The Greatest NFL Quarterbacks Of All Time

40. John Brodie

His name tends to get lost in the conversation of best quarterbacks ever today but John Brodie was unquestionably one of the all-time greats when he retired in 1973. He spent 17 seasons with the San Francisco 49ers, being named NFL MVP in 1970 to go along with his one selection to the All-Pro first team. Today, Brodie’s massive numbers have been dwarfed a bit but he still stands at 43rd in NFL history for passing yards with 31,548 and 33rd for passing touchdowns with 214. However, he threw a ton of interceptions, as many of the greatest passers did, finishing at 18th all-time in that undesirable category with 224.
