There’s an interesting contrast between the eight quarterbacks who are still alive in the 2013 NFL playoffs.
These four (along with RGIII) seem to comprise the future of the quarterback position. Athletic, strong-armed and eager to make a mark.
Three of these four have all but secured busts in Canton, and Rivers’ career stats are nothing short of impressive. Each of this quartet’s career is closer to the end than the beginning and the realization that this may be their last best shot is setting in.
That being said, I actually found it much more difficult to rank the younger group in this list. I think that’s because we’ve yet to see the best they’ve got to offer. With none being older than 26, their career arcs are only moving up.
Ranking Criteria: This list was compiled with numerous factors considered. Chief among them were championships, wins and losses, statistics and in several instances, potential.
