I’m still pretty impressed by the Texans and mainly their quarterback Matt Schaub. He’s got more passing yards and passing touchdowns than anybody else. Tom Brady is still Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger is stepping up his game offensively, Peyton Manning is still a genius, River is slinging the ball very well. With all that said, here’s my latest version of the top 25 NFL quarterbacks entering week eight.



1. Matt Schaub (Texans): 163-249, 2,074 yards, 16 TDS, 5 INTS

4. Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers): 164-233, 2,062 yards, 11 TDS, 6 INTS


5. Drew Brees (Saints): 132-197, 1,698 yards, 14 TDS, 5 INTS


6. Aaron Rodgers (Packers): 121-184, 1,702 yards, 11 TDS, 2 INTS

 

7. Brett Favre (Vikings):  157-228, 1,681 yards, 12 TDS, 3 INTS
