Yeh Namath isn't one of the all-time greats, just colorful. And the reason he gets so much credit isn't for predicting the win, it's the fact that he actually won the game after the AFL stunk in the first two Super Bowls - he proved the AFL could compete and his victory as much as anything else led to the merger of the two leagues.

Guy would hold a few records himself if you count his CFL stats with his NFL stats. Sure he had a few (really) dissapointing playoff losses, but he's maybe the best quarterback to never make it to the Superbowl (probably was) and was a hell of a player.
Perhaps if the Oilers were still a franchise, people might throw his name around more often.
I'd have to say my personal pick of a top 5 would be....
Dan Marino: Guy rarely had talent around him and made some players better than they might of been elsewhere. Set records in a ton of cagegories...that wasn't on accident.
Montana: He was good no doubt, but how much of this is credited to the fact he had Jerry Rice and John Taylor, Roger Craig, D anchored by Ronnie Lott, etc....?
Favre: Similar to Marino, but had a bit better talent. As tough as any of the old school QB's, and a better passer.
Elway: Ok, who else would you want with 2 min left to go in the game?
Moon: Underrated. This guy had a career that put up numbers that rivaled anyone here.
Steve Young needs mention too. Wojnder what he could have done over a career not partialy stuck in Montana's shadow.
