Due to some silly, silly comments here, I have decided to rank the top 5 starting Quarterbacks in the NFL from THIS YEAR. Of course Peyton Manning would be on this list, had he not been injured and missed the entire season.
1. Aaron Rodgers- Broke the record for highest QB rating in a season. With little to no running game. Turnovers from his defence gave him short fields to work with, and increased his touchdowns/attempt.
1a. Drew Brees- What record didn't he break this year? Well, ya there's QB rating. But other than that? Not many quarterbacks can match his precision. Doesn't have much star power to work with.
3. Tom Brady- Over 5000 yards, and carried a team, with one of the worst defenses in the NFL, to a 13-3 record, as well as the AFC's number one seed.
4. Matthew Stafford- Finally playing a full season, Matt Stafford shows why he was the number 1 pick a few years ago. Absolutely blew up, throwing for over 5000 yards, and leading the Lions to their first playoff berth in over a decade.
5. Eli Manning- Looked inconsistent at times, but didn't have much help around him. Yes, Nicks and Cruz are elite receivers, but they were hampered by injuries and drops all season. Not much of a run game or defense to show of, but still made the playoffs.
