    1. Aaron Rodgers
    2. Tom Brady
    3. Peyton Manning
    4. Drew Brees
    5. Eli Manning
    6. Ben Roethlisberger
    7. Matt Ryan
    8. Joe Flacco
    9. Matthew Stafford
    10. Cam Newton
    11. Colin Kaepernick
    12. Andrew Luck
    13. RG3
    14. Tony Romo
    15. Russell Wilson
    16. Jay Cutler
    17. Matt Schaub
    18. Philip Rivers
    19. Andy Dalton
    20. Michael Vick
    21. Carson Palmer
    22. Josh Freeman
    23. Sam Bradford


    The top 8 are who I consider the clear cut top QBs in the league right now, then from 9-13 I have a lot of the younger guys right in front of Romo. I think an argument could be made that Romo could be squeezed somewhere in that range, but at the same time those guys are just flat out more talented than Tony and I can't convince myself that I'd take him over any of those guys. 3 of them were recent #1 overall picks, another was the 2nd overall pick and the last is Kaepernick, who has as much ability as anyone in the league. They are all young and oozing talent. Even when you look at the group I have in the top 8, 6 of them were 1st Round picks and the other 2 are Brady and Brees (who was the top pick in the 2nd Round). You want big time talent at the QB position, you need to be willing to pay the price. Romo is a great story and a nice guy, but he'll never hold a candle to what those top guys have in arm talent.

    That is a pretty solid list. I can't argue with it much. Only thing I would change would be to rate Wilson a little higher and Matt Ryan a little lower but that would easily be debatable.

    If we are talking about the list of QBs I'd take for the 2013 NFL season:

    I have Romo ahead of Stafford, Cam Newton, Luck, and possibly Wilson.

    I would take Romo over Newton but not over Luck and surely not over Wilson. I'm really high on Wilson and thought he was surprisingly the best out of Colin, RG3, and Luck last year.

    Depends on which Romo you're speaking of, the guy from the first half of the season or the last half?

    The first half season Romo I'd put around 22, the second half around 8, so for the year I'd place him around 15.

    You have romo ranked that horribly? Really? The guy has one off season and he's suddenly worse than a bunch of rookies?

    Agree.

    Now, who is better, Flacco or E-Lie?

    I would personally take Colin, Wilson, RG3, and Luck over Romo right now. It's just my opinion though. Why don't you take that list I posted and make changes as you see fit. I wouldn't mind seeing where you have the QB's ranked.

    How in the world are Stafford (the hell?), Cam, Luck, and RG3 better?

    I think currently Eli is better. Eli has done what Flacco has done twice. Hard to put Flacco above Eli at this point. No telling what the future holds though.

    You missed a few more that could be in that question.

    You didn't say this was about who you'd take. Of course you'll take good rookies over Romo who only has 4-5 good years left. The title says ranking though.

    Romo is better than half of those guys in Tier 3.

    Flacco did not need a helmet catch. Anyone crediting Eli for that play is nuts.
