As much as it pains me, that's right. You know, I think Peyton got something in the back of his head while he was playing for the Vols and he never really got over it. If he played in the post season (and until he was broken his numbers there were as solid as Brady's) the way he played in the regular season he'd have been the argument.He is not good enough. Peyton Manning is an all time great, and he isn't good enough either.
He is not good enough.
Not good enough for me to consider with one game to play.
Staubach had one of the greatest coaches in history, and a disciple of Paul Brown.
Nick already burst that bubble, but I'd add to it that even broken down he was pretty darn good for the Chiefs and he beat Steve Young and that SB winning cast with the lesser Chiefs, head to head.Montana was a great system quarterback and in his final three Super Bowl wins he had as a receiver one player who is called the best player in NFL history by many people, Jerry Rice. But Montana did not have the skill set of Staubach nor the great leadership of Staubach.
Give Staubach a receiver like Jerry Rice and he wins the NFL championship every year he plays.
Stop squinting. Look at the roster for Joe's first ring. And then remember what I noted about a declining Joe taking a lesser Chiefs team and beating HOF and future SB winning Steve Young with Rice and company.I don't see that!
Graham 7-for-10-in-10Tom Brady is the fluke.
I'm more interested in their individual play in the post season and their play in the big games. Starr and Graham had fewer games to play to get to a single elimination championship game (mostly 12 game seasons). Given the limited field it presented a much easier path to a Championship than Montana had.QBs with 4 or more rings, and their postseasons-to-championship wins fractions:
a. Starr 0.833
b. Graham 0.700
c. Bradshaw 0.444
d. Montana 0.400 (0.500 w/ SF)*
e. Brady 0.357
