These rankings are purely based on who at this very moment I would rather have under center for my team.
1) Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints – Brees, the former Super Bowl MVP, has a triple-digit career postseason passer rating. He also set an NFL completion percentage record of 74.4% this past year. What more could you want? He has been there and done that.
2) Tom Brady, New England Patriots – Nobody has ever played Quarterback in more Super Bowls than Brady and even in his 40’s we have seen no signs of significant slippage. Brady’s problem is we can’t say the same for Rob Gronkowski and the rest of the Patriots.
3) Andrew Luck, Indianapolis Colts – Luck is healthy and when healthy he is as good as anyone there is. He has playoff experience and is playing behind a dominant offensive line. Luck is a very dangerous man in any game he plays.
4) Nick Foles, Philadelphia Eagles – This ranking is based off intangibles and Foles has those in spades! Last years magical run has been followed up by another magical run. I expect that magical run to end in New Orleans, but hey, you never know!
5) Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs – Hard to rate Mahomes with no playoff experience but if he is as good in the playoffs as he was in the regular season, he is going to be something special.
6) Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers – Rivers was not great at the end of the regular season and he was underwhelming in the Wild Card win over Baltimore, but if he can get hot he could find himself in the Super Bowl, because the Chargers are a complete team.
7) Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys – Prescott is tough and he is a winner, and on top of all that he has played well in limited playoff experience.
8) Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams – Goff sticks out like a sore thumb on this list! Hopefully, he can do something against Dallas to change my mind.
