I can't argue currently, but, I think the one that MIGHT surpass him is Kaepernick. That guy is impressive, admittedly, my sample size is rather small (Superbowl mostly) but I was impressed.


My list of favorites is simple.

1 Texans
2 Texans
3 Texans
4 Texans
5 Texans
6 Texans
7 Texans
8 Texans
9 Texans
10 Texans
....................

32 Texans

Everyone else.

99 Cowboys BOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!
100 Titans (BOOOOOOOOOOO Sput! *Giving the universal symbol of disapproval*)

Personally I have no respect for the NFL anymore, but I will watch the games as long as they're entertaining. Until they take defenses completely out of the game, at least.

My list isn't evenly distributed. There is a big separation between 1 and 2. Not a very large seperation between 2 and 4, moderate gap to 5 - 14 don't have a large gap. 13-26 is a very small gap in distribution. significant jump from 26 to 27, small distribution from 27-31.

In summary, 1: favorite
2-4: teams I will always root for unless playing the Texans and I kind of keep up with and have more interest in thatn others (ranked in order of who I wold root for)
5-14: teams I like, but don't necessary keep up with
13-26: I don't care whether they win or lose
27 - 28: teams I don't like b/c they're divisional rivals
29-31: teams I don't like b/c of actual reasons (find dirty/always beat us)
32: Satan's team

Well a lot of people say the Texans play dirty too.

Personally the Ravens don't bother me much... I dont care for them but I don't hate them.

The only teams I truly hate are the Cowboys and the Titans.

The Cowboys - They are arrogant, without reason. (Not that arrogance is ever okay, but, at the very least, BACK IT UP! )

It's why when TO was there it was a perfect fit, he matched the rest of the organization.

America's Team, my bull hiney. The ONLY reason people allowed them to get away with that is simple..... the cheerleaders. Short of one beautiful Asian that used to be a cheerleader for the Chargers and My all time favorite Texans Cheerleader..... Jana. In love 

They did have some of the best, but thats not shocking, Texas women..... Shy


The Titans, my hatred of them stems from the past, their time here in Houston, the owner being a...... clown they showed absolutely no loyalty to their fan base.... not because they left but the actions that lead to their departure.... so.... the love I had for my Oilers, did a 180 and as much as I cheered for them... is how much I currently love to see them fail.

I don't blame the Cowboys for being that way at all. I think the entire reason the Cowboys are who they are right now is because of Jerry Jones.

Nope, it's been Sportscenter's Worst of the Worst play as voted on by the fans for nearly a year now lol.

In other news, Von Miller is going to get canned for 4 weeks. Interesting turn of events there.

Also, Ron Jaworski rightfully ranked Aaron Rodgers as the #1 quarterback in the NFL. I was happy to see that. Some of his other rankings were a bit screwy, though. (He legit put Joe Flacco in the top 5 quarterbacks in the NFL ahead of Drew Brees--he's on crack with that one. Flacco made it through the playoffs by throwing jump balls to Anquan Boldin. They beat Denver on a prayer that in all luck went for a touchdown.)

Anybody who says Schaub is a Top 10 QB is an idiot for doing so. I would personally rank him around 15. He puts up the numbers he does because of our receiving core.

Brady is the last QB in the league who I would want to face, because when time is running out and he needs to score, usually he does. Like, through force of will or something. It's kind of scary. Manning and Rogers and all the others can be foiled more easily.

The main reason Manning wasn't #2 on my list was that he has a tendency to make poor decisions moreso than Rodgers or Brady do. And I would put Rodgers ahead of Brady simply because
1) Rodgers is younger.
2) Rodgers has a little better arm strength and accuracy.
3) a lot more has been asked of Aaron Rodgers because of the lack of an effective running game or a great defense.
4) Rodgers is more mobile.

Also, Rodgers has proven to be pretty lethal when the game is on the line. This might turn out to be the biggest pass of his career.

This, IMO Brady is probably the best. I think CK is likely the future best, but Brady is the ONLY QB I truly feared with my Texans in the PO's. (Even before both losses to them)

I didn't see us surviving a PO game against Bill and Tom.... I watched, I cheered for my team.... But Kubiak and Schaub VS them two.... Doh! 

I don't fear Payton (I respect his ability to hurt you, I don't take him lightly, even with a comfortable lead) The only time I feared Manning is when he was playing at home in Indy. We still cant win there.


As for your list Paulie, I see it as fair, although I would rank Schaub a little bit higher (not much however) While some of the QBs above him seem better so far, they are still young and could downward spiral.... or they could improve drastically. Because of that Xfactor, I would have to put Schaub a few ticks higher (again not much, Id take Schaub over Dalton as well) because with him, you KNOW you are getting a good, but far from elite QB. He can control a game, just don't place him in a "Be a Brady/ Rodgers/ Manning" situation where he has to take the game back from a large margin often and you are good to go.

Of course I am one of the few home town crowd that still support him, I don't think the expectations placed on him are entirely fair. YES, there are better QBs, but Schaub isn't so bad you demolish the offense and bring in someone new for them to build something with, but if you put a coach in there that doesn't play from the fetal position constantly, you'd make a far bigger impact than a QB change.

Id rather see my team lose important games throwing all they have at the other team playing to WIN, not playing for a "moral victory".

It's all about stats and which players consistently have good games. You're looking for guys likely to get at least one touchdown or around 100 yards a week. Or for a QB, at least 2 TDs and/or 300 yards Smile
