I think Manning is starting to come into his own; last year he was very average during the season but the game plan the Giants had in the playoffs definitely set him up nicely to help lead his team to the eventual SB win. I'll be interested to watch him this year and see if he actually steps up his game. I wouldn't want anyone else other than Ben to lead the team.
The whole topic of where does Ben rank is basically just a pissing contest.
Honestly, I could care less if Ben is 2nd or 22nd .... as long as our team makes it to the dance.

2.Brady (spygate or not dude is a beast)
Manning- Smart, he runs the whole show and does it better than anyone. I believe Manning could put up similar numbers ALMOST anywhere (on any team) He calls his own offense. He's accurate short,long and intermediate. He has the hardware (rings, MVPs, probowls, Records)
Brady- I put him at second because i believe he is in a system that any of my top 5 would excel in. You put brady as the steelers qb last year and there is no way he puts up Bens '07 numbers. But he has Manning like physical skills and played quite a few seasons with **** poor WRs.
Ben- Short of a young/healthy McNabb, i dont think any qb in the league now would do as well as Ben did last yearbehind our oline. WHich is a testiment to how talented he really is. He is 2 good OL away from greatness!
McNabb- 3 straight conference championships with NO ONE at WR (until the 1 season w/ T.O.) says it all to me. Still IMO the best deep ball thrower in the NFC maybe NFL. Mobile,strong,smart... the only problem i have with him is his durability
Brees- Most accurate QB in the league when he is given time. He makes average WRs look like probowlers. He can make any throw on the field with pin point accuracy and does it all at a whopping 5'10 or so!!!
Ben is paid proportionate to his abilities. I'm willing to live with him being the 15th best since he is the 15th highest paid. My belief is that we will get our money's worth from him.
I really dont think McNabb is Top-5 anymore. Yeah, he is still pretty good but not the best. Real big durability concerns, he has always had erratic accuracy, yeah his WR's would likely be 4th or 5th guys on some teams and give him MAJOR props for that. I just think he isn't as good as he once was.
i think ben has to be at the top of the list as far as the best quarterbacks in the league goes. top five for sure.
