Since I did not see "the list" - I have questions:
A) Is it for predictions for the 2013 season?
B) Is it a list of 1 persons opinion and from last season?
C) Is it a list ranking QBs over their entire body of work?
Depending on the answer to these questions, that would clearly impact "the list" and where QBs are on it. Regardless, Brees and Ryan are both damn good QBs.
The thread was made in reference to the NFL Top 100, I believe.
Voting criteria is very unclear - some vote career, some vote year, some vote potential - it's a mess. Basically, what I take from it, is you rank them in an order like you would draft them, if you were drafting a team.
It is voted on solely by current NFL players.
Again, the criteria is very undefined. Some will argue that Big Ben has Superbowls, so he should be higher than RGIII, while others will say RGIII's extreme talent should put him higher.
Regardless, Brees and Ryan are both damn good QBs.
Absolutely agree, 100% - Ryan is a phenomenal QB. I recognize his greatness, I just disagree that he had the better year, or that he should be ranked higher. If I was drafting a team, I would draft Brees over Ryan.
ETA: Sorry for the wall of text, it's just very rare that I feel this right.
