Rex Grossman has a QB rating of 78.7, and his team is currently in first place in the NFC East.
Grossman is solid completing passes to receivers running short and intermediate routes—but he is inconsistent, lacks mobility and has the tendency to throw into coverage.
NFL history shows he will regress, as he has been a turnover machine. So how does he stack up against the other NFC East quarterbacks?
Romo seems to have an on/off switch in the fourth quarter, and the Cowboys will either live or die as a direct result of his play. Thus far, they’re 2-3, so they’ve done more of the latter. Dallas will go as far as Romo takes them.
As a general rule, quarterbacks who have played under center in close to 100 games in the NFL should be able to read defenses and avoid throwing into tight coverage. But Romo still hasn't learned this yet.
He's in a contract year, and this could be his last hurrah in JerryWorld.
I have this feeling that Manning has had his magical run and it's downhill from here for him during the rest of his career . He flat out doesn't win games anymore and fails to take responsibility for his miscues. The Giants should probably start looking elsewhere.
He doesn’t respond to blitzes well. He’ll throw for 300-plus yards often, but he struggles with turnovers. He’s not a clutch player that makes me feel comfortable with the football late in games, even though he did lead a comeback against an awful Arizona Cardinals team in Week 5.
Vick's aggressive style of play is dangerous for his health as well as for his team (turnovers). While the Eagles do rack up a ton of yards, Vick tries to extend the play too often and will make bad reads or throw into coverage. He and the offense have stalled on many drives this season.
There is a reason the Eagles rank No. 3 in passing yards (445) yet their record does not reflect that statistic—Vick's inconsistent play and Andy Reid's awful preparation/scheming has been why the 1-4 Eagles have not been able to cash in for the yards they have continued to gain week in and week out.
Michael Vick is still the best quarterback in the NFC East, but that hasn't translated over to the win column yet. And maybe it won't.
I believe by the end of the season, Romo may give Vick (if he is even healthy come December operating behind a terrible offensive line) a run for his money, with Grossman regressing and coming back down to earth.
