What's wrong with this QB list?

Matt Ryan, Alex Smith, Drew Brees, Matt Schaub, Derek Anderson, Tom Brady ...

What's wrong with this list?

Nothing. Those six quarterbacks lead the NFL in red zone passing, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

Sample sizes are a bit small this early in the season, but quarterbacks should operate efficiently inside the opponents' 20-yard line. Those with at least five attempts in the red zone have thrown 80 touchdown passes and 15 interceptions to this point in the season.

The top 17 quarterbacks on the list have thrown 53 touchdown passes without an interception. The bottom 15 on the list have 27 touchdowns with 15 interceptions.
