I'm a firm believer that it's a team accolade that tends to have a good QB on the team, instead of judging QB's with a huge curve to how many championships won. After all only one QB per year can win a championship and if they play on a crap team there is only so far they can take them. And if that's a true indictment of how good a QB truly is then Otto Graham would be the GOAT and it wouldn't be close. It would also mean that Brad Johnson and Trent Dilfer are better than Marino which is as laughable as thinking Big Ben and Eli are better than Peyton. I couldn't imagine how many rings Peyton would have if he was drafted by the Steelers or any other team with a great D. Also the 'any given Sunday' term doesn't go away on SB Sunday, so the better QB or team doesn't win every time.

So with all that said I think Marino is one of the best to ever play the position. Where he would rank for me is top 10, but not sure where in the top 10 because there were a lot of great QB's and I really can't come up with an appropriate approach as to where they truly should go. He's definitely one of the GOAT and it looks like that is something everyone can agree on.
Great Post!! I agree with everything you said!

Here is an article I ran across that goes back to what I was pointing out with Manning's first year in Denver being very impressive in the sense that 100% of what he was dealing with was new... unlike Brady that has a new receiver or two every couple years.


http://sports.yahoo.com/news/nfl--de...023543270.html


"On a metaphorical level, Manning might as well have been considered for Rookie of the Year honors, too. Not since his initial NFL campaign with the Indianapolis Colts, who selected him first in the 1998 draft and released him following his lost 2011 season, had the future first-ballot Hall of Famer felt so burdened and unsettled.

To be honest, I don't think any of them compare to this season.

The previous record was 36 for a season. Marino put up 48 on the board.
Do the math.... that's like shattering it, by 33% right?

This is a really cool video clip from 1984 for any oldies who might remember some of it, and all the youngsters who never got to see him, just saw some highlights. Take a look......... Well worth your time.

Lost in the shuffle, youngsters, watch some film here of the best pure passer in NFL history. Just watch.
