Where's Tebow?
 
2013-05-15 01:40:15 PM
Romo at 8?!?!?
 
2013-05-15 01:42:47 PM
I already put all four "young guns" ahead of Stafford.
 
2013-05-15 02:10:10 PM
Joe Flacco will not be amused when he finds out he's not an Elite Quarterback.

If Tannehill is indeed the most-improved quarterback in the game in his sophomore campaign, he'll rocket up this list.

Umm... I would hope so?  Isn't that what being the most improved QB is supposed to do to your ranking?

Eli Manning, Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo, Joe Flacco.

Two of these things are not like the others / Two of these things just doesnt belong...

While I appreciate that Ryan is statistically wonderful, between he and Romo they have fewer post season wins than the other 3 QBs have superbowl rings.

As a Ravens fan, I would go something like Rogers, Brady, Manning, Brees, Roethlisberger, Little Manning, Flacco.
 
2013-05-15 02:12:06 PM
Tony Romo is pretty good.
 
2013-05-15 02:15:39 PM
Colin Kaepernick has more playoff wins than Tony Romo.

I'm pretty sure roethlisberger's ranking is going to drop faster than those accusations. Body can't hold up, no more receivers, line still broken, and beanie wells?

Couldn't read past the justification for Brady seriously
 
2013-05-15 02:19:34 PM
Big Ben and Flacco ahead of Ryan, dude.
 
2013-05-15 02:22:22 PM
Honestly, I can't think of who I'd put ahead of Romo, other than perhaps Flacco. At some point one or two of the 4 "young guns" will get above him, but you can't do that right now after 1 season of exposure for them.
 
2013-05-15 02:24:19 PM
Flacco + Stafford are both better than Romo.
 
2013-05-15 02:27:38 PM
Eli, Romo, and Flacco higher than R. Wilson?  Damn.  I know this is only one year of Wilson, so I'm hoping that is why he is ranked lower.  Eli and Romo sucked horribly last year.
 
2013-05-15 02:28:55 PM
When I was at the draft party, Romo let me try on his armband with all his plays on it.

Plus the other guys have rings. Eli and Ben each have TWO rings.

Throwing for almost 4000 yards with a 26/15 TD/INT ratio is hardly "sucking horribly".  And yes, I'm sure they considered the length of the resume as well.

I'd also put Flacco ahead of Eli Manning. For two reasons:
1. Fark Eli Manning.
2. Flacco, in 5 seasons, has thrown either 10 or 12 picks every year. Eli's lowest INT totals are 9 (in his first season) and 10 (in 2008), with no other year coming in under 14 (15, 16, 17, 18, 20 and 25)

Due to the wild variance in Eli's INT numbers, he's not getting better or worse at making good decisions, it's just the bounce of the ball. Flacco, whose comp% is lower than Eli's, is more likely to either hit the receiver or no one.

Plus, Flacco's done it with a shiattier team than Eli, every season except 2012.

To be fair, Mark Sanchez has more playoff wins than Romo AND Ryan. Playoff wins ain't everything.
 
2013-05-15 02:34:38 PM
As much as I want to get in on this discussion, it's wayyyyyy too early in the off-season to start ranking QBs and offenses and defenses.

Maybe a bit closer to the HOF game, once the rosters have shaken out a bit and the teams actually have some padded practices and schemes in place and time to start using them.

So...say, mid/late July? Ish?
 
2013-05-15 02:34:40 PM

Smokey the Bare: Romo at 8?!?!?


Seems about right. Top 25% of the league, but just barely.

I can see an argument for flipping him and Flacco, but really there's no one below him who should definitively be above him yet. Though I could see 2of the 4 "Young Guns" making that change. RGIII will be better than Romo if he comes back from his knee injuries and FedExField decides not to murder him, but one season isn't enough.

Sanchize and/or Teblow higher than about 39 is over-rated.

I don't like the Pats but it's pretty hard to argue that Brady hasn't been a Top 5 NFL QB for the last decade.

For an elite QB and given today's passing stats, yeah, that's pretty awful.

But Tebow just wins games!*

It's easy provided you're not hindered by reality or not being willing to lie.
 
2013-05-15 02:38:52 PM
#12 and #14 are going to have a great rivalry for years to come.  Such a great contrast: Wilson is Mr. Perfect, the upstanding citizen, the guy you want your daughter to marry, the smartest guy in the room, with easily the coolest head coach in the league; Kaepernick is the bro-douche with the chin pubes, the Jesus tats and the armpit-sniffing routine, with a sniveling jackoff of a head coach.  It's gonna be a lot of fun to watch.

Dr Dreidel: Flacco, in 5 seasons, has thrown either 10 or 12 picks every year. Eli's lowest INT totals are 9 (in his first season) and 10 (in 2008), with no other year coming in under 14 (15, 16, 17, 18, 20 and 25)


Eli has a higher INT %, but he's also got a higher TD %.  He plays in a more complex offense predicated on downfield passing and a higher risk/reward, and opponents NEVER stack the box against the Giants run game, which is a frequent occurrence against the Ravens and Ray Rice.
 
2013-05-15 02:44:07 PM
FTFA-  "Just don't expect the critics to stop complaining until the Panthers produce a winning season, which might be tough with their defense."

I'm sure you're very, very busy, Mr. Writerman, but you just might want to review the NFL draft before you write an article like this.  In addition to returning the top tackler (and DROY) in the NFL and resigning Dwan Edwards, they picked up a pair of stud DTs (one of whom was the best in the draft) and a pretty solid linebacker.  The secondary is shaky, but nobody's going to be running much against them this year.
 
2013-05-15 02:44:22 PM
Swap Rivers with Romo.  If Ponder can't prodcue with his new recievers, well, we know that Matt Cassel can deliver if he has enough talent around him.

Which only tells me to ignore Eli's higher TD and passing yardage numbers - more passing with a higher risk/reward = OF COURSE any non-shiatty QB will have higher numbers than a power-run/PA QB. Eli's also had Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, and several other good WR options every year. Flacco's had the likes of Jacoby Jones, something that once resembled Donte' Stallworth, and the shattered husk of TJ Houshmandzadeh.

I'm also a Ravens fan, so maybe I'm just homering in addition to my Eli-hate.

I don't know why you bother...anyone arguing that Flacco is a better qb than Eli is, at best, unfamiliar with the game of football.

Wouldn't be fair if I didn't point out that for the 2012 season, Flacco had Boldin and Torrey Smith - the first decent 1-2 WR corps the Flacco-Ravens have had.

Rivers has precipitously declined the last two years.

Playoff wins are important, but they are team accomplishments, not individual accomplishments.

Along with inconvenient facts that you don't like.

FTFA: But he did just throw for 4,903 yards while completing 65.6 percent of his passes.

That pass percentage is 4th in the league. For reference, Tom Brady completed 63% of his passes last year. And the 4903 total yards? 3rd behind Brees & Stafford.

It could be. Although if your cawk is arm-sized you probably don't need a ring for it.

That, and the best 1-2 receiving TE combination outside of New England.

Colin Kaepernick also has a competent coach, a decent o-line, and a good defense supporting him.  Romo has none of those things.

That's fair, there's a very good argument to be made for Flacco, the fact that he's outplayed Tom Brady in back-to-back playoff games is at the top of the list.  Still, the Flacco vs. Eli numbers comparison is a tough one because they play in very different offenses.  Flacco's primary objective is to protect the ball and take what the defense gives him, Eli is asked to make more plays because that's what makes the Giants offense go.

There's really no right answer.  I wouldn't trade Eli for Flacco, you wouldn't trade Flacco for Eli, so we're both happy.

Stop being silly. If Tony Romo throws for 350 yards and 4 TDs in a playoff game, but his team still loses, he wasn't "clutch" enough. Period.

And a running game.

49ers running game: 2,491 yards on 492 carries. 5.1 per attempt. 4th Ranked.
Cowboys running game: 1,265 yards on 376 carries. 3.6 per attempt. 31st Ranked.

I'd say Detroit (Pettigrew, Scheffler) and Denver (Dreesen, Tamme) are probably ahead of Baltimore there, at least based on last season.

But we do not - WE. DO. NOT. EVAR. - show magnanimity.
