Eli Manning or Tony Romo – What NFC East QB is Better?

The ESPN NFC East blog ranked the quarterbacks in this esteemed division. The verdict?

  1. Vick
  2. Romo
  3. Eli
  4. McNabb
  5. Kolb
  6. Grossman/Beck

We’ll exclude the last two rankings, because they are backups who could be starters whenever there is a season.

I agree completely with Mike Vick being the best QB. I know he’s an Eagle, but he is tremendously fun to watch, possesses incredible raw talent, and believe it or not, is still learning the QB position. He has it all: Can throw with the best of them, can obviously run. When the Eagles were mounting that comeback, watching Vick do his thing was incredible.

McNabb’s days as a top tier QB are over, and with rumors swirling that John Beck is going to be the starter, McNabb’s days as a QB might be over. He had some great years, no doubt, and often did it with lackluster receiving talent. Once he got a big time receiver in TO, he made the Super Bowl.

So, onto Romo v Manning. I’ll admit, I’m biased. I like Eli Manning more than I like Tony Romo. I’m going to try to be objective, looking at stats.

Eli’s Career:

105 games, 22,646 yards, 215 yards per game, 58% completion, 156 touchdowns, 1.48 touchdowns per game, 113 interceptions, 1.07 INTs per game. . 4-3 playoff record.

Romo’s career

83 games, 16,650 yards, 200 yards per game, 64% completion, 118 touchdowns, 1.42 touchdowns per game, 62 interceptions, .74 interceptions per game. 1-3 playoff record.
