ESPN ranks Brad Johnson...

... As the 18th best quarterback in the NFL.
Gary Horton of Scouts Inc. said of Johnson: "A poor night versus a swarming Patriots defense that gave him a lot of different looks. His lack of mobility was a real problem, and he forced too many passes into coverage, throwing an uncharacteristic three interceptions."
He has Johnson ahead of Kansas City's Damon Huard, who has adequately filled in for Trent Green, and Mark Brunell.
Johnson is below Ben Roethlisberger, Tony Romo, Chad Pennington, Jake Plummer and Steve McNair.
Is he too high or too low?

Way to high. He should be sitting at 28. 12 turnovers...4 TD's. thats real nice.

Sit him.

I think it is just about right after a bad outing. If he rebounds against SanFran, the ranking should go back up to his previous 15th place. Personally, I don't care where Brad appears in the list, as long as he does what Childress asks of him. He has the skills to do it. I think he will.

His deep ball is horrible, obviously, but any quarterback can look bad when the offensive balance isn't there. In my opinion, Taylor needs to get going earlier on in the game to take some pressure off of him.

I agree with TJ.

Why are people saying it was just one bad game? Look at his season stats please!! It has been one bad season for him.

I guess it's about right, in my opinion, although Huard should probably be above him. He's not the worst QB this season, and he's not top ten, thats for sure. So anything in the middle-near-the bottom seems fitting.

At this point, I'm not sure if the offensive production woes stem from Brads lack of mobility/arm strength, our WR's stone hands, our O-lines good but inconsistant blocking, or playcalling.

Probably a little bit of everything. I still dig Chester though.
