Jim Kelly was in four super bowls. Had Buffalo won a few of them he would have been on the list. Great QB!

There is only room for ten quarterbacks. Brady, Favre, Elway, Marino, Manning, Montana, and Staubach are all better than Kelly for sure, and I never saw Unitas play, but most conversations put him right near the top of the list. That leaves Otto Graham and Sammy Baugh, each of whom may or may not be better than Kelly, but the list wants to cover all periods of the game to seem more credible, so they're going to include a few really old guys. Brees didn't make it either, and he's probably than Kelly too.

Kellen Winslow?!?!...he's not even the best TE who played for the Chargers. What about ANTONIO GATES!?!?!

Winslow was better than Gates. That being said, Gates should have been on here.

Don’t let this distract you from the fact that Polamalu lined up in the C-Gap.

I see that you're paying tribute to many old players from the old football era, but some of this is outrageous. Running backs: Clark, Moore, and Motley? Who? What about Faulk, James, Peterson, Tomlinson, Dorsett, Allen, Davis, Harris, etc. Tarkenton, Warner, Starr, and Brees could've made QBs, but that's fine. Then WR: Hirsch, Warfield, can't be here. Owens, Bruce, Reed, Ward, Brown, Irvin, Carter, Johnson, maybe? And the DEFENSE! Atkins, Hewitt, Buchanan, White, Hendricks, Schmidt, Christiansen, Houston, Tunnell can't be here. What about Sapp, Strahan, Peppers, Jason and Sean Taylor, Youngblood, Davis, Singletary, Urlacher, Nitschke, Willis, Law, Atwater, Woodson, Revis, Polamalu, Renfro, Bailey, etc. This list disappoints on so many levels. Nice try, Quizmaster.
