Tom Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers! Who’d a thunk it?

I’ve seen the photo shopped pictures, but it’s still hard for me to imagine Brady in the Copper and Red colors of the Bucs. If we indeed have football in the fall it’s going to be quite interesting to see how he does.

While it will be strange to see Brady on another team, star quarterbacks changing teams are more common than you’d think. For every Troy Aikman, Terry Bradshaw, Eli Manning or Jim Kelly, who played their entire careers with one team, there are a dozen others who played for multiple organizations. And I’m talking big stars, not journeymen like Brian Hoyer, Jeff Garcia or Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Below are a list of 20 famous NFL quarterbacks and the team they’re most associated with. However, none of them played for that team their entire career. See how many you can correctly guess which team they ended their playing career with. I’d think if you get 15, that would be pretty good.

Answers are at the end of the column. If you cheat you’re only cheating yourself.

This is the kind of stuff I think about when no games are being played.

  • Joe Namath – Jets
  • Joe Montana – 49ers
  • Johnny Unitas – Colts
  • Jim McMahon – Bears
  • Brett Favre – Packers
  • Michael Vick – Falcons
  • Randall Cunningham – Eagles
  • Peyton Manning – Colts
  • Archie Manning – Saints
  • Jim Hart – Cardinals
  • Donovan McNabb – Eagles
  • Bobby Layne – Lions
  • Roman Gabriel – Rams
  • Kenny Stabler – Raiders
  • Norm Van Brocklin – Rams
  • Bernie Kosar – Browns
  • Warren Moon – Oilers
  • Drew Bledsoe – Patriots
  • Boomer Esiason – Bengals
  • Jim Zorn – Seahawks
