There were a handful of comments here the other day, including my own. Now they're gone. Why is that?

We accept dozens. But when in doubt just go phonetically which will usually work on JetPunk. For example, Rothlesburger works,

Statistically, Aaron Rodgers is making a strong case for best ever. And while not quite as prolific, Russell Wilson ranks very high in certain key categories.

I have to update my data, but through 2015....

All-Time Best TD-to-INT ratio:
1.) 3.95 Aaron Rodgers
2.) 3.12 Russell Wilson
3.) 2.85 Tom Brady

6.) 2.09 Drew Brees
7.) 2.00 Donovan McNabb
8.) 1.96 Joe Montana
9.) 1.85 Ben Roethlisberger
10.) 1.83 Cam Newton

All-Time Best INT %:
1.) 1.61 Aaron Rodgers
2.) 1.93 Tom Brady

7.) 2.63 Steve Young
8.) 2.65 Cam Newton

10.) 2.71 Ben Roethlisberger

Marino, Elway, Favre and Kurt Warner just missed in both. Jim Kelly, Aikman, Moon, Ken Anderson, Staubach and Tarkenton round out the avg. Top 20.

Aaron Rodgers has easily claimed the top spot for raw passing ability. I don't know if you guys notice, but when I see Aaron Rodgers throw the ball, he puts a little love and a sprinkle of fairy dust magic into every one of his passes. I mean, I see it as he throws his weekly game-saving Hail Mary, or his expertly placed tosses to Jordy/Cobb, who make sideline catches look graceful and effortless. Man, that arm of his...

I didn't enter #1, because as a Jet fan, spite is pretty much all I have left at this point. I think Favre's star quality as a person always elevates him too high in these lists. I'd rank him below everyone on this list except maybe Jim Kelly. Warren Moon is tough to place because of his unusual career arc.

Do you think Favre's constant will he/won't he retirement thing hurt his legacy in the long run? I know it was becoming a joke at the time.

I don't think so. It didn't help him any at the time, but people will only really remember his years with the Packers. Plenty of all-time greats had sad endings to their careers, but people forget about that and just remember the years they dominated. The only thing that taints a legacy is an allegation of cheating during one's prime (steroids, most frequently) or some kind of criminal act terrible enough that people no longer want to acknowledge the guy's accomplishments (doesn't have to be double murder, but...that's one example).

Odell Beckham is not a quarterback. He is the biggest crybaby ever. In all seriousness, he is a wide receiver.
