Trying to decide who the first names to reveal as quarterbacks on the NFL 100 is a relatively easy call when two players have combined for 10 Super Bowl victories, 7 Super Bowl MVPs, and five league MVP awards.
Thus, The NFL wasted little time in announcing the first two quarterbacks to join the NFL 100 All-Time Team this weekend. San Francisco 49ers legend Joe Montana and New Tom Brady of the New England Patriots – to the surprise of nobody – are the first two quarterbacks to be named to the NFL 100 All-Time team.
Eight more quarterback spots remain on the team. The remaining quarterbacks on the squad will be officially announced on Friday night on NFL Network.
Both Brady and Montana will appear in some capacity during Friday’s programming. Brady taped an in-studio segment with co-hosts Rich Eisen, Cris Collinsworth, and yes, New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Montana will reportedly appear during the live reaction show following the two-hour finale on Friday.
Interestingly enough, NFL analyst Cris Collinsworth said on Sunday night there are going to be some surprises regarding names who didn’t make the cut.
Regardless of who those names are, these two were the biggest locks on the list.
In fact, if the NFL just stopped with these two, they would be just fine.
