Having played the position, albeit at a rudimentary level, I have always been fascinated by the play of NFL quarterbacks. I think it's undeniably the hardest position at which to excel in all of sports. There are any number of lists of QBs. What's yours? I'd like to see lists that are formed without regard to stats or championships, necessarily. The former is heavily dependent on the era in which the QB played. The latter has so many variables involved that I don't think it's a true measure of proficiency at the position. Here are my top five: 5. Dan Marino - arguably the best pure passer in the bunch. Quickest release ever. 4. Johnny Unitas - Feel sorry for the youngsters who never saw this guy. IMO he was the one who opened the world's eyes to what the forward pass could do for a team. If he played today, he'd be a 5,000 yd. passer every year. 3. Tom Brady - Phenomenal accuracy. Classic form. A great field general and leader of men. 2. Peyton Manning - The best reader of defenses we've ever seen. The easiest job in the NFL is to be the O-Coordinator on his team. 1. Joe Montana - The most accurate passer of all time. "Joe Cool" was the guy you wanted with the ball if you needed that last drive to pull out a win. Best "big game" QB of all time.
