Quote:
(The list is based off projected starting quarterbacks for 2015.)

32. Matt Cassel, Bills

Put EJ Manuel or Tyrod Taylor here if you want. Whatever—you get the idea.

31. Robert Griffin III, Washington

His mobility is not what it once was. That’s an issue, as he has mountains to climb to improve his mechanics and field-reading.

30. Marcus Mariota, Titans

28. Brian Hoyer, Texans

Plays well on the move. But appears to be one of those guys defenses figure out the more they see of him on tape.

27. Geno Smith, Jets

Bad decision-making has been his undoing. That can be corrected. And if it is, he has the pocket toughness to be a top-16 starting quarterback.

26. Jameis Winston, Buccaneers

He’s TBD, of course. But the necessary skills appear to be there.

25. Blake Bortles, Jaguars

Much better athlete than we realize. Very possible he jumps 10 or more spots on this list in 2016.

24. Nick Foles, Rams

Has no special traits and can be too methodical at times. But that doesn’t mean he can’t oversee a ball control offense like St. Louis.

23. Teddy Bridgewater, Vikings

Was tightly managed last season before showing extremely encouraging signs down the stretch. The Vikings think they have their guy. Loosen the leash and let’s find out.

22. Sam Bradford, Eagles

He’s almost impossible to critique given his injury woes. But if healthy (huge if) he’s a snappy, accurate passer fit for a spread scheme.

21. Colin Kaepernick, 49ers

Raw tools are startling, but so are a lot of his decisions. There are also mechanical flaws.

20. Andy Dalton, Bengals

Outstanding before the snap but can be a total crapshoot after it.

19. Derek Carr, Raiders

Have to see how he does with the training wheels off, but skill-wise, it appears the Raiders have finally (finally!) found their franchise QB.

18. Alex Smith, Chiefs

Underrated mobility adds a dimension to a QB who operates under defined reads and who attempts safe throws almost exclusively.

17. Jay Cutler, Bears

Mistakes and leadership are problems, but there’s nothing a coach can’t ask him to do on the field.

16. Cam Newton, Panthers

A rare physical specimen who can make the “Wow!” throw. Unfortunately, it’s not always a good “Wow!”

15. Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins

An underappreciated athlete and good pure passer who has progressed every year in his career.

14. Carson Palmer, Cardinals

Could be lethal in Year 3 under Bruce Arians, especially given the personnel improvements around him.

13. Matthew Stafford, Lions

Owner of the best raw arm in the game, and he became more disciplined last season.

12. Russell Wilson, Seahawks

Possesses unique skills that defensive coordinators hate to scheme against. But also has limitations that an offensive coordinator has to scheme around. Having Marshawn Lynch and a legendary defense makes that easier.

11. Eli Manning, Giants

Certified field general with the willingness and ability to spot tight windows and thread the ball through.

10. Tony Romo, Cowboys

Playing behind the league’s best O-line has allowed him to polish many areas of his once inconsistent game.

9. Matt Ryan, Falcons

Newfound ability to play on the move could catapult him higher on this list, especially in Kyle Shanahan’s system.

8. Joe Flacco, Ravens

Maybe the strongest arm in the NFL (yes, arm strength matters), and he’s used it aptly in multiple schemes in recent years. It’s still incredible how little talk there is about his 2012 playoff run, which is probably the best ever.

7. Drew Brees, Saints

Physical skills are starting to wane, but being arguably the top pure progression passer in the league can obscure that.

6. Philip Rivers, Chargers

Outstanding on three-step, five-step and seven-step dropbacks. There’s little more a coach could ask for.

5. Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers

Has evolved from a randomized, talent-based quarterback to a fully cerebral field general. And the talent’s still there.

4. Peyton Manning, Broncos

Don’t let back-to-back ugly postseason losses (Colts last year, Seahawks the year before) overshadow back-to-back seasons of daunting statistics. Arm strength has never been his game; field command, fundamentals and IQ have. Those are all still fully intact.

3. Andrew Luck, Colts

Has a chance to one day reach the All-Time Mt. Rushmore, right up there with Brady, Montana and whoever else you have. Right now, he’s already the best play-extending pocket passer in the game, by far.

2. Aaron Rodgers, Packers

The most physically gifted passer in the league can also beat you with his brain.

1. Tom Brady, Patriots

No player of this era has done more with less. Talk to coaches around the league and they’ll tell you that however much command you think Brady has over that offense, triple it, and that’s about the actual amount.

Cutler way too close to top 10 imo and switch brady and rodgers. rodgers is the best in the game right now hands down.

29. Josh McCown, Browns

Better athlete than appears and he has the ability to play big in the pocket. Problem is, he’s only shown it as a backup fill-in, not a starter leading the offense.




Precum, stop trolling so badly. luck is easily a top 5.

my top 5 now
rodgers
brady
big ben
luck
Brees

luck might be a top 3 next season brees might drop out of my 5 too.

texans had all the pieces at one point and schaub killed them when he almost looked like he could be decent at one point.. now foster is accumulating miles, AJ is out, clowney turned out to be a real clown and watt might be wasting his talents on a mediocre team.
