    Put away your red,blue and silver glasses and rank the QBs of the AFC East from 1 being best to 4 being worst

    Its all changed for me in the past month - A month ago I would have put Trent Edwards at the top of the list because of the great start the Bills had but now he goes on my list from first to worst because of failure to play well enough to beat ANY AFC East team regardless of their injuries,he has not played well.

    I think Chad Pennington is a very big reason the Dolphins have turned things around from a 1-15 team last season to a remarkable winning record thus far - Pennington is a gutsy and very smart,accurate QB as he was in NY and now doing it in Miami - Pennington is the best AFC East QB right now IMO

    My first to worst AFC East QBs at week 10 are...

    1) Chad Pennington
    2) Brett Favre
    3) Matt Cassel (getting closer to #2 though)
    4) Trent Edwards

    2 Lion Heart
    3. The High School QB
    4. The other guy.

    1.) Pennington - Right now playing the best most consistent with subpar receivers. Doesn't make a lot of mistakes, but can carry the offense when needed.
    2.) Favre - I can't remember who said it best, but the quote was Favre is good at keeping both the Jets and their opponents in games. He makes far too many critical mistakes to ranked #1. In fact, if Cassel can get a little better at getting the Pats to score TDs, I think Cassel will pass him. I think INTs outweigh a lot of positives.
    3.) Cassel - Quickly gaining ground on the other two guys up there. Needs to improve the offensive scoring, but he is close to overtaking Favre if he does.
    4.) Edwards - Wow! Talk about a stone sinking to the bottom of the ocean. I would have ranked this guy #1 a month ago. It just seems that teams have figured him out and are now rattling him.

    Your responses seem like a carbon copy of mine

    RE: Edwards, I think we can give him an excuse of sucking lately because of the fact that the OL and Lynch have done nothing to keep the heat off of Edwards back and opposing defenses are salivating every week at ruining Trent's day

    Not only is QB rating a worthless stat, it also includes all of the other stats you posted. It shouldn't be used with them. If you are going to use it (I would suggest you don't) it should be used instead of the other stats you posted.

    +1

    Favre: Top ranked for dumb luck.

    Pennington: Top ranked for vengeance play under an infinitely superior coach.

    Trent Edwards: Top ranked for worst bounce-back from a concussion.

    Cassel: Top ranked for prepping to kick Favre in his wrinkly old nutsack.

    I'm really tired of the "high school QB" moniker attached to Cassell-- that's a load of crap. He went to USC. He decided to stay and sat behind two Heisman trophy winners.

    If he had gone to 100 other colleges, some of them very good football schools but without the huge depth of talent you see in a top 10 school, he would have likely been a solid starter for years.

    If he had gone to a Cal, Utah, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Illinois, Pitt, North Carolina, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, Louisville, Colorado, etc. etc. he would have played a lot and likely shown the abilities he showed in the workouts that got him drafted.

    The scouts will find you if you hae talent, whether you are Flacco at Delaware or the backup at USC or Florida. Maybe the backup at USC or Florida would have beaten everyone else out for the job at Delaware. Maybe they would have beaten out the starters at UCLA or Florida State, for that matter.

    The credibility of QB rating aside, it still deserves to be included. It uses all the stats in the first four rankings but applies a formula in a way which attempts to balance the factors. Also importantly, it also takes into account the number of attempts, which the previous four rankings do not.

    So you can debate the formula used (and many have) but when looking at the raw stats, doesn't everyone implicitly apply their own mentally-calculated formula as to the the relative importance of the stats?

    A much bigger issue with using statistical rankings to rank these QBs:

    3 of the 4 QBs became their team's starter for the first time in either August or September. So Cassel/Favre/Pennington have all had to make major adjustments and all three have been "works in progress" much of this season. So looking at aggregate stats means less this year than it normally would.
