No. 5: Joe Flacco. I’m not saying that Flacco is Elite, or even great. However he’s a very good, and consistent player, who shows flashes of greatness. He works hard, he doesn’t complain, and he can throw every pass. The Ravens have been to the playoffs with Joe Flacco under center five times, and they obviously won the Super Bowl in 2013 against the 49ers. He was named the MVP of that game for completing 22 of 33 passes for 287 yards and 3 touchdowns. He certainly arises to the occasion. His numbers in the regular season are average compared to his numbers in the playoffs. In his career in the regular season he has thrown 162 touchdown passes to 102 interceptions. In the playoffs he seems to be a different player, throwing 25 touchdown passes to 10 interceptions, and 11 touchdown passes to no interceptions in that remarkable playoff run to the most important game of them all. Say what you will about Joe Flacco, but at 6 ft. 6 232 pounds, and a cannon for an arm, I’ll take him over the Eli Mannings, and Carson Palmers of the NFL.

No. 4 Steve Young. The reason here is very simple. Despite better numbers in several categories, he just isn’t Joe Montana. Young’s legendary career will always be overshadowed by Joe Montana’s also legendary career. Joe Montana is just more popular. How many commercials do you see Young in? Not many. Papa John’s Pizza anybody? Steve Young won a Superbowl. Montana won 3. Steve Young threw for 232 touchdown passes, and Montana threw 273. Young has Joe Montana’s number in career quarterback rating, 96.8 to 92.3(very small margin), and though they could both run, Young rushed for 4,239 yards and 43 touchdowns to Joe’s 1,667 yards and 20 touchdowns. I’ll say this. Winning Championships are more important than stats. I see why Joe Montana has the upper hand. I just don’t quite understand why Steve Young is somehow forgettable.

No. 3 Donovan McNabb. Donovan Mcnabb was a great player in his prime. He led the Philadelphia Eagles to 5 NFC Championship games in his career, and one Super Bowl appearance in which he fell just short of winning. Playing Quarterback In the city of brotherly love is not easy. The fans are rightfully angry, passionate, and unforgiving. He handled that pretty darn well. Since being booed on draft day, McNabb threw for 234 touchdown passes, and ran for 3,459 yards and 29 touchdowns. During his time as The Eagles Franchise QB, The Eagles won 5 straight division titles. Since he was traded to the Redskins in 2010 (Now Retired), It has been a merry-go-round in the NFC East.

No. 2 Drew Brees. This one is simple. He was over looked in San Diego due to his smallish frame. In his very first season he took the Saints to the NFC Championship game, and in 2011 to the Super Bowl where they beat the Colts 31-17 earning him the MVP honors. He is an Elite quarterback that has never been shown the same respect as Tom Brady (very questionable integrity), and Peyton Manning. I don’t need to post stats. I believe he’s just as good as the other QBs mentioned. One thing is for sure. He’s a future Hall of Famer.

No. 1 Ben Roethlisberger. I do not like the Steelers, however I respect Big Ben. Since taking the Steelers to the AFC Championship game his rookie season he has won 2 Super bowls, and has his team in the playoffs almost every year, And he’s barely in the discussion as to who are the top quarterbacks from week to week. He is a top 5 QB every year that he’s healthy. He’s a tough, gritty, strong armed quarterback, who can make every throw. He’s a leader, an escape artist who can run, and a player that often carries his team on his back. He doesn’t get as much respect as I believe he should. This is coming from a writer who doesn’t even like the guy. I just simply respect him.
