The 100 Greatest NFL Quarterbacks, 1970-Present

No doubt they're discussing the accuracy of my list
99. Erik Kramer "On the first play he ran as the Lions’ signal caller, Kramer changed the play given to him. For his instinctive deference, the 27 year old earned the nickname “Brass”, as in “brass balls.”

79. Lynn Dickey "For all of the throwing and chucking Favre executed during his long Packers tenure, he never could break Dickey’s record of 4458 yards through the air, set in 1983"

59. Bernie Kosar "Kosar would eventually get his ring in Dallas, holding the clipboard for Troy Aikman, but he couldn’t get the job done while leading his hometown squad. Perhaps it’s a fitting penance for a gifted quarterback that bucked the system in favor of getting what he wanted."

39. Ken O’Brien "Don’t feel too bad for Ken O’Brien; at least he’s number 39. That’s more than you could say for Todd Blackledge, taken 17 picks higher in 1983, and isn’t even ranked."

19. Phil Simms "With help from his dominant defense, the Giants outscored opponents that postseason 105-23, and made Simms the first quarterback to “go to Disneyworld.”
