It’s officially list season. With no offseason workouts or practices to report upon, and nothing on the NFL schedule for at least a couple months, it’s officially Reach For Content season.
And what better way to drum up some content than by ranking some players? Everyone loves a good debate and nothing gets more heated than ranking the best quarterbacks in the NFL. Remember how angry you’d get when Matthew Stafford was left off of lists like this entirely? Well, time to piss off some Eagles, Raiders and Vikings fans, because, spoiler alert, no Carson Wentz, Derek Carr or Kirk Cousins on this year’s list.
This week on the PODcast, we ranked who we collectively believed to be the top 10 quarterbacks in the NFL at this very moment. Forget their surrounding cast, forget the scheme they play in. We’re talking about the 10 most talented quarterbacks in the league at this point in their respective careers.
To come up with our master list, we had eight members of the Pride of Detroit staff—myself, Hamza Baccouche, Ryan Mathews, John Whiticar, Jerry Mallory, Mansur Shaheen, Chris Perfett, and Alex Reno—list their top 10, and then averaged them all out.
So what did we come up with? Where is Matthew Stafford on our list? Who are the top 10 quarterbacks of 2020? You’re going to have to listen to this week’s episode to find out:
