THE GOOD:

Ben Roethlisberger: The guy is magic, even if he’s a sexual predator. He masks the shortcomings of an offensive line like no one I’ve seen besides Peyton Manning, except he does it more with brawn and moxie than intelligence. The Steelers win was more due to him than anyone else on their team today, and that is often the case.

Ryan Clark: The guy doesn’t get enough credit, but he wasn’t on the field vs Denver and that was felt in their loss. You didn’t see him blow too many things up this evening, but he was part of the reason the Steelers didn’t miss Polamalu as much as expected.

Garrett McIntyre: The only guy on the Jets defense who mastered the surprisingly rare ability of tackling Ben Roethlisberger.

THE BAD:

Mark Sanchez: Last week’s beautiful princess turned into this week’s bleating, incompetent goat. Communications issues continued with the WR corps, and given the fact that it seems to extend to every WR on the Jets’ roster, you have to look towards the QB. Let the Tebow talk begin.

Bart Scott: He may be lighter and faster, but he’s still missing tackles after his big miss on Spiller last week.

The Jets’ Medical Staff: Shonn Greene pretty obviously suffered a concussion in the first half. Sanchez ushered a dizzy, off balance Greene from the field. He came back and still looked out of sorts.

THE TEBOW:

He didn’t get many snaps, but if there was any time Jets fans wanted to see more Tebow, it was probably today. Sanchez was horrific in the 2nd half. Tebow had a nice 22 yard run but didn’t produce anything else in limited snaps. After the game, Rex Ryan insinuated that less Tebow plays were run because the injured Shonn Greene is heavily involved in a lot of those plays. I’m sure future opponents will take note of that.

 
Looks like it's time for another facelift, Jerry.

It’s a QB driven league nowadays, and that’s partially due to the fact that it has become an increasingly passer friendly league. From the “Ty Law” rule to the limitations on how you can hit a QB, you have to be able to exploit the pass well to win nowadays. There were two notable exceptions in the playoffs last year: The New York Jets and the Bengals. The Jets got by with an incredible defense, while the Bengals got by with a decent defense and a soft schedule. It’s been theorized that you can’t win a Super Bowl with a caretaker QB anymore, like the Ravens did with Trent Dilfer. This could be bad news for the Jets, because Mark Sanchez still is not capable of carrying the Jets.

1. Peyton Manning

2. Tom Brady

3. Aaron Rodgers (This guy does more with less, so I’ve bumped him over several comparable QBs in the playoffs.)

4. Drew Brees (Similar to Manning or Brady with less physical skills, poorer decision making.)

5. Ben Roethlisberger (Makes Steelers’ poor pass protection almost turn into a boon.)

6. Matt Ryan

7. Michael Vick (His athletic ability dynamically changes the Eagles ability to compete.)

8. Joe Flacco (Good QB, but he’s not carrying his team yet.)

9. Jay Cutler (Bigtime skills, bigtime bad decisions.)

10. Matt Hasselbeck (Old, but you saw what he can do against the Saints.)

11. Mark Sanchez (Terrible accuracy and decision making at times, but plays well in crunch time.)

12. Matt Cassel (The most limited QB in playoffs. Doesn’t make mistakes, but unable to carry the team on his back at all.)

I think as things stand 10-12 aren’t going to be able to do enough to take their teams to the Super Bowl, all other things being equal. 7-9 are the next tier up: They have some flaws, but there’s no reason they couldn’t string together 2-3 excellent games. 4-6 aren’t going to do things to sabotage their team most of the time, and may excel in any given game. 1-3 are the elite QBs, the ones that are going to cause all kinds of problems for the opposing team, and are likely to excel unless the opposition out gameplans and outskills their teams.
