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.

Was That Justin Bieber sing the national anthem in the Philly-Steelers game?, If so, Americas youth is retarded..

MALLET WILL COME SOON ......

TONIGHT MAMA MARIA IS COOKING QUILE WITH BRUSSAL SPROUTS AND NEW BORNEW POTATO, DELIOUS.

Anybody watching NE? Pats are on fire offense and defense. 21-0. 3 series for Brady, 3 TD's.

We are still 2 owners, 3 coaches and 5 QB's from being at their level.

La Puma, Who are they playing?

I got a snack for you FAGeman!

Faygo the FAGeman was a very merry FERRY

With two eyes of coal a brown spotted nose and a corn cobb plugged Bung Hole!

Sing it with me now FAGeman.................

(New Yorkers, there ALL the same-Sheesh!)

12 MINUTES OF PLAY =3 TD'S

NE at Tampa.

Still all the starters, total domination by NE.

I think Sparano is watching this while having a snack on Rolaids.

Snap..., Is that a real storyline?, If so, Your right, And they storm into town Sept 12th, Monday night,primetime.. Ohhhhhh

1st quarter stats

158 yards offense for NE
7 yards offense for Tampa

NE...LOOKING LIKE CHAMPS

TB LOOKS LIKE FINS/////////////

NE offense knows what they are doing.
MIA offense still trying to figure it out.

Once again naysayers keep putting their foot in their mouth.
Freeman rated #8-7 in these bloggers lists is awfull with a 3 for 9 and 24 yards against the patriots in 3 drives in the first qtr.
The Bucaneers and their QB sucked so bad I stop watching after a 21-0 first qtr.
Let's go Fins!

The Miami Dolphins Media Guide has our long snapper on the cover - is this the final insult to a proud franchise - Go Special Teams !

IF YOU HAD 100,000 IN NASDQ A 3 WEEKS AGO ,TODAY YOU HAVE ONLY 72,000......................

LOL At Wombat, Yeah thats sad.

I MISS READING THE CUBAN MENACE , I WISH HE WOULD BE HERE .ALSO , I MISS 0X80 .....................

WomBat, BTW, Who is the Long Snapper??LOL

WOODHEAD= THE ENTIRE DOLPHINS OL .....................

28-0

If NE can look this good against Tampa, we better look good against Carolina.

Aloco, Hows my application going for my Gang of Defeat ??

FP....... YOU R ONE OF MY FAVORITE POSTERS HERE...FUNNY AND WET.......

We can beat the Eagles. Mike Vick just can't read defenses. Never could. 8-8.

Oscar

We can beat the Eagles maybe. The problem is we can beat ourselves too.

WIT

nome, we have a D = to pitt. He has no chance.

Oscar, our d starters did not look = to pitt last week. Lets let them prove it before we crown them.

Place your bets!, as the odds will go down.

I am very surprised as to how ragged the Eagles look being a veteran Team.

You just wait until we blitz him, nome.

The guy has the brain of an amoeba.

Is this Phylli's first pre-Season game?

Mallet had a pick six, overthrew a long ball, aside from that he is about 8 for 11, looking poised and sharp.

Msllett will be the #2 QB already.

Who cares about Mallet, they have Brady.

Philly not in sink and they commentators were saying that the OL of Philly are having issue's and no performing good!!

VY, very athletic, but not the QB we envision here in Miami. Moore is closest to it.

Oscar why did we take Thomas over Mallet?

Mallet is a sociopath.

Is Mike Tomlin a great Coach or what?

Half the players in the nfl are sociopaths.

We passed on Tomlin to take Cameron. Tomlin was interviewed.

No! You mean socially deprived. Listen, guy, you don't have a fuc-ing idea what a sociopath is. You probably one.

Brees Stats equal Marino's might kick him up a couple of notches.

Oscar, are you a hostile person? I can assure you my vocabulary is far superior to yours, that much is obvious. I don't need to cuss out strangers to express a thought.

I was only joking about the sociopath comment. Mallet is no sociopath, its you that needs to look up the word.

My take, Brady, Manning, Brees, Vick, Rivers!

Whoops, ad Rodgers before Rivers!

Nome, welcome to the blog! Where are you from?

I KNOW the word, you fu-k, I work with it everyday.

Henne Sucks!
Just had to get that in today...

Omar, I mean, Mando -- I am not trying to be abusive but you are RETARDED!
