A look at QB ranking, Pryor, supplemental draft

Two days ago Eli Manning went on Michael Kay's radio show in New York and made the case for himself as an elite quarterback, a "top five" quarterback. He further said, "I don't consider myself a 25-interception quarterback."

Look, everyone has a right to their opinion, but facts are a wonderful things. And the facts say last season Eli Manning threw 25 interceptions. (Note to Eli Manning: That makes you a 25-interception quarterback).

I may say I'm not a chubby dude, but the scale says I'm a chubby dude. Facts. Get it?

At any rate, as the quarterback topic is something of a big topic in South Florida, I decided to see exactly who are the top five NFL quarterbacks. And the top 10. And the next five in the middling 15. And then the next below average 15. And, of course, the most terrible two at the back of the line.

My quarterback ranking 1-32? It's purely my opinion. It isn't necessarily based on statistics from a year ago alone. It is, once again, my opinion.

Lessgo!

1. Tom Brady.

2. Phillip Rivers.

3. Peyton Manning.

4. Aaron Rodgers.

5. Drew Brees. (Hurts, doesn't it?)

6. Michael Vick. (Dolphins once signed Marcus but looked away from Michael two years ago).

7. Ben Roethlisberger.

8. Josh Freeman (Superstar in the making).

9. Matt Ryan.

10. Tony Romo.

11. Eli Manning (You're not top 5, brother).

12. Matt Schaub.

13. Joe Flacco.

14. Jay Cutler.

15. Matt Cassel.

16. David Garrard. (Can the Dolphins trade for him?).

17. Matt Stafford (When healthy which is none too often).

18. Kyle Orton (The Dolphins tried to trade for him).

19. Carson Palmer (Would be ranked much higher if he was, you know, playing this year).

20. Sam Bradford (He'll be much higher by next season).

21. Matt Hasselbeck.  (Much, much higher when healthy).

22. Donovan McNabb.

23. Ryan Fitzpatrick (Sounds crazy but check the tape).

24. Mark Sanchez (Hurts).

25. Vince Young (Would be higher if he could keep his head together).

26. Alex Smith.

27. Jon Kitna.

28. Jason Campbell.

29. Chad Henne.

30. Tarvaris Jackson.

Tie, 31. Derek Anderson.

Tie, 31. Jake Del Homme

33. Jimmy Clausen. 

Obviously, Dolphins quarterback Chad Henne -- the starter for "right now" in Tony Sparano's words -- is not very high on my list. How could he be based on his last two seasons?

Remember Henne's resume in those two years speaks whispers for itself: More INTs than TDs both seasons starting. Under .500 both seasons. Both seasons out of the playoffs. Benched twice last season.

And that leads me to some questions:

Am I blind to put Henne so far down the line? What am I not seeing? What do the Dolphins see that I and, I suspect, many of you don't? If the Dolphins don't see any better than we do, how could they possibly come out of the past two seasons and enter this training camp without even legitimate competition for Henne in the current training camp? Can Henne completely change his stripes and become a good quarterback this year?

Can the Dolphins still find another option at quarterback?

On that last question, you should know the NFL has set its supplemental draft for Monday. Terelle Pryor has been made eligible for that draft. The Dolphins are expected to be represented at Saturday's workout Pryor will put on for teams in the Pittsburgh area.

Will they use a late-round pick on Pryor?

Frankly, Pryor is a long, long, long range project. He proved in college he is coachable because he improved as a player at Ohio State. But he wasn't necessarily good. He couldn't lead his team to a conference title. His arm strength is average at best and accuracy is inconsistent.

Is he worth a seventh-round pick? Maybe.

In my opinion, North Carolina 3-4 OLB Michael McAdoo, Western Carolina's Torez Jones, and Lindenwood's 314-pound DE Keenan Mace, are better prospects than Pryor. Defensive back Tracy Wilson is also in the supplemental draft.

Finny, Your right, think were would be if Tuna went to Atlanta...,I was All for tuna back in08, My friends up here(NYC) always said " Watch for what you wish for"., Again that phrase bit me on the back side.

LOL @ Newcomer.....

Newcomer-

Opinions vary, the jury's still out. IF he gets it together with a better supporting cast and a new offense, new OC, he has the physical tools to be really good.

Most people question his "between the ears" tools. He hasn't shown that "IT" factor that the best QB's all seem to have. Has that deer in the headlights look.

No one knows for sure, but he's not likely to ever be a championship quality QB. He was a 2nd Rd pick - you get what you pay for.

Nominating "Fist Pump 4 Field Goals" as the best name on this blog.

Fist Pump-
I was all for Tuna, but then I also thought my first marriage would last forever...DUH!

Armando is the Henne of the blog/beat writing world

RexRyan's Bowel Movement

I WILL BET YOUR FAMILY IS PROUD OF YOUR BLOG NAME. WILL YOU TEACH THIS TO YOUR CHILDREN?

Thank You Rex,Your excremant has kept us hating Gang green for years..BTW, Love your Moniker too>>

I'm sure all the Atlanta fans who were disappointed back then are doing cartwheels at how it played out.

Social worker: What is the point you are exactly making? Let me guess, since you are a social worker I am betting you are one of the Obama minions/Liberal dimwits who actually believe you are intellectualy superior to the rest of the world. Meanwhile, your fearless leader continues to screw everything up he touches. Do everyone a favor, take your holier-than-now moral high ground and stick it where I emerge from. As for my kids, they will be fine. Now go save someone sucking my tax dollars who is on welfare and has no desire to do anything productive for the rest of their life other than hang out on their porch and drink forty ouncers from a brown bag.

Rex'sShitFace

I see you are one of the many ignorant fools in society who believes that we have a two party system. Anyone for or against Republicans or Democrats are grossly misinformed. None of them have your interests in mind and all their actions confirm that. They do whats best for the Big Businesses that put them there. This is why Congress, Dems and Repubs together, approve laws that give tax breaks to companies that offshore work while unemployment is extremely high. I can give you a hundred more examples but you are obviously so ignorant and close minded you will go on tooting your parties horn.

I suggest you make your bowel movements a little more useful and try reading up on whats going on instead of relying on the media news outlets.

I just ran into a little girl named PattyPeePee, I'm assuming its your daughter?

REX IS RIGHT,ALKL THE OBAMIST ARE SUKING THE LIFE OUT OF AMERICA,GHANG OF DEFEAT,DONKY BRIGADE, ALKL OF THEM DONT WORK,POST ALL DAY AND EAT GOVERMENT CHEESE,IF I WERE EMPIORER, THEYD ALL BE SHOT.

I thought this blog is about football.

LOL @ Pattypeepee, I just Sharted...

Nice to meet you all.

I'm RexRyan's Bowel Movement's son.

Eagles Vs Steelers @ 8 on FOX, Lets see if Ronnie brown finally blossoms..(Bet he does this season with a O-line..

I'm going to watch Mallet, see how bad we blew taking Thomas instead of him.

Pats vs Tampa

Social, Another Mistake by the FO.. IMHO

I want to see all you Henne lovers after Fridays 2nd pre-season game. Remember practice, practice, practice. "The receiver dropped the ball", "the receiver ran the wrong route", "it wasn't Henne's fault", "he had no protection"," the o-line stinks", "it was raining", "it wasn't raining, it was too hot", "the DB wasn't supposed to be there", "sporano talked down to him and ruined his confidence", "the fans shouldn't have booed him". Did I miss anything?

Alex Smith is a perfect fit for this dysfunctional franchise

You wish you had a Sanchez BROS


U MAD?

Lego, Odin has'nt even woke up yet..

You need to pull this out at the end of the year and see just how off you were.
I'm willing to bet that Henne has a better year than the 4 you have ranked below him, plus Garrard, Sanchez, Newton, Campbell, Kitna, Young, A. Smith, and possibly Cassel, Cutler, Stafford, and yes, Orton.
That would put him around the 20th. Not great, but better than the picture you so love to paint!

MY LIST;

1-BRADY
2-HENNE

Give Henne the O with a decent running game no wildcat see if he does'nt do better. As for you armand hope you don't have children cuz as negative as you are you would suck as a parent. Go Dolphins

Is Mando for real the supplemental draft!! Which there is more important and interesting things than than a bunch of prospects!! I think Mando needs to break down our division and post how can we beat the Pats the Jets the Bills, I think that's more interesting!!! Yes we all know Henne is not the answer but it's too late we live and die with Henne this year!!

Henne wont even finish the season let alone in the Sanchizes CLASS

dont be mad

bros

ODIN IS A WAKE SINCE 4;00 PM BUT STILL IN BED HAVING LUNCH OF PORK FEET AND FRIES .

Man, we play Philly this year!

EVERY THING HAS BEEN SAID ABOUT HENNE ALREADY.........

BACALA SALAD
SWISS CHARD SOUP
ORZO WITH OCTOPUS

OSCAR,


WHAT DOES YOUR LAST NAME (( CASOSA )) MEANS ?

I had a really strange dream about attending training camp last night.

In my dream, Daboll and Henne were wearing camouflage and calling each other Sarge and Pyle.

Sarge: Pyle! Why did you just throw the ball through the goal post?

Pyle: Well Sir, you told me to just throw the ball up ther and let the other feller's go git it.

Sarge: YEAH PYLE, BUT NOT RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE GOAL POST! TRY IT AGAIN!

Pyle: OK Sarge, I'll giver another shot.

(Ball sails over the corner of the endzone into the stands and knocks the glasses off of Jeff Ireland, who then immediately turns into Colonel Klink and loudly proclaims: Vaydy inta-Resting!)

As I started to awake I swear I could hear SpOrano laughing under his breath and whispering:

That oughtta teach the Bas-tard.

PS: I'm not one to read too much into dreams, but I'll never again have an anchovy pizza before bedtime.


The Eagles will be an exciting Team to watch.

Hey legego my legman you right Henne won't finish because we have a garbage RT and Jske Long is going to be rusty so he can easily give up couple of sacks while getting into football shape!!

The only logical explanation, as to why the Phin's have not obtained a QB to date, is Andrew Luck! The kid is that good, and will be an elite QB in the NFL.

It only makes sense to "suck for luck," especially after taking a look at the other options.

One year of pain for another Marino like era. I am OK with that!

ODIN...... IT'S ANCHOVI NOT ANCHOVY .......YOU DESTROYING THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE .

Brady's first preseason pass, first down to Welker.

2nd play, woodhead 50 yard run. thomas's longest run? 2 yards.

RAY RAY

Come to the green and white

Come to the NY Daily News "Jet Stream" blog

We will welcome you with open arms like Jason Taylor

d.thomas is the bust of this draft ..............

Odins eye is probably on the way to finsfan house or oscars ready to give a roman soldier helmet...

U MAD?

Ur Mad bRO

GOT TO BE A JETS FAN....CHAMPS

Posted by: Lego My Lageman | August 18, 2011 at 07:25 PM


Awwwwww-Looky-Looky!

Lageman must have got kicked out of the Rainbow Room for soliciting customers again.

Brady looking sharp, confident, hungry, determined. Throwing laser strikes.

Belichek looks like the smartest guy in the stadium.

Sparano looks like he wished he went to church more often.

ODinbrowneye

Good Morning,

Its a good thing you were able to pry your head off of "Biffs" hairy chest today.

I give you the chance to switch teams...but only within the next five minutes.

RAY has already decided to make the switch to the JETS STREAM at the NYDN...I suggest you do the same while there is time.

NYC has gay marriage so IM SURE its a plus for you guys

BE LIKE JASON TAYLOR

U MAD BROS


U


MAD?
GO JEts

Dc3guru that's just laughable what you just stated... If you really think that man you are fooling your self...I know these guys are a bunch of clowns but they aren't that stupid, you never know what might happen to Luck he can get hurt, there might be a team with the worst record or so many things can play out against the PHINS!! So no disrespect to you but that was a idiotic statement!!

Ya know whats really scary? ESPN came out with their top 250 fantasy players. Guess where BMarsh landed on the list? 63rd. That's terrible. 63rd. This front office looks and sees enough to get it done on it's offensive side of the ball. That's mind boggling.

Not worried about NE, I know what they can do. Want to see Philadelphia.

Aloco actually tried(and failed miserably) to correct my spelling-ROTF!

Then Lageman tries to convert me into a Ho-Mo, or should I say Wets fan, Same difference!

You two are like real life stars from the Idiocrasy Movie!

Rock On Wayne!!!!

JRLJR2


Brandon Marshall is the second coming of Chris Henry


U MAD BRO

It was a good trade BRo

Henne got weapons bro


GO JETS

Didn't read all the post but after 20th (ranked)....does it really matter?

YOU ARE RIGHT ARMANDO AND YOU COULD ALWAYS LOSE WEIGHT BUT CAN HENNE GET BETTER? MAYBE IF THERE IS NO MORE WILDCAT AND THEY SPREAD THE FEILD WITH THE 5 WIDE OUT OF THE SHOTGUN MAYBE HE WILL COME TO LIFE, THIS IS WISHFUL THINKING BUT THATS ALL US DOLFANS HAVE ! IF THEY HAVE ANOTHER LOSING SEASON THERE WILL BE CHANGES MADE MAYBE BILL COWHER.

Lageman, I wouldn't gloat too much becuase the Wets are the most overhyped team in the league. Lucky to get back to 10-6 this year. Doesn't help my Fins, but makes me feel better.

I wouldnt count on that and ILL be HERE TO REMIND YOU WHEN I HOIST THE TROPHY


GO JETS

DONT BE MAD

You suck my Lego, lego.

We could have had Hernandez. We passed because we have Fasano. I see. I think. Well...um...

Brady play action, pass to Ocho, TD. That team is in tune.

TOM BRADY IS MARINO'S DADY .........

LOL At Lego, 10 and 6 at best with a early exit from the play-offs, Sorry bro, not gonna happen with Pats,Ravins,Colts,And Steelers in this division, Dont see it happening this year or next..JMHO Though.
