UPDATED FOR WEEK 5:
LW = Last Week's Ranking
H/L = High/Low = Highest Ranking/Lowest Ranking

A lot of interesting changes this week - a lot of guys are having REALLY up and down years, so there's a lot of drops and rises...only the top few players remain where they are, it seems.  Also, Cutler, Roethlisberger, Colt McCoy, and Jason Campbell are added this week because of changing starters

As always, let me know what you think.

1.) Peyton Manning: I could easily mix up the Top 3 of this list and put them in any order and be able to easily justify it.  However I've had Peyton on top for the last three weeks: so he deserves to remain on top until someone performs so well that they dethrone him. (LW: 1, H/L: 1/1)

2.) Tom Brady: Brady is below Manning to me because he's thrown for less yards and TDs...but despite that, you can argue him being at #1. (LW: 2, H/L: 2/3)

3.) Philip Rivers: Philip Rivers had a fairly low QB rating a few weeks ago but he's shot up the rankings in that aspect and is a definite number three to me.  He had a great game against the Raiders despite a loss. (LW: 3, H/L: 3/6)

4.) Drew Brees: Drew Brees is still super accurate.  And despite his team's lackluster play, he's doing well. (LW: 5, H/L: 4/5)

5.) Kyle Orton: Orton is still in the top 5 in yards and is putting up consistent numbers. (LW: 6, H/L: 5/12)

6.) Mark Sanchez: I think Sanchez at 4 was a bit of a stretch last week.  He was an extremely insignificant part of the Jets' victory against the Vikings.  However, he still has 8TDs and no interceptions, which is impressive.  Especially for a player who's started every game so far. (LW: 4, H/L: 4/7)

7.) Jay Cutler: Cutler is back on the list; he'll be starting this weekend.  He was putting up great numbers before I had to yank him from the Top 3 because of his injury. (LW: UR, H/L: 3/7)

8.) Ryan Fitzpatrick: Bills fans, Fitzpatrick is the truth.  Just look at the guy's stats...one of the most underlooked QBs this year.  He's doing great. (LW: 26, H/L: 8/26)

9.) Tony Romo: Romo is putting up good numbers even though his team isn't doing well. (LW: 10, H/L: 9/11)

10.) Aaron Rodgers: Despite a concussion last week, Rodgers is starting tomorrow.  Still one of the most consistent QBs in the league despite his numbers not being all too flashy. (LW: 7, H/L: 7/10)

11.) Matt Ryan: The Matt Ryan/Schaub argument continues.  Matt Ryan takes it this week because he throws fewer INTs and his team looks like they have a good shot at winning the division. (LW: 9, H/L: 8/11)

12.) Matt Schaub: See above. (LW: 8, H/L: 8/12)

13.) Ben Roethlisberger: Ben would be higher if he didn't go rape some chick... :robo: I'd put him higher now but as of now he's unproven. (LW: UR, H/L: n/a)

14.) David Garrard: David Garrard has redeemed himself to me.  I always thought highly of him so I'm glad to see him performing a little better than he did earlier in the year. (LW: 18, H/L: 14/28)

15.) Josh Freeman: Freeman continues to impress. (LW: 14, H/L: 14/16)

16.) Vince Young: Vince Young actually did help his team win last week against the Cowboys.  Still not the focal point of the offense, though. (LW: 15, H/L: 14/16)

17.) Carson Palmer: A down week for Carson after a good game Week 4.  He's definitely been a little off this whole year, lets see if he can pick himself up. (LW: 11, H/L: 11/23)

18.) Donovan McNabb: McNabb's racking up the yards but like a lot of QBs on the list, he's not very..."present" meaning he isn't a guy who throws a lot of TDs. (LW: 13, H/L: 13/18)

19.) Shaun Hill: Shaun Hill was fantastic last week and if he starts the rest of the year, he's actually on pace for almost 4000 yards.  He threw three TD passes in the Lions' blowout of the Rams.  It's going to be interesting to see whether or not they keep him in or start Stafford when he's healthy. (LW: 23, H/L: 19/30)

20.) Eli Manning: Manning is continuously average in every way, still.  I'm waiting for him to break out or start doing horrible...but he could also keep up at the pace he's going now. (LW: 19, H/L: 19/20)

21.) Chad Henne: Henne had a 300 yard game against the Pats but his 3 INTs were detrimental to his team's chances in that game. (LW: 12, H/L: 12/21)

22.) Kevin Kolb: I got some hate last week for putting Kolby over Flacco, but he played a good game against the Niners.  I have a feeling Andy Reid is going to want him to start even after Vick comes back because of this, but I really don't think that would be wise. (LW: 24, H/L: 22/24)

23.) Joe Flacco: Like I said last week, Flacco doesn't have to do much for his team to win. (LW: 25, H/L: 23/29)

24.) Matt Cassel: Nothing impressive from Cassel last week, but I'll still put him over Campbell because he's been a consistent starter for the Chiefs. (LW: 21, H/L: 17/24)

25.) Jason Campbell: Campbell was surprisingly good last week against the Chargers.  He did everything he could to keep the Raiders lead intact and didn't make any major mistakes.  Being a Raiders fan, I'm quite confused as to what direction we should go at QB; both him and Gradkowski have their moments.  Campbell proved himself last week and he'll be starting, so lets see what happens. (LW: UR, H/L: n/a)

26.) Brett Favre:  Favre had a solid showing last week in the second half of the Jets game.  I think once he gets used to playing again and Moss learns the offense, he'll be better. (LW: 27, H/L: 26/31)

27.) Sam Bradford: Bradford had a bad game last week, but I'll give him a pass and not put him any lower since he's still a rookie.  Continued bad play will drop him farther though. (LW: 16, H/L: 16/27)

28.) Alex Smith:  I really don't understand Alex Smith.  His numbers look great - except for the interceptions.  If he could be more careful with the ball, I could see him being much higher. (LW: 29, H/L: 27/29)

29.) Matt Hasselbeck: Smith over Hasselbeck?  Unfortunately, yes.  Like I said last week, he's just been lackluster and doesn't stick out in any way to me, and comparing him to the other QBs in the league and his division, he really doesn't seem any better than most of them. (LW: 20, H/L: 18/29)

30.) Max Hall: Max Hall didn't have any TDs and threw an INT, but he put up decent numbers otherwise.  I think in the future he could grow to become the QB the Cards want.  Definite potential. (LW: 31, H/L: 30/31)

31.) Jimmy Clausen: Clausen gets lucky and gets to stay above 32 for the second straight week, mostly because of the fact that McCoy is unproven. (LW: 30, H/L: 30/32)

32.) Colt McCoy: Colt is at #32 because this is his first week starting and he has no regular season NFL experience under his belt.  I'm really not sure how McCoy's going to do, I wasn't all that impressed by him in college. (LW: UR, H/L: 32/32)

Hopefully Jimmy continues to improve. I'm just worried that he'll get sacked too much because our O-line is slacking due to some injuries.

He mostly moved up because of Collins and Hall being added, but I can definitely see him getting better.

mark sanchez is not the 4th best active qb in the league plz
Its based on every QB's performance this year: QB rating, yards, yards per game, completion percentage, TDs, INTs, team's record (with a little bit of personal preference and prediction thrown in)

it's not "who is the best active QBs in the league" it's "who is doing the best right now, currently, at this point in the season"

Haha each team's record is one of the least important things i take into consideration, although it is important in deciding who is better among two players with similar stats.  Manning's still putting up the best overall numbers which is why he's #1 :work:

sam bradfords looking pretty good for being a rookie. definitely a pleasant surprise.
Yea, i had a feeling he would be good. In my draft league he starts over Favre for, obvious reasons.

Until we stop running Chris Johnson into a brick wall 30+ times a game and let Vince throw more than 12 passes, he's only gonna fall lower on this list. :work:

How is Kevin Kolb above Joe Flacco and Brett Favre. Really?! Really?!? I'm a die hard Eagles fan and he's been playing the most scared football I've seen in my entire life. He looks like a deer in headlights every time he drops back.

He probably shouldn't be above Joe Flacco but Brett Favre has been playing like the worst QB in the League this year.

Brady's going hard this season but atm Peyton's putting up godlike numbers. 1,365 passing yards, 11 TD's and 1 pick in 4 games, thats fucking ridiculous.

Favre is playing like he just came into the league and Flacco is mediocre at best. I guess they're really interchangeable though. Kolb had some decent moments.
