The reason I put Dalton ahead of Kap as of today is because I feel that Dalton has had a more productive career so far, playoffs aside. Dalton has started 48 games, while Kap has started 23 up to this season. Dalton has 30 WINS as a starting QB while Kap has only played in 32 games total since being drafted. I would say that Cincinnati has benefited more from Dalton that SF has from Kap up to this point, not just focusing on Playoff success.
Not saying that I think Dalton is necessarily better than Kap and if I had to draft today I would take Kap 10 times out of 10. But since the 2011 Draft, you can make the argument that Dalton has been more valuable to the Bengals since 2011.
can you make a more foolish statement? the playoffs is where you earn your keep. in a re-draft scenario its a simple pick the best players. you dont pick the guy you think is less talented but played a few more games and got a few more stats because of it.
Like I said, "Re-Draft" was probably not the best use of terminoology even though that was the original intention of the list, but the data that I used works best for ranking productivity in a 3 year span without regards to the future...not necessarily a redraft.
And yes I understand the importance of playoff success but didn't factor it in into my rankings too much because when you draft a rookie QB you're hoping that they can get you into the playoffs which is something Dalton has done the last two years starting all 16 games, while Kap can only be credited with "leading" the 49ers to 1 playoff appearance as a full time starter.
I'm not saying my list is flawless, this was just something I thought I would do for fun and hoped it would create some interesting debates and give other people the idea of doing their own lists. It's just an offseason post, not to be taken too seriously. But I do appreciate your comments, you have made some valid points and I don't disagree with you.
As far as Acho, I had him clustered in the 32-40 range and slid him in there. 66 tackles and 12 sacks in 35 games is decent especially when you consider he was taken with the 103rd pick.
