just so you know, the whole "trent dilfer" thing is getting pretty old. brady has won TWO sb's and has never lost a playoff game. please check dilfers stats and get back to me. tia. Dilfer's Stats = 1 SB. That's all that matters, right? Super Bowl wins.Marino's Stats = 0 SBs. Dilfer's better under your criterion. That's so far fetched. Dilfer played with one of the 2 or 3 greatest defenses EVER. Not to mention a healthy Jamaal Lewis. Dan Marino was a great QB, sure. But much like Manning, they share the flaw of not being able to make things happen when the game falls apart. Brady and Montana, while not swift of foot, are at their best when the pocket collapses, when they need to buy time, when there is 2 minutes left, etc. They have all the intangibles. No one can make those arguments about Marino or Manning, because those guys collapse as soon as they can't get rid of the ball in less than 3 seconds. This means they can dominate by passing out of the pocket week-after-week, but when they get in the playoffs where the real defenses are, they can't get it done. There is no proof otherwise by either player. So while I acknowledge they are great pocket passers, they are not top 2 or 3 all time NFL QB's.
