    I would have the Bengals ahead of the Steelers

    The Jaguars ahead of the Broncos

    The Phins ahead of the Ravens

    And the Bills ahead of the Titans and NY

    I can agree with it, except I might put Garrard ahead of Anderson and Cutler after watching his performance against the Pats last year in the playoffs.

    He needs more experience, but I don't think it'll be long before Garrard is considered one of the top QBs in the league. What is most significant is how well he did when the pressure was greatest.

    I would have Garrard in the #5 spot. IMHO he is one QB that I would love to have as insurance for TB. Smart, great mobility, accurate, doesn't turn the ball over.

    5th or 6th. I'm not sure he is better than Rivers at this point, but he is definitely ahead of Cutler and Anderson.

    Agreed, with Gerard,the Jags will be tough this year,the Colts lock on that division title could be in jeopardy...

    I agree with you guys on Garrard. He's made me a believer in his ability. The guy can move, and throw with accuracy. He should be a couple notches higher on that list.

    I absolutely agree with everybody who would put Garrard above Cutler and Anderson. But on the "experience" front, it's worth noting that Garrard is 30 years old and has plenty more starting experience than the other two QBs, who are both just 25.

    Re: Sporting News: AFC QB rankings....

    Is there anyone more overrated in the league than Jay Cutler?

    What a bunch of scrubs besides Peyton and Brady.

    When Rottenburger and Palmer are head and shoulders above the rest of the pack...

    Sure, Garrard looked good for a while, let's see a few years of that first. Rivers has talent, but he's got a huge attitude problem. Not good for a QB.

    It's been recently noted Palmer's overrated. Let's see some performance when it counts.

    The fact that Derek Anderson is #6 on a list of anything at this point of his career tells you all you need to know about this group.

    What's the over/under on list members who won't even be starters in two years?

    I'd like to see Boller and Croyle change names to see if anyone notices.

    Kyle Croyle and Brodie Boller it is!

    I think that Carson Palmer is pretty overrated. I haven't been impressed with him in a couple of years.

    True but I've never been impressed with Cutler. At least Palmer looked like a real stud pre-injury.

    yeah that just really hit home for me, there is very little NFL level QB talent in the league right now. it's basically Brady, Manning, and Romo, with Romo being a stretch.

    I guess it's about time for another Brady v. Manning thread! :)

    Problem is you're talking about two of the best that have ever played the game, so the difference between No.2 and No.3 is so far skewed that it's a COMPLETELY unfair comparison.....too bad.
