topazcat11/2/2011Young had the accuracy, intelligence, and athleticism to be one of the greatest of all time, and he delivered. His quarterback rating, touchdown to interception ratios, and just about every other indicator of success are among the best of all time. Young also got a ring which he earned going up against a Troy Aikman team filled with Hall of Famers as well as Brett Favre's Packers. Who knows how much more success Young would have had if he hadn't spent so many years behind Montana and then had his career shortened on the backend by concussions.

There is no arguing that Favre was great, but when you compare the two apples to apples, Young was clearly better.
