We all know that if history tells us anything... at least one of these QBs will bomb and be out of the league in 5 years (Akili Smith, Jim Druckenmiller, Cade McNown, Ryan Leaf, Heath Shuler just to name a few). So... who's going to be a bust rather than a star?

Tough to answer without knowing what team they will be on, but I picked Roethlisberger. I dont think the other two will flop.

Ok, that's strange. I picked Roethlisberger too... but it's only showing him as having one vote.

I didn't want to vote for "They'll all be great NFL QBs". But all three will be non-busts, which in my definition means they'll stick around for at least 5 years. I don't believe any of the 1st round QBs this year will be the colossal busts that was mentioned at the top of the thread...

I voted for Rivers. I fell pretty secure in saying Manning will not be a bust

I think so too. I think they'll all be around 5+ years, so none of them would be considered FLOPS.

Trelach24: Yet another lesson in looking at a poster's location before taking their opinion on a sports matter seriously.


I'd say Roethleswhatever.........I think Rivers will end up being the best of the lot to be honest.....just a gut feeling.
