    One. It has happened once. Kurt Warner, while playing for the Arizona Cardinals in 2005, completed 10 of 10 passes for 115 yards and a touchdown. The Cardinals lost that game (30–19) and Warner missed the second half after suffering a season-ending knee injury.

          Drawing on QBs of the past, IMO the perfect QB would combine the best of: Bart Starr, Joe Montana, Otto Graham, Sid Luckman, Johnny Unitas and Sammy Baugh.
