Fans will vote to decide the greatest quarterback in each team’s history, each division’s history, each conference’s history and, finally, the league’s history. We’ve listed the four best players at the position for each team below.
Because we’re trying to whittle the list down to one final quarterback, on some players we had to decide between two teams where they had success. For example, Kurt Warner may be considered one of the four greatest quarterbacks in Rams and Cardinals history, but we picked St. Louis because that’s where he had greater success.
Voting is live to determine the greatest quarterback in Colts, Jaguars, Oilers/Titans and Texans history. Voting will start for the AFC West on Feb. 4, NFC East on Feb. 11, NFC North on Feb. 18, NFC South Feb. 25 and NFC West on March 4. The NFL’s greatest quarterback will be announced on March 18. Vote now to see who will move on to the AFC South finals. You can vote for the best quarterback in AFC South history on Wednesday.
