FA/Trade QB Options - The Numbers

I'm surprised no one has bothered to actually compare the numbers for the QBs we are rumored to be considering.

Below (after the jump) you will find a chart comparing John Skelton, Kevin Kolb, Marc Bulger, Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselbeck, Kyle Orton, and Derek Anderson in a multitude of stats.  From age, height, weight to their completion percentages, yards per pass attempt, touchdowns, interceptions, sacks, ratings etc.. and not just for their careers but for their most recent playing year as well (for example, Bulger would not have 2010 numbers so I used his 2009 numbers).

I marked the worst in each category in red, and the best in each category in green.
I think you might be surprised by some of the findings.

So what do you think, does it change your opinion of any of these possible future Arizona Cardinals QBs?
I'll admit, I was surprised at Carson Palmer's numbers.

Feel free to comment with another player and their numbers and I'll add them in.
