Brees probably has 5 years left, if he can get 1 more Super Bowl win he will shoot up those charts, if he can get 2 more Super Bowl wins then there is lots of conversation for the top spot.

given the lack of credit for such a poor supporting cast over the years I can see it. Amazing

Favre won one sb and only went to two b2b. He is ahead because of more division titles and playoff appearances. Rodgers has only been in one SB. Consistency is king.
We're talking about great QBs, not great teams. QBs don't win division titles nor Superbowls, they help win them. Fouts was very good and should be on the list. Donovan McNabb is one of the greatest of all time by this logic.

Not really because other than those three straight seasons and the 2008 NFCCG what has he done? He also had a short career and 05-07 were dark years for him. Also, the NFC was weak then at the top and so was the NFC East. In fact when 2005 came around the NFC East got competitive and the eagles no longer ran over everyone.
