Who do you think are the five toughest quarterbacks in the league today? Vic: 1.) Brett Favre; he's proven it with his consecutive-games streak. 2.) Tom Brady; he's a closet tough guy. 3.) Ben Roethlisberger; he came back from two significant knee injuries and then led the Steelers on an eight-game winning streak to the Super Bowl title wearing a splinted glove on his right hand to protect a thumb that was thought to require surgery. 4.) Byron Leftwich; nobody is tougher, he just needs dramatic events and wins to prove it. 5.) tie, Steve McNair and Donovan McNabb; they've played hurt and led their teams to great runs. .
