    Agree - NO

    When Ben is on he is on and IMO is one of the best, but it's those off games that make you wonder....

    Well the ones ahead of him are pretty dang good and even IMO so you the list can go as, 1a, 1b, 1c and so on.
    As for Salisbury, a career back-up with less than average qb skills..........who gives a ***k on what he thinks.

    Nice to see that Brady is not on the list.

    How the hell do they have Aaron Rodgers ahead of Big Ben....Dude is still a big ?. Big Ben already has a SB ring and has been to the Pro-Bowl. Not saying Rodgers isn't gonna be any good..but to be put ahead of Ben is craziness.

    "He's running around there, running his mouth, doing all that, but if you watch him on film and really look, where was Ray Lewis? He was nowhere to be found. I could have tackled the water boy and had as many tackles as him. He didn't do nothing today. He's all mouth. When you talk like that, that's what happens: You get hit in the mouth. He's over there crying now, thinking about what went wrong. You got your *** whipped, that's what." ~ Peazy

    Is this list based on how well they are playing now, or is this a list of who he thinks the best in the league is starting with Mcnabb?

    It must be how they are playing now, and if so, I cant argue. Ben has not thrown that many passes this year. But when you talk about the best in the league I wouldn't put any one of those guys ahead of Ben that are sitting there in front of him now. Mcnabb showed his salt in that Superbowl, and he's always hurt so there is no way I want that guy on my team. He lacks the mental toughness that comes with the QB position. A lot of you might not agree with me, but thats how I see Mcnabb. Duribilty is part of what makes players great. Do you think Emmitt Smith would have been where is is today without that? Dont get me started on Romo. Dude could be the most over-rated player in the game. I do like Cutler though. I think him and Ben are the future of this league

    I think he's ranking the QB's on their performance thus far this season. Seriously, Ben hasn't done a whole lot in the first three game so frankly I am surprised he is ranked so high right now. Looking at potential though Ben should be higher, but IMO based on stats right now and what these guys have done at the QB spot he might be a little high...

    Anyone who says Ben Roethlisberger is anywhere below the top 3 active QBs right now is an idiot.

    Looking at Bens intangibles and potential he definitely near or in the Top 3 for active QB's but looking at what he has done this year so far I don't think he is Top 3 right now. He's managed games and has done what has needed to be done to win the games they have won.

    Cant argue with that. We know, and so does everyone else that Ben is top of the heep, but you are only as good as your last game. Unless your Brett Farve you need to be good week in and out. No one is going to say Ben is playing bad because of a crappy OL.
