Alex Smith is the 21st best QB


According to ESPN, here is the rankings for all starting Qb's in the League.  Our boy Alex is 21st on the list.  They give vague analysis so I left that out.

1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts

2. Tom Brady, New England Patriots

3. Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

4. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers

5. Brett Favre, Minnesota Vikings

6. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

7. Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers

8. Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys

9. Donovan McNabb, Washington Redskins

10. Carson Palmer, Cincinnati Bengals

17. Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle Seahawks

18. Vince Young, Tennessee Titans

19. Jason Campbell, Oakland Raiders

20. David Garrard, Jacksonville Jaguars

21. Alex Smith, San Francisco 49ers

Analysis: It's hard to believe this is Smith's sixth season. The pressure is on him to get the 49ers to the playoffs. He has not lived up to his No. 1 billing in the draft, obviously, but the surrounding cast is good enough to make a playoff run. One of the faults I noticed when I saw him in the preseason is that he doesn't always hit receivers in stride.

Chance of being elite: 0 percent

22. Matt Cassel, Kansas City Chiefs

23. Mark Sanchez, New York Jets

24. Kevin Kolb, Philadelphia Eagles

25. Chad Henne, Miami Dolphins

26. Byron Leftwich, Pittsburgh Steelers

27. Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions

28. Matt Leinart/Derek Anderson, Arizona Cardinals

29. Josh Freeman, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

30. Sam Bradford, St. Louis Rams
