#1 Donovan McNabb
#2 Randall Cunningham
#3 Steve Young

Honorable Mention: Brett Favre. The shenanigans of the last few years bumped him out.

Grew up with these guys, nothing but love.

#1 Dan Marino - Don't whine about his lack of Superbowl Rings, in a team sport that is a completely disingenuous argument. Through the '80s there was him, an offensive line and 2 great recievers on that team. No defense, except for his first 2 years and no running game threat at all. That team won solely one his back and nothing else.

#2 Warren Moon - Often overlooked by many. He might be the greatest passer ever to play

#3 Doug Flutie - Always banged on because of his size, this guy just won everywhere he played. The Bills dealt him the cruelest blows and have paid the price ever since.

Emotionally #1 for me is Kosar. Great times in Cleveland and one of the smartest QB's ever (even if he doesn't sound it)
Technically #1 for me is Peyton Manning - The guy is what Kosar would have been if he had Peyton's physical gifts. Knows what the D is doing maybe better than they do.
And just for his grit and passion, Favre.

Favorites, not greatest--
1. Drew Bledsoe-nothing tops your original 'favorite player'
2. Tom Brady-Drew's replacement wasn't too shabby, either
3. Peyton Manning-Hate him, but have to love his knowledge/passion for the game. Still hate him, though.

1. Bernie Kosar

2. Fran Tarkenton (I was a kid, but jeez, he always seemed to get loose.)

3. Jim Kelly

Honorable mention: The almost completely forgotten Browns QB Bill Nelson. When I was a kid, he let me autograph his cast.

1. Montana
2. Marino
3. Favre - very close to getting knocked off this list by Rodgers, but I'll still give him thanks for plenty of memories both great and horrific.

1. Roger Staubach - Love his leadership and passion for the game. Class act and awesome football player
2. Johnny Unitas - Maybe the biggest hard-ass of all time. Love the black high tops. Ultimate team player who made everyone around him better.
3. Drew Brees - Unbelievable accuracy and field vision, classy guy, best NFL player ever from Purdue (maybe? Hello, Rod Woodson and Bob Griese)

I'm with Kosar19 as far as Bernie goes. Number two is the painful one for me, in John Elway. The one I always remember fondly though is Joe Montana. Guess I kinda gave my age away here eh?

Not living in the past, just that time gives a deeper appreciation.

1. Tom Brady (I am a Patriots fan)
2. Kurt Warner (Great player, underrated, great class)
3. Donovan Mcnabb (has heart, underappreciated, fun to watch)

Disclaimer: I have a lot of respect for P. Manning, but as a Pats fan I could not put him as one of my "favorite" QBs

In no order..... Sammy Baugh-the more I read about this guy, the more amazing he becomes.
Jim McMahon-Yeah, Bears fan. He was so fun and tough. I love watching him play. Thank God for classic DVDs. Damn you, Chaz Martin.
Peyton Manning-A guy who still calls his own plays. Not much needs to be said.

Has a chance.....Jay Cutler, if he brings a Bears Super Bowl, of course. Hey, my fav. number is 6, my mom went to Vandy.
And no, I would not have given Rexy the love if we had won the Super Bowl That Never Happened. We can talk about the Hester return. The most surreal moment of my life.

Staubach - first favorite.

Dave Krieg - best I have ever seen at taking a fall.

#1 Elway - The comeback kid.

#2 Aikman - Hated the 'Boys but he was always ready to play

#3 Montana - Arguably the greatest ever, cool under pressure.

1. Elway - reminds me of a guy that you would create on Madden - fast (especially in his younger years), rocket arm, accurate, intangibles, etc.
2. Montana - probably benefited the most from a coach on any list. Would've been interesting to see how he would've done in a different "system," or under multiple coaches.
3. Unitas - basically his own OC - Manning before Manning.

1. Montana -- Four Super Bowl appearances, four wins and ZERO interceptions. Clutch.
2. Brady
3. Elway

Favre should be on this list. But his act over the last few years has diminished him. Douchenozzle.

He is a god in west lafayette? Then come on down to New Orleans and see how he is treated! HA! He had a book signing 2 days ago and we sat stayed over night to see him and get the book signed..the guy brought about 10 dozen krispy kreme doughnuts with him to feed the crowd waiting for him. Guy is a beast!

Manning, Marino, Brees. The last pick is an obvious one...same thing with manning. (New orleans boy for life.)

Drews a great guy. I also attended his book signing that he had in Lafayette on Friday. Very cool to see him and acknowledge his college town now that he is a big time star.

Even in the Super Bowl, as a Colts fan I was upset to lose but if they were gonna lose I'm glad it was to Brees and the Saints rather than the Vikings.

It is funny you say that because we are the same way down here. We didn't want to lose..but if there was anyone to lose to, it would be manning. The kid was an animal here in high school and his family is just great to the city. We don't turn our backs on people who enjoy our company haha. Archie Manning was great to go through all the terrible years with the saints. He was a great QB though.

I've literally honked at drew brees about 10 times driving past his house on the way to a friends place. The guy just walks around sometimes on his way to the city park. He always waves and if you catch him by himself running and taking a break. He'll throw you a pass or 2. ha!

True dat,I think it would be similar if we lost to the giants in the super bowl,Blood is thicker then water,,,or something like that
