    You’re reaching for Kelly over Marino.

    The category is for the best QB. No way Kelly was a better QB than Marino.

    How many HOF caliber players did Kelly play with? Just the cream of the crop would be Andre Reed, Bruce Smith, Cornelius Bennett, James Lofton, and Thurmon Thomas. Did I leave anyone out? I think Reed is the only one on this list not in already, so he’s the only one even debatable.

    Now Marino … uh … Oh, Zack Thomas! yeah, that’s a good one … uh … I guess we could throw in Don Shula for counterweight, but Marv Levy is in already too … uh … Richmond Webb? Maybe … uh… Duper and Clayton? Anyway, you get the idea. Remember that Marino played 7 more years, and so had more teammates.

    I have always been a big Kelly fan, as he ran the run-and-shoot like no one before, but I can’t put him ahead of Marino for best QB.

    To put Kelly at the top, you’d have to come up with a new list, like best QBs who SHOULD have won the big game or something, but he’s no better than #2 here. It may be tough putting him in front of Tarkenton, too by the way. He had all of the passing records before Marino came along.
