    This is off the top of my head... Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlinsberger, Donovan McNabb, Matt Ryan, then Marc Bulger, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Jamarcus Russell make about the same. Michael Vick was near the top before the incident.

    It is going to put a lot of coaches and owners on the hot seat trying to make or exceed what Ryan got and he still hasn't took an NFL snap, not even preseason.. I don't like this stuff at all.

    This is old though, so I don't know where Garrard, Roethlisberger, and Ryan fit in. They all should be on that list now.
