    if you had to take one of these 4 QB's to start your team who you taking?

    PIT- Ben Roethlisberger 28 years old 2 super bowls. but seems to have issues off the feild

    NY- Mark Sanchez 24 years old young good arm

    CHI- Cutler 27 years old great arm, but makes mistakes.( just had his first post-season win sense high school)

    GB- Aaron Rodgers 27 years old, great arm but surrounded by weapons. quiet guy, but can sling it and run it.

    so who you got and why?!

      Give me jay cutler, he can make all the throws. When his receiver corps develop, watch out.

    I would say Big Ben, only cause he has the experience. The other three will be good in time, more so Aaron Rodgers. I look forward to watching this kid. He keeps getting better and better.

    I agree with you. Big Ben.
    Jets were lucky to get over on New England (I heard Brady was sick with the flu). Sanchez is not ready.

      Jets were lucky?

      Were they lucky too when they beat the Colts 2 weeks ago? NFL Fact - since 2001 (including the playoffs) NO team has defeated the Colts and the a Patriots in back to back games. Well that was until the Jets did. I kinda think that stat takes more than just luck.

      Brady had the flu?

      Did you see Bradys media conference after the game or before the game? Did anyone mention he was sick? I bet he was sick after the game but it wasnt the flu. He was probably sick to his stomach. He got beat.

      Sanchez is not ready?

      Well if his 'not ready' how is it that in the 2 years that he has been the Jets QB, Gang Green has come to play in the AFC Championship game. If this is what he has done in 2 years I am over the top excited to see what he will do in the next 5 years!

      And last but not least when the Jets win the AFC this weekend Sanchez will become the first quarterback in NFL history to win five road playoff games - and remember he is only in his second season.

      The flight boys are taking off.....next stop Pittsburgh!

        Ummm, how often do you think teams play the Patriots and Colts in back-to-back games?

          Ummm thats not the point and you know it  . .

          fact is that anytime you can beat two future hall of fame QBs back to back in their place is beyond impressive. Sanchez has done it, and he has done it in his second year as a pro.

          Tell me who else can boast the same?

            I'd chalk it up to his defense being better than the Colts or Patriots defense more than him outperforming Manning and Brady. 16 for 25 for 194 yards is hardly a great performance, it just happened to be better than Brady's worst game of the season. The week before that Sanchez was 18 for 31 for 189 yards against the Colts, with 0 TDs and 1 INT. He had a 62.4 QB rating in that game versus a 108.7 for Manning. The Jets beat the Colts, but in no way, shape, or form did Mark Sanchez outperform Peyton Manning in that game.

            If the Jets win the Super Bowl, it's going to be for the exact reason why people were predicting they might win it before the season started: they have one of the best secondaries in the history of the game, and that secondary is finally starting to "click" at the right time of the season.

              I agree with DB. I am not convinced that Mark Sanchez did anything special to beat the Colts or Patriots and saw a pretty fantastic game plan by Rex Ryan and his defense.

              Sanchez reminds me of Dilfer with the Ravens in 2000/01 more so than any kind of superstar QB, but he is still young and has plenty of time to develop, so who knows.

    I confess to having seen only one of the four quarterbacks play; Roethlisberger. I am a Steelers fan and think the team can take it all the way again.

    I have to say in the NFC that it is Arron Rogers and in the AFC it is Ben Roethlishberger

    Aaron Rodgers and Big Ben are the best of what's left, but that's not a guarantee of victory. The Jets have the best pass defense and are capable of making any quarterback look bad. The Bears might not have a consistent quarterback, but they make up for it in other areas.

    1. I think if I had to choose, I'd go with Rodgers. He is the most talented quarterback. 2. Ben is a very close second. He has the experience to back him up. The other two are only decent quarterbacks with a good team around them.

    As far as the Jets go, I will ALWAYS be a Joe Namath fan!  ;-) 

    I'm hoping Rodgers pulls it off b/c I would love to see GB win it all.  No football analysis, just think it's time.  But the Steelers are gonna be tough.

    These are going to be some great games to watch.

      Oh boy, you probably wouldn't want to read the hub I wrote a few days ago comparing Joe Namath to Trent Dilfer.

    I take nothing away from Mark Sanchez. Good young talent. He is only going to get better. He could lead them all the way. He has that talent.

    It depends on who you ask, but I'm going with a proven record and that belongs to Big Ben. Aaron Rodgers comes a close 2nd.

      It depends on who you ask and exactly what you are asking. Which QB is most likely to lead their team to victory this weekend or to a Super Bowl win this year?

      Probably Roethlisberger

      Who has more tools and talent and could win a lot of games/MVP/Super Bowls in coming seasons?

      Probably Rodgers

      I do not like Cutler or the Bears and feel they got lucky in every imaginable way to make it this far. That doesn't mean they can't beat the Packers this weekend in a 1-and-done scenario, it means they really shouldn't have gotten the chance.

      Sanchez looks like he could develop into a game manager type QB, but not a superstar. Fortunately for him, with the defense and running game they have built/are building on the Jets, that's probably all he has to be to win a Super Bowl or two. But he will not ever win a MVP.
