AFC North fans, I have an interesting question for you this week.
In the latest version of "Take Your Pick," rank the five potential starting quarterbacks in the AFC North.
Your choices are Ben Roethlisberger of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer, Joe Flacco of the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns signal-callers Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn.
It's an interesting group of passers with different styles. Roethlisberger is a consummate winner (two rings) who doesn't put up gaudy statistics. Palmer is the prototype who was considered elite at his position until recent injuries hurt his stock. Flacco is the young up and comer who led the Ravens to the AFC title game as a rookie, while Anderson and Quinn could battle for the starting job in Cleveland.
There are four Pro Bowls between them. Palmer has two, while Roethlisberger and Anderson both have one Pro Bowl appearance each.
So let's grade the AFC North QBs as it stands today from No. 1 to No. 5.
Take your pick.
