Football is back! Well, kind of. As training camps across the country begin to take shape, one’s mind can only wonder and get excited about the upcoming season. Football is widely considered as the most popular sport in America and Sunday’s during the fall have become a day for religion, beer, and football. With that, I thought it was only fitting to get you guys ready for the upcoming season by ranking all 32 NFL starting QBs. It is important to note, however, that some teams are currently hosting a QB competition, so I will do my best to try to predict who each team’s starter will be come week 1. So sit back, grab a bag of chips and a cold drink, and enjoy the show!
The Bottom 10
32. Eli Manning – New York Giants
31. Josh Rosen – Miami Dolphins
30. Dwayne Haskins – Washington Redskins
The reason being, he is a rookie and I do not think he will fit well in the Redskins offensive system. I do think Haskins is a hell of an athlete however and feel that he has the potential to be special eventually, it just won’t come right away.
29. Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals
Johnny Football 2.0
28. Joe Flacco – Denver Broncos
Is he elite?
27. Andy Dalton – Cincinnati Bengals
The most average QB of all time.
26. Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens
Great players step up when the pressure and lights are shining the brightest. For Lamar Jackson however, this could not be further from the truth. After an above-average regular season, Jackson put on one of the worst home postseason performances I have ever seen and for that reason, I’m out.
25. Sam Darnold – New York Jets
24. Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings
Probably the most overrated QB in the NFL.
23. Derek Carr – Oakland Raiders
Will AB and DC jell?? I guess we will just have to wait and see.
The Mid Tier
22. Marcus Mariota – Tennesse Titans
21. Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills
Dude looks great in shorts.
20. Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I expected so much more from Jameis coming out of college. Truly a shame.
19. Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams
Put a below-average defense in front of Jared Goff, he’ll torch ya. Put a sub-par defense in front of him, he’ll play up to standard. But put a GOOD defense in front of him, and he’ll look like the backup QB of a high school varsity team looking to make states.
18. Jimmy Garoppolo – San Fransisco 49ers
17. Mathew Stafford – Detroit Lions
I sometimes find myself laughing over the ridiculous amount of money that Matthew Stafford makes on a yearly basis. There are certain elite players in the NFL that deserve this type of money (5 yrs / $135,000,000) and Mathew Stafford is not one of them.
16. Nick Foles – Jacksonville Jaguars
I’ll love you forever BDN.
The top 15
15. Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns
I woke up feeling dangerous about this prediction.
14. Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears
Mitchell Trubisky is a Chicagoans dream. He is athletic as heck, can sling the pigskin like it is a Thanksgiving turkey, and has a personality that was born to be in Chicago. The Bears found a true gem with this star in the making.
13. Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys
12. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers
Some people may not know that Big Ben actually led the league in passing last season. However, father time is catching up to him and without AB as his main target anymore, it is only fair to expect his offensive numbers to take some sort of hit.
11. Cam Newton – Carolina Panthers
Cam Newton has all the talent in the world, but he is not going to make my top 10 until he learns how to mature a little.
10. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons
9. Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans
The Deshaun Watson/DeAndre Hopkins combo may be my favorite in the NFL.
8. Philip Rivers – LA Chargers
Philip Rivers could mess around and win the MVP this season.
7. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks
When all is said and done, could Russel Wilson go down as the greatest dual-threat QB of all time?
6. Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles
Carson Wentz is finally fully healthy again. All I can say is, watch out NFL.
5. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs
*Record scratches and complete silences ensues* Listen guys, I know to put Patty Mahomes this low on the list is going to piss a lot of you off, but just hear me out. Patrick Mahomes has had ONE good season and yet, people are already ready to claim him as the best QB to ever live. Don’t get me wrong, the kid was born with a cannon for an arm and does things on Sunday’s that I’ve never seen before, but I feel that we should all just pump the breaks a little bit. Let’s see if he can duplicate his MVP season and continue to live up to this almost unattainable hype that has been placed upon him.
4. Andrew Luck – Indianapolis Colts
Andrew Luck is as talented and pure a pocket passer as I have ever seen.
3. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints
It was pass interference. No doubt.
2. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
Like a good neighbor, Aaron Rodgers is there.
1. Tom Brady – New England Patriots
Six. Nuff said.
