Default Best Season Ever by a QB?

Well with the draft and most free agent signings behind us and a few weeks remaining until the team's camps start up, I figured I'd post a few polls just to give everyone something to do, so here goes:

What season was the most impressive ever by a QB? I have posted the top 17 individual seasons IMO so vote for your choice and explain why if you feel like doing so:

1. 1981 Dan Fouts - 360/609 (59.1%), 4802 yards, 33 TD, 17 INT, (90.6 rating), 22 carries, 56 yards (9th year in the league, 30 years old, team went 10-6).
2. 1984 Dan Marino - 362/564 (64.2%), 5084 yards, 48 TD, 17 INT, (108.9 rating), 28 carries, -7 yards (2nd year in the league, 23 years old, team went 14-2, and made the Super Bowl but lost, was named league MVP, still record for passing yards in a single season).
3. 1984 Joe Montana - 279/432 (64.6%), 3630 yards, 28 TD, 10 INT, (102.9 rating), 39 carries, 118 yards, 2 TD (6th year in the league, 28 years old, team went 15-1 and won the Super Bowl).
4. 1986 Dan Marino - 378/623 (60.7%), 4746 yards, 44 TD, 23 INT, (92.5 rating), 12 carries, -3 yards (4th year in the league, 25 years old, team went 8-8).
5. 1989 Joe Montana - 279/432 (64.6%), 3630 yards, 28 TD, 10 INT, (102.9 rating), 39 carries, 118 yards, 2 TD (6th year in the league, 28 years old, team went 15-1 and won the Super Bowl, not the most impressive stat-wise but team was great and he had a superb QB rating).
6. 1990 Randall Cunningham - 271/465 (58.3%), 3466 yards, 30 TD, 13 INT, (91.6 rating), 118 carries, 942 yards, 5 TD (6th year in the league, 27 years old, team went 10-6, solid passing stats, best running stats ever for a QB, decent team success, redefined the way the QB position could be played).
7. 1990 Warren Moon - 362/584 (62.0%), 4689 yards, 33 TD, 13 INT, (96.8 rating), 55 carries, 215 yards, 2 TD (7th year in the league, 34 years old, team went 9-7, great stats, especially at his age, pretty good team success).
8. 1993 John Elway - 348/551 (63.2%), 4030 yards, 25 TD, 10 INT, (92.8 rating), 44 carries, 153 yards (11th year in the league, 33 years old, team went 9-7, probably his best statistical season and he was pretty old, although it is obviously before his Super Bowl winning years).
9. 1994 Steve Young - 324/461 (70.3%), 3969 yards, 35 TD, 10 INT, (112.8 rating), 58 carries, 293 yards, 7 TD (10th year in the league, 33 years old, team went 13-3 and won the Super Bowl, was named league MVP).
10. 1994 Dan Marino - 385/615 (62.6%), 4453 yards, 30 TD, 17 INT, (89.2 rating), 22 carries, -6 yards, 1 TD (12th year in the league, 33 years old, team went 10-6, amazing stats for his age after a few seasons of relative mediocrity).
11. 1995 Brett Favre - 359/570 (63.0%), 4413 yards, 38 TD, 13 INT, (99.5 rating), 30 carries, 181 yards, 3 TD (5th year in the league, 26 years old, team went 11-5, was named league MVP).
12. 1998 Steve Young - 322/517 (62.3%), 4170 yards, 36 TD, 12 INT, (101.1 rating), 70 carries, 454 yards, 6 TD (14th year in the league, 37 years old, team went 12-4, great stats for someone his age).
13. 1999 Kurt Warner - 325/499 (65.1%), 4353 yards, 41 TD, 13 INT, (109.2 rating), 23 carries, 92 yards, 1 TD (2nd year in the league, 28 years old, team went 13-3 and won the Super Bowl, was named league MVP).
14. 2001 Kurt Warner - 375/546 (68.7%), 4830 yards, 36 TD, 22 INT, (101.4 rating), 28 carries, 60 yards (4th year in the league, 30 years old, team went 14-2, and made it to the Super Bowl but lost, was named league MVP, more yards and wins than in 1999 but fewer TDs, more INTs and they lost the Super Bowl).
15. 2002 Rich Gannon - 418/618 (67.6%), 4689 yards, 26 TD, 10 INT, (97.3 rating), 50 carries, 156 yards, 3 TD (16th year in the league, 37 years old, team went 11-5 and made it to the Super Bowl but lost, was named league MVP and had amazing stats for someone his age).
16. 2004 Daunte Culpepper - 379/548 (69.2%), 4717 yards, 39 TD, 11 INT, (110.9 rating), 89 carries, 406 yards, 2 TD (6th year in the league, 27 years old, team went 8-8).
17. 2004 Peyton Manning - 336/497 (67.6%), 4557 yards, 49 TD, 10 INT, (121.1 rating), 25 carries, 38 yards (7th year in the league, 28 years old, team went 12-4, was named MVP, set new single-season TD record).

I went Warner for some reason. I guess it was just so unprecedented, so surreal along so many plot lines. Truly one of the great stories that was some how tarnished in such a short time.

All of these guys are hard to argue against, and I was a bit torn between which of the Warner years to put on there, although the 1999 one was the better story for sure. Still, I voted for Peyton Manning as he broke a 20 year old record that no one thought could be touched and did so while only throwing 10 INTs and smashed the QB rating record. His 2004 season and Marino's 1984 season are probably the best statistically but when you factor in the teams success and everything that can change things a little.

I voted for Peyton in 04. Only reason why was because I remember that NO ONE wanted him to break the record on us.

I didn't vote however I would have a hard time voting for someone having the best season especially as a QB if it didn't end with a Super Bowl victory. I would probably have to go with one of Joe Montana's seasons.

I agree with you on that, a QB's #1 success should be measured by winning the ultimate prize. Kurt Warner's 1999 season did end with a championship and was far superior statistically to any Montana season, although Montana is my favorite QB of all time so I had a really hard time not voting for him and he's definitely my pick as the #1 alltime QB, but as far as best single season is concerned Montana didn't have one that really stood out.

Sammy Baugh. Not only because he was one of the first to throw the ball, he also threw a rounder ball in a time period that did not make up a bunch of sissy rules to make throwing the ball easier ( See Colts )

( and he played defense and punted )

Went with Manning, but I think Marino should be a closer 2nd than he is.

Went with Manning. Although I don't think he is much of a leader, and I think he gets payed WAY too much.... he has abilities that are unparalled. He also calls audibles like a mad-man and confuses defenses completely.

My second pick would be Other. I would go with Tom Brady, 2001 season. He didn't have an outstanding season as for stats.... but he did what a QB should do.... lead the team. He came in for Bledsoe early in the season and worked to move the team toward their first SB win. The 2001 Patriots are a prime example of the underdog coming up to be on the top.

Manning '04

I don't think he is the best QB ever but he did have the best season ever.

Manning had a great season-a 121 QB rating! Wow! Marino's '84 season is impressive too considering he threw for 5000 yards and was only in his second season. Marino's, I think, was more impressive, but I think Manning's is the best season by a QB.

in all seriousness, culpepper's 04 season was better than manning's. and for all the "BBBUT HE HAD RNADY MOSS DUED!1131313" people, he put up better numbers in the 4 games moss missed. better completion %, better QB rating, better YPA (very telling).

Yeah Culpepper had a monster season but it wasn't as good as Manning's imo. I'll take an extra 10 TDs with 1 less INT with my coffee please.

I disagree. If you stripped it down to a 15 game season you would see who had the better year. Manning had two attempts in the final regular season game.

Default No Montana?

I voted other. I believe Joe Montana to be the best QB of all time.

I know the poll is "best season ever", but I don't believe I should have to put my vote for Montana under the "other" category when most of the guys on the list have never won a Super Bowl.
