Frye should walk away with this. The real question is who's the 2nd best.

IMO that would be Campbell, then it's a toss up.

 
It is Frye for me. He should good skills and moxy. Plus, he has decent weapons coming back from injury

 
I voted Frye but I would not give up on Alex Smith so quickly. He has the smarts, the feet, and the accuracy to be a very good NFL QB. Playing with that really bad team did not help him but he did not look very composed last year. But I think by season's end Alex Smith will develop into a decent QB with a bright future.

I don't think you can tell a huge amount about a QB based upon his first year(unless you can tell that hes great becaues he has a great first year). Therefore, my rankings of these QBs have not changed one bit. I would never drop my ranking of a QB based upon his first year. So its still Smith for me.

:goodposting: I don't understand the love for Smith. He was the #1 overall pick, but that was in what was considered a weak draft class for QB's and he went onto a team that is in as much disarray as any right now with a little talent around him as possible. Also, while I agree that a QB's first year is not necessarily indicative of his overall NFL potential, to say that you should ignore it seems silly.

Even after reading this thread I still feel like I'm searching for a solid answer to my question...

I easily voted Charlie Frye, then after moving on to other discussions began to realize I'm not sure why I voted Charlie Frye...I guess I like his opportunity, and from what I understand he looks better than Losman or Smith in live action...but I've barely seen the guy play so I don't know where I got this impression...

Obviously others here like Frye, but why?...what are the specific things about his play that make him a better prospect?
 
Even in dynasty, have to say it comes down to Frye or Smith. Rodgers and Campbell aren't even going to play much, if at all, this year (unless Favre is definitely retiring, which I think he would have done already if he definitely were, but I could be wrong). Frye is in a better situation than Smith with at least some talent to work with, and he showed a little promise last year in his few starts, unlike Smith who looked totally lost.

Most 'Skins fans would tend to disagree with you given that in each of the last two seasons Brunell has suffered injuries that affected his play to the point that he was forced out of the lineup, at least for a game. If Campbell and Rodgers went into the season as backups (with presumably Rodgers backing up Favre), I'd say Campbell has a far better chance of seeing the field than Rodgers does given Favre's history.

 
I voted Rodgers. I thought he was the best entering the draft and none of the others did enough to change my mind. Frye would probably be my second choice. Campbell is a real wild card. I thought he was overrated entering the draft, but he has a good team to work with and should eventually get a shot to start. Smith has looked like a bust from day one.
