Honorable Mention: Aaron Rodgers
Some NFL fans will argue that Rodgers has already earned a spot on this exclusive list. After all, over the past decade, Rodgers has put up some of the best numbers in NFL history. Since taking over for Brett Favre in 2008, Rodgers has tossed 297 touchdowns compared to just 72 interceptions. That is UNREAL. Rodgers already has one Super Bowl under his belt, and looks poised to win another if the Green Bay defense can play their part. But including the 2016 season, Rodgers has played in just 142 regular season games (compared to 237 for Brady and 242 for Marino). With another 2 or 3 elite seasons on his resume, Rodgers will easily slide into the top 5. Assuming health and another Super Bowl (or two) — by the time he’s done — Rodgers could make a case for the top spot.
