After all the hard work, here is the top ten – take your guess for number one before you scroll down and see the final results.
#10 Giants – 145 points
Comment: Conerly – old timer – threw almost as many TDs as Simms. Manning is overrated.
#9 Chargers – 151 points
Comment: Wonder what might have happened had Marty and Brees both stayed in San Diego.
#8 Chiefs – 154 points
Comment: Mahomes only received 38 of 50 points so do not accuse me of favoritism. Dawson had some really good numbers for his era. Smith and Green are both solid. Kenney is more of the afterthought but did decent on some really bad teams.
#7 Redskins – 156 points
Comment: No all time greats here but solid group of five. Baugh is the oldest in the contest.
#6 – Patriots – 156 points
Comment: Brady pushes this solid but unspectacular group this high up the rankings.
#5 Packers – 158 points
Comment: Favre, Rodgers, and Starr – then a huge drop off in talent to Dickey and Rote.
#4 Colts – 158 points
Comment: It is criminal what the Colts organization did to Andrew Luck.
#3 Steelers – 159 points
Comment: I found it hard to believe they were ahead of the Packers and Colts. Basically, the bottom three here beat the bottom two of the Packers and Colts enough to make the difference.
# 2 Niners – 168 points
Comment: Brodie, Tittle, and Garcia were solid enough to leapfrog the prior three teams.
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
#1 Cowboys – 186 points
Comment: They were the only team that all five quarterbacks had a score of thirty or above. The Packers were the only team that had three quarterbacks at forty or above. I do believe that Danny White is overrated but he had the statistics to be there. Staubach had an amazing won loss differential – Tom Brady had the highest. An 18 point win over second place is rather significant. One might argue that they played on some really good teams but you could use that argument for half the quarterbacks on the list.
Time to hit me up with comments – criticize the process, critique the results and such. Thank you for reading these fan posts.
