Default Peter King/SI.com Rank QBs 1-32

Peter King admits he is just trying to stir things up in the pre-training camp lull, so he has his list of how he predicts NFL QBs will perform this coming year from #1-#32.

No surprise that Peyton and Brady are #1 and #2.

The laughs start with King apologizing for ranking Drew Brees over the sainted Carson Palmer at #3:

I'd take Drew Brees over Carson Palmer if I were starting a team right now. Sacrilege!

No need to apologize Peter - Brees has actually won a playoff game.

We then proceed through Tony Romo, Jake Cutler, and Jon freaking Kitna before we get to Ben Roethlisberger at #17:

Ben Roethlisberger 17th? What gives? From Year 1 to Year 2 of his career, his completion percentage dropped 3.7 points; from year two to three it fell 3.0 points. His TD-to-interception ratio, plus-eight in 2005, dropped to minus-five last season. He is profoundly inconsistent. I say he's a C-plus player until I see six or eight straight weeks of the same guy.

I know these rankings are subjective, but the apology that Palmer is not ranked higher and rankings of Cutler and Romo above Ben make it look like King has a serious mancrush on certain non-playoff winning QBs.

Vince Young as one of his upset top 10 QBs....Come on...He had a decent rookie year....Lets not put him in Canton just yet Peter.........lol He had games were he had 76 yards passing.....lol He made plays with his legs and thats why the Titans won some of those games...Lets wait and see what he does this year.....I remember when Mike Vick won that play-off game at Lambeau and alot of people thought Vick was going to do big things in the NFL.....So far it hasn't happened....So I want to see more from Young before buying into the hype....The league will catch up to him and his running ability...

As for Jon Kitna as another suprise top 10 QB and ranked ahead of Big Ben....thats just a joke and Peter should be smacked with hammer for writing that....lol

whats funny is the chart with p[layers stats he puts up to support his rankings. the chart and stats totally contradict his placement of ben. he says its about wins and yards per attempt yet discredits bens wins and near league leading ypa, by suggesting he will have the 17th best season this year.

either this is set up to get ben that coveted "comeback player of the year award" or we need to start thinking about drafting the next "brady quinn".

kind doesnt dissapoint me much but i have all the confidence he is way off the mark and will be eating some crow on this one.

I've seen bad articles but this is too much, Vince "overrated" Young is top ten? This guy just lost all his credibility.

You can tell Peter's going on vacation for the next month, leaving us all to hem and haw over his list. He's ranking all starting quarterbacks according to how he projects them to do in 2007, based on selected statistics from their 2005 and 2006 seasons.

Although I agree that Ben was inconsistent in 2006, I'd still rank him higher than 17 because he is a proven winner who was largely instrumental in the Steelers making it to the Super Bowl (his performances in the Indy and Denver games especially were exceptional), regardless of his poor passer rating in the actual SB. I don't know -- Romo? Young? Cutler? Kitna? McNabb? I'd take issue at the very least with all of them ranked ahead of Ben.

We can all agree that Ben had a bad 2006 (though he did finish 6-2), but apart from the horrendous number of interceptions, in my opinion his past performance indicates future success and I think he should have been ranked higher than 17.

McNabb Higher then Big Ben? BULLSHIT! Big Ben's got the Super Bowl ring and isn't in danger of losing his job. McNabb has missed 13 of the last 34 eagles games. Pathetic they rank McNabb higher. Not to mention mid season McNabb WILL BE REPLACED by Kolb.

This year we will know if he is fully healed from his infirmities. However, I am always skeptical of anyone named "Peter King."
