    Interesting Stat for all of those that say that Dan Marino wasn't mobile as their biggest slight of him.

    Marino was sacked 270 times which is ranked 51st all time. Here are some notable Scramblers and how many times they were sacked...
    1) Farve 525
    2) Elway 516
    4) Cunningham 484
    7) Big Ben 465
    8) Warren Moon 458
    9) Tom Brady 433
    11) Donovan McNabb 410

    I don't know that sacks would be a true indicator on how mobile a QB was. Some of those guys were willing to run...and if you got caught behind the line of scrimmage, it went as a sack. Other guys were willing to hold the ball until the last possible second, waiting for a route to open. Sometimes it didn't, and they ate it. Got to take the good with the bad sometimes.

    I get that, but for all of the talk about Marino's lack of mobility I was shocked that he wasn't higher on the Sack list.

    Marino wasn't mobile but he had the quickest release a qb could have.

    Brady is the best I have ever seen and I have seen every one of them live and on tv bunches. I bet I have seen them all at least 20 times in the moment they played.

    In order:
    1) Brady (I really don't think it is close)
    2) Montana
    3) Rodgers
    4) P. Manning
    5) Favre (threw the ball harder than Elway, only QB I have ever seen live that I went WOW! on the velocity)
    6) Elway
    7) Marino
    8) Moon
    9) Brees
    10) Big Ben

    What has Ben done to earn more consideration than Eli? And if you put Tony Romo in consideration you have to include Ben and Eli.

    I forgot about Ben at the time...Eli has had a nice career but he's not top 10. He's led the league in INT's 3 times, completes just under 60% of his passes for a career and has a career passer rating 10 points lower than Ben.

    He's put up some huge yardages over his career and I'll give Eli major props for beating the Evil Empire the two times he's faced them in the Super Bowl.

    Ben has a great win loss record of 126-62 and has only one losing season at 7-8 his third season. He has a QBR of 93.5 which is just outside of the top 10.

    Eli has more TDs, yards, and has been better in the playoffs. Ben was awful in his first Superbowl run. Without Eli, the Giants dont make the playoffs in 2011, much less win it all.

    As good as Aaron Rodgers, and Brees are, they haven't won multiple super bowls. That goes a long way.
