    Here is the list of 32 quarterbacks ranking.

    Vick should be lower, like lower teens. Pennington should be at least 11 or 12.

    Putting Michael Vick in the top 10 is like putting Rosie O'Donnell in your Swimsuit Issue. It's ludicrous! He's not even the best quarteback on his team. He may be the best athlete, but but there will be no Lombardi in Atlanta as long as he's leading hte team, or raising dgs for that matter.

    No offense meant to pieces of ****, but Rex Grossman is a piece of ****. How he isn't 32 I have no idea. Did whoever vote not watch the Super Bowl?

    This guy has a mock draft that has the Broncos drafting lower than the Chargers. He's picking Denver over us to win the division. Why isn't a guy that delusional working in the White House?

    With real WRs (VJ, Davis, floyd), a year under Norv's teaching and added experience, he will be top 3 by thsi time next year

    Where did this jerk get his education?

    LT has a better Quarterback Rating then Vick, and I would take LT over Vick any day, wait a minute we all ready did!

    Oh Nr. 5 is a great place to be. Philip has 4 steps to go
    forward but is high enough to have the opponent's defence
    stay careful. a good start for a balanced offence.

    Rivers obviously has more upside than Bree's and Palmer. River's was still in his first year, his receivers were rookies, bad, or double teamed (I didnt know teams double teamed a TE but they did in a lot of Charger games) Hell when McCardell started playing horribly they put their worst CB and that was the end of McCardell and VJ (who couldn't take a #1 CB at the time). Basically that left a double teamed Gates and a double teamed LT in the backfield and Rivers still managed to do it.

    Palmer has a few more years and a great receiving core. Bree's had a few more years and had a very good receiving core. It might be scary to see Rivers with Norv Turner (who has proven that he is one of the best QB coaches in the league), another year under his belt, and a better receiving core.

    BTW again going to Mini-camp, Whitehurst and Volek are probably better, with a little more experience, than the bottom 10 QBs in the league, or at least comparable. However when they went against our defense they didn't do very well (I give credit to our defense over them playing poorly) However Rivers was LEAGUES ahead of them. It was almost a surprise to see how much faster the balls were let loose and the better aim.

    Being a Giants fan, I have to wonder how Eli got into the top 32?

    Still questionable. Seems Brees did pretty well last season, with less offensive firepower. That said, I am liking what I am seeing from Rivers A LOT!

    This morning on "Cold Pizza, the UT's Trotter said Rivers thot he came off his primary receiver too quickly down the stretch and wanted to correct that; also, that he wanted to complete 70% of his passes, which would be a 10% increase over last year!!
