The NFL hosts several stars below the center, but there can only be one goat
In the common era of football, everyone has their own favorite quarterback. Some love the mobile options, while others believe that pocket fiters with large arms are the stars.
None of this matters in the debate when everyone cares, is the age old question.
Who is the greatest quarterback of all time?
Several names have been tossed around in the past, and some are bans to be in the top 5 of a fact sheet. But this top spot? Even if you think you know who number 1 is, someone will always have a different opinion.
Soon Patrick Mahomes could be on that list alongside Tom Brady after appearing in his second Super Bowl. Right now, these 10 names are the front runner for the GOAT title.
Top 10 NFL quarterbacks of all time
QB Houston Oilers
It is a mystery to talk about Warren Moon. Imagine his career if he hadn’t spent the first six seasons in Canada. Would it be higher? Lower? Could the city of Houston have a Lombardi Trophy despite the Oilers’ move to Tennessee?
Moon never succeeded in the playoffs, winning only three postseason games and failing to make a conference championship. However, he won an MVP, several Pro Bowl nods, and threw over 4,000 yards four times during the NFL’s still-first offenses.
Before Lamar Jackson was criticized for the quarterback game, Moon was the test subject of this debate. Boy Scouts said he would be better as a Receiver at the next level. Big mistake in retrospect.
Moon ranks 12th all-time in passing yards, 14th in passing touchdowns (291) and hands over one of the best clean guns the NFL has ever seen. If the Oilers were building around him, the Hall of Fame quarterback would likely be higher on that list and be walking around with a ring.
QB Green Bay Packers
If Aaron Rodgers had more than one Super Bowl win, would he be in the top 5 talks? Probably after his 2020 MVP season where he became the first quarterback in league history to have three seasons with 40+ touchdowns, yes.
Rodgers has had a 14-year career as a starter and is well on his way to becoming the greatest Packers quarterback of all time. That’s a tough job when Bart Starr won the first two Super Bowls and Brett Favre is actually Mr. Packer himself. Rodgers could go down in history with the best touchdown-to-interception ratio in league history, however, should he continue.
It’s a shame Rodgers won’t be in Super Bowls anymore. Since the 2010 season, the Packers have lost all four conference championship games, each in heartbreaking form. At 37, the mustache man on the handlebars may only have two chances of getting back to the big game.
However, with over 51,000 passing yards and 412 touchdowns, that number is only growing. A Super Bowl or not, he’s a first-choice Hall of Famer and one of the best to throw a pigskin.
