Well I sure hope... :-D

As for Culpepper I wouldn't downgrade him too much. Sure, he had an off week but so does just about every player. He may be number 3 QB now, but I wouldn't put him any further than that. Right now my top 5 is
1.Manning
2. McNabb
3. Culpepper
4. Collins
5. Bulger

depending on scoring, some qbs will never crack top 3 status.

Ints always seem to be forgotten. and those qbs who throw lots of picks but dont offset some of it with 3 or 4 rushing TDs and above average rushing yards over the course of the season can damper the passing stats.

Scoring is a huge part of this discussion. Vick was top 3 in my scoring format last year. Yes top 3.

If you are a run and TD heavy league (which obviously I am in) you can't sleep on Vick.

That said, it was nice to see Palmer and Green in lots of your lists since I own both of them in my league.

My league counts passing TDs for 6 points ... the same as rushing and receiving TDs.
I don't know why, but no one seemed to understand how valuable this would make the top QBs (and it actually takes a little value from the running QBs since rush TDs don't count for extra). I snagged Manning third overall, and, since he was the best value pick at the time, Collins in the fifth round as a backup.
Hopefully, people will start to see how this is going to pan out and I can get great trade value for Collins.
Need big trade advice:

Man I hope you're right, cuz in 3 Leagues the only guy I have (starter or backup) not on that list is Hasselbeck.

I really think after one week it's too early to say. 3 of the past 4 Super Bowl Champs started either 1-1 or 0-2. A Lot of "Top 10 Preseason" QB's will likely bounce back this week (ala CPepp, Favre) while a couple of the guys with great week 1's will come crashin' back to reality (Drew Bledsoe? What, is this 1996 all of a sudden?)

I added a candidate I think you were missing - if the Dallas O-line is as good as they have looked Bledsoe (as much I hate the guy) is a viable candidate to be up there on this list as when he is not being bum-rushed he has shown he can still get it done...
