Tom Brady holds NFL records for the most TDs in a season (50), most touchdowns in a quarter (5), most consecutive pass attempts without an interception and many more.
Brady has won the Super Bowl MVP award two times and has also been the AP NFL MVP two times.
Brady is sure to be a first ballot Hall of Fame inductee, and if I had a choice of taking an active QB for my team today, I would choose him.
#1 Joe Montana
I loved watching Montana play, except when he defeated Dan Marino and my Miami Dolphins in the Super Bowl. If you want to talk about a winner, Montana fits that bill. Of all the great QBs to play the game, I would take Joe Montana in his prime any day.
The SF QB won four Super Bowls, which is incredible! Montana is the only player to win three Super Bowl MVP awards, was selected to the Pro Bowl eight times, and is a Hall of Fame inductee.
Montana was named the AP NFL MVP twice in his career and has won Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year. In his 16-year NFL career, Montana led his team to the playoffs 11 times.
What's most memorable in my mind is how he played in the Super Bowl and NFL playoffs. Once Montana made it to the big game, he was unbeatable. His four Super Bowl rings speak for themselves and the fact that he played great games in the Super Bowl speaks to his greatness.
So there are my top five greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time. No, Eli Manning didn't make the cut. Eli has won two Super Bowl titles but his play throughout his career has been up and down. That was true at times this season as well. If Eli continues on the path he showed this season and wins one more Super Bowl, he might be ranked in the top five. We will have to see.
