Just interested in what people thought here. Who are your top ten QBs in order. I suspect we'll all pretty much have the first two the same but I'm interested in seeing the remaining 8.

1)Peyton Manning
2)Tom Brady
3)Carson Palmer
4)Ben Roethlisberger
5)Tony Romo
6) Marc Bulger
7) Matt Hasselbeck
8) Eli Manning
9) Phillip Rivers
10) Drew Brees

I'm one of the biggest carson palmer fans but why is he always slated as the 3rd best qb in the league?

what has he done to earn that?

if you go by physical ability than i agree but i don't think he's really accomplished anything.

Well in his three years as a full time starter he averages a 65% completion rate, 4001 yards, 29 TDs, 15 INTs, and a 93.9 QB rating a season

Why not...i think that is pretty honest. I would obviously take Ben over any QB, but i still think he has a way to go before he is at Manning (or even Brady) standard. The rest of the list is just personal preferance i guess.

Oh no, here we go. Eli over Romo? nooooooooo. Romo, Brees, and Hasselbeck are the top three QB in the NFC, Eli cannot touch any of them right now. He's going to have to sustain that level of play he had in the playoffs for atleast a full season before he should even be mentioned w/ those three.

I was also considering Philip Rivers and Jeff Garcia. Even though I hate Rivers as a person, he has been a good QB and his gutty performance in the AFC Championship make me look past his personality flaws. As for Garcia, the guy is just a winner, he has something about him that makes his teams win. Look at Philly when McNabb went down two years ago, and this year when he took a 4-12 Tampa Bay team to the playoffs.

I agree with this statement completely. Garcia seems like a natural leader to me. He may not be the best QB in the league, but I think his leadership skills make up for that.

Its the one thing that I think Eli is lacking - he had a lot of veterans last year and I think they were the leaders that took them to the superbowl. I think in 2-3 years though Eli could become the leader of that team and win another championship.

Gay Ork Wang

yea he never really had a chance to compete for the starting job, but he showed some promise last year, i really think he can step up this year. When Grossman went down he could manage the game and thats what the bears need. A strong Running Game, a Game manager and a Strong D. He will never be a Tier 1-3 but i certainly could see him in 5 and 6

well yea if you put it that way, but what has he really done.........

What else more do you want him to do? They have to score like 30 points just to hope to win because the defense is so bad! If the Bengals were top 10 in the NFL in defense they would be one of the elite teams in the leauge with the kind of offense that they have.

5. Eli - meh, we're all homers and I love having Eli under center when we need a late score, for his late game cool he gets a lot of props from me, now he just needs to beat up on inferior teams like Romo and Big brother.
5. Romo - I like Romo but let's see him lead that team through the fourth against a top team when it matters.
6. Palmer
7. Hasselback
8. Marc Bulger - if that oline can bounce back and keep from being shell shocked like they failed to do with Kurt Warner
9. Rivers
10. Jay Cutler

I think Trent Edwards and Shaub could really gain some ground on the bottom of the top 10 as I love both's toughness and decision making on the move.

1. Peyton Manning - Not even close.

2. Tom Brady - Was not that great a quarterback statistically before this year.

3. Ben Roethlisberger - Really stepped it up this year and already has a superbowl ring.

4. Carson Palmer - Went down to injury and still put up very good numbers on a team that does little to nothing for him on defense.

5. Tony Romo - One of the best playmakers in the league at the position.

6. Marc Bulger - One of the most consistently good players for the past 5,6 years.

7. Drew Brees - Has put up very solid numbers once he got out of a bad situation in San Diego.

8. Matt Hasselbeck - Just like Bulger, has been very consistent in his career.

9. Donovan McNabb - Playmaker in every sense of the word, but can't seem to stay healthy.

10. Eli Manning - Shaky regular season player but has been solid in the clutch, so he makes the list.

Yet, you include a player that hasn't started an NFL game based on what you think he can do and put him ahead of players that have made multiple Pro Bowls and led their teams to Super Bowls (i.e. McNabb and Hasselbeck)?
