Special Report

30 Best Quarterbacks of All Time


24/7 Wall St. reviewed data from Pro Football Reference on touchdown passes, passing yards, approximate value, Pro Bowls, All-Pro designations, MVP awards, NFL championships, and Hall of Fame status of every quarterback in NFL history to determine the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

The approximate value statistic was not considered for quarterbacks whose careers started before that statistic was kept, and Hall of Fame status was not considered for active or recently retired quarterbacks. Quarterbacks were only given credit for titles won when they were the primary starting quarterback for that team. For instance, Steve Young was credited with one Super Bowl, even though he backed up Joe Montana during two Super Bowl campaigns.
