Rank 'Em: NFL quarterbacks

Created: August 22, 2007, 9:49 AM

Starting at quarterback in the NFL makes a select group of signal callers part of one of the most exclusive clubs in all of sports, but those in the club are hardly equals.

As the 2007 regular season approaches, most teams appear to have settled on who they want under center for the first drive of the opening game. Future Hall of Famers like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, promising youngsters like Vince Young and veterans getting their shot like Matt Schaub and Damon Huard are all waiting to prove themselves.
