THE ASSCLOWN AWARD


« Reply #15 on: May 13, 2015, 05:50:38 pm »

Hard to say, really.

I think the Seahawks are truly blessed with the best homefield advantage in the NFL, and he benefits a lot from that. 

He also benefits from his teammates doing things for him.

Watching him has reminded me of Brady.  He wins, but he gets so lucky, and to quote from somebody on this board, (I think it was Spider-Dan) it seems like other teams just roll over and hand wins to him.

It's unfair to try and compare Wilson or Tannehill to guys that have already played out their careers (Young, Marino, Etc.).  If you go by the throw all the current QB's into a new draft, I'm not sure Wilson would crack the top 10, it would be close though.  Wilson shows signs he could have a HOF career, then again he could become the next Sanchez.

OK, I'm gonna do it, for S&G...

My top 32 QB ranking, based on nothing but off-the-cuff conjecture...

1.   Aaron Rodgers
2.   Peyton Manning
3.   Drew Brees
4.   Andrew Luck
5.   Tom Brady
6.   Matt Ryan
7.   Matthew Stafford
8.   Joe Flacco
9.   Russell Wilson
10.   Cam Newton
11.   Ben Roethlisberger
12.   Nick Foles
13.   Ryan Tannehill
14.   Eli Manning
15.   Tony Romo
16.   Andy Dalton
17.   Phillip Rivers
18.   Alex Smith
19.   Matt Cassel
20.   Sam Bradford
21.   Colin Kaepernick
22.   Teddy Bridgewater
23.   Robert Griffin
24.   Josh McCown
25.   Carson Palmer
26.   Jay Cutler
27.   Brian Hoyer
28.   Marcus Mariota
29.   Geno Smith
30.   Jameis Winston
31.   Blake Bortles
32.   Derek Carr

I find that it is hard to place the rookies that are projected to be starters...

I won't be defending the choices, since they are based on nothing.

I agree that because of his size, he does have a limited ceiling.  However, he makes clutch plays when it matters.  I don't fault him for that pass in the Super Bowl as it should've never been called in the first place.

Big Ben couldn't crack the top 10?

List is so flawed. Can't put Newton ahead of Romo, Big Ben, or Rivers.  AND you damn sure can't have Foles at #11. He has done nothing in the NFL. Foles isn't even in the Top 20 (hence that's why he was traded away for virtually nothing). And having Foles ahead of a guy who won multiple super bowls (Eli ) is downright laughable on every level.

And RGIII ahead of Carson Palmer...give me a break! Dalton ahead of Rivers...please. Rivers has won playoff games, Dalton has been beyond awful and LOST every playoff game he has ever played in. Matt Ryan ahead of Joe Flacco...based on what? Flacco has shined during the playoffs and Ryan has shrunk in playoff games and been bad.

I wonder how long it took him to do that.

Given that he did that completely cold, I think he did a very good job.

I don't agree with the list either, but that isn't really the point.

I want to give a shout out to Brian for manning up and putting together a list off the cuff.  It's not perfect, but it's pretty damn good considering it's just based on his immediate gut.

LOL why would you guys criticize Brian for a list he made off cuff, and came out and said "This is list is based on nothing, just my opinion?"

Personally, I think Foles should be somewhere in the 20's, and Romo should be ranked higher.  Other than that, it's pretty spot on.

Agreed. No way in hell Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning or Drew Brees should be sniffing the top 60...

Big Ben at #11 with 2 Super Bowls and Matt Ryan and Stafford at 6 and 7? Rivers at #17 behind Tannehill, Foles, and Dalton? Please

Aside from a few head-scratchers (Foles ahead of Romo, Tanny, Rivers, etc...? Big Ben outside of top-10?), the list isn't that bad. It will obviously require a major edit once Brian sees the new Kaepernick this season<g>, but doing a full QB ranking without researching the stats is a fuzzy bitch anyway.

Typical MikeO response.  Everyone else gets it. 

MikeO does nothing but criticize regardless of the multiple disclaimers, but doesn't maybe post his own list.

Get over yourself.
