Don't vote for your own, or you'll be disqualified.

You're better off making a new thread and list the QB's selected by everyone. Also make a second poll asking for the worst.

I'd just list the QBs and not the user who drafted them.

Agreed.

On a new thread. People aren't going to sift through 19 pages of bullshit to get to this poll.

I think it's important to compare QBs to players of their own era.  I didn't see Tarkenton play, I can only see stats and read about him.  Tarkenton was a 9 time Pro Bowler, and MVP in 1975.  Aikman played in a significantly more friendly passing era, yet Tarkenton put up very similar stats to Aikman.

Aikman never won an MVP, but he led the league in completion percentage once!
I did see Tarkenton play (I'm old, but not as old as MikeT).  You remember the scene in Rocky 2 where Mickey has Rocky chasing a chicken around the yard...?.  Tarkenton was the chicken.  Most of the defensive lineman of those times were big strong brutes and were ill-equipped to chase down the frenetic Tarkenton.  But that frenzied style didn't work as well against top-notch defenses (like in the Super Bowls), and he found himself overmatched.  Remember, he LOST those games against comparable defenses to other QBs that appeared in this list.
Clearly, the guy that held the passing TD record for 20 years was just a one-dimensional running QB.

There was a guy who held the ML homerun record for 35 years before Ruth broke it. Can you name him off the top of your head?

I'll give you a hint - he hit 64 career HR.

I don't know.  But I know whoever it is isn't 6th all-time in home runs now.
