Default Is Ben best QB drafted in last 10 years?

Is Big Ben the best QB drafted in the last 10 years?

By Marc Sessler NFL.com
Published: April 13, 2012


Twenty-seven quarterbacks have been selected in the first round of the draft over the past 10 years.

Around the League ranked them from top to bottom. The core criteria is a mix of career achievement and future potential (for instance, Cam Newton at No. 5? You bet, based on what we've seen and what we expect to see).


You're an NFL general manager. Who do you want leading your team? Here's our list:

1. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers (No. 11, 2004)
2. Aaron Rodgers, Packers (No. 24, 2005)
3. Eli Manning, Chargers (traded to Giants) (No. 1, 2004)
4. Philip Rivers, Giants (traded to Chargers) (No. 4, 2004)
5. Cam Newton, Panthers (No. 1, 2011)
6. Matt Ryan, Falcons (No. 3, 2008)
7. Matthew Stafford, Lions (No. 1, 2009)
8. Jay Cutler, Broncos (No. 11, 2006)
9. Carson Palmer, Bengals (No. 1, 2003)
10. Sam Bradford, Rams (No. 1, 2010)
11. Joe Flacco, Ravens (No. 18, 2008)
12. Mark Sanchez, Jets (No. 5, 2009)
13. Alex Smith, 49ers (No. 1, 2005)
14. Josh Freeman, Buccaneers (No. 17, 2009)
15. Jason Campbell, Redskins (No. 25, 2005)
16. Vince Young, Titans (No. 3, 2006)
17. Tim Tebow, Broncos (No. 25, 2010)
18. Rex Grossman, Bears (No. 22, 2003)
19. David Carr, Texans (No. 1, 2002)
20. Byron Leftwich, Jaguars (No. 7, 2003)
21. Matt Leinart, Cardinals (No. 10, 2006)
22. Kyle Boller, Ravens (No. 19, 2003)
23. Brady Quinn, Browns (No. 22, 2007)
24. Joey Harrington, Lions (No. 3, 2002)
25. Patrick Ramsey, Redskins (No. 32, 2002)
26. J.P. Losman, Bills (No. 22, 2004)
27. JaMarcus Russell, Raiders (No. 1, 2007)

Based on stats per season, no not quite. Based on championships, hell yeah. Ben is THEE playoff QB and will probably go down as the best playoff QB in history. Rodgers and Rivers may have more in the raw talent category, but Ben is a winner, more than Rodgers and way more than Rivers.

I don't think Ben will ever be the best playoff qb thanks to his super bowl 40 performance.

If Big Ben had led the Steelers on that last drive in SB 45 to a TD, I would have said yes 100%.

To not put Aaron Rodgers at the top of that list is absurd and nullifies any claim to credibility this list might have from the outset. Rodgers had one of the best seasons of any quarterback ever last year. No other qb on that list has been an NFL MVP, and only Manning has also been a Superbowl MVP (not once but twice). This list defines stupidity.

As much as I am a Home town guy I still would put Ben right now behind Eli and Rogers who both are far superior in Xs and Os then Ben. However if a team coaches the Xs and Os better then Rogers and Eli they can be stymied with Ben and his street ball type of play a defense usually can never get him completely shut down.

I would say Ben needs to step some things up however as he more then likely is descending that list now more then rising.

Rogers has 1, that's right 1 ring, in how many seasons? The all mighty Eli finally got his 2nd and he was the number 1 pick! Ben has 2, been to 3 and was the number 11 pick... Put those number together and he has been the better QB!

He lead them to the first SB, no thanks to Bettis' fumble...
He should have been the MVP, NOT Santonio, against Arizona!!!
And he still had a chance to beat Green Bay, despite 5 team TOs, in the final 2 minutes of SB 45...
All with an o-line and OC that were worth about 2 cents!!!
