Default Ben Ranked 5th; Charlie 46th

ESPN ranked all 64 starter and first back-up QBs in the league. Ben Ranked 5th behind Brady, PManning, Farve and Romo---my only quibble is ranking Romo ahead, but he has had a great year. I think Charlie should have been higher though.

Until Romo wins a playoff game, he can't be ranked above Ben. He is a good QB, and should be able to win a playoff game or two this year, but that is reading the tea leaves. IMO, Ben should have been ranked 4.

Romo has a higher ranking because, as mentioned above, Ben doesn't have a TO to throw to and help pad his stats. Romo is a really good QB but there are times TO makes him look even better than he is with some of his daredevil catches (as much as it pains me to give any compliment to TO).

Can't say I disagree with Batch's ranking. He is a viable backup for a game or two to basically game-manage (I hate that term!) and he does not have a terribly strong arm. He is a smart QB, though, and as the article states, knows his limitations. I love Charlie because he is a total teamer and is comfortable with his role.

i would take batch to be my backup qb anyday. i think he is very good at backing up ben and it seems that they have a good chemistry. at least we dont have brady quinn
