Top Five NFL Quarterbacks

Eli Manning led the New York Giants to the 2008 Super Bowl.

Which Tom Brady out for the season, begs the question, who is the best quarterback in the NFL? Kidzworld ranks the five best QBs!

#5. David Garrard

David Garrard of the Jacksonville Jaguars might be a surprising choice for some. Many people would probably expext Drew Brees, Matt Hasselbeck or Ben Roethlisberger holding down this fifth spot, but David has opened some eyes lately. Last season Garrard threw for 18 TDs and 2,509 yards with only three interceptions. He led the Jags to the AFC Wild Card Game where he made the play of the game by running for 32 yards in the closing minute - which set up a game winning field goal. Garrard is expected to have another big year that will put himself in the class of the elite quarterbacks!

#4. Carson Palmer

Carson Palmer was Mr. Everything when he starred at USC. He broke several records and was the 2002 Heisman Trophy winner. Though his pro career with the Cincinnati Bengals started off slow, he has developed into a great NFL quarterback. His pin point passing and leadership on the field has made him a two-time Pro Bowl selection. Last season, he set franchise records with his 376 completions and 4,131 passing yards. But his career-high 20 interceptions and losing record marred his other successes. Carson needs to bring the Bengals to playoff contention before he can move up our list!

#3. Tony Romo

Considering he is one of the best quarterbacks in the game today, it is hard to believe that Tony Romo of the Dallas Cowboys went undrafted in 2003. He has great poise and is mobile enough that he can play in both the pocket and on the move. Tony threw for an amazing 36 touchdowns last season before the fell to the eventual Super Bowl champs, the New York Giants in the Divisional playoff game. This season, the talented tandem of Romo and Terrell Owens, aka T.O., will look to get over the hump and win the Super Bowl. Romo is also a two-time Pro Bowl quarterback and holds several Cowboys’ records. Oh yeah, he is also dating Jessica Simpson!

#2. Eli Manning

For years Eli Manning has been in his brother Peyton’s shadow. But after leading the New York Giants to the Super Bowl last season, Eli proved he can stand on his own two feet. Eli possesses excellent poise and confidence when the pressure is on. His stats have been average and last season he almost had as many interceptions as he did touchdowns. But Eli proved that when the lights are on he can deliver. This season is huge for the younger Manning as he will try to prove he is not a fluke but rather a Pro Bowl quarterback.

#1. Peyton Manning

Honestly this top spot should belong to Tom Brady, who is not only best QB in the game but arguably of all time. But since Mr. Brady is out for the year due to a knee injury, you have to give this spot to Peyton Manning. For the past half-decade, Peyton has consistently showed why he is one of the most efficient quarterbacks. He is one of the smartest QBs in history and he is a proven winner. Many people think Peyton might be on his decline, but don’t count out this future Hall of Fame player yet. Our bet is he will throw up big numbers and have the Indianapolis Colts in the hunt come playoff time!

    Pats. The only way they would lose would be due to the deflated balls as an illegitimate way of getting to the Super Bowl. They wouldn't deserve to win in the eyes of some people. Maybe even the NFL. Besides that, the Patriots will take this win.  And lets be honest, nobody wants to see the Seahawks win two years in a row except for the fans that became fans once they saw that they were good. (Yes the shots have been fired.)
