bdempsey...sorry about the use of the word ignorant...I could've made my point without attacking you personally, and as the old-timers around here can attest, that isn't how I would normally approach it.
That being said, yeah, lets agree to disagree. My bias will show through on a top 5 list, as not only do I still keep Montana on top, I have a hard time dropping Young below #4...yeah I know most put him somewhere 7-10.
Would be fun to have threads where we debated top 10 all time at various positions...since we started QB here, I'll try to sort mine (since I didn't earlier)...
3) J Unitas
4) Steve Young
5) P Manning
6) Dan Marino
7) Bart Starr
8) Brett Favre (INT anyone?)
9) Fran Tarkenton
10) Kurt Warner
I submit should be considered also especially before Kurt Warner and Fran.
I like this list.

I think I'll end up cheering on Flacco since it looks like Ray-Ray's gonna get a second ring. On the Niner's I just disagree that Kaepernick is a superbowl level QB. . . sure he got there with the Niners but he isn't the reason they are there. I'd feel more comfortable with them winning and Alex Smith being the headlined qb of their team even if it's in a riding the bench story-line.
49ers win and it's like when Baltimore won it last time or the Bucs... no QB. Just my two cents.
