What, you mean last week wasn't one of Brett Favre's best weeks? I'm shocked!

The top 20 and the bottom 20 rankings demonstrate that the NFL is certainly a quarterback league. Sixteen of the top 20 performances were by quarterbacks whose teams will appear in the playoffs. Conversely, none of the bottom 20 rankings were by a quarterback who's team will be in the playoffs.

I think the most appealing aspect of this year's playoffs is that all the top gun QBs in the field. The QB play will be amazing to watch.

Pete - agreed. Mark Sanchez is the only second tier (and only because he's a rookie) QB in the field.
Palmer has not had the best year, but we know what he can do.
