When you are a transcendent and mercurially talented quarterback like Aaron Rodgers, issues like quarterback tier rankings from ESPN don’t really mean much because you are always a winner, whether or not you are voted highly. But that doesn’t mean Rodgers would be happy if, after an MVP-winning 2014 season, he found himself ranked as the 10th-best QB in the league, or is considered as a third-tier signal-caller in the NFL. NFL betting fans can find a lot of expected placements (like Green Bay’s Rodgers placed as the No. 1 QB in the top tier), surprising rankings (like a drop for Drew Brees) and debatable positions (like the flat-out fall by Robert Griffin III). According to ESPN, the voters categorized the tiers based on the following elements: • Tier 1 Quarterbacks: Lead their teams to consistent wins and contend for championships, even with not much of a support system to work with. • Tier 2 Quarterbacks: Are not as consistent as those in Tier 1 and often need a good support system to be successful, but are good enough to keep their teams as perennial championship contenders. • Tier 3 Quarterbacks: Starters who need tons of support and are not as good when it comes to compete at the top levels of the game. • Tier 4 Quarterbacks: Unproven starters or young QBs expected by some to improve at some point in their careers or transform to good backup quarterbacks. • Tier 5 Quarterbacks: These are worst of the worst QBs in the league. Barely any voters used this category to rank the current QBs. You can go to ESPN and get all the details for yourself (if you are an ESPN Insider), but for those who are looking to be spared from a lot of reading, video-playing or new subscriptions, here is a short summary of the biggest risers and fallers in the QB Tier Rankings, as per the votes. Biggest Risers: Andrew Luck (Colts), Russell Wilson (Seahawks), Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers) and Tony Romo (Cowboys) Biggest Fallers: Drew Brees (Saints), Peyton Manning (Broncos), Robert Griffin III (Redskins)
