Ron Jaworski Ranks Matthew Stafford As 14th Best QB In NFL

ESPN's Ron Jaworski has put together a list of his top 30 quarterbacks in the NFL. Each day on ESPN, a new spot on the list is revealed, and Matthew Stafford's name came up on Wednesday when Jaworski's 14th best quarterback in the league was unveiled.

While that seems pretty low considering what Stafford accomplished last season, let's take a look at Jaworski's explanation before overreacting. Via MLive:

"Another full season with similar production, and there's no question Stafford is a top 10 quarterback," Jaworski said on "Jaws' QB Countdown" series, which airs on the network's various shows. "He's an elite arm talent. I just need to see durability and performance over a longer period of time."

Honestly, I don't have a huge issue with this. Strictly based on what he did on the field last season and his potential going forward, there's no doubt Stafford is at least in the top 10 at quarterback. Because of his injury issues, though, some people are still skeptical. I personally disagree with ranking him 14th considering that is pretty low, but I can see where Jaworski is coming from. For some people, they need to see another solid, injury-free season out of Stafford.

Let's hope Stafford does repeat 2011 in terms of playing all 16 games and putting up big numbers. If he does, I would bet on him proving a lot of his doubters wrong in the process.
