QB Power Rankings – Week 6

Rankings are based on previous week’s ranking in addition to how the player has played to this point throughout the season. This isn’t a ranking based solely on this week alone.

1. Robert Griffin III (4) [ ʌ ]
            That's right, there's a new king here on this list, and it comes in the form of the Washington Redskins' rookie phenom, RGIII. Griffin is 3rd in the league in QB Rating, but is currently first in the league with 70.6% of his passes completed. He's not throwing all over the place and posting TD's, but he's compensating on the ground where he's 2nd in the LEAGUE in scoring.

2. Peyton Manning (6) [ ʌ ]
            Peyton Manning is second in the league in passing yards. He's second in the league in QB Rating. He's tied for 2nd in passing TD's. He's 4th in the league in completion percentage. Say what you will, but Peyton isn't washed up or done. This man is getting back into the swing of things, and his second half the other night was one of the greatest halves of football ever. The Sheriff is back!

3. Eli Manning (7) [ ʌ ]
            Eli didn't have an amazing game, and it was the worst game by any QB who has beaten the 9ers this year... but Eli beat the 9ers and didn't make any critical mistakes.

4. Matt Ryan (1) [ v ]
            I'm bumping Ryan because, of all the players in the top 10 on this list last week, he's one the ones who really bothered me the most with his performance, and he's been struggling the past couple weeks to play well for full games.

5. Aaron Rodgers (12) [ ʌ ]

6. Tom Brady (5) [ v ]
            Following what he did against Denver, you'd expect Tom Brady to continue to perform at a very high level. And maybe Brady is "one man" as Richard Sherman expressed, but he's got to do more for his team than he was able to do.

7. Matt Schaub (3) [ v ]
            Schaub has to play a lot smarter than he did against the Packers. It's not like this is the Packers defense of the 2010 season. I know it's not easy for anyone to respond to Rodgers when he plays the way he did, but you at least have to try.

8. Joe Flacco (8) [  ]
            Although he only posted one touchdown, Flacco played a solid game against the Cowboys who came to play as well.

9. Drew Brees (9) [  ]
            Bye week.

10. Ben Roethlisberger (2) [ v ]
            Ben didn't win, and didn't look impressive.

11. Jay Cutler (15) [ ʌ ]
            Bye week.

12. Brandon Weeden (18) [ ʌ ]
            2 TD's helped the Browns get a division win against the Bengals. Good decisions, good numbers, strong victory.

13. Andrew Luck (10) [ v ]
            Luck followed up his best game with one of his worst.

14. Christian Ponder (14) [  ]
            Ponder wasn't horrible against the Skins, but he wasn't good, and definitely not playing as hard as he normally would (where were the wheels?).

15. Alex Smith (11) [ v ]
            Bad Alex back.

16. Ryan Tannehill (20) [ ʌ ]
            Big game from Ryan against a tough St. Louis defense. He got the win with 2 TD's, no INT's on 72% completions.

17. Tony Romo (27) [ ʌ ]
            Dez Bryant catches that ball, Tony may have the victory over Baltimore. He played a helluva game coming off of the bye week.

18. Russell Wilson (25) [ ʌ ]
            Russell Wilson beat Tom Brady with a late-game bomb TD that wasn't controversial. 3 TD's, 290 yards, 0 INT's on 59.3% completions. It wasn't the greatest game every, but it was good enough to help him move up this list.

19. Josh Freeman (26) [ ʌ ]
            326 yards, 3 TD's and 1 INT. But he scored when it mattered to help his team continue to build a lead against the Chiefs and come out victorious.

20. Andy Dalton (16) [ v ]
            Take away the 3 INT's, and Dalton played a very good game. But you can't take away those 3 INT's, and he played a terrible game in a losing effort to division-rival Cleveland.

21. Kevin Kolb (17) [ v ]
            Bad display from Kolb. Horrible decisions, bad throws, and nothing to fall back on in a loss.

22. Carson Palmer (19) [ v ]
            Carson was having a very good day against the Falcons. Posting big numbers. But he made a horrible decision... a costly decision, that led to an Asante Samuel (we all know this one because it happens a couple times every year) INT return for a TD off a lazy read/route/throw. A win without that INT would have really boosted Palmer's standing here... amazing what one bad throw can do to you.

23. Matthew Hasselbeck (28) ʌ ]
            He's getting worse every week, but he got the win with a lot of help from Chris Johnson who came out of retirement against the Steelers.

24. Cam Newton (22) [ v ]
            Bye week.

25. Philip Rivers (13) [ v ]
            One of the worst performances all year. Rivers goes up huge at halftime, comes out flat and taking dumb risks with a lead trying to pad his stats. Thankfully for the fans, the Broncos padded their stats instead. Rivers further showing people why I say he's not even a top 12 QB in this league.

26. Sam Bradford (23) [ v ]
            Bradford had a rushing TD, good completion percentage, but there was nothing posted in the passing score column and he absorbed too many sacks. Bradford's much better than this, or at least he's advertised to be. He sure does miss Danny Amendola.

27. Mark Sanchez (29) [ ʌ ]
            82 yards, on 11 of 18 passing, but 2 TD's and a win sure helps make those numbers look a little more respectable. 3 rushing TD's out of Shonn Greene helped a lot, but can't knock the hustle.

28. Michael Vick (21) [ v ]
            Vick cut down on the fumbles... only to turn the INT's back up. Through 6 games, Mike Vick has 13 turnovers. He can't blame the flack jacket for the dumb throws. The Eagles DID ask him to throw 46 times, and Andy Reid is as stubborn as ever when you've got a running back who can be one of the best RUNNERS in the league out there... but Vick's still got to protect the ball, especially in close games.

29. Ryan Fitzpatrick (24) [ v ]
            Fitzpatrick isn't the answer at QB for the Bills. They need to treat him like every other marginally good QB they had and get rid of him. There's no excuse for him to be playing this bad this many games in a row. He got the win, but it was more on his team coming to play than it was him showing up to do something.

30. Matt Stafford (30) [  ]
            It's hard to show Stafford any respect with 48% completion, even if he did get the win. Maybe the Madden curse is hunting the wrong person in the same locker room.

31. Blaine Gabbert (32) [  ]
            Bye week.

32. Matt Cassel (33) [  ]
            Didn't play.

I am disappointed by this. Microsoft has abandoned millions of customers worldwide in favor of their newly acquired toy, Skype. They flaunt it as a merger but the merging process is reported widespread to be faulty and does not transition your contact. They also have not yet ado…

You Must Be The Greatest!

"The irony was not lost on me: the man my trials had molded me into, was the master I'd spent all these years trying to find. I was lost and alone, awash with despair. I sought mentorship, I sought guidance- I'd fallen to my knees and begged for it. And now, there is no other way to say it, than to say I'd been blinded by suffering; I just could not see that my many struggles had been the hands sculpting me into the guide I'd sought. Where I once sought from others their forgiveness for my failures, I now forgive myself, and seek to help other extend the same to themselves. Where I once sought from my loved ones support for my dreams, I find now that they did not extend aid because they saw who I could be, and not who I was. I am my own master. Master, and servant - I am not above humanity, nor below it. I am of it, I am it. I am all that is human: life, death, love, loss, joy, and suffering. I am all of it, and because I am all of it, I am important, and necessar…

WWE Brand Split Mock Draft

So we're coming up very close to the brand split in the WWE, where RAW and Smackdown will be exclusive brands with exclusive rosters, and Smackdown will be going live every Tuesday.
Now, there are a number of factors that could shift the way the draft is handled. For example, we're still uncertain which show Shane and Stephanie will run. We're still unsure if they're certainly going to bring back the World Heavyweight Championship, or run with my idea and merge the IC/US titles and make that the main title on Smackdown. We're still not aware if tag teams will be split, if each show will have a unique division and title. We're still not sure if we're going to have women exclusive to each show and what that means for the Women's Championship.
Now, barring all surprise (not currently on the roster, and not NXT) draft choices, let us work with a few assumptions. First, I want to assume they will be bringing the World Heavyweight Championship back. I want t…
