkenton are not top 10

I could of posted that awhile back. But I found it so out of sorts with QBs being rated wrong. Its just a worth less article.
