I will follow that up with, if one would base the list on a players Career/Potential/and Talent, Andrew should be Top 20 out of the players today. I honestly don't think 1 GM would take 20 other players over Andrew if given the choice. He is at worse a Top 7 QB in the league when healthy, the other QB's being better would be Brady, Rodgers, Ben, Brees, and I will give it to Cam because he won MVP, then between Wilson and Andrew you could flip a coin. Then I am sure there are a few Defensive players some GM's may take over Andrew like Watt for example, and maybe a couple of RB's, WR's/TE's, and O.Lineman, etc.. but that is about it.
I believe Peyton went to 50, list is based on expectations for this year which has to be based on previous plat especially last year, peyton was lessened to 50 based on pre injury play and those that believed he would come back from surgery I imagine
Not meaning to throw a monkey wrench into this but as I recall Manning made the list without playing one down before. I cant remember what the exact number was but Payton missed the whole year and still made the list. I came to the conclusion that this list was garbage and has no value what so ever. All it is is fill in space for the media during the off season.
But the problem is that list -- if I remember correctly -- is how the players performed last season. Yea, of course a ton of GM's would take Luck over several of the names above him on the list, but in terms of performance, last season he was garbage and he was even more garbage once he got injured because he couldn't even play. He even said it himself he played awful before the injuries. He was an INT-machine.
