Those guys, they just have the "it" factor. They can do the job, but there's just that something extra, an intangible, that just makes them stand out. Kyle Allen may very well have "it". Still early to be sure, though, because time either exposes it or erases it.
Darn you straight to heck.
I cannot darn you to heck any more strongly for what you're forcing me to point out.
Someone literally just posted the other day a reminder thread of the greatest collapse and most epic comeback in the history of the Super Bowl.
The qb at the helm for the winning team on the comeback side was Brady.
If you are going to classify the qb who led the greatest comeback in the history of the most important game as a game manager and not a playmaker, I feel like the term loses all relevant meaning. I despise Brady but am forced to point out that if you don't call the qb who has that feat on his resume a playmaker, then realistically no one has the right to that term or the term is meaningless and you're assigning it arbitrarily.
In particular I'm perplexed that you would put Rodgers on one list and Brady on the other. Aside from Rodgers greater mobility, what skill does he posses that Brady does not? Are you suggesting that being a playmaker is directly tied to athleticism that allows greater physical mobility and thus elusiveness that typical qb's do not possess? The presence of Manning on your playmaker list clearly says no, which leaves me scratching my head at the basis on which some qb's are on one list, some on the other.
Either way, I'm highly mildly annoyed at you for forcing me to bring up Brady's comeback against Atlanta in the interest of intellectual honesty.
