NFL Player Rankings- Quarterbacks

Top 10 Quarterbacks


1. Tom Brady- knows how to win games... at the end of the day, that's what matters
2. Peyton Manning- as talented as #1, but he doesn't have as many rings, which does it for me
3. Ben Roethlisberger- toughest and most clutch QB in the game, hands down... knows how to win
4. Drew Brees- can rack up yards and make it look easy, great pure passer
5. Donovan McNabb- good leader who can spread the ball around and keep the defense guessing
6. Philip Rivers- very tough QB who can find a man in the end zone at the most important time
7. Carson Palmer- when healthy, possibly a top 5 QB... needs to re-find chemistry with his WRs
8. Aaron Rodgers- will have a great year, powerful arm that can throw downfield
9. Jay Cutler- great arm but expect a down year with Chicago... potentially a top 5 QB
10. Matt Ryan- expect a down year, but that's just a tribute to the great rookie year he had

Top 3 Busts

1. Brett Favre- more interceptions than touchdowns this year, no doubt about it
2. David Garrard- simply won't get it together at any point this season
3. Kyle Orton- does not deserve to be a starting QB in this league, in my opinion

NFL Player Rankings- Wide Receiver

Top 10 Wide Receivers

1. Andre Johnson- big, strong, fast... you can put two, three guys on him and he'll catch the ball
2. Larry Fitzgerald- great hands and a natural playmaker
3. Anquan Boldin- impossible to bring down when the ball is in his hands, very strong
4. Calvin Johnson- athletic receiver who will be one of the best in a few years
5. Randy Moss- finds ways to catch touchdown passes, tough to keep out of the end zone
6. Steve Smith- fast, finds ways to put up sick stats despite the shaky quarterback situation
7. Reggie Wayne- all around threat who benefits playing with a great quarterback
8. Brandon Marshall- off field issues put him out of the top 7, pure talent possibly top 5
9. Roddy White- will continue to get better as quarterback Matt Ryan does
10. Greg Jennings- deep threat who may be one of the best targets for a Hail Mary pass

Top 3 Sleepers

1. DeSean Jackson- has developed a nice chemistry with Donovan McNabb in just one season
2. Percy Harvin- could be a huge playmaker used in a variety of ways
3. Anthony Gonzalez- should see many more opportunities now that Marvin Harrison is gone
