Definition of Elite:

1) Shows up on time
2) Tries to do what he's told
3) Hasn't strangled any dogs lately.

Yep, the man is elite.

/// Quota hire elite.

Definitely elite - I mean how many quarterbacks are there in this world - 10,000, maybe 100,000, maybe even a million or 10 million or more if you count the pee wees. How many of them can complete even one pass in the NFL? Maybe a few hundred (maybe a few thousand)? Now how many of them can play games at the NFL level? How many of them can play multiple seasons? Just a few hundred max, closer to a few dozen. I'd say belonging to that club makes anyone elite in every sense of the word.

Of course, that makes Sanchez elite too, but there you go.

That's a good way to look at it too. How would you slot them using your system?

Off the top of my head with no data in front of me:

Elite (You don't want to play these guys in the playoffs.)
P. Manning
E. Manning

Winners (These guys can be trusted with the ball when the game is on the line.)

Strong Managers/System QBs (If they played in Kansas City they would lose every game.)

Underperforming (They have the skills to get better, just need support. This is a transitional category.)

Wildcard Players (Exciting to watch, but unpredictable.)

Liabilities (More likely to be the reason a team loses than wins.)
Yabba Gabba Doo

Game Outcome Deciders (Win or lose, it's in his hands.)

Also, I agree with IAmRight; there are several you could put in more than one group, but it really defaults to the highest setting. Like saying a guy who's 6'6" is "at least 6 feet." It's true, but he's also "at least 6'4", so move him up when it makes sense to.

Romo is the Patrick Ewing of the NFL. Good, even great numbers year after year, decent enough team to get to the playoffs and maybe even a post-season win here or there with impressive QB performances from time to time. But when the game (no, the season) is on the line, it ain't gonna happen.
