In no particular order

Ben
Brees
P. Manning
Marsha Brady (hate to admit it, but he is in the top 5)

number 5 is tough----
Eli, Rivers, or (cough cough) Orton (this year)
Probably Eli, if the one considers the QB's whole career

You most definitely have to put Brees up there, Eli hasnt done anything to jump out at anyone. Last year when Brees had so many of his weapons go down with injuries, he still thrived and almost broke Marino's passing yards record. For me:


1) Peyton Manning

2) Tom Brady

3) Drew Brees

4) Big Ben

5) Aaron Rodgers

What all these responses really show is that their are four clearly defined elite QB's in the NFL right now. They are:

1. Peyton
2. Ben
3. Brees
4. Brady

Everyone else is fighting for the fifth through 32nd spots. Six through ten would have the following QB's in no particular order. Some are on the way up. Some are finishing a career. I base this on who I would want running my team if Ben should go down:

Rodgers
Ryan
Palmer
Rivers
Manning
McNabb

I didn't choose Favre or Warner because even though they should make the list, they are so close to the retirement home that I wouldn't want them on my team. I believe in long term stability at the expense of short term goals. I guess I don't think like Childress, who is forfeiting the Vikings future for this one shot at the brass ring. If he doesn't succeed, they are in trouble for the next five years.

This season at the moment:
1) Peyton
2):sissies:
3) Ben
4) Brees - He would be higher if he had a ring. Even though the list is for now, you can't assume big game greatness until it is proven.
5) Kurt Favre - I couldn't decide between the two.

It just goes to show ya how fast people jump on a bandwagon. All you have to do is read this thread to prove that. Schaub and Rodgers as top 5 QB's. It looks like all you have to do is string together 5 or 6 games to sell jerseys and be considered a great QB.

Sure wish he would have taken the Steelers offer and stayed as our backup and I'm sure he wishes that too . I never had a knot in my stomach when he came into a game.

I also wish he would've stayed with the Steelers... Could you imagine (let's hope and pray this doesn't happen)if Ben went down for season and the season was in Batch's hands? That's a scary thought.

1.) Manning-Flat out a first ballot HOFer, he's very cerebral which is what I like the most in a quarterback.

2,) Tom Brady- He's got three super bowl rings and was clutch in about 3 games. Hate him all you want and claim "cheater", etc, but he's a top 3 QB in my mind

3.) Big Ben-As a Browns fan it pains me to type this name, I hate the guy personally, probably my least favorite player in the NFL, But, He's good, I consider him the heir apparent to John Elway, the way he's able to shake off tackles, the number 7 on his chest and the fact that he breaks Browns fans hearts. He's the Cleveland Sports Anti-Christ, to LeBron's Messiah like figure. If I'm looking for one player for our next franchise QB to be modeled after, I'd go with him.

4.) Drew Brees- BEAST, and someone who I've been in love with since that magical season in 2000 when he led Purdue to a Rose Bowl.

5.) Eli Manning-Really a tough one here, I could make an argument for Romo, Palmer, Warner, McNabb and Rivers, but only one of those guys has a ring, and maybe, maybe if Orton somehow is able to have a good season again next season, I'd argue for him too. For now, I'll go Manning for his Super XLII preformance.

5 Whatever. Could be McNabb, Eli, Rivers, Palmer. All to inconsistent so they are equal to me

did you say Orton?

revefsreleets
11-12-2009, 10:46 AM
You know, prior to the ass whomping the Steelers D laid on Orton, he was putting up some pretty impressive numbers, was very efficient, but was lacking in YPC and completion percentage. He, too, is now the product of a super-friendly dink and dunk QB system which can make any piece of junk mediocre QB look exceptional.

I still maintain that 20 or so QB's in the league could put up equal or better numbers than Brady if they played for NE. Cassel himself did it last year. That wasn't a fluke, and it doesn't reflect on how great a QB Cassel is, rather it shows that working off a quick drop, short pass, quick release, high percentage passing game can really over-inflate the numbers of an NFL QB.

Ok...if we are talking "Greatest" Playing right now. Favre would have to be #1. Simply because he is playing at a very High Level, and is one of the Greatest to ever Play the game. he has the stats and a Championship and the longevity to back up that statement.

If we are asking who is playing "Great" right now, then you can toss Brees into the discussion but his entire Body of Work, with ZERO championships does NOT impress me. Same goes for Palmer and the number of Losing Seasons he's been part of. Rivers and Rogers are in this same category. Good QBs that have great games at times but haven't actually Done Anything YET.

Eli, if I need to have a guy make a miracle play to keep me in a game and a little 'luck o the Irish' to get my team into position to win the game, Eli seems to have that 'lucky lady' on his shoulder in most games the Giants need to win.

McNabb can be considered to be one of the Greats in the Past but his yearly perfomances decline each season and he Can Not Win the biggest games.

Warner has Stats, top 3 Super Bowl performances of all time, and does in fact have a Ring, So he can be considered to be a future HOF QB especially doing it against the Steelers Defense in the SB last year. He proved his worth and he's not having a shabby follow up year. Not great but not shabby.

Payton is a furture HOF because of Stats and his Huge Games in playoffs and in big spots, but he's also a choker, which he has done, time and time again in the playoffs going all the way back to his college days. He chokes in big spots.

Brady, tell ya what, if I'm down by 2 points, and need to get my Superb kicker into range in under 2 minutes to kick a game winning field goal after the opposing team kicks the ball out of bounds and I get to start from my own 40 yard line, I'd like Brady in that spot.

Ben, tell ya what, if I'm down by 3 points and want to WIN THE SUPERBOWL WITH A TOUCHDOWN LATE, and drive the length of the field (after a holding call) in under 2mins and 50 seconds, I'll Take Ben.

Yeah... um. Let's see.

If you want a quarterback that completes 41.5% of his passes in two games for a combined 379 yards, 1td, and 3 ints against average ranked 17.5th defenses, then Ben is your guy.

But, if you want a quarterback that completes 64% of his passes in four games for a combined 1001 yards, 7 tds, and 1 int against average ranked 7th defenses, I'd stick with Brady.

I'd also stick with the "Brady is a cheater" argument, because stat-wise, there is no question.

Oh you should know well enough by now that I don't use the "cheater" argument in regards to the Patriots in any of my discussions.

That 8 play 43 yard drive against the Eagles to set up a Field Goal midway through the fourth quarter was so very clutch of Tom.

Couldnt agree more. I dont think Ben could win with that team. I also think Morris didnt give him a fair chance either. I wish he wouldve stuck around. I figure he will be a FA in the offseason. Might as well correct that wrong huh?

Anyways here is my top 5 qbs in the league.

1. Peyton Manning
2. Drew Brees
3. Ben

That's the thing, though. The guy is a GREAT backup QB. But I just don't think he's got it in him to be a full-time starter unless he's surrounded by a really good supporting cast.
