Legend's Are One Of a Kind: The Top 10 Greatest Quarterbacks In NFL History
I will go from 10 to 1 based on who was actually the best of the best and changed the game of football it's self.
We will start out with the quarterback and after that will go to the running back then the tight end and so on.
Here in my opinion are the top ten greatest to ever play the quarterback position.

No. 10: Dan Marino

Even though he never won a superbowl Dan Marino is still one of the greatest. In just his second year in the league, he set NFL records for most yards thrown in a season (5,084) and touchdowns in a season with 48 (Later broken by Peyton Manning at 49 and Tom Brady at 50).
He earned his right to be in the top 10 and is probably the greatest pocket-passer quarterback in NFL history.
No. 9: Kurt Warner

Thats right. Mr.Cinderella Story himself is on this list.
I mean come on! Every body know the story but here it is again. He was Undrafted from Northern Iowa in '94 and no team took a chance on him. He went out of football and worked a a Hyve Grocery Store in Ceder Rapids, Iowa for a few years and then a team finally took a chance on him. No not a NFL team, but the newly formed Iowa BrainStormers of the Arena Football League. After some time in the AFL and a MVP award he spent a year with the Amsterdam Admirals in NFL Europe. Finally in the year 1998 Kurt Warner got signed by an NFL team.After one year as a backup, the Rams brought in Trent Green to be their saviour but in the final preseason game Green got injured and Warner came in.
The Rest is History.
Number 7: Peyton Manning

Watch Colts game's.
No. 7: Fran Tarkenton
Had Fran been able to win a Super Bowl or two, he would be in everybody's top five. But as such, there is a debate as to whether or not he was just the Peyton Manning of his era, before Peyton won his ring, that is.
Fran was the first QB to throw for over 300 touchdowns in a career.
