    QB's who played each other quite a bit during the ERA in which they were present:

    I'd say Brady-Manning is the best QB Battle we have going TODAY....

    I'm hoping to see Carr-Leftwich develop into something.....

    Ya'll give me some others to throw out there

    Old times is Joe Namath vs. Johhny Unitis (sp?)

    They combined for some crazy passing yardage when they faced each other.

    I remember Dan Marino and Ken O'Brien (Jets) had some real shoot outs.
    In one game, they combined for 927 yards and 10 tds. The Jets won 51-45 in OT.
    In a later game, Marino threw for 521 yards, but the Jets picked him off 3 times in the final 5:08 of the game to get the win 44-30.

    Here's a great link... scroll down to the late 80's for these games.

    Pastorini-Plunkett, started in High School, College, and they eventually ended up fighting for a job on the Raiders!

    I would have to say Troy Aikman and Jim Kelly because they played in the Super Bowl against each other two years in a row in '93 and '94.

    Elway and Marino both came in the league in '83 and both played for the same team for a number of years.

    But despite all that, they hardly ever faced each other on the field. Weird how the scheduling formula the league used to keep that from happening.
