Rivers is one of my favorite QBs all time. I have liked him since he was at NC State. Too bad he never won a Super Bowl; that could keep.him out of the Hall of Fame. I think Rivers is a better QB than Eli but Eli has the rings. Eli may win another one -- Giant are looking good for next year.

 

I've never liked Rivers, but I cannot deny that he is a talented QB.  If we are just going off of last season to determine who is the better QB right now, then there is no question that Rivers is better than Eli.  Eli wasn't just on a bad team last season.  His poor play at QB was a big part of why the Giants lost games last season.  He was a liability.  If we are talking about who was better over their career, then that is a more difficult argument to make.  I don't think there is a clear right answer to that one.  That is not to say that Eli cannot bounce back this season.  He has gone through stretches in the past where he was mediocre to slightly above average and then bounced back to play really well.  He wasn't even mediocre last season, though.  He was just flat out bad.

Brady, Rodgers, Brees are the easies and absolute locks.. the last two spots are tougher. I guess I'd have Ryan and Luck there. Wilson has a good case too.

 

Big Ben dropped off last year. Got propped up by great supporting cast. Decision-making and accuracy has declined.

 

Don't think Carr is there yet.

The amount of people leaving Brees off is what's killing me 

Brees is definitely top 5 IMO even at his older age.

I want to see how good Wilson will do when he has years where his defense isn't elite. If he still does well, he can probably be put in my top 5. But hes not there yet for me.

Without Lynch that team doesn't look near the same either. Not to dis Wilson but Lynch was the best Offensive player on both their SB teams. Wilson now has to do more and has failed 2 years in a row in the Playoffs. I would honestly be surprised if they make it back to a SB with the current core they have. Their Defense is getting a tad worse each season now too. Wilson got drafted in the perfect situation, to a team that had a Defense ready to dominate and had a RB like Lynch waiting to unleash Beastmode. If you look at both seasons the Seahawks made the SB, Wilson had some terrible games in those Playoffs but they were able to win because of their Defense and Lynch. He stunk it up vs GB in 2014 with 5 INT's and that team still won + it took a lucky SPTeams play to pull that out for Seattle. Against the Broncos in the SB, he didn't even have to do anything as their Defense won that game single handedly bullying Peyton's Offense.

oh my bad. well in that case...

 

1. Aron Rogers

2. Russell Wilson 

3. Drew Brees

4. Tom Brady

5. Andrew Luck

 

So you remove a guy from your list then insert another guy who was not on the list at #2?  LOL!

 

Here's the list...

 

1.) Tom Brady

2.) Matt Ryan

3.) Derek Carr

4.) Aaron Rodgers

5.) Big Ben

 

TB12 earned his pay in the third third of the SB.  Ryan got his team there, was the MVP, and played a pretty good first two thirds of the SB.  Derek Carr is the real deal.  Rodgers pooped his pants again in the big game.  He can throw the ball, but cannot lead a team.  Big Ben is on the list for sentimental reasons.  Time for Ben to retire, but I still love the guy.

I do think Carr beats the Texans but he would've been blown out vs the Pats in Foxboro just like Andrew was and Big Ben was. Carr has the 2nd best O.line in Football only behind Dallas IMO too. That helps when you have all day to throw. Ryan is going to get huge praise now but so did Cam last season and look at the putrid season Cam had. Ryan is inconsistent from year to year, we beat them in Atlanta with Hass at QB in 2015. I would almost bet my house on the Falcons not winning the NFC again this upcoming season. I said the same thing about the Panthers last season and they didn't even come close.

 

My thoughts exactly.  And you can throw Wilson in that category too... he has had the benefit of a good line for at least the first three years of his career.

 

A good line slows the game down and allows the QB to be able to read what is happening as it happens vs running for your life and trying to make something happen as AL has had to do.  It allows plays to develop as they were intended to so more receivers come open creating opportunity.

 

Plus there is something to be said for playing without fear, in other words with confidence that you will be protected.

1. Tom Brady

2. Big Ben

3. Aaron Rodgers

4. Cam Newton

5. Matt Ryan

 

That no.5 spot in in top contention with Luck and Brees being narrowly edged out. Luck had a great bounce back year last year, so I'm feeling great about what he might do this year.

Luck is the bizzaro Brady. The team sucks so bad and he's clearly not the problem even though he sucks in the end with his team. Brady's team is immaculate and he's clearly not the reason even though he wins in the end with his team. I'd take Luck right now over anybody but I don't have the guts to put it on a list lol! The only guy I might put above Luck is this Aaron Rodgers lookalike who has been winning big games for the Packers for the last 2 years.

The amount of Big Ben I see is surprising.  I like the guy, he's a good QB most of the time, but him, Eli, Rivers will always share the same spot imo. 

 

1 Brady...duh

2 Rodgers...duh

3 Brees....total stat padder, but still a great qb

4 Ryan...won't stay here, but just won the MVP, he's kinda gotta be here.

5 Carr...been pretty darn good for the last 2yrs

 

HM: Ben(always hurt goes 500/5 1 game then 3weeks of 180/1/2), Cam gotta stay healthy, Luck gotta stay healthy, Wilson/Stafford but I'm still not sure what those 2 are

    • Tom Brady at 38 went 12-4, 4770 yards, 36 touchdowns with 7 interceptions.   Peyton at 37 and 38 went:  13-3, 5477 yards, 50 touchdowns and 10 INT 12-4, 4727, 39 TD, 15 INT   father time catches up eventually, yes. But at 38, guys have performed at the highest level. Anything close to the numbers above will make this roster a championship caliber team. 
    • I mean... Just from personal experience: it's really, really easy to get hooked on that crap. I nearly fell into that path after my tonsillectomy... My family has a long history of addiction, so it's always in the back of my head to be extra careful.  
    • Personally, I think Dak is going to end up going the Kirk Cousins route and will end up being franchised twice before signing with another team in 2022. With the Mahomes deal, the bar was raised even higher for QB's. And even though Dak is not going to get Mahomes money he is is probably going to get between 37-40 million a year. Will the Colts be willing to pay that? I don't know, but I do believe that Dak will play this season and next under the franchise tag before moving onto greener pastures.
    • Texans traded for and gave Tunsil a 3 year extension to his rookie contract. I see them doing something similar to Watson after this year.  Thus Watson would play 5th year option in 2021 at $17.5 million, then get 3 years added at 31+ mil per season, with much (if not all) guaranteed, taking him through 2024.  This circumvents using franchise tags that would keep the UFA on the roster, but maybe sow derision as well.     Texans were improving as a group, notably toward the end of last year, and then added Tunsil.  Max Scharping at left guard and Tytus Howard at right tackle are no longer rookies. That group won't chase Watson away.     Never say never, but this more a dream then reality. Coaches that give up on franchise QB's get kicked to the curb. Even BoB knows this.
    • Also, has it ever occurred to folks that he may have played hurt last year?  He took some vicious hits against Packers and didn’t look the same afterward. You’ll never know if Rivers is injured because he’ll play through everything including a torn ACL. And he will NEVER make excuses.    With a great backup in Jacoby I hope he doesn’t feel the need to play hero.
