The quarterback is the most important position for any football team besides the offensive line.
There are so many on the rise quarterbacks in the NFL today. Look at: Aaron Rodgers, Philip Rivers, Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez and even Matt Ryan. That is what the NFL is going to look like in the next five years when Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, and Brett Favre retire.
Almost every team in the NFL except the Browns, Panthers, Cardinals, and the Bills have a starting quarterback that is "for real.” And all those teams are losing teams with the exception of the Cardinals and Panthers so it shows how important the quarterback is.
This is a list of the top ten quarterbacks to watch in the 2010 NFL season.
Hopefully Trent Williams can shore up that offensive line or else Donovan McNabb is going to wish he were an Eagle.
The Redskins had one of the most horrendous offensive lines in the NFL and if they can't block for McNabb than I think it will be McNabb's last season in the NFL. But, McNabb is still one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL and is extremely consistent day in and day out.
He barely made this list, but like I said he will only succeed if his line blocks. I think he will have at least 20 touchdowns and throw 8 to 12 interceptions.
Yes, I know. Mark Sanchez had one of the worst quarterback ratings in 2009 throwing 12 touchdowns and 20 interceptions, but A) he was a rookie and B) he can win.
Sanchez is destined to have a breakout season in 2010 with a great offensive line and good weapons to work with and the addition of Santonio Holmes gives him a good target.
I think Sanchez is the best young quarterback in the NFL. I think he will throw at least 22 touchdowns and throw between 10 to 18 interceptions.
I think Tom Brady's "elite" days are over, but he is still one of the top-notch quarterbacks in the NFL.
Brady posted up good numbers in 2009 after suffering a big knee injury in 2008. I think Brady won't be as good because: Randy Moss is getting older, Wes Welker's knee is in question, the offensive line is aging, and Tom Brady is getting older.
Brady will still have a good season in 2010 and the Patriots will still be playoff contenders. I think Brady will throw at least 25 touchdowns and throw 12 to 15 interceptions.
Yes, Brett Favre is coming back—just not till after training camp.
Brett Favre had probably his best season as a pro in 2009 throwing 33 touchdowns and only a whopping seven interceptions at the age of 40. Favre is by far the most fun player to watch in the NFL just because he is really old and he can still play outstanding football.
I don’t think Favre will have a season like 2009, but he will still perform and have a good season. I think Favre will throw somewhere between 22 to 28 touchdowns and throw at least 12 interceptions.
Tony Romo is one of the most unpredictable players in the NFL. You never know what you are going to get out of him.
It always seems that Romo is getting criticized and I am not sure why because I think he is one heck of a quarterback.
Despite not making the Super Bowl, Tony Romo can still win games and post up simply outstanding numbers in the NFL. I think Romo will throw at least 27 touchdowns and throw between 10 to 18 interceptions.
Philip Rivers just seems to get better and better every single year, but he chokes in the playoffs every year.
Rivers had arguably his best season in 2009, but it wasn't enough to get to the Super Bowl. Every so called "expert" from ESPN and NFL Network have been predicting the Chargers to win the Super Bowl for the past few years, but it has never happened and I don't think it will.
But, the Chargers have a heck of a quarterback leading the team. I think Rivers will be an MVP candidate and throw 30 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Drew Brees is on top of the world right now. Is it possible that Brees and the Saints will have a Super Bowl hangover? I think that Brees will have an outstanding season again, but I don't think the Saints will be super in 2010.
Brees is a winner, role model, outstanding quarterback, and most of all an outstanding leader. I think Brees will definitely compete in the playoffs and be a major MVP candidate. Look for Brees to throw at least 30 touchdowns and throw 9 to 12 interceptions.
Matt Shaub finally got a full 16 games to show what he can do and finally had a breakout season.
Shaub threw more passing yards than any quarterback in the NFL and threw 29 touchdown passes. I think his team has the tools to finally become playoff contenders with hot offensive players, Shaub and Andre Johnson, and a defense led by Mario Williams and Demeco Ryans.
Look for the Texans to make a big playoff push and look for Matt Shaub's name to be in MVP voting polls. Shaub will throw at least 28 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
Peyton Manning has dominated this league for the past decade and has shown no signs of stopping.
There is concern but not that much. While he is going to be 34 years old, age doesn’t really affect quarterbacks, just look at Brett Favre. Manning will definitely be an MVP candidate again and his team will be Super Bowl candidates.
I think Manning will throw at least 28 touchdowns and throw 10 to 15 interceptions.
Yes, Aaron Rodgers will be the best quarterback in the 2010 season leading a new young team.
Rodgers had an outstanding 2009 season throwing 30 touchdowns, only 7 interceptions, and almost 4500 yards. Rodgers has really proved that he can be better than Brett Favre.
I think Rodgers and the Packers have a real shot at making the Super Bowl and Aaron Rodgers has a chance to win MVP. Look for Rodgers to throw at least 30 touchdowns and throw 8 to 10 interceptions.
