In the NFL, the quarterback is the most important and recognizable guy on the field. His success is directly correlated to the success of his team.
During the 1980s, the frontmen and lead singers were the most important, recognizable guys (or girls) in music. Most often, the better they were, the better their bands were.
This list's purpose is to draw some humorous parallels between the 1980s' most iconic musicians and the NFL's quarterbacks.
