RE: Brooks Poll
Same old Brooks, looks great for a while and then he goes and does something do you fumble the ball inside the red zone.

RE: Brooks Poll
Wow! The first 8 votes were either mediocre or negative. I'm waiting for the supporters to even this poll out...if indeed there are enough supporters.

Lets wait and see.

RE: Brooks Poll
Well, I am a Brooks support, but even I'm not delusional enough to call him a Pro-Bowler. McNabb, Vick, and Culpepper easily come before him in NFC quarterbacks. Top 10? Probably not. Maybe, mid to low teens. I'd actually have to do a little research before I can spout off the top ten quartbacks in the league. What I will say, however, is that he is the best quarterback we've ever had (sorry old schoolers, I know I was yeh high in his hey-day, so I can't have much of an opinion, but I'm not an Archie believer). And they're no non-starting quaterback that we should even be mildly entertaining replacing him with.

For the record.
In the entire NFL Brooks is;

#19 in passer rating
#12 in touchdowns
#9 in passing yards

In the NFC our Brooks is;

#9 in passer rating
#6 in touchdowns and
#6 in passing yards

These are the NFL stats, make of them what you will. We tend to blame our qb for the failures of the entire team, not fair. Sure he has made some goofy plays but he is not the only one.

RE: For the record.
19th in PASSER RATING. He's worse than 20th in Completion Percentage. There is MUCH more to being an NFL QB than yards and TDs. AB's EFFICIENCY numbers tell that story. He's below average in the league at doing the things you have to do to be an effective NFL QB.


McNabb, Vick, and Culpepper easily come before him in NFC quarterbacks.
McNabb and Culpepper definitely. Vick is a huge playmaker and his impact on the field can't be denied. That said, he isn't a great QUARTERBACK, IMO. If you're looking at the whole NFC, I'd say the following QBs are AT LEAST AS GOOD AS Brooks:

Delhomme, Griese, Bulger, Hassleback, Favre, Culpepper, McNabb.

You are correct if you are looking at Passer Rating alone which obviously you are because that is the only category that Griese #3, Buldger #4, Hasselbeck #8 that come ahead of Brooks and he is #9. However, In TDs he's ahead of Bulger Griese and Vick. In yards he is ahead of Hasselbec Griese Vick, just to name a few. you were talking about the NFC, right?
