The debate over the best quarterbacks in history will never end, but there are some single season performances that simply stand above the rest. The post-merger NFL is rich with stories of passers who led their teams to victory while shattering records along the way, but few quarterbacks defined the standard for their position with a single season performance.

What follows is a list of the best post-merger NFL regular seasons for quarterbacks in history.

Drawing heavily on historical accounts, databases like Pro-Football-Reference, and individual narratives, this list ranks quarterbacks by their performance relative to year.

Some quarterbacks transcended their era, while others epitomized it. Many quarterbacks had a fantastic run for one or two years and then faded away, and even fewer had consistently strong careers.

Regardless of their lasting impact on the game, every single season performance after the NFL-AFL merger has been evaluated, graded and boiled down.

We'll kick off with quarterbacks who barely missed cracking the top ten.
