A brief overview of a quarterback, which is a position in American Football, would be that the quarterback is the leader of the offense and touches the ball on every play. The player has to have a very high football IQ as he or she is the communicator between the coach and the rest of the offense while the game is underway. The quarterback needs to be able to read the opponents defensive coverage as well to be able to change their play to have optimal success. 

An ego (to a degree) is also needed to succeed at the position as the quarterback needs to believe that every play he personally calls or ball thrown will be successful. 

Other needs to be a good quarterback: 
Team player 
Cool Headed 
A Competitive Fire to win every game 
Clutch 
Physically Tough can withstand hits without too much compliant 
Field Vision to make correct reads 
Arm Strength to some degree but not most important trait 
Throwing Accuracy 

Which quarterback would you want making the plays for you under center? 

2017 Draft starts April 27th

The NFL draft is in 10 days and the voter is essentially drafting a QB. I thought it would make since to have the poll go live around that time.

ND: May I suggest that you add to the descriptions which actor played each quarterback in the poll?

FYC

I would probably remove Remember the Titans and Paper Lion as options since both are based on true stories and real people: Ronnie Bass - Wikipedia and  George Plimpton - Wikipedia. I would also either change the question or the title so they are the same. As favorite (ie most likeable) and best quarterback (ie most skilled) may not be the same choice for some poll takers. Otherwise, the list looks like a wide good selection of QB's from a variety of levels.

I am limited to 35 options, if that wasn't the case he would have definitely been included.
