Isn't it curious that Tom Brady, the most successful quarterback of the last decade, wasn't worthy of one of your four covers? You do know, don't you, that you have only added fuel to the Patriots' fire? Watch out, NFL!

Peter King, to break a tie among the experts he surveyed on various quarterbacking topics (Peter King's QB Poll, Sept. 7), picked Tom Brady over Ben Roethlisberger as the best under pressure. Seriously? Brady has been the beneficiary of stellar pass protection, a strong offensive system and inside information (see Spygate). The last time we saw Brady under intense pressure was in Super Bowl XLII, and we all know how that turned out. Roethlisberger's ability to escape the rush and create huge gains is the reason the Steelers are the defending champions.

How can Eli Manning be left off a list of the five best quarterbacks of 2015? He has more playoff wins (four) than four of the QBs (Matt Ryan, Aaron Rodgers, Jay Cutler, Joe Flacco) combined?
In the category of best quarterback teacher, I would argue for a spot for Cam Cameron. The former Chargers and current Ravens offensive coordinator has served as a mentor to three of today's top quarterbacks: Drew Brees, Philip Rivers and now Joe Flacco.
