An early look at the QBs

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.

Tom Brady – His TD total will be down by 10+, and he’s still #1.

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the […]
