Only four players remain in the contest to be named "The Best Quarterback Ever".  The top three seeds (Marino, Montana, and Favre) all made it into the final four, but Elway wasn't as fortunate as he was upset by number five seed Fran Tarkenton.  Now to make the final four more interesting and a little more in-depth than the previous rounds I decided to find the best years (statistically) of each of the four quarterbacks.  I then decided to pit all four of our quarterbacks against the fierce 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Defense (My favorite team, so I picked our best defensive year :] ) I am doing all this with the help of What If Sports.  All games will be played at Raymond James Stadium (Bucs homefield) and in 80 degree weather.  Game results will be ABOVE the rankings and the previous matchup reults and new matchups to vote for are below rankigns as usual!

After Seeing such brutle results I wanted these quarterbacks to show some success, so I decided they would still face my beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but they would face the worst Bucs team ever and arguably the worst NFL team ever.  The 1976 Buccanners are now going to be the quarterbacks' opponents.  I still used the quarterbacks best seasons.
