It may be hard to believe, but NFL fans currently are witnessing a Golden Age for NFL quarterbacks.
Sunday’s showdown between the Denver Broncos and New England Patriots certainly serves as a reminder, as future Hall of Famers Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will square off for the 16th time in their illustrious careers.
Players like Brady, Manning and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees seemingly have been at the top of their game forever — all three have been in the top 10 in passing every year (when healthy) since 2005.
Yet they’re not the only ones at the top of the QB pile. Aaron Rodgers took over the Green Bay Packers’ starting job in 2008 and hasn’t looked back, putting up consistently stellar numbers to thrust his name into the elite QB conversation. And then there’s Andrew Luck, who is fast emerging as the heir apparent to Brady, Manning and Brees.
So who’s the best in the game today? Is it the recent record-setter or the one with the most Super Bowl rings? Is its Brees or Rodgers, or does the crown go to young Luck? Cast your vote in the poll below.
