ESPN includes three Packers in all-time quarterback rankings

ESPN released its all-time quarterback rankings Monday. Green Bay Packers' signal-callers Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, and Bart Starr all finished in the top 15.

Senior NFL writer John Clayton put out the list, and slotted Favre at number seven, Rodgers at number 10, and Starr at number 11.

Clayton handed the top spot to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.

In his 16 seasons with Green Bay, Favre won one Super Bowl (XXXI) and three MVP awards. He also retired as the all-time league leader in passing touchdowns and passing yards.

Rodgers just completed his ninth season as a starter, after sitting behind Favre for three seasons. He has also totaled one Super Bowl (XLV), as well as two MVP awards. Brady and Rodgers are the only two active quarterbacks on the list.

Starr brought home two Super Bowl titles (I, II) and three NFL Championships (1961, 1962, 1965). He won his lone MVP in 1966.

The Packers are the only team with three quarterbacks on the list. Three other franchises have two quarterbacks listed (Denver, Indianapolis/Baltimore, and San Francisco).
