Johnny Unitas, Steve Young, Peyton Manning, Terry Bradshaw, Otto Graham, Sammy Baugh, George Blanda, Joe Montana and Tom Brady, all have been argued to be either one of the best quarterbacks of all time or the best of all time. Currently being debated is whether or not Joe Montana is the Greatest Quarterback Of All Time or is Tom Brady the Greatest Quarterback Of All Time. Now looking at the stats the best two candidates who can be called the greatest of all time or g.o.a.t. are Joe Montana and Tom Brady. These two terrific quarterbacks have amazing stats and accolades but the one who truly should take home the title of greatest of all time is Tom Brady.
Joe was inducted to the Football Hall of Fame at the age of 44. Joe “Cool” Montana, The Comeback Kid How did a boy from small town Pennsylvania become the greatest clutch play that the NFL has ever seen? There are three significant reasons why Joe Montana, former quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers football team, is the greatest regular season as well as greatest Super Bowl quarterback in National Football League history. First, Montana had a baffling sense for reading defenses, finding his receivers or running the ball out of trouble when linemen rushed him. Second, he possessed an astonishing intuition that resulted in long gains or touchdowns, when other quarterbacks would have been sacked.
Works Cited O. J. Simpson Trial: America’s Favorite Court Case O. J., born Orenthal James Simpson on July 9, 1947, was an American college and professional football player. He also worked as a sports commentator, actor, and owned profitable food franchises. He lived a successful life and “was a perfect example of the "rags to riches" fairy tale” (U*X*L Biographies). But, after June 12, 1994, the day of his wife’s and her friend’s murders, his life would never be the same. O. J. loved the game of football since he was a young child.
Young also won the 2005 Cingular Player of the Year Award, All-American Offensive Player, and The Maxwell Award (college player of the year). He is what some would call the best college football player ever, and he fills this role pretty well. A perfect display of his dominance was exhibited at the 2006 Rose Bowl where he compiled 467 yards of total offense and 3 rushing touchdowns. Young’s third touchdown came in the final seconds of the game where he ran around the outside and went untouched into the end zone to put Texas up 41-38 over unbeaten USC. But like Redick, Vince keeps it together off the field.
Barry Sanders vs. Walter Payton Running back is the most glory filled position on the football field. They touch the ball or have a big part in every play blocking, faking, or route running. Playing this position isn't easy. It takes speed, strength, size, mental toughness, and knowledge of the game. There are many great running backs that displayed all these qualities.

Joe Montana: Simply the Best Joe Montana, the comeback kid. Many believe he is the best to play the game, other will argue differently, but there is no argument in saying he is ONE of the best QB's to play the game. Joe Montana was the quarterback who made the 49ers. He ran the Bill Walsh offense to near perfection. I have made this page in honor of the greatest (in my opinion) QB of all time, who lead his team to 4 Super Bowl Championships and boasts 3 Super Bowl MVP's.
One of the possible alternatives that I have actually begun to take part in since college is flag football. Flag football is the perfect alternative for those parents who want their children to be as safe as possible but still get the benefits that actual football has too. The rules for flag football are clearly laid out by Plumer "Removing the flags around the ball carrier's waist equates to the same thing as a tackle in full contact football. The only requirement of the field is that it is rectangular with two even end zones this free form format allows for flexibility in finding a field. Overtime games are decided by a field goal shootout, and after a touchdown a team is granted one point for kicking and two points for running or passing the ball into the end zone.
So, if you love football as much as I do, and know a lot about the sport like I do, whether you’re a Lions fan or not it’s not hard to see what I’m talking about when I say that the Lions have the best receiving core in the league. Let’s start with their best wide receiver, standing at six foot five, number eighty-one, Calvin Johnson. Calvin or better known as “Megatron” is the best receiver in the NFL period. The numbers and the amount yards and touchdowns that he has had proves it. I don’t know his exact yardage or the exact number of touchdowns that he has had off of the top of my head, but I do know off of the top of my head that that the last two years he has racked up receiving yards to a total of about four thousand yards.
