    Quarterback rankings: Eli Manning tops list heading into 2012

    15) Matt Schaub, Houston Texans: He's always been a big numbers guy, but the past couple years he's played smarter and the Texans have won more. Like Cutler's Bears, if Schaub didn't get hurt, the Texans would've made the trip to Indy in February.

    I got the impression he wasn't talking fantasy in this article and I took exception to a few that are ranked above our beloved leader:homer:

    I dont think that was fantasy talk either.. but how is Romo a head of schaub?? and to me, the last 2 minutes of the game are the most important to either make a comeback drive to win the game or to secure the victory by playing smart either way.. i know schaub has choked at moments but he also has not had the opportunity to play in the big game like Romo. We dont know maybe with more pressure on the line in a big playoff game moment schaub digs down deep and makes a heroic play. thats yet to be determined but i still dont understand the logic. also Flacco or matt ryan? what have they done? Flacco has arguably the best defense of the decade and has had one of the best running backs in the last 4 or 5 yrs. for several years schaub and dre were our only offense with a horrible defense. so i just dont understand this... maybe other ppl view this differently i dunno

    Matt Ryan?!? Joe Flacco?!?!? Jay Cutler?!?!?!! All ahead of Schaub? Really?!? Wow...

    Can't believe how "low" he has Aaron Rodgers either. And sure Eli has two Super Bowls, but is he really the best QB in the league? This list is pretty bad.

    Jason Smith's title with NFLN is "Fantasy Analyst". That's all he does is fantasy.

    I have said for years he is a good to average second tier QB. Schaub is what he is and will never be anything more than what he is.

    While he is a fantasy analyst, I don't believe this article is about "fantasy".

    That's fantasy, and Matt drops due to so many Texans run plays.

    Schaub is a "second 5" QB: 6th NFL rating, 6th in QBR, 10th by PFF -- which is plenty good enough to take us to the SB.

    Read some of his comments and this article is not about FF.

    He's the fantasy analyst.

    If it's "reality", then he's the biggest idiot in sportswriting ranking Aaron Rogers as 5th best QB in the league. Not worth reading, like BR.

    I hate it when people blame an entire organization over what one person said. Smith is entitled to his opinion, NFL.com on the other hand employs him.

    Agreed with Aaron Rodgers being the top rated QB. I would have Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees 1-2 in reality and fantasy.
