Jaws: Peyton Manning a top-3 QB

Ron Jaworski has revisited his NFL quarterback rankingsInsider at the midpoint of the season in an Insider piece. Let’s take a look at where he puts AFC West signal-callers:

Peyton Manning, Denver

Ranking: 3

Comment: A legitimate argument could be made for Manning being No. 1.

Philip Rivers, San Diego

Ranking: 11

Comment: Rivers didn’t have a great second quarter of the season, so this ranking is fair.

Carson Palmer, Oakland

Ranking: 22

Comment: Palmer has stayed at No. 22 on Jaws’ list. Some times, he looks like a top-15 quarterback, and others times he really struggles.

Matt Cassel, Kansas City

Ranking: 30

Comment: It’s difficult to make an argument that Cassel should be ranked higher. He’s in his final days with the Chiefs.
