A Tale of Three Quarterbacks, Part Two

Hello again, fellow football enthusiasts.

When last we met, we discussed the paths taken by three of today's premier quarterbacks: Ben Roethlisberger, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady. We discussed their successes and their struggles, and followed them through high school and college on their path to the pros.

I know I'm early; when i said "tomorrow" in the last article, it was prior to midnight.

Today I would like to dissect the NFL careers of Roethlisberger, Manning, and Brady—pick apart some performances, and look at both the tangible and intangible assets of each which have enabled them to separate themselves from the rest of the pack. We'll start with the draft, move to early years, talk about championships, and sum it all up at the end for each one..

I would like to say that by the end, we could put to bed which of these three can lay claim to Top Dog (I'm sill punning here...last time it was "Best in Show"...get it? No? Oh well...) in the competition for Best NFL Quarterback.

But that would be dishonest of me; I really am just trying to stir up trouble.

So, with that said, let's begin with some general info on each, then break down their stats (yes, I said stats; like them or not, they are relevant).

In the interest of fairness, Big Ben will be compared to the other two based on their first five years in the game. He's the baby of the group, so he hasn't had the time to compile the career numbers of Manning and Brady...yet.

Here we go!
