Top 5 Current NFL Quarterbacks
Recently friend of the podcast, Jon Ledyard posed this question on Twitter and received a range of interesting responses. Here is one man’s opinion of the current top five quarterbacks in the NFL. To be clear this is focusing on only the 2018 season:
Tom Brady, New England Patriots – The end is near (god willing) but he still holds the top spot after showing no signs of slowing down in 2017. Brady is still surgical at diagnosing defenses and making opponents pay for trying to blitz him.
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers – Coming off an injury, Rodgers still should have a few prime years left. The combination of his arm strength, intelligence and mobility make him basically impossible to stop.
Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints – This may be the last season for Brees but he still had the look of a top five quarterback down the stretch and in the playoffs season. The deep ball accuracy and aggressiveness remains deadly.
Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks – Turning into a one man offense in Seattle. Wilson is the most effective quarterback in the NFL at using his legs to create big plays both as a runner and a passer. He should only get better but for god’s sake get the man a few people who can block.
Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers – A house of bricks who should still have a few quality years left in the Steelers’ wide open offense.
Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers – Always short on help, Newton continues to will the Panthers offense to production. The hits he has taken are starting to take a toll but he is a MVP caliber (as we know) player when he is healthy and rolling.
Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons – Regressed to the mean a bit last season but wasn’t helped by his offensive coordinator. Ryan remains steadily productive and you can make a reasonable case he belongs in the top five after the past few years.
Three Years From Now?
Let’s avoid mentioning anybody who hasn’t played a snap yet (SORRY SAM) and assume Brees, Brady and Roethlisberger have all retired. A few names to keep an eye on will be Carson Wentz, Deshaun Watson, Andrew Luck (if healthy, of course), Patrick Mahomes, Dak Prescott and Jimmy Garoppolo.

Hoboken Restaurant Of The Week
Hoboken Burrito – Our first delivery in the new place and it did not disappoint. A substantially overstuffed burrito with phenomenal salsa and guac that I passed out immediately after eating. Well done!
