Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has revealed his picks for the greatest NFL signal-callers of all-time.
Appearing on Serge Ibaka’s “How Hungry Are You?” show, the four-time league MVP was initially asked to name his top five QBs in NFL history. Ibaka asked Rodgers to include himself, so the 39-year-old opted to name his top four.
Rodgers went with Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady, San Francisco 49ers legends Joe Montana and Steve Young and his former Green Bay mentor and teammate of three years, Brett Favre.
When it comes to discussing the NFL quarterback GOATS (greatest of all time), Brady has to start with any conversation. He holds the most Super Bowl rings among any player (seven) and is the NFL’s all-time passing yards and passing touchdowns leader.

Before Brady cemented his case as the consensus GOAT, many viewed Montana as the greatest ever. “Joe Cool” won four Super Bowl rings in his Hall of Fame career, and he didn’t throw a single interception in the big game.
Favre won three MVP awards and led the Packers to consecutive Super Bowl championship appearances in the 1996 and 1997 seasons, winning it all in the former. He retired as the NFL’s all time leader in wins, passing yards and passing touchdowns.
Young simply made the most of his tenure as the 49ers’ main starting quarterback after replacing Montana in San Francisco. He earned Pro Bowl honors in each of his final seven seasons, won two league MVP awards (1992 and 1994) and three Super Bowl championships (one as the team’s starting QB).
Arguably Rodgers’ biggest omission was another Hall of Famer in former Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos star Peyton Manning, who retired as the all time passing yards and passing touchdowns leader. Manning won a record five MVP awards and two Super Bowl championships.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
