1) Brady, 2) Manning and 3) Marino in some order. But it has to be these three guys at the top, right?
lots of championships. all the qualities of leadership. fabulous on the field.
Graham was a much better athlete than Marino. Played on a pro basketball team that won the league championship, as well as 7 pro football championships.
My favorite Graham thing is that he led the college all stars vs the NFL champ Green Bay Packers. Packers were heavy favorites. Graham at QB. college kids beat the Pack. Graham had already won 3 or 4 championships in another pro football league. Graham and the entire Cleveland Browns team came into the NFL.
They won the championship.
Graham has the all time best yards gained per catch in the NFL.
Graham is regarded by critics as one of the most dominant players of his era, having taken the Browns to league championship games every year between 1946 and 1955, winning seven of them. With Graham at quarterback, the Browns posted a record of 114 wins, 20 losses, and four ties, including a 9–3 win–loss record in the playoffs. While most of Graham's statistical records have been surpassed in the modern era, he still holds the NFL record for career average yards gained per pass attempt, with 8.98. He also holds the record for the highest career winning percentage for an NFL starting quarterback, at 0.814. Long-time New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner, a friend of Graham's, once called him "as great of a quarterback as there ever was." He is also known for being one of only two people (the other being Gene Conley) to win championships in two of the four major North American sports—1946 NBL (became NBA) and AAFC championship, plus three more AAFC and three NFL championships.
