Top 5 Canadian Football Quarterbacks of All Time
With his big physique earning his way to a star quarterback, he was a career leader in the league before his retirement in 2007. Allen's four Grey Cups, won with three different teams, marks him as one of the best in the sport.

Despite his lack of success in the NFL, he was voted Grey Cups, Most Valuable Player, twice. Whilst also being the first black and underived quarterback to be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame back in 2006.
Arguably one of the best of all time has to be Doug Flutie. Whilst only playing for 8 seasons of Canadian Football, he still owns the CFL record books to this day and was also nicknamed as the League’s most magnificent player in six separate seasons.
Taken in consideration that he wasn’t big enough to fit the quarterback position, he changed everyone’s insight when he signed with BC Lions back in 1990.
Calvillo is one of Canada’s all-time best passers with over 73,000 yards and counting. Also holds a world breaking record with 418 touchdowns, a record which may never be reached.
Leading in so many categories, Calvillo is undoubtedly one of the best in the field hence winning three grey cups in 18 seasons.
