Who are the quarterbacks you really enjoy watching these days?

Namath: “I love the way Roethlisberger plays, the toughness, the fun, the kind of wild approach to the game. He looks like he really has fun with it. He likes to play and that’s what I always loved. I loved to play. I just wanted to play and when I got that chance, I took it and ran with it. That’s what Roethlisberger does.”

Elway: “Obviously, Tom Brady(notes) and Peyton Manning(notes) are great and everybody knows that. But when I’m watching now, I really like some of the younger guys, like Philip Rivers(notes) and Ben Roethlisberger(notes). With Rivers, the way he attacks the game and competes is really fun to watch. With Roethlisberger, he creates so much, sustains plays. Yeah, he reminds me of some of the stuff I did and he’s really gotten so much better at it over the past couple of years. He can extend a play a long time and make something happen.”

Just as long as he doesn't try to kiss him.

Marino doesn't mention him but mentions Eli. Says he likes the QBs who can throw the ball.
