bingo dan rooney

your list is spot on as well..


although if brady was behind our o line, he would be much lower down the list.

all that being said.. i'd still take ben over manning, brady, and brees..

maybe not over rodgers as he does have some mobility, but the other 3 would be in for long days behind our o line.

All these QB's listed are great, but i would take ben over any of them hands down!
Ben's style of play fits our team, and none of the QB's mentioned could come here and have the sucess he has. On the other side you could take ben and put him behind some of the other teams O-lines and he could put up some of the same numbers they have. With that being said no matter what situation he is in he could prosper in all. i cant say that about any of the other QB's listed! Hell none of those other QB's could take Suggs and push him off, and make the completion like Ben did last year!!! All other QB's would be plastered in the field and crying for a flag!!! Not Big Ben!! Thats why I love our QB!

That's about as fair of a ranking as it gets.

Did somebody put Sanchez in their top 10? smh. Even putting Flacco in the top 10 seems comical. Even though he has similar numbers to Matt Ryan, you don't hear people saying "they'll never win because Matt Ryan is their quarterback." Can't say the same for Flacco.
Your rankings are spot on, except I would put Rivers above Roethlisberger and Rodgers above Brady.

Ryan pottentially could be higher had he not performed terribly against Green Bay in the play-ffs. I look for him to surpass Vick, Ben, and possibly Rivers this season.

Vick is going to fall off. DC have figured him out.

1. Tom Brady owns this spot until further notice...
2. Big Ben - 3 SBs, Playoff record speaks for itself and regular season aint too bad eaither!
3. Drew Brees - Did we forget him? Look at his body of work! Look at the team that won the SB... That D was shaky at best!
4. Aaron Rodgers - Coming into his own... but 1 season don't make you #1!
5. Peyton Manning - on the downhill slide. Best regular season QB.... Playoff = NOT

From here it's a crap shoot just for the fact that only Eli, who got lucky, is the only QB (other than McNabb and Hasselbeck) that's even been to a Super Bowl! And none of them are Top 10 any more! Watch this season and see if you have Sam Bradford and Matt Stafford in the top 10....

Ooops, I forgot the REX GROSSMAN took the Bears to the SB...

Not worth discussing since the premise is cracked to begin with:
Eli is no where near in Brady's class. End of discussion.

Eli didn't even make top 100 players, as voted by his peers. He is
not even top 10. Might be top 15.

Brady
P. Manning
Ben
Rogers
Brees
Rivers
