NFL Quarterbacks: The Best of the Best

One of these two are not in the Top 5. Can you guess which one?

One of the funnest arguments here on Bleacher is the battle over which team has the best QB.

If someone writes an article that is pro-Peyton Manning, Colts fans are there to defend it to the end, while fans of other teams are quick to point out all the things that could lead to Manning not being God's Gift to Football.

Same thing goes for Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers and all of the other starters in the league.

I have worked my fingers (computer) to the bone working on a new formula to rate the QBs in the league. No, this is not a perfect system. There are going to have to be corrections and tweaks.  Feel free to let me know what you think is fair, and if I should change the point value for a certain topic.

Point System

QB Rating - Points (If rating is a 98.4, then he gets 98 points—rounded to the nearest number.)

TDs - plus-10

Interceptions - minus-10

Completion percentage - Points

Wins - plus-7

Loses - minus-7

All teams / players will then be given a grade based on their overall average.

Grades will be as follows.

A - 4

B - 5

C - 5

D - 5

F - 4

All of these numbers are based on the players' 2010 stats. This is not an all-time list. What a player will do in 2011 has nothing to do with what has happened prior to 2010. (I know that it has nothing really to do with 2010 either, but what else is there to write about during a lockout?)

There are a total of NINE teams that receive an automatic INCOMPLETE, because they did not have a starting QB that produced enough stats to be recorded on ESPN's stat page, where I got the information for this article.

There are some on here that are gong to surprise you, because they shocked me as well.  All I ask is, please decide before going to the first slide whether you think the formula I am using is fair.

Thanks and enjoy the slide show.
