Today's Best Quarterbacks and Their Throwback Comparisons

Can any of today's quarterbacks compare to Hall of Famer John Elway?

It was the Little River Band that gave us the song “Reminiscing.”

Here’s to hoping everyone follows the stream of thought here.

Welcome to the first of a 12-part series where we look at the better performers at their respective positions and whom they may compare to from the past.

We’ll start with some (some) of the top quarterbacks around the league and who they may draw comparisons to in terms of past stars and Pro Football Hall of Famers.

The criteria are multifaceted and one legend doesn’t fit all. We are talking style as much as anything because, after all, the eye test is still the best pop quiz ever.

As suggested by my head coach, other factors such as speed, size and durability will be taken into account when it comes to playing the NFL version of Match Game. We’ll even sprinkle a little history and philosophy in here as well.

So enjoy and try to keep the “what’s” and “huh’s” to a minimum.
