Game 1: Fouts put up some good stats, and he played for the team that drafted him. Those add up to a win.
Game 2: Pretty easy win for Manning here. I like Bradshaw, but don't think he was the best QB of his era, let alone all time. Manning can make a case.
Game 3: Aikman gets an easy matchup. Gannon shouldn't be in this discussion.
Game 4: Dawson gets an easy matchup. Blanda doesn't belong in this discussion.
Game 5: A cruel twist of fate puts the Green Bay legends against each other. Bart Starr won't ever lose a game for you, and Brett Fah-vuh-ruh will. However, when you come down to it, the Lombardi Packers were a running team, and Favre could hand off as well as Starr. I have to pick Favre despite my admiration for the Lombardi teams.
Game 6: Another cruel twist of fate. At their peaks, I actually think that Young may have been the better and more unbeatable quarterback. However, I'm never ever betting against Joe Montana, so I'll pick Montana.
Game 7: Easy matchup for Warner here. Esiason shouldn't be in this discussion.
Game 8: Oh, wow. This one is brutal. The best passer of all time versus Mr. Clutch. Who do you pick in a one-game matchup? It's impossible to pick a loser here. With the "at their peak" qualifications, I'll go with Marino, but by the faintest of margins.
