QB Comparisons--2009 season

My friend and I recorded these stats off of ProFootballFocus pre-draft 2010. I don't know if the stats have changed since then but i was explaining to this particular Colt-friend of mine that Garrard wasn't that bad and he was slightly impressed afterwards. This takes Manning, Brady, Brees, Garrard and Roethlisberger to the stat sheet. I'm not on my computer so i don't know how to make it a spread sheet. Regardless, the stats should spur an interesting discussion.


I can't get the columns to turn out well, sorry.
