Defining who the best quarterback of all time is isn't easy since every fan has a different criteria that defines who is the best NFL quarterback. If you like championships, then quarterbacks like Joe Montana, Johnny Unitas, Tom Brady, Terry Bradshaw, and Bart Starr are your guys. If you like gaudy numbers then you're more likely to be a fan of Peyton Manning, Dan Marino, and Brett Favre.

The position entails being a coach on the field who can call and adjust plays on a whim and being able to dissect the defensive coverage by taking a peek at what they're showing, all while having the ability to avoid the oncoming pass rush and make accurate throws. Sounds easy right? The gentleman who are considered the best qbs of all time have the rare ability to do all of these things in a matter of seconds.
