Top 5 QB of all time

Here is the list of top 5 QB of all time.
Dan Marino, Brett Favre, John Elway, Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana
Next 10
Dan Fouts, Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Steve Young, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Jim Kelly, Bart Starr, Otto Graham, Keith Kermicle.
(not in any particular order, just a grouping)
Criteria: Cannot judge a QB on super bowl victories. Football is a team game, and the playoffs are a crapshoot. Anything can happen, bad weather, turnovers, injuries...and so on.
so my criteria is on total wins, TD passes, yards, and intangibles.
Marino and Favre are over 100 TD passes more than Elway, who is 3rd all time. Marino and Favre have more completions, yards, attempts than anyone else. Elway, Marino, and Favre are all neck and neck for most victories ever. Of course, Favre should pass them by next year.
We are also very aware of Mr. Manning's pace to shatter all of Favre's records. But we will allow time to pass by to see how he does.
This is a huge topic of conversation lately with the Super Bowl and the announcement of Favre's return. Reason for post is I was upset that "professional" announcers were shrugging off Favre as being in top 5 because of his interceptions. The stats tell it all. Favre, top 5 of all time.
