FIRST Take star Dan Orlovsky has caused a stir after revealing his list of the top five NFL quarterbacks of all time.

ESPN’s NFL analyst, 39, failed to account for four-time Super Bowl champion Joe Montana, prompting a backlash from football fans.

Few could disagree with Orlovsky in putting Tom Brady, legend of the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, at the top of his list.

Brady, who has just announced his second retirement, has won seven Super Bowl titles in his 23-year career — more than any NFL team has ever claimed.

But the First Take star’s other four picks have garnered him a fair amount of criticism.

Orlovsky went with Patrick Mahomes in second and Denver Broncos legend John Elway in third.

Peyton Manning took fourth place and Miami Dolphins icon Dan Marino finished the list.

And fans couldn’t believe Orlovsky chose Elway and Marino over NFL greats like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees or Montana.

But most agreed that the latter’s absence was the most egregious omission.

One NFL fan tweeted, “Sorry, but no QB top 5 list is complete without Joe Montana.”

Another wrote: “Bro really left out Joe Montana…”

A third said: “Wow that’s inexcusably bad.”

And one added: “I don’t think Joe Montana exists in Orlovsky’s world.”

After leading Notre Dame to a national championship in 1977, Montana won four Super Bowl titles with the San Francisco 49ers between 1979 and 1992.

During that time, he picked up two MVP honors and made the All-Pro First Team three times.

Montana spent the last two seasons of his 16-year career with the Kansas City Chiefs.

He retired as an eight-time Pro Bowl quarterback, two-time touchdown leader, and 1989 offensive player of the year.

NFL fans also pointed out Aaron Rodgers' absence
