Rank The Top 3 Qb/ Backup Qb Duo in NFL history with a min 3 years backing the other up or vice vers
Dirk for President said 04/09, 04:47 AM
1) More Homerism- Joe Montana/ Steve Young
2)Roger Staubach/ Danny White
3) Phil Simms/ Jeff Hostetler
I will use this space to explain a little more, they have to have backed up the person a min of 3 years but it can also be an exception, say Warren Moon backed up Steve Deberg for 2 years but then started the 3rd year but Deberg backed him up that year then it counts as 3 years one way or another with same 2 people.
Hopefully changes can be made and if not then ill offer a draw

1. Staying with Montana / Young
2. Brett Favre - Aaron Rodgers
3. Michael Vick / Matt Shaub
Alright so I stayed witht he obvious dual HOF at San Fran. Easy choice.
#2: Brett Favre is a HOF shoe-in and one of the greatest Qbs of all time. In recent years Aaron Rodgers is looking brilliant and continues to improve. If he can keep it up and put in some solid double digit years, maybe he'll be a top 10 at the end of his days.
#3: Ok so I went with a risky pick here. Vick is the most iconic dual threat Qb in the history of the game. Shaub has some serious talent and has put up Pro Bowl caliber numbers in his only 2 full season as a starter.

Obviously we will see who prevails Old School or New School...
Obviously you are basing your td on the future potential of the qbs as where im focusing on proven winners and players
Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers would be a good choice, 5 years from now. Aaron Rodgers is a very good qb, but whose to say he doesnt have a career ending injury next year. He has to have a few more seasons of kick **** play in order for me to think they would be one of the best DUOS.
As for Vick and Schaub, this here may be your downfall. Schaub has been pretty good since he left for the Texans but Vick eh not so much. Im a Vick fan and him with the Eagles now has him in a better place but when he was with the Falcons he got by on speed alone. His accuracy stunk, he threw so hard his wrs couldnt catch his balls, he overthrew wrs because he couldnt control it, he ran too much causing unnecesary hits and fumbles, he may have been very exciting but the same thing that made him exciting to watch also was his downfall. Too flashy and cant read a defense to save his life.
And Remember voters, he has the biggest qb attention **** ever in his picks and a DOG Killer
Voting Left is a Vote for Dogs

I see you are fairly new to the world of FN. Let me tip you in a few things you should avoid in order to convince the voters onto your side of the table:
1. Don't say "he might have an injury" as an excuse on why someone shouldnt be considered. Rodgers has started 3 seasons with the Packers, already winning 1 SB and SB MVP award. As a starter, 87 TDs and 34 picks. He already has just as many Pro Bowls as your boy Danny White does.
Plus, Rodgers did something that Staubach never could... beat the Steelers in the SB.
2. Take a risk here and there. That's where Vick and Schaub come in. Yeah they both played in the last 15 years but Vick will forever be known in the history of the game for having ridiculous talent.
Im questioning your arguement about vick here: threw so hard nobody could catch the ball? Brett Favre BROKE FINGERS and his WR's always had good numbers. Poor excuse.
HE WON GAMES FOR THE FALCONS THAT ONLY A HANDFUL WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BECAUSE OF HIS ATHLETICISM. He's matured now, still have running ability and his numbers is right to par with most QBs in the league.
Dog killer? Really? Go check out TD's from 3 years ago if you wanna bring that up...

What can I say im Probably licked. I am fine with the Montana/ young pick and Staubach/ White but probably was destroyed for Simms and Hostetler.
I was so focused on more old school that I didnt delve deep into new school but the Favre Rodgers combo was a nice one, still not totally sold on Vick and Schaub
As for the others, I thought bout Unitas and Morrall but just didnt pull the trigger on it.
Ahh well better luck next time

Threw in the towel on your final arguement.... nice way to wrap up a lousy 1 and 2.
It's ok, you're still young in terms of FN record, as am I.
Here's what I'm really wondering about these days:
1 - Thank you USA Gov't for finally coming to an agreement so I can get my money.
2 - Poor Japan.
3 - NFL players need to really weigh other options, like competitive fishing or starting a arts/crafts show like Martha.
4 - Charlie Sheen is still living up to the title of "Wild Thing", bring back the haircut and its a wrap.
5 - Dear Gandhafi, see #3.
6 - No Crosby, No Malkin.... maybe a Conference Final playoff run is looking like a good season right now?
