I think the NFL Nation rankings got it right.
Pfffffffttttttt. What does breaking Johnny U's records and playing in all of those Super Bowls against modern day defenses and NFL parity from a Salary Cap really mean ?

Right ?

Ha. Brady and Montana, pifft. Mere child's play.

Love Rivers game and am for sure pulling for him to win a championship..... Fouts was the more talented of the two as far as ability tho and it isn't even close....
