    Merrill Hoge (ESPN) just picked his top 5 QBs. Here they are:

    5. Aaron Rogers
    4. Michael Vick

    I know what you're thinking!

    3. Tom Brady
    2. Peyton Manning

    You'd better sit down!

    Absurd that he has Manning ahead of Brady and Ben first.

    Controversial opinions = posted to lots of messageboards = a lot of clicks = greater ad revenue.

    Its a simple formula.

    Call me surprise that Vick is even in the top 5.I am not a big san diego fan but i would have Rivers over Vick anytime.The thing thats hurting Rivers is a crappy coach:D

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    I can figure someone putting Manning above Brady. OK, I don't agree but it's reasonable. But Roethlisberger number one -- and no Brees? Come on!

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    Hahahahaha!

    I wouldn't mind if Manning was 1, with Brady 2! (while I hate Manning, I cannot deny that he is a pretty good QB!)

    But BR #1??? I would rather have Aaron Rogers, Phillip Rivers, Vick (and Im not a massive fan of him)!

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    I applaud Hoge for the allegiance he shows to an organization of which he has not been a part of for nearly twenty years.



    On a side note, if we're going to start a thread every time some member of the media says something that appears to be done solely for the purpose of stirring the pot to generate debate and controversy, then Ian may have to invest in additional server space very soon.

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    I remember him having the Steelers as the #1 team in his power rankings during week 13 of the 2007 season when the Patriots were 12-0 at that point. Of course the Patriots went on to crush the Steelers 34-13 the following week.

    Guy isn't an objective analyst at all, pretty embarrassing.

    Vick is a one trick pony..mark my words, when he gets injured, the Eagles will do better with Vince Young.

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    I applaud Hoge and the trials he has overcome in his life (Due to head trauma he had to learn to read again). But, maybe he's relapsing and needs to look at the last year of film?

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    Hoge putting a Steeler number 1 on a list is about as common as the sun rising in the east. Not surprised by that. I AM surprised that he didn't put Brees on the list because that's flat out stupid.
