I'm sorry, what?
Well well, Sportingnews.com has unleashed its Top 20 Quarterbacks rankings heading into the 2009 season, and its laughable at best.
Heres the Linky.
My comments after the flip
Well that was entertaining.
Peyton ahead of Brady? Not in my book. Peyton had been previously blessed with one of the most talent laden teams (Wayne, Harrison, Clark, etc) and has only one ring to show for it.
Brady, long did a helluva lot without much for talent (Givens, Branch etc dont exactly match up). I may not like him, but Tommy Boy can play, and at his healthiest, is hands down the best QB in the league. Peyton has stats, but Tom has Wins.
Drew Brees at #3 I'd agree with. He seems to be the most talented Quarterback not to win a championship, but I feel the Saints are Superbowl bound withing the next couple of years.
Now the part where I get angry. You cannot tell me Palmer is better than Roethlisberger. He had more offensive weapons at his disposal (Johnson, Housh, Rudi at his brilliant best), yet he has been hampered by a string of injuries, a lack of consistancy in big games/crunchtime games, and a lack of moxie (personally i think hes a bit soft).
Big Ben has wins. Big Ben has 4th quarter comebacks. And, Big Ben has 2 Superbowls, one which he did brilliantly to lead us to the Superbowl then flunked in the big arena (SB XL) and one where he was a MVP calibre player, coming out with the greatest game winning drive in NFL History.
After the Top 5 I dont really care, but i needed to vent : )
Let your feelings be known BTSC
