    It didn't help Cinci's defense that up and coming Odell Thurman had/has drug problems, and 1st round pick David Pollack broke his neck.

    We keep referencing Palmer's lack of post-season wins...even though the only chance he got, he was knocked out of the game on the second play.

    All in all I think he is good, but Ben is better. Like Jom said, no need to tear down Palmer just to validate Ben. His numbers speak for themselves.

    with most of what you said. Carson and Ben are two different types of QBs. Both of whom play the position extremely well. I think Carson is the better pure passer and Ben is the better playmaker. All told I think they are on the same level. The Steelers would still be a winning team with Carson at the helm and the bengals would still be losers with Ben at the helm.

    Brady and Manning - if you can't at least see an argument for those guys being higher rated, ditch the B&G colored glasses.

    Basically, IMO, the question is Palmer or Ben... and while I wouldn't rate Palmer higher, I could see the case... he's had 4000+ yards and 25+ TDs each of the last 2 years... in fact, he had 32 TDs the year before. I could see the argument.

    Just be glad that he's not behind guys like Romo, Bulger and Hasselbeck that have more gaudy stats. I'm satisfied with a "top 5" ranking... It says he's among the elite and no longer a game manager.
    I understand your points, but to me it's about more than just stats.
    It absolutely is more about just stats... My point is, I can see the arguments. It's not like names are being yanked outta left field.

    The truth is that while they may not be the ONLY determining factor, stats matter. Otherwise, Marino doesn't belong on the top QB of all time list.

    How accurate is Carson's Ball in the crucial periods of the game?

    they all throw pics at various points in the game and Ben isn't immune.

    I think steelblood is so spot on there....

    I don't care whether he's a passer, a runner, too short or if it's an ugly throwing motion... if he's a winner, that's the guy I want.

    Personally, I take the best winner... period.

    An interesting statement about Brees. He was 440/652 (67.5%) for 4,423 yards with 28 TDs, 18 INTs and an 89.4 passer rating. About the only thing that wasn't very good was his ypa which was a pedestrian 6.8. He had career highs in attempts, completions, completion percentage, yardage and TDs. Without Duece to provide a running game Brees was about all the New Orleans offense had. I'm not sure why you think he had a down year.

    Week 1 Saints Lose to Colts
    Our inability to convert third downs and keep the ball hurt us," said sean Payton. (Brees also had 2 interceptions)

    Manning = 9.6 Yards per attempt
    Brees = 4.7 Yards Per Attempt

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    week 2 Saints LOSe to Bucs

    The Saints had some success moving the ball on the ground early."I think we have the ability to be a very good offense. One of the best, if not the best, in the league. Unfortunately we're not playing like it right now," said Drew Brees.

    Box score

    Saints 0 , 0 , 7, 7, (Zero 1st half points by the offense)

    Brees 1 interception

    Jeff Garcia = 15.2 Yards per attempt
    Drew Brees = 5.3 Yards per attempt
    --------------------------------------------------------

    Week 3 Saints Lose to Titans

    Drew Brees who had another miserable game, he had five turnovers. Brees now has just 1 TD pass versus 7 Interceptions on the season.

    Vince Young = 7.2 Yards per Attempt
    Drew Brees = 4.7 Yards per Attempt

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    WEEK 4 BYE
    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    Week 5 Saints lose to Panthers

    If we continue to make the dumb mistakes, then it's hard for the result to change," said Saints coach Sean Payton. In a tightly contested affair, the Saints only could muster 6 first half points. They also failed to score in the 4th Quarter.

    David Carr = 7.8 Yards per Attempt
    Drew Brees = 5.4 Yards per attempt (2 more interceptions)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Saints Begin season 0-4 , effectively Ending their Season.
