Game 1: My gut reaction was to vote for Brady, but then I started comparing them, and this one is really close. Both were considered great clutch passers, both won multiple Super Bowls, and both ran pretty high-powered offenses. In the end, I still went with Brady, but it was a 53-47 vote.
Game 2: Another clunker in this stage of the tourney. I went with Snead because Blanda wasn't even a quarterback for much of his career.
Game 3: Tittle was very good, but Warner really stands out for me. The guy took two different teams to the Super Bowl. That's impressive.
Game 4: This is a close one, but Brees' final book has not yet been written. Lenny got it done for a decade and a half. I'm going homer on this one.
Game 5: Marino. He wants the ball and he's going to score!
Game 6: Now this is a tough one. I think both of these quarterbacks are among the greatest to play the game (at least until Manning broke his neck and started stinking). Both of them were premier passers, but I think Unitas dominated a little more than Manning. Plus, Unitas seemed to play better in big games, whereas Manning doesn't. It's close, but I give it to Unitas.
Game 7: I was never that impressed with Esiason, and Waterfield ran a heckuvan offense. I'm going Waterfield here.
Game 8: Another really tough one. My gut reaction is to take Starr, but if I was to be completely honest, I'd take Roethlisberger in a one-game playoff. The guy is really good when you need him most. In a shocker, I'm going with Roethlisberger.
