I remember when the debate used to be between romo and Eli. Eli won. Then it used to be rivers vs Eli. Eli won. Even though public perception may rank brees a head of Eli, i think Eli has surpassed him. Some of you may feel different. What has me puzzled is (peyton, Eli, and rodgers). Now all 5 of the top QBs are so good and so close you can make the case for each of them being number 1.


On my list i would have

1.Brady
2.?
3.?
4.?
5.Brees

Where would you rank eli now?. Eli peyton and rodgers are all playing at such a high level its tough for me to rank them.

Peyton is an all time great. But as far as this year. Eli is still ahead of him. Have to see how it pans out.

Right now he is above Peyton.

Even tho big bro lead a second half come back for the ages over all Eli is on top this season

Eli is currently #3 in ESPN's QBR rating and #1 in Footballoutsiders DYAR and DVOA ratings...add in the fact that he's the defending superbowl MVP and you get best quarterback in the NFL.
1. Eli
2. Brady
3. Rogers
4. Peyton
5. Ryan

Brady, Brees, Rodgers, Eli.....not sure if Peyton would even be 5th

I'd still rather have Eli over any of them, but based on just the tangibles from a non-Giants non biased perspective, that's how I would rank them.

1a. Peyton - So impressed with how well he is doing with a new team and coming off a serious injury
1b. Eli - Would of been #1 but Peyton's performance against SD is hard to not fall in love with (Yeah I know the defense helped too but still)
3. Rodgers - Has really stepped up his play the last 3 weeks.
4. Brady - Still good of course but doesn't look as great as he used to without a top 5 Oline
5. Ryan - Has been more clutch than Brees and I've been impressed with him outside the Raiders game.

So were gonna count someone out after 5 games. I ain't no Ben fan, but when I watch him it is obvious he can hurt you when he's healthy, I gave my honest opinion of who the top 5 guys I would pick if I were starting a franchise.

Based on the last two years
Rodgers > Brady > Brees > Matt Ryan > Eli Manning

Based on their whole career thus far
Brady > Peyton > Eli > Rodgers > Big Ben

My bad, the way someone qouted you, I thought you had Ben #1....I have no problem with Ben in the top 5

Pats fans wouldn't trade Brady, Saints fans wouldn't trade Brees etc. Means little.

Every franchise with a top level quarterback thinks their guy is the best. It means nothing when trying to rank them, which is what this thread is about.
