    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

    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!

    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)!

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    No he isn't....No one breaks down film on line blocking and running plays better than Hoge.He's way too steeler-centric,but he's less shrill and more enthusiastic about football,than any other of the so-called experts on ESPN.....he and jaws are terrific on NFL match-up(which should be an hour long,imo).:rocker:

    He's a Steeler which means he probably thinks Brady cheated them out of 2 Superbowls. He's far too biased towards one team to be a national analyst, in my opinion, but it is what it is.

    What the hell??? Tom Brady was voted number 1 of all the players by the players and he is ranked number 3??? Big Ben is nowhere as good as Brady.

    The Rankings are laughable.:D

    Even more laughable is anyone who gets worked up over them and "can't believe" this or that.

    I'm sure he has Bradshaw #1 on his overall list.

    I like your list but I could see putting Rothlesberger over Rivers getting to 3 SB's and winning 2 is nothing to sneeze at.

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    I agree you can make the case for Roethlisberger over Rivers at 5. My theory works around the fact that if you put R-Burger on a team without the Steelers D, he'd be in a world of hurt. Rivers despite his ****ty throwing action, would be a top 5 QB on any team IMO.

    Re: TOP 5 QBs

    Aaron Rodgers is number one because he won the Superbowl? I think not.
    While he may definitely be in the top 5 he is not number one.

    REMEMBER THESE ARE ALL IN MY OPINION

    Tom Brady - Joe Montana of this era, mirror image that will surpass Old Joe
    Peyton Manning - Dan Marino of this era, will perhaps pass him as well
    Aaron Rodgers - Brett Favre of this era, but will not pass him lol
    Ben Roethlisberger - Trying his best to outdo Terry Bradshaw both have rings
    Phillip Rivers - Even after LT left, he quietly led the league in many passing categories for few years now.

    I'd say Manning is more Favre-esq than Rodgers.
