Anybody but Manning and I'd say Vick.

Peyton is so far ahead of the pack it's just not fair.

The following QBs, in my mind, are also ahead of Vick right now, somewhat in order:

1) Drew Brees- perhaps somewhat a product of the system, but there is no denying accuracy, the ability to elevate 3rd and 4th receivers into primary roles.

2) Phillip Rivers- like P.Manning, is getting 300 yard games minus his main WRs. No Vincent Jackson, he had a third string receiver start last week, and still threw 2 TDs to him.

3) Tom Brady- other than Wes Welker, he has an entire new cast of WRs from just one year ago, and is still north of 65% completion.

4) Aaron Rodgers- Is like Vick in that he can make plays with his legs, but is more accurate. Also dealing with injuries: no Ryan Grant, Jermichael Finley or Donald Driver at present.

5) Tony Romo- Maybe a controversial choice, but when healthy, continuously puts up numbers.

6) Matt Schaub- same as Romo, though has tailed off some in recent weeks, as Kubiak is going more with a ground approach.

7) Ben Roethlisberger- 2 SB rings, though he didn't win them by himself, last season really came into prominence, as the offense was more centered around him.

8) Eli Manning- Perhaps a bias pick from a Giants fan, but at this stage, he's just better. Is better reading defenses and checking down to third receivers, and has improved his accuracy over the past 2 seasons.

Arguably:

9) Matt Ryan- Has improved steadily since his rookie campaign and if I were a GM right now, I'd be slightly more inclined to take him.

On his best day, right now I'd put Vick around #9 or #10 in the league. There are some second tier guys that play better than Vick some weeks, worse in others. Amongst those are Jay Cutler, Kyle Orton, and Joe Flacco.
Vick is 30 years old, there are some youngsters that are going to emerge in the next season and possibly outplay Vick. I see Josh Freeman and Sam Bradford as two that come to mind right away, and possibly Matt Stafford, if he can somehow sustain health. Ryan Fitzpatrick is an unknown quantity still, but if he puts up numbers for another half season the way he is now, he'll have to be considered in the conversation as well.

Manning, it's not even close. I'd place at least a dozen other QB's ahead of Vick right now.

I have to vote for Manning, even though I personally don't like his style, too robotic and boring for me to watch. Vick is much more exciting but he has a long way to go before comparing to Peyton Manning.

Funny how this jack has 2 maybe 3 good games and now you're comparing him to a first ballot hall of famer. All kidding aside, it's pretty ridicilous!

LOL, I feel the same way. . . OP needs to stop drinking that koolaid

Put Manning with the Eagles' coaches and Vick with Caldwell & Co. - no contest - Manning hands down - and I'm an Eagles' fan.

Eagles' staff gets a lot of credit for Vick in my book. Look at McNabb - his INT percentage was always low. Put him with different coaches - now he has more INTs than TDs.

A better question would be: Who's going to the hall of fame? And that would be Manning.

Vick is fun to watch, I dont like him as a person, but he does make it more fun to watch. However, you can't even compare Vick to Manning. Manning is one of thee best QB's to play the game.
