With the bulk of free agency already behind us, I thought it was a good time to take a quick look at the quarterbacks for 2008. I haven’t studied the position in-depth just yet, but here’s an early look.
My initial conclusions on this position are easy to come by. It’s a solid group with a lot of quality, but it’s extremely top-heavy. After the top 10-15 guys, all viable starters this coming year, there’s a massive drop-off. Especially after the top-20 there are a ton of weak options, such as (alphabetically by team): Matt Leinart, Chris Redman, Steve McNair, Trent Edwards, Kyle Orton/Rex Grossman, Brodie Croyle, John Beck/Josh McCown, Tarvaris Jackson, Kellen Clemens, JeMarcus Russell, Alex Smith, and Jeff Garcia.
That said it certainly looks like securing one of the top QBs fairly early will go down as a prudent move in 2008. Here’s an early look.
Tom Brady – His TD total will be down by 10+, and he’s still #1.
Peyton Manning – Anyone ever notice how no one really analyzes Manning? He’s really been above that for a number of years.
