Ranking NFL starting quarterbacks as per John Clayton - Brees third

THE ELITE
1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts

Analysis: At 34, Manning doesn't show any signs of slowing. He sets the agenda for modern NFL quarterbacks with the no-huddle and three-receiver offenses and generates 12-win seasons as easily as he completes passes. Under Manning, the Colts have won 12 or more games for seven consecutive seasons.
Arrow is pointing: Up

2. Tom Brady, New England Patriots

Analysis: I resisted the urge to put Drew Brees ahead of him, but Brady, with three Super Bowl rings, is still the master. The knee injury slowed him a little in 2009 (4,398 yards, 28 TD passes), but I expect his numbers to be much better this season.
Arrow is pointing: Flat

3. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

Analysis: The combination of Brees and Sean Payton is scary. Brees is a master at finding the open receiver, and Payton is one of the best playcallers in the business.
Arrow is pointing: Up

4. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

Analysis: With two Super Bowl rings, Roethlisberger ranks with the elite of the elite quarterbacks in the league. His suspension is a wakeup call, but as a quarterback, he's almost impossible to stop when he rolls out of the pocket and when the game is on the line in the fourth quarter.
Arrow is pointing: Flat

5. Brett Favre, Minnesota Vikings

Analysis: It's amazing to think Favre had his best season at age 40. Even though he says this is his final year, Favre loves the game and can still play it at a high level.
Arrow is pointing: Slightly down

From Peyton Manning to Jake Delhomme, ESPN's John Clayton ranks the NFL's starting QBs - ESPN

Said Pope Benedict: "WOW ... that ring is bigger than mine!!!"

what a bogus list.

brees set the completion % record, won a super bowl and led his team like a fearless general.

bogus list, the end.

At the current stages in their careers, I would agree with the top 3 on this list. I'm a Saints fan, so of course I would love to see Brees at the top of every list there is, but Manning is a stat beast, and Brady has 3 rings, compared to Brees' one. This list is not that bad really. The top 3 anyway.

He's trying to base it off of accolades over a career and mix in the the present day climate. If it's on accolades the list is dead on but right now Brees is the top QB. Everyone knows he was the MVP of the leauge and obviously the SB last season, he doesn't have any nagging injuries, and his receivers overall are better than what any QB has at his disposal.
