For the last few months I have been ranking the decades best at each position.
I have saved the biggest position for last, quarterbacks.
This ranking is for how they did from 2000 through last season.
For RBs and WRs I had chose to use the 1999 post season in my stats, since it actually happened in 2000, but that caused a stir so I have decided to exclude that from the QB rankings, but I will give Kurt Warner and Steve McNair a little asterisk for their heroics in that January and February.
I have taken into account all meaningful stats, along with wins and losses and post season performance, but none of these things on their own will boost a player to the top, and since it is an "All-Decade" ranking time served will count towards your contribution for the time period.
The Top 5 alone represent 11 of the 20 Super Bowl starts and eight of the 10 All-Pro selections for the decade.
There were two players who didn't qualify because of the 64 starts I have required at every position, they are Rich Gannon and Tony Romo. This is the only reason they were left off the list, and I seriously considered adding Gannon, but I made the rule so I have to stick to it.
The guys who just missed the list include Brad Johnson, Carson Palmer, Jake Plummer, and Chad Pennington.
I will sum up all the rankings up and include my special teams selections next week in my All-Decade team.
So without further ado, here are my top 15 QBs for the decade that was.
