Football Betting Review: Ranking the NFL’s Quarterbacks, 1-32
Now that the NFL’s training camps are approaching, it’s time online betting fans think about how the various teams stack up at the quarterback position.
#32 Matt Cassel (or EJ Manuel or Tyrod Taylor)
Or whoever the Bills send out there.
#31 Robert Griffin III
Less mobility combined with field reading and mechanics that are still poor.
#30 Marcus Mariota
Sure, he’s accurate, but he’s about to get clobbered.
#29 Josh McCown
Yes, he’s athletic and he can stand in the pocket. But he’s never led an offense through a season.
#28 Brian Hoyer
He can throw well on the run, but he’s easy to figure out when you watch the tape.
#27 Geno Smith
His decision making has been awful. It’s possible to fix, but he still needs pocket toughness too.
#26 Jameis Winston
He has the skills, but he has to show that he can use them in the NFL.
#25 Blake Bortles
He’s a terrific athlete and could jump up this list if the Jacksonville Jaguars can block.
#24 Nick Foles
Very methodical, but he could manage a ball control scheme well.
#23 Teddy Bridgewater
What will he do when the Vikings open up the offense?
#22 Sam Bradford
A real wild card given all of his knee woes. He does have the accuracy for a spread scheme.
#21 Colin Kaepernick
Decision making is a concern, but he has the physical tools for the position.
#20 Andy Dalton
Just spin that roulette wheel.
#19 Alex Smith
He’s more mobile than you think, but he is a game manager.
#18 Derek Carr
Could the Raiders have found their first franchise quarterback since Rich Gannon…or Jim Plunkett?
#17 Jay Cutler
On the field his gifts are significant. However, he makes mistakes by the bushel, and he’s not a leader.
#16 Ryan Tannehill
A terrific pure passer and more athletic than you might think.
#15 Cam Newton
He can make amazing throws – for both teams.
#14 Carson Palmer
If he can return to his 2014 form, watch out.
#13 Matthew Stafford
No one has a better arm, and he’s finally learning discipline.
#12 Russell Wilson
He has unique skills … And unique limitations.
#11 Matt Ryan
He’s finally playing well on the move, but he still has a reputation for losing in the playoffs.
#10 Eli Manning
He has the skins on the wall as a field general, and he can put balls through small windows.
#9 Joe Flacco
He might have the league’s strongest arm, and his playoff run in 2012 was simply incredible.
#8 Tony Romo
He’s become much more consistent and has an amazing line in front of him.
#7 Drew Brees
The results haven’t been there, and his physical skills are on the decline, but no one is a better pure porgression passer.
#6 Philip Rivers
No one looks better dropping back and passing from the pocket.
#5 Ben Roethlisberger
He’s still talented, and now he knows how to lead a team down the field.
#4 Peyton Manning
His game has always been more cerebral, but his skills are still all there.
#3 Aaron Rodgers
He’s physically gifted and also highly intelligent.
#2 Andrew Luck
No one extends plays in the pocket better.
#1 Tom Brady
Given the lack of talent that’s been around him, no quarterback has done more in this era.
