The quarterback is the most important position in football, as indispensable in his sport as a goaltender is in hockey or a pitcher is in baseball.
The quarterback is the on-field leader of the offense who holds the fate of his team in his hands. In the National Football League, the quarterback is in many cases the face of a franchise. If he succeeds with one team over an extended period of time, he becomes linked with the city he plays for.
As the countdown begins for Super Bowl LII, 24/7 Wall St. has compiled a list of the best quarterbacks to ever play for all 32 franchises. We used data from a variety of sources, including Football Database and Pro Football Reference to arrive at our list.
