    1. Russell Wilson
    2. Joe Flacco
    3. Matt Ryan
    4. Kaepernick
    5. RG3

    Pains me to put Flacco that high, but he is 7-4 in the playoffs and his career record as a starter is 54-26 (.675).

    Hard to put guys like Kaepernick, Wilson, and RG3 in there so early in their careers, but if you were starting a team and you had an option between these three guys and chumps like Romo, Rivers, Schaub, and Cutler... well, you're going to take Kap, Wilson, and RG3 over them in a heartbeat.

    Seahawks are my #2 team now. I have never been more bummed to see a team other than the Titans lose than when they lost to the Falcons. I was cheering as if they were the Titans that day.

    Gonna be nice to actually have another team to care about while we are gulping D the next couple years.

    I know you did not just put Stafford, Rivers, and Bradford in the second tier QB list.

    Put Locker on the 9ers and I bet he'd probably do pretty good too. They are legitimately the best team in the league and with Brady on the team would be unstoppable.

    IMO no one should be putting RG3 on top of this list, sure he's a really good player, but as a passer he still shows room for growth.

    I'd never put anything past RG3 but at the moment he's only slightly better than say Tony Romo and Cam Newton, he's not yet IMO (as a passer) on Matt Ryans level.

    Maybe I'm just stubborn Or Ignorant But I will always have a hard time putting a rookie or a first year starter who hasn't really proved his first starting wasn't any thing more than a fluke on a top - anything list.
    Bradford and Stafford haven't proven besides that they are serviceable Q.B.'s not really elite but with a good team around them they can make a playoff run.
    I like what I see from Wilson, Griffin, and Luck but they are still not top 5 anything.

    But Wilson, Kaepernick, and RG3 have all been better than Bradford and Stafford (in both passer rating and win percentage). So it's really not a hard call to make IMO.

    Only QB's I would say are elite would be Brady, Rodgers, Brees, P Manning, and Roethlisberger.

    They do have better passer rating but that is a BS number in the first place and wining % says more about the team than anything else put any of those 3 on the Rams or lions and they would most likely have the same winning % as Sam & Mathew
