Top 9 QBs since the 80s? Hmmm, Kurt Warner instantly comes to mind as a notable omission, but I don't see anyone on that list I could seriously put him over due to his relative lack of longevity, and I assume this is career based. Jim Kelly, Warren Moon, Dan Fouts (best years right at turn of decade), and Aikman are the other post-80s HOF QBs. I guess you could throw in Big Ben and Eli (lol) as probable future HOFers, Rivers has a chance too. That wraps up the feasible candidates to this discussion at the moment....

 

I'll say no, I don't see an argument for any of those guys I listed over your top 9 (however, I am 100% certain somebody will ;)).

Elway is the worst of that group 

Easily. He's one of the most overrated Quarterbacks in NFL History.

At least in terms of decorated careers, looks like a good group. There are other talented passers I think were in the same camp talent wise, but don't have the accolades.

1. Brady

2. Montana

3. Manning

4. Marino

5. Elway

6. Favre

Yea but if we were having a rookie draft with no vision of their futures he would go first hands down.

If that's how we're looking at it, I"d say it's probably Andrew Luck tbh.

Yea I know it's not and I went off topic. Just thinking how much measurables and such make the difference in our perception of future nfl players. Yet on this list it's almost the total opposite.

I don’t understand why Elway just gets thrown into all of these “best ever” lists? To me, he’s probably the most overrated NFL player of all-time. I’d take Warner over Elway if given the choice.

I feel like it’s just because everyone does that you almost feel obligated to. Like he was pretty good for a really long time and got a couple rings and played in a lot of Super Bowls.

Is it wrong for me to say he was the Eli Manning of his generation?
