  Win Place Show
Joe Montana (1979-94): His performances in the clutch made him arguably best big-game QB ever.
John Elway (1983-98): That famous Eli play in the Super Bowl? Elway did it six times a year, only with far more zip.
Brett Favre (1991-2007): He leaves with all the major passing records and unforgettable passion.
Peyton Manning (1998-present): Already has more TD passes than Montana and Elway and eventually will have all of Favre's records.
Tom Brady (2000-present): Just had the greatest passing season ever and was a Hail Manning away from another game-winning Super Bowl drive.
Terry Bradshaw (1970-1983): The best player on a Steel Curtain team some consider the NFL's last true dynasty.
Steve Young (1985-1999): The best running QB on the list, and is career passer rating may never be topped.
Dan Marino (1983-1999): Only Favre approached Marino's combination of arm strength and accuracy on the 20-yard routes.
Troy Aikman (1989-2000): Like Bradshaw, Aikman got roughed up early. Like Bradshaw, Aikman knew how to win Super Bowls.
Bart Starr (1956-1971):The only QB who was great pre-Super Bowl to make the list. Why? He was MVP of Super Bowl I and II.
