Warner had six years where he was starter, and a bunch of other starts when he wasn't the "starter." Clutch playoff performer....
McNabb...played the whole decade and enjoyed sustained success with the Eagles...
Roethlisberger has six years....two rings.... clutch playoff resume/regular season resume.
I'd probably take:
Because they played basically the whole decade. Give me 10 years of someone over 6 years of another quarterback in similar ability.
I don't know about Roethlisberger. Hes only played 6 seasons, and two of those were nothing to write home about, and only 2 of those seasons he tossed more then 20 TDs. Carson Palmer has posted nearly identical stats to Roethlisberger over the same number of games, but didn't have the Steelers defense to get him a couple rings. However, I guess most people feel obligated to go with Roethlisberger because of the rings.
Other than that, the only other QB I could make a serious argument for would be Steve McNair.
