A few days ago, I wrote an article on the 10th through 6th ranked quarterbacks in the NFL. They are considered to be amazing quarterbacks, but the quarterbacks in this article are the top 5 quarterbacks, and are considered the elite. People will disagree with my rankings, but nobody can take away from how good this top quarterbacks really are.
5: Matt Ryan
Ryan makes the list, mainly, because of this season. He played excellently and had few sour moments. He would be higher on the list if he had held on to the lead in the Super Bowl. However, do not count Ryan out from winning a ring. The Falcons are a good team, and have a solid foundation to build a championship machine for years to come. It is only time before Ryan gets a turn to hold the Lombardi.
4: Ben Roethlisberger
Talking about holding the Lombardi, this quarterback has held it twice, and almost a third. Some might think Big Ben should be higher on this list, seeing how he almost made it to another Super Bowl and that his statistics has been amazing. The reason he is in fourth (which is still good) is because he has not made it to the big game for a while, and he has Bell and Brown on his offense. This will make any quarterback look great.
3: Drew Brees
Brees is not getting any younger, and father time is undefeated. However, that does not mean that he does not have a few seasons left in him. Brees is by far one of the most statistically impressive quarterbacks of all time. He continues to throw over 5,000 yards, and passes for a lot of touchdowns. Brees has won the Super Bowl once, but if he could win it a second time, he might move up to second place.
2: Aaron Rodgers
Rodgers is probably the most talented quarterback on this list. You can make a case for any of these quarterbacks, but Rodgers has shown the sports world that all you need to do is r-e-l-a-x. He has plenty of seasons left in the tank to win another ring or two, and that will improve his standing with quarterbacks of all time, but it would take a lot to overcome this next quarterback.
1: Tom Brady
By far, the most accomplished, and successful quarterbacks of all time. I have said previously that Brady is the best of all time. Whether you like Brady or not, he has proven that he is a winner, and that he has done what no quarterback has done before. Brady outsmarts defenses and can achieve greatness with anyone. It is very unlikely that anyone on this list will be ranked number one, except for Tom Brady.
Well, there is the 5th through 1st ranked quarterbacks in the league, fellow Sports Reaction’ists, and remember, be the best sports fan you can possibly be.
