Who has been the fourth best QB in the AFC this Century?

Recommended Posts

Brady, Manning and Rothlisberger have dominated the QB position in the AFC in an insane way this century. Who is the fourth best. Sad to say even on one seasons experience, i think the strongest argument can be made for Pat Mahomes.

Rivers

I can go with this.  Would you say his career has been a disappointment due to the lack of team successes?

Luck. Minus the injuries, he was well on his way

Question in intended to be about actual results , not potential.  I think Rivers is the right answer.

This is a poor spin on the NFL 💯 celebration. Was this question even dreamed of in 1938? Of course not.

Rivers for sure. Luck comes after him, then after that I guess its Maholmes? After that I guess its Flacco?

I would go with this

 

Possible debate: Alex Smith, but I think Rivers is the better QB and Smith had the luck to play for the better regular-season coach and team

Rivers

Luck

Flacco

 

in that order I'd say.........that's 40% of AFC teams that had some degree of stability(or in the Broncos case a brief run of dominance) at the position during those 19 seasons.

 

I expect that % to be much higher over the next 20 years..........it's getting easier to play the position and the incoming talent level has been high in recent years and the salaries are making it worthwhile for players on the fence about baseball/football to choose football.

Yeah it’s Rivers. 

 

Or Brees as Tuesday just said.

Ah.  I missed the question.  He started in the AFC, does that count?

He would probably crack the top 15 AFC QB's for the period for his two excellent seasons in SD at a time when QB'ing was a lot harder.

I agree with this, unless you project Mahomes after 17 games as a starter, but won't quibble with anyone who says that is too soon.  

With Luck's retirement and the seeming demise of Cam Newton (NFC I know) It really shows how hard it is too have a QB that really "succeeds" the way fans would like them too. I would venture to guess that all of Rivers', Luck's and Flacco's fans are actually fairly disappointed with the careers, even while respecting their skills.

There is that. When you look at it, the AFC has had a pretty poor run of QBs the last 20 years.

I am not sure this is true.  Who would list as the top 4 QB;s in the NFC this century.

4. Rivers

5. Luck

6. Carson Palmer

 

Honorable mention: Cutler, Fitzpatrick, Pennington, McNair

Maybe Matt Schaub as honorable mention for a few seasons

Carson Palmer's deserves a mention.  Good call.
