Greatest Quarterbacks of Modern Era

My era begins with Joe Montana. I enjoyed the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders as a kid, but I didn’t really know what I was watching. So sorry, Bradshaw and Plunkett this list starts in 1980.

Ranking the top Quarterbacks based on Winning Percentage, Championship Game Record and Super Bowl Record. It’s all about the W’s. How do you see them shaking out? Who am I missing?

I’m a Buffalo Bills fan, so I may have Kelly a bit higher than most, though in my mind he tops the list.
