Wasn't going to comment in this thread until the Pats-Jets game, but this chart is interesting, in that it seems to be trying to take the era the QB played in out of the equation. Still a tricky proposition, trying to do that though.
Interesting that 2 of the bottom 7 on have Super Bowl rings (Trent Dilfer and Doug Williams).
I don't know if this list is a great way to compare QBs...Drew Bledsoe had his warts, but I can't believe the names he's behind on this list. The guy was NOT a below-average QB, no way, though he was definitely not good in the playoffs...his second-year numbers don't look great, from a YPA and TD-INT ratio standpoint, but that Pats team had NO running game, and it was ALL on him...he literally carried his team to 10 wins and a playoff appearance that season. And Daunte Culpepper seems like he's way too high up there. And Rich Gannon over Brady and Manning?!
I think this is a little rough on Sanchez...he was thrown into service in his rookie year, and that tends not to go well, numbers-wise, so his numbers took a beating that year, but he played very well in the playoffs that season (and also his second). Last year was a bad one, and I can understand why Jet fans and the franchise is down on him, but I don't think he's been as awful overall as this chart would lead one to believe.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
