Romo isn't terrible, but he hasn't done jack in the post season. Ben, Eli, Peyton, Brees, Rodgers, and Brady are all SB winning QBs. Are Romo's numbers any better than Rivers' (other than last year Rivers)? They are both guys that get to tread water at the bottom of the top 10 until they do something in the post season.
Huh? Roethlisberger's lifetime QB rating among active QBs is 8th. http://www.pro-football-reference.com/l ... active.htm
If you go solely by counting stats, then his numbers are not going to rival the Bradys or Mannings of the world, but the idea that he's "barely" a top 10 QB is silly IMO.
More importantly, YPA is widely regarded as the single most important passing statistic for QBs. It correlates most closely with actual performance and passing quality better than any other statistic (see, eg, http://www.coldhardfootballfacts.com/co ... empt/5924/
):http://www.pro-football-reference.com/l ... active.htm
Ben is 3rd in YPA amongst active QBs.
Anyways, looking at the total picture (production, contribution to team success, personal opinion) my list would be:
4. P. Manning
6. E. Manning
