    NFL.COM Top Quarterbacks under 30



    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...backs-under-30

    2) Matt Ryan, 27, Atlanta Falcons

    Over the past five seasons, Ryan has more regular-season wins than any other NFL quarterback. He led Atlanta to 13 wins this season, plus another win in the playoffs. His fumble and interception in the NFC Championship Game were costly, though the pick wasn't really his fault.


    It might seem odd that I ranked Ryan, who will be watching Super Bowl XLVII, above the two quarterbacks who will be playing in it. But when it comes to the numbers that indicate future success, Ryan's are simply better.

    3) Joe Flacco, 28, Baltimore Ravens

    Flacco doesn't put up eye-popping stats, but he wins big games on the road, especially in the playoffs, where he has more road wins than any quarterback in NFL history. No one in the NFL has a better arm than Flacco. He played much better after Jim Caldwell took over as the Ravens' offensive coordinator in December.

    Incidentally, Flacco's incredible success this postseason -- he's thrown eight touchdowns and zero interceptions -- bodes well for him in the Super Bowl. Five other quarterbacks have thrown eight or more touchdowns and zero picks in the postseason: Joe Montana, Steve Young, Phil Simms, Troy Aikman and Drew Brees. All won the Lombardi Trophy that season while being named the MVP of the title game.
    Obviously I'm switching Joe and Melting Ice.

    OK, I'm crying now. Ya happy???

    13) Andy Dalton, 25, Cincinnati Bengals

    Dalton is a very solid, hard-working player who most likely won't win much on his own. He did take Cincinnati to the playoffs his first two seasons in the league, but he seems to need the help of an outstanding supporting cast to get anywhere.

    These writers are fixated on regular season statistics. Playing in a dome with all-star receivers will skew anyone's regular season statistics. There are other more important factors to being a top QB than that. Winning in the post-season is one of the main ones.

    Plus you have to consider Flacco was in Cam-cuffs for a long time.

    Doesn't bother me at all. statusquo for sportswriters to find a way to diss Flacco. Surprised he was number 3, what happen to Dalton,newton,sanchez(ok,that was a low blow)r2d2,and who ever else is under 30. It's an inside joke among the talking heads to see who can distort the facts and make the Ravens team or player be less then they really have been.

    I'd put Dalton at the top of his tier; at the very least.

    And playoff games. And games against top 10 defenses.

    But when would a QB ever need to play well in those situations anyway right?

    Why are you trying to have an intelligent discussion with a known troll?
