      Sad, too, because his drinking brought about his early demise. He played more than a few Sunday afternoon games still buzzed from the night before.

      Great post, Crete! I lived in northern Virginia from 6th through 12th grade, and played little league full-pads tackle football until high school. The 'Skins were my team, and Jurgenson and Kilmer were the qbs. I knew the name, number, and position of every starter, and can still tell you a lot of them. I hated the Cowboys, but liked a lot of the individual players, including Staubach. That mf'er broke our hearts many a time. A little story about the time I met Sonny Jurgenson:

      I was 11 or 12, in Cub Scouts or Webelos at the time, and we were selling magazine subscriptions to raise money for our summer camp. The fathers running our operation that day took us to some neighborhood, and dispersed us in different directions. I walked up to a house where a blonde-haired guy was sitting on his front step. As I walked up the driveway and got closer, I freaked - I was looking at Sonny Jurgenson, about 5 feet away! I couldn't even speak for what seemed like a full minute. We looked at each other, and I finally pointed at him, with my eyes bugging out of my head, and yelled, "Do you know who you are?!!!" He laughed, and said, "Yeah, son, I know who I am." I yelled, "Stay right there!", and took off running for the rest of the guys. I found them a couple of blocks away, and yelled, "Come on! I just met Sonny Jurgenson!" We galloped back to his house as a pack. When we got there, his wife was waiting for us, and said, "Boys, Mr. Jurgenson has a headache. He can't talk to you right now." We walked back to the van, and left. End of story.

            Number 1 is Brady.




            But number 2 isn’t on your list. It’s Johnny Unitas.



            Montana 3.



            Everybody else is tied for 4.


            Alex.

            I couldn't bring myself to include Johnny U. I was afraid he might break a leg evading the rush, high tops and all.

              Johnny U was a bad ass and did it when they could hit the QB every play.

                The problem with stats like these is they ignore the fact that you have to be trailing in order to have a comeback.

                    It does kinda take away from the overall ability of guys like Bart Starr, Terry Bradshaw, Bob Griese and such because their teams were often so dominant that they spent most of the 3rd and 4th quarters of games handing the ball off and burning up the clock with a 3 score lead.....

                        I've gotta go with Marino. Zero mobility, quickest release ever. Here's the play-by-play going on in a Jets fan's mind when they have a 5 point lead, Fins have the ball, and we're inside of two minutes...

                        "Our D is playing LIGHTS OUT! We'll sack this pansy in a play or two and it'll be all over."

                        "Come on! This guy's got NO KNEES! How the hell can he get the ball off before we hit him EVERY SINGLE TIME?"

                        "Are you SERIOUS? 34 seconds off the clock and they're already inside our 30?"

                        "Dammit. I hate that guy. Well, he'll probably retire after the season what with the no knees and all. We'll get them next year."

                          How could anyone vote for Marino? He was the opposite of clutch.

                          Brady is a product of this era - he’s the most protected QB ever. No way he survives or has his stats even 20 years ago. I guess if the question was “who would you choose with today’s rules to lead a comeback” you’d go with Brady but give me Montana for any era.

                            Compared to Brady and Marino? C’mon man. You don’t have to be Mike Vick. For a pocket passer, it’s about being able to feel the pressure and move away from it in the pocket, and being able to get the ball out quickly. I’m more interested in how long it takes a QB to get from receiving the snap to releasing the ball than I am in his 40 time.

                            Unitas played in an era when an ACL was a career-ending injury and QBs got hit hard and often.

                            Unitas was the king of the comeback. Ice water in his veins.

                            Alex.
