NFL Quarterback Rankings: Week 6

This week's Top 5 clash: Romo v. Warner.

Two observations from last weekend: Neither Sage Rosenfelds, nor Drew Brees, will ever climb to No. 1 in these rankings.

Rosenfelds, because he’s skittish enough to produce three turnovers on his team’s final 10 snaps in a gut-wrenching, come-from-ahead loss to the Colts. And Brees, because before last night’s loss to the Vikings he was in the Saints’ team huddle screaming and grunting and barking and acting all Ray Lewis.

Quarterbacks – at least in my rankings book – should be calm, cool, even understated. Heavy on the efficiency, light on the emotion. Right, Eli?

Keep your team undefeated. Absorb the loss of your leading receiver by turning guys named Domenik Hixon and Sinorice Moss into stars. And do it all while still living in big bro's shadow.
