Top 25 NFL Quarterbacks of All Time: Why We Need To Take a Fresh Look at History

The position of quarterback has long been the most important position in the game of football. The focus on the position far exceeds any other and sorting through the all-time greats was no easy task. I'm only as good as my research and I've done some dense reading to put together the most faultless list to date. 

As time has gone by, writers have ranked certain quarterbacks far too high or low simply based off of public opinion or simple statistics. I've attempted to ignore both of those to a much larger extent than the lists made to this point. 

This list is not based off a formula either. The quarterback position is constantly evolving and I find it insane when writers attempt to create formulas that could compensate for that. NFL rules have made it easier on the passing game and in the past few decades, we have seen better passing statistics than ever before. 

The only constant attributes that can be judged, regardless of the era, are toughness, leadership and a winning mentality. 

Placing the current NFL quarterbacks was the toughest aspect of this list, but I think I've inserted them fairly. There is no doubt that current quarterbacks do belong on this list so I've placed them based off of their skills and performance to this point in their careers. 

Now that I've explained all of that, let's begin.
