Like all great sports arguments, this debate began at a bar, with a number of SI.com colleagues earlier this week. The challenge: rank the 32 projected starting quarterbacks. The criteria: how will they perform in 2007, factoring intangibles such as winning and leadership along with statistics. Marc Bulger may have better numbers than Tom Brady, but that doesn't make Bulger more valuable.

After No. 5, this gets very difficult, but if you disagree with any of my rankings, I'll gladly set you straight in a FanNation Throwdown at any time.

  1. Peyton Manning
  2. Tom Brady
  3. Carson Palmer
  4. Drew Brees
  5. Philip Rivers
  6. Donovan McNabb
  7. Ben Roethlisberger
  8. Marc Bulger
  9. Matt Hasselbeck
  10. Michael Vick
  11. Tony Romo
  12. Matt Leinart
  13. Jay Cutler
  14. Vince Young
  15. Brett Favre
  16. Steve McNair
  17. Alex Smith
  18. Jeff Garcia
  19. Jake Delhomme
  20. Chad Pennington
