The numbers say Tom Brady no longer is a top-five quarterback. Brady, meanwhile, says only one number matters: the score. All of which is to say, the status of the New England Patriots star is up for discussion. Where does the three-time Super Bowl champion rank among the NFL's signal-callers today?

Giants sign Josh Freeman

Eli Manning's hold on the Giants' starting quarterback position just got a little less secure. The Giants have agreed to a deal with former Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman to be Manning's backup, but given Manning's poor performance last season -- only 16 touchdowns against 27 interceptions -- and recent ankle surgery, this signing might be more than just insurance in case Manning goes down. Freeman has struggled in his career after a hot start, but if Manning starts this season off with a bushel of interceptions, he could find himself with an opportunity to restart his career.

When will Giants finally win?

They lost by only six -- and after four straight defeats by two-plus touchdowns, it's a step. They also had the ball with a chance to win in the last three minutes. But the New York Giants still couldn't get in the win column, with an Eli Manning interception against the Chicago Bears dooming Gotham's team to a 27-21 loss and an 0-6 start. When will the Giants finally get a victory? Should they even try to win anymore?
