With those 4 guys in the mix, you really do have the top 1/2 of the league as a 'championship caliber' QB.
Quarterback remains the most important position in sports, but it's also become the most overhyped. You absolutely, positively cannot win in the NFL with a bad quarterback. However, the more I've looked at the league over the last couple of months, the more I've realized that all you really need to have is a guy in the top 1/2 or so.
The reason you roll the dice on a guy like Geno Smith is that a truly elite QB is still a force multiplier and a nice way to cover for some weaknesses. It's no doubt easier to win with a top 5 guy.
But if 15 is the best you can do, take heart - you can still win and win big with that guy.
No, I completely blanked on Romo, Cutler, and Stafford. Whoops.
Personally, I think Rivers is done. Romo and Cutler on their current teams make it difficult for them to reach a SB IMO but they could definitely do it as far as their individual talents go.
We do not choose our destinies. Yet we must...we must do our duty, no? Great or small, we must do our duty.
