Happy about 3 points, sigh.... =(
no qb that threw more int than tds should be on the list
When Death Smiles Upon You the Infantryman smiles back
4. P. Manning
You can argue the order, but I don't think there's any argument that these are the top 4. So here's where it gets interesting...
5. Joe Flacco - He's not the kind of qb that gets the spotlight, but he's a monster in the playoffs.
6. Matt Ryan - Very good td/int ratio and qb rating.
7. A. Luck - Throws more picks than I'd like but the guy had a great rookie year and he's likely only going to get better.
8. E. Manning - Two rings, not great during the season but knows how to win when it counts.
9. RW Griffin - Despite only going 9-7, his rookie numbers were pretty damn impressive. I do worry about how much game time the knees will cost him over the years.
10. Ben Roethlisberger - I don't think he'll be top-10 for much longer but based on what he's done in his career, he earns the spot.
People who didn't make it...
Tony Romo - can't win a big game
R. Wilson - will probably replace Big Ben on the list very soon
C. Kaepernick - I just haven't seen enough of him in half a season to put him on the list. Maybe he's the real deal but it might also be possible that defenses will figure him out and he'll fade out like the Miami wildcat.
After that, I really don't think anyone else belongs in the conversation. Cutler turns the ball over too much and has done too little in his career to be on the list, imo.
Not enough body of work for any of these rookie QB's to be on this list!
