Comparing Today's Quarterbacks to Former US Presidents

Every year, the Super Bowl champions get to visit the President at the White House.  The Green Bay Packers' recent visit got me thinking, "What careers of NFL quarterbacks are similar to those of our Presidents."  As it turns out, there is quite a few.  They don't connect on every level, and some are based solely on one or two aspects of each guy, but nonetheless, the comparisons can certainly be made.

I originally was going to go team by team and compare their starting quarterback to one of our 44 Commander-in-Chiefs, but it was getting to the point where the only comparisons I could make for guys like Chad Henne to Gerald Ford just because they both went to the University of Michigan.

Here is the final group of 10 that I decided on. I hope you enjoy, and please feel free to comment and point out any notable comparisons that I may have missed.
