    Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    In this week's MMQB, Peter King has ranked the 32 NFL QBs...based on how he thinks they'll perform in 2007. Again, this is ONLY for 2007.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    I would move Eli Manning above Schaub, and move McNabb up, McNair down. Schaub seems to be thought of as some kind of hidden gem, but he will spend most of the time on his back in Houston.

    Also, Vince Young may be better than expected, but I think that is a little high until he gets some more experience under his belt.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    Some very interesting rankings. At first I missed the part of how the rankings were based on expected 2007 performance only. Because when I saw Kitna in the top 10 - I about fainted. King does have a point though - Kitna could have a very good year.

    Yay Miami, trading for one of the bottom qb's in the NFL... par for the course. They must be taking a page from the cubs playbook.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    Vince Young won't have that good of a year -- statisically. Last year he was the kind of guy who helped his team win but it didn't show in the stats. I don't think he's going to be a top 10 statistical QB one year later.

    Well how high do you think Culpepper or Cleo Lemon would have been ranked?

    I'll go with worse. And if they had drafted Quinn, I think he would've been ranked near the bottom as well for '07.

    However, I get Brian's point. They bring in an older QB that just has a few years left and don't do anything to help at the QB position for the future.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    It is just insane to see some of Manning's numbers from the past two seasons. 40 more TD's than interceptions? Wow!

    And for that matter, Carson Palmer has 35 in that category. The next closest to those two are Brady and Brees with 24.

    Teams don't trade very good QBs unless you have a rare situation like Atlanta, and we don't know yet if Schaub is very good.

    They did address their QB of the future as they drafted Beck in the second round. Their plan is for Green to be their QB for probably a year and then go with the young guy (who is actually like 26, I think).

    I don't see any scenario in which Miami could have acquired a QB that would be better than Trent Green for this season unless you want to argue Brady Quinn.

    If they didn't have Quinn ranked highly, then I kind of like what they did with their QB position. However, that doesn't justify drafting Ted Ginn as highly as they did, but that's a whole other discussion.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    As much as I like Vince Young, there's no way he's the seventh best QB in the league. It's way too early to be making that call. He's a media darling, helped out by the fact that he made a few exciting plays last year, but their kicker can take as much credit for the Titans wins as Vince can. That is not to say that he won't become one of the best QB's, but now? He's nowhere near top ten.

    Completely agreed. He's had an impact on his team similar to the one that Michael Vick had on the Falcons before his injury. They win with them, but their stats aren't pretty. I took it that this evaluation was based on statistics.

    Who did the Cubs trade for that is at the bottom of the league?

    If Mcnabb is healthy all year he will easily be in the top 10 this year. I agree with everyone else about Young. I think he is a good QB, but the Titans have some of the worst skill position players in the league maybe even below the Raiders. It will be hard for the Titans to move the ball at all, I don't care who the QB is on that team.

    Re: Ranking all 32 NFL QBs

    Great points on Young. King must think either Young will have great stats or will win a good number of games in '07.

    Will be interested to see his rebuttals to e-mails in tomorrow's MMQB - Tuesday Edition. He did say at the end of the article MMQB will be on vacation until July 16th. Hopefully that starts after tomorrow, because the e-mails he gets and the responses are entertaining to read. I expect the e-mails in response to today's article to be some of the best.

    If you look at Young's stats, or Vick, or even Rex Grossman, and the stats don't wow you, but the team still won, or was successful, I see that as an indication of good coaching, more than individual player talent.

    Conversely, I think it's important to remember that the supporting cast plays a huge role. There is no arguing that Peyton Manning is a stud, but there's also no arguing that he benefits from having one of best collections of offensive talent in the league around him every Sunday. Put him on the Texans, Titans or Bills, and he'd still probably put up numbers, but there's no denying that they wouldn't be as big.
