There is no clear answer to this question because it depends on how you look at the data, but if you think about it, the best quarterbacks in the league are all in their mid-30s.
That means you’re looking at the best in the world if you want to win games.
We all know how good these guys are, but the truth is, we don’t know how much better they were in their prime, so how much longer will they be great?
So, it’s not that surprising that the best of these quarterbacks have already retired.
This list is not meant to be definitive, and while the best players in the history of the NFL have gone down the hallways, there are still some who have yet to play in the game.
Here’s a look at some of the best we know about.1.
