Who is the best quarterback in the NFL? How many times have you debated that question? Arguing who is better between Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and even Drew Brees is enough to start a bar fight.

So who is the best quarterback in the NFL? Where does Cam Newton rate? How about Tim Tebow? What about your team's quarterback?

To answer these questions, we've determined what makes up a great quarterback and which players best represent those traits. The quest comes as part of the B/R NFL 1,000. The new series offers an in-depth look at every position in the NFL, breaking down players' skills in a way never before seen on the Internet.

BR 1,000 rankings don't assess who had the best year or even who has the most potential. Rather players—in this case, quarterbacks—are judged on their current skills and mechanics, based on film study of the 2011 NFL preseason and regular season only. 

After hours spent scouting every starter and every potential starter, the top 50 quarterbacks have been scored in 10 criteria (here's more on the criteria). In the slides that follow, we'll explain each player's strengths and weaknesses as the final ranking is revealed.
