Re: Best QB in the Past 5 Years?

If this is going back to 07:
2. Manning (Peyton)
I'm not going to knock a QB cause he has an idiot coach (Turner). Rivers played good enough to beat any opponent during this stretch.
Rodgers didn't start in 07, but he's on the rise. Ask this question in 5 years, Rodgers will be number 1.
Brees is one of the more accurate QBs we've seen and has led one of the most explosive offenses the past 5 years. Yeah, he's helped by a dome and a great play caller, but there's no denying how good Brees has been.
Peyton Manning may have missed all of last season, but he and Brady were both 1 and 1a not just the past 5 years, but past decade.
Brady had great numbers, and have led 2 Super Bowl teams. Look at both Super Bowl teams and you see two completely different offenses. He's one of two guys not to win the Super Bowl on this list, but in terms of play, he deserves to be number 1.
Off the list: Roethlisberger...He's not pretty, but he gets the job done. I consider him an elite QB, but I cant see him leading a team the way the guys i have on the list can.
Eli, he's a top 5 QB now. His playoff play and regular season this season speaks for itself. But you look at the way he's played, as a whole, these past 5 seasons, and the only word that comes to mind for me is inconsistent. He was phenomenal this year, and I think in future seasons, but he's not a top 5 for me this past decade
