I don't think anybody is suggesting he is the best, just one of the best. The NFL now has a number of very good QBs.
The main reason I posted that poll was to show the level of envy and animosity that exists towards NFL stars even amomg the NFL players, themselves. It goes a long ways towards explaining the, sometimes, irrational biases the fans have for their favorite players.
If a guy who plays on the same field with these NFL stars can't form an objective opinion of a fellow player, how are the fans supposed to?
I can't disagree with that post.

Eli Manning made the list, as well, which is rather humorous to say the least.

Yeah, that's when you realize there is more going on than just a player evaluating another player's ability. Everybody wants to be the big dog.

A player's ability cannot always be measured by statistics alone. Eli Manning is not the best QB in the game, but when the game is on the line, he is as good as they come. It is almost as if his teammates expect him to come through.

Hwe is one of the best pure passers in the game, but he does have a mobility issue. He is not as well rounded as Aaron Rodgers who is a very good runner in addition to being a very fine passer.

I have been saying that for years. Brady is over rated. You could take any QB from any team even second strigers and put them on new england with the same results brady has had.
You sir are an incredible moron.

I understand how you feel about Meyer, but we're only half way through the season that has some tough games remaining. As far as Pryor goes, he doesn't play very often. He's 3rd string behind Palmer and Leinart. The Raiders are possibly going to change his QB position to recoup their investment from that supplemental draft. So, knowing that Tressel was good at what he does, I'm not sure yet how it has helped Terelle.
Speak of the devil, look who's starting for Oakland this Sunday:

OK...what's your take on the Seahawks/Packers? Was that a bad call? If so, was it detrimental to the outcome of the game? The ruling was simultaneous reception. Did they get it right?
Well MA, upon further review...

Brady is definitely one of the top 5 QBs in football and possibly the best pure passer today.

Another one of your Duke connections!

Colts comfortably beat the Texans 28-16, elevating the Broncos to the #1 seed in the AFC. Peyton and home-field advantage - a dangerous combination...

And on a sad note, the Lions fall to the Bears, thus ending the Giants season. I think it's time for Coughlin to go.

It wasn't Couglin's fault Manning regressed this year. Eli was overrated to begin with.

This is where all of those "overrated/underrated " conversations start. Manning only plays one position - quarterback. He doesn't play defense or special teams, and he can't throw AND catch the ball.

The Giants' problems this year have gone far beyond some errant throws by the QB:

This year's Giants started the year the exact same way they did in the SB years of '07 and '11. Through the first 8 games in all three seasons they went 6-2. They also ended the year almost identically, going 4-4, 3-5, and 3-5, which, of course, had them ending the regular season with almost identical records of 10-6, 9-7, and 9-7. During the SB years that was good enough to get into the playoffs, but not this year.

Blaming Manning for the Giants not making it to the playoffs even though he had the third highest QBR of his career despite the fact that he lost Brandon Jacobs, Mario Manningham, and a musical chairs offensive line, just doesn't make sense. Yes, he threw for less yards than last year, but this year he had fewer attempts and less INTs.

Manning had a career year last year and it's not realistic to expect him to duplicate a season like that. Since '08 he has lost some of his biggest offensive weapons, including the previously mentioned Brandon Jacobs, Mario Manningham, as well as, Plaxico Burress and Jeremy Shockey. I think it's absolutely amazing that he has been able to continue to produce year in and year out while losing his key receivers and RBs, and breaking in new ones. What's more amazing is that the offense is the second least penalized unit in the NFL. Manning must be doing SOMETHING right to keep these guys organized while he's guiding them.

Tom Coughlin has been on the hot-seat for the past six years. Had he not won a SB in '07-'08 he would have been fired. He has lost this team several times now because of his eccentric, draconian coaching and disciplinary methods, and seems to be riding the coattails of his past accomplishments more that his current coaching prowess. The Giants are not focused or prepared quite often, and have the second most penalized defense in the league.

These late season collapses seem to point to a lack of depth on offense and defense, and poor adjustments made by the coaching staff with the current set of players. Tom Coughlin may be a great position coach, but when it comes to managing and overseeing an entire organization he seems to be overwhelmed.

I, for one, would like to see a younger, more energetic, and more aggressive coach take over and guide this team before Manning's (and the Giants') SB window closes for good.

Eli made bad throws all season long. In spite of having a very good and deep wideout corps, he still didn't get the job done. He did have a few good games, but he also stunk up the place in a number of others. I some games, it seemed he couln't or wouldn't throw more than a dozen tards downfield. Coughlin has led the Giants to two Super Bowl wins in less than a decade while there are franchises out there that haven't won a single Super Bowl in the four and one half decade history of the Super Bowl.
