1. Otto Graham/Johnny U2. Joe Montana3. Peyton Manning4. Kurt Warner5. Dan Marino/Dan FoutsPeople today forget how terrific Fouts was. He was the definition of a great QB hamstrung by a poor defense [although, like Marino and everyone else, he had a bad playoff game or two.]Injuries also slowed him down to the point where he was slower than Marino[!] and probably had to retire many years earlier than if he played today. Guy was big as a house it seemed, and had the 2nd fastest release I've ever seen, also after Marino. Every single playoff game they won, he had to lead a game-winning comeback usually after the defense had blown a huge lead. [i.e. Best Playoff Game Ever - the Kellen Winslow blocked FG game - OT win over the Fins]. They had the #1 Offense and the #26 Defense that year -- you just can win the Super Bowl that way. In 1980 they fell behind 28-7 to Oakland early in Q2, the SB winner, in the AFC-C and Fouts got them all the way back to 28-24 in the 3rd before losing by 6.After that epic game, they had to go to Cinci in like minus-30 windchill and play a good Bengals team at home when Ken Anderson was on fire and won MVP that year. Chargers had nothing left. Pretty good Bengals team also, lost by 5 to Montana after storming back from a 20-0 deficit.
