Big Ben
Peyton
Eli
Brett
Tom Brady
Donovan
Drew Brees

Eli -No
Brett -NO (not anymore)
Tom Brady -NO (not this year)
Donovan -No
Drew Brees -No
i would also say
Cutler (maybe) and Rivers (maybe) are close even though i dislike both of them.

I dont know about Big Ben... but Romo fits with those guys I think. (and that takes a lot for me to say that being an Eagles fan)

I think Top 5 TODAY (which excludes Brady) are..in no particular order

- Romo
- P Mannning
- McNabb
- Rivers
- Roethlisberger

I think Brees is real close as well

personally, I think Romo's about the most overrated qb in the nfl. gets more press time due to his out of football life and how many BIG games has he won... ZERO, blown by himself, multiple.

my top 5 (if all were healthy)
P. Manning
Brady (although I can't stand him)
Roethlisberger
McNabb
Brees

I've never bought into the Big Ben hype, and NO WAY would I ever have him in front of a presumably healthy McNabb. It is tough though, to rate QB's, as they all have different variables to consider. (O-lines, TE's and WR's to alleviate pressure) I'm not knocking Romo, as I feel when he's given adequate time in the pocket, he's one of the best. I would just like to see what he would do on a team like SF or TB. It could be said about any QB for that matter, but I always wonder if Romeo would be regarded as one of the best if he had less firepower and had to fit balls into tighter coverages. We're not going to find out anytime soon barring an injury to TO and Witten (the best at each respective position IMO). Work with what you have.

With that said, my top 5 reads:

1. Brady
1A. Manning
3. McNabb
4. Romo
5. Brees

I think by the end of the year Cutler will be an elite QB, now that he has his diabetes under control he's looked very good this year.

I agree 100%. By the end of the year, both Cutler and Rodgers will move up the board tremendously. I'm still on the fence about Rivers. I think the fact that he looks like a rich frat boy and his actions in the IND/SD playoff game are the root of my distaste for him.

I don't think people have ANY idea how difficult it would be to play football with that issue, controlled or not. My hats off to him.

Romo has the best offensive line in Football right now.
He has pulled some big chokes and has thrown some
very ill-timed interceptions in the past.

He has arguable the best Tight End in football (include blocking)
a good stable of running backs, and one of the best Wideouts
in football.

I abstain for now on calling him top 5.

Actually, Ryan Leaf is doing better now post-NFL than alot of NFL quarterbacks. This is a good piece on him. He is doing well in Canyon, TX, close to Amarillo, is very popular in the community, and the Buffs are doing great.

Plus, I like the part about how he lives in an 1,800 square foot home, banking what he made in the NFL. Smarter move than most. And with a few million in the bank, he is a trillionaire in the Texas Panhandle...
