NFL Playoffs: Ranking the Remaining Playoff Quarterbacks

Boomer EsiasonSpecial ContributorJanuary 16, 2013

The remaining teams in the NFL Playoffs are one win away from the Super Bowl. Getting to this point usually requires great play from the quarterback position, and that has held true for the teams playing in the NFC and AFC Championship games.

This week for Behind the Mic on Bleacher Report, Boomer Esiason takes the time to rank the quarterbacks who still have a chance at hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. 

Joe Flacco declared himself elite at the start of the season, but how good is he compared to the other quarterbacks left in the playoffs?

Matt Ryan finally got that elusive first playoff victory. Is that enough to get him to the top of Boomer's rankings?

Where does second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick fit into Boomer's list after his record-breaking performance vs. the Packers?

Check out the video above to get Boomer's take on where each playoff quarterback ranks, and don't forget to let us know how your rankings compare in the comments section below.
