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.

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.

  • 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 first-team offense or the backups. If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]
