Where does Peyton Manning rank in terms of all-time quarterbacks in NFL history?

It's a question that many fans, commentators, and even players pose. And if he wins his second Super Bowl as the Broncos QB against the Seahawks Sunday, will his legacy change? 

Today Michael Irvin was given the tough task of trying to sort out his top eight QB's of all-time on NFL Network

Given the option of Joe Montana, Terry Bradshaw, Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, John Elway, Steve Young, Dan Marino and Troy Aikman, Irvin went about sorting his picks.

Irvin's top three favored Montana at number one, Aikman at two and Brady at three. However, if Manning picks up his second ring against the Seattle on Sunday he feels he would go up.

"If Peyton wins I would take him from number six and put him at least number two. 

"This game is huge for Peyton. I would say that winning two Super Bowl's with two different teams is the same as winning three with one team. 

"The object in this game is to lead men. This is why this game is different to basketball, baseball or golf, in which a man can have individual success. 

"You can't have individual success without the help of others in the NFL. The ability to lead men matters a great deal."
