    Montana is a clear choice over Elway. Joe never lost a Superbowl

    I'm not denying the fact that Johnny U was a great QB. He racked up impressive numbers in a completely different era many, many years ago. He didn't face the level of competition or the sophisticated defenses that modern day QB's face in my opinion.

    We're talking about QB's passing skills not number of SB wins.

    You’re right especially with those ugly black high tops he wore but Brady and Manning are/were slow too.

    Great discussion guys. I guess the point is that there are so many different measuring sticks and such great differences in the game and even the people no overall comparison is fair or accurate.
    The discussion sure is interesting and fun. Thanks

    Would Babe Ruth have hit all those home runs against today's pitching rotations while living on a diet of beer and hot dogs? Or would he have trained year round like today's players and earen a nutritious diet?
