...then there's this Brady cat
Joe Cool for me...Brady a close second.
I don’t hate Iowa, but I get why people here do. Kittle is just a bad ass
Kids gonna have to put in a lot more years and Super Bowl titles before being mentioned with Brady, Elway, Favre and Montana.
Yes your right, Moss was better ! But my top 5 would be Lawrence Taylor Derrick Thomas Walter Payton, Earl Campbell Bob Brown
Butkus would be in jail if he played today. He literally would try to tear a guy's head off when he tackled them. I still remember the time he caught a pass for either a TD or a 2 pt conversion. Can't remember which. It was priceless. He and Walter Payton made me a Bears fan for a long time. Payton was amazing and would rather run over somebody on the sideline than run out of bounds. He made all pro defenders just look silly at times with his moves.
Taylor was good but man he had a tremendous supporting cast on that defense that let him get mostly one on one blocking.
No Reggie White??
LT, Reggie White, Jim Brown, Randy Moss
There isn’t one. Position matters. Decade played matters. How long did they played matters. Passing or a running team matters? How manny games played each season matters. How many NFL teams in the league matters. Take running backs, Jim Brown, Peyton, Sanders, Smith, Sayers, you could say each. I think it comes down to personal choice of the player you most admired on the field.
Favre... no! He isn't even in the same ball park. I take Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, Steve Young, and quite a few others including Rodgers over Favre any day of the week and twice on Sundays
Favre was one of the greatest QBs of all time. What are you smoking??
Bears fan maybe???
That's all I can think of.
He would be probably just outside the Top 10 on my list
My top 10 in no order
then maybe Favre, but there could be arguments made for Steve Young and Troy Aikman to be ahead of him. I also wouldn't be surprised to see players currently playing pass him up too
That puts him 11th overall and 3rd in own franchise
I LOVE me some Marino...but third?? Yikes.
Farve is on the Mount Rushmore of quarterbacks. He broke all the records until Manning passed him. He was one of those guys who I loved to watch play the game. Peyton Manning was another one.
Mount Rushmore of QB's are
Hard to argue against those four.
Then Favre is the Crazy Horse Memorial down the road...
That would probably belong to Drew Brees
Superbowls = 1 (Tie)
Games Played = 275 (Favre)
Record as a starter = 163-111 (Favre)
Completion % = 67.6 (Brees)
Total Yards = 77,416 (Brees)
Total TD's = 547 (Brees)
INT's = 237 (Brees)
Career Passer Rating = 98.4 (Brees)
Superbowls = 1 (Tie)
Games played = 302 (Favre)
Record as a starter = 186- 112 (Favre)
Completion % = 62% (Brees)
Total Yards = 71,838 (Brees)
Total TD's = 508 (Brees)
INT's = 336 (Brees)
Career Passer Rating = 86.0 (Brees)
Favre is a better QB than Brees how exactly? He is worse in every statistical catagory accept superbowl rings which is a tie, and career wins.
Lay off the cheese my friend
I think the streak of consecutive starts may factor in. Plus Brett led his teams to 2 Super Bowls. That is the knock on A-Rod and Brees. Only been to one. If Brees and Rodgers wins one more they are vaulted into the greatest conversation.
I never said Favre was a better QB than Brees, just that he is more like Crazy Horse. I'm a Vikings fan, I hate cheese, except on nachos.
I have to go with either Otto Graham or Walter Payton
All these picks are really good but, no has mentioned George Blanda?
If someone wants to make a case for a QB as the NFL's greatest player of all-time fine, but don't put any running back ahead of Jim Brown. He led the league in rushing 8 times in a 9 year NFL career. His 104 yards per game rushing average is the highest in NFL history and his 5.2 yards per carry is the 2nd highest in NFL history.
There are a series of videos on YouTube highlighting the greatest 100 players in NFL history on the 100th anniversary of the league. In the running back video, Chris Collingsworth makes the comment, "If this show had been called the NFL 1 instead of 100, we might have the same guest". Seated across from Chris was Jim Brown.
Jim Brown or Chuck Bednarik.
Exactly, Moss was the greatest wideout of all time. Sorry to all those Rice guys, but he would be #2.
Reggie White was definitely a beast. People seem to forget about him.
The only issue with moss was not always going 100%, but he was clearly the best receiver ever when he wanted to be.
Who would be the mt Rushmore of quarterbacks who didn’t win a super bowl? Jim Kelly, Dan Marino, Frank Tarkington,Boomer Esiason?
And somehow Trent Dilfer is exempt from consideration.
really hard to say, due to the years and different positions. rice didn't play running back, sanders didn't play linebacker and bukus didn't play wide receiver.
