    Rank the NFL QBs

    Rank your top 16 (top half) qbs in the NFL. The way I'm doing my list is if next season I had to win one game, who would I pick first as my qb?, who would be second?, etc. I'm going off of what I know, and mixing in a little bit of improvement (for example, Peyton I expect to be even better b/c of improved football shape, more arm strength, etc, and like for Luck, I expect a jump in his development from year one to year two).

    1. Peyton
    2. Rodgers
    3. Brady
    4. Brees
    5. Eli
    6. Big Ben
    7. Matt Ryan
    8. Flacco
    9. Romo (Still can score tds like crazy)
    10. Rivers (He had a horrible season, but he can still score tds)
    11. Wilson (He was ROTY imo, I expect another good season)
    12. Luck (He finished the year strong, and is the smartest of the young qbs)
    13. Kaepernick (a better RG3 imo)
    14. Stafford (his 2011 season was great, drop off last year, but I expect at least 28 tds from him this year)
    15. RG3 (his injury will really hinder his run ability, we'll find out how good he is a mostly pure passer)
    16. Dalton

    P.S. My list isn't set up to be a prediction of how I think these qbs will rank at the end of next year's SB.

    4. Eli Manning
    5. Tom Brady
    6. Matty Ice

    10. Russell Wilson
    11. Andrew Luck
    12. Colin Kaepernick
    13. RG3

    Haha, well 16 is half of the 32 qbs. Does anyone really care who the worst qbs are? And if you do care, then Birdman has kindly posted the list of worst nfl qbs (minus Elway)

    If you had to win one game, regular season, or playoffs?

    Most recently I think it's hard not to take Eli or Flacco as a top must-win playoff QB.

    Regular season it's much easier to choose Peyton and Brady.

    That's the thing. I think there are a lot of variables involved. Eli is a guy that I would say you could put on a lot of different teams and win a game with him throwing it. Flacco, I really don't know. I would definitely say that Brady, Peyton, Rodgers, and Brees all qualify. So given the unknown. I would start with the guys that are interchangeable. You can put them on any roster, and expect to compete. I'll be a trendsetter and do a top ten. And I'll explain my madness.

    1. Manning - You can argue that he's not clutch, or struggles in adverse weather conditions, but he basically becomes your offense when he steps into the locker room. Everything starts and ends with him. So regardless of what kind of team you have, you'll still have a chance to win.
    2. Rodgers - Based on the fact that he can do it all, and you consider the team he had this year. They couldn't run the ball all that well, and the defense wasn't very good. He still had an MVP caliber year.
    3. Brady - Primary reason is how effective he can be under pressure. He can beat a team despite that pressure, and not turn the ball over. The other thing is that he does everything that you want a quarterback to do. He's not mobile, and neither is Peyton, but he moves around the pocket enough to buy time.
    4. Brees - In an all or nothing scenario, there's a chance he can be the reason you lose, but he can also beat anyone throwing the ball 30-40 times.
    5. Eli - Dude is clutch and makes ridiculous throws. Sure he turns it over, but in this situation, I'd rather have a guy that turns it over while throwing for 400 yds and 4 tds than one who doesn't turn it over but can't beat a good defense beyond five yards.
    6. Roethlisberger - He makes everybody better, because he gives them time to get open. I think he's pretty accurate and smart with the ball too. If the defense isn't good, he'll make the play from the pocket most of the time.
    7. Wilson - Ahead of RGIII only because I'd be afraid of Griffin getting hurt. Not only is he mobile, which is a huge bonus if you're facing a superior defense, but he's got a great arm and makes great decisions with the ball.
    8. RGIII - Again with the mobility. RGIII is one of those guys who you can do a million different things with. The defense really can't stop him if he's playing well. You have to be healthy to do that though.
    9. Flacco - He's proven that he can get out of trouble in the pocket and make plays on the move. He gives his receivers a chance to make plays downfield, and he's a good decision maker in a pressure game, which is what we're talking about.
    10. Romo - I can't believe it either. I put him on here for the same reason i have Eli up at 5. The exception here is that he's incredibly inconsistent. Particularly in big games.

    Actually, I would say that I wouldn't mind swapping Romo with Ryan. I would say Cutler, but he tends to disappear when the opposing team takes a significant lead (just my opinion). These are all just my opinions btw. Feel free to pick them apart.

    I'm just gna rank em as who would I want for just next year...one game is too little

    1) Aaron Rodgers
    2) Tom Brady
    3) RGIII
    4a) Peyton Manning
    4b) Russell Wilson (can't truly decide...I lean towards Peyton but I like Wilson's arm obviously better n the kid is as sharp as they come and super mobile)
    6) Drew Brees
    7) Matt Ryan
    8) Andrew Luck
    9) Colin Kaepernick
    10) Joe Flacco

    I put the two rooks so high because I have a ton of faith in them...and what happened to Peyton's arm in the extreme cold is worrisome, he had no arm and the SB could be freezing this year

    Flacco is gna get overrated and overpaid ...he played terrific in the playoffs but I sware, all you need to do against him is protect the deep ball, it's so obvious and nobody did it

    1) Peyton Manning- Say what you want but he is almost GUARANTEED to get you to the postseason. Then it becomes a question if the team will step up for him in the postseason

    2) Aaron Rodgers

    3) Tom Brady

    4) Drew Brees

    5) Joe Flacco

    6) Eli Manning

    Flacco is good now, but he is really the primary example of how overrated playoff wins are for measuring a QB...BAL once won a PO game when he went 4/10 completions with 1 pick...if that doesn't tell you a PO win doesn't make a QB legit, nothing will because your in severe denial
