Greatest Quarterback in each team's history?

Who's the greatest QB in each franchises history? Be sure to base it off of what that QB did as a member of that team. In other words, don't list Joe Montana as your pick for the Chiefs since he was only with them for two seasons and didn't accomplish much as a member of that team. And if you're unsure about a team, just skip them. I'll post my picks later.

Teams that I left off: Texans, Panthers, Bucs and Jaguars - I left these teams off either because they have a short history or because they've never had any notable QBs






























Edit: Should've left off the Ravens since they've only been around 13 years.

Patriots: Tom Brady

Jets: Joe Namath

Bills: Jim Kelly

Dolphins: Dan Marino

Steelers: Terry Bradshaw

Browns: Otto Graham

Bengals: Boomer Esiason

Colts: Johnny Unitas

Titans/Oilers: Warren Moon

Cargers: Dan Fouts

Broncos: John Elway

Raiders: Ken Stabler

Chiefs: Len Dawson

Eagles: ???

Cowboys: Roger Staubach

Redskins: Sammy Baugh

Giants: Y.A. Tittle

Vikings: Fran Tarkenton

Packers: Brett Favre

Bears: Sid Luckman

Lions: Bobby Layne

Saints: Archie Manning

Falcons: Bobby Hebert

Rams: Norm Van Brocklin

Seahawks: Jim Zorn

49ers: Joe Montana

Cardinals: Jim Hart

Update 2:

Edit: My pick for the Eagles is Donovan McNabb.

Update 3:

Why isn't anyone saying Sid Luckman for the Bears? Dude's in the HOF.

    A great QB, Top 20 all time, not greatest ever. With 45+ years of watching the NFL here is my Top 5: 1) Elway 2) Marino 3) Unitas 4) Staubach 5) Montana To Willy - talk about a R-Tard - Elway never lost 4 SBs, he was 2-3 in the 5 SBs he appeared in and the first 3 Denver would have never even been there if it hadn't been for Elway. He carried those 3 teams to the SBs. The 5 I listed as the best could carry a team all on their own talents. Favre is a great QB but never has had that talent.
