Greatest season ever for NFL QBs?

Even with marquee passers Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo and Andrew Luck missing chunks of the 2015 season and 14 franchises having to play backups, quarterbacks in the NFL have never been more efficient than they have been this fall.

Talk of Fame Network

The 2015 season has given the NFL the best quarterbacking it has ever seen.

Better than the 1960s with Bart Starr, Johnny Unitas and Joe Namath. Better than the 1970s with Terry Bradshaw, Roger Staubach and Ken Stabler. Better than the 1980s with Joe Montana, John Elway and Warren Moon. better than the 1990s with Troy Aikman, Steve Young and Brett Favre. Better than the 2000s with Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Kurt Warner.

So says noted NFL historian John Turney of the Pro Football Journal.

His conclusion is based on the controversial passer efficiency rating the NFL uses to crown passing champions. Give it a read and then draw your own conclusions:
