Sixteen weeks a year, we get to focus on the NFL's star quarterbacks, including Michael Vick, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez, Matt Cassel and Drew Brees.
None of this can compare to the upcoming Wild Card weekend that is about to unfold in a few days' time.
In a troublesome time in the NFL's new year, 2011 has been the complete opposite of a happy new beginning. Tom Cable has lost his job, Terrell Owens is now starting a new search for yet another home team and Brett Favre is preparing for a teary farewell speech sometime soon after failing to lead the Minnesota Vikings to the playoffs.
If you can look past all of the weekly headlines, however, try and focus on the few players that matter most this week—the quarterbacks.
The best of the best will be on display, and even though Tom Brady and Matt Ryan take a seat and attempt to remain cool, calm and collected while the Wild Card round expires, some extreme passing talent will take the field in the NFL's "do or die" round.
Here's a quick analysis of each quarterback, along with how they might perform on Saturday/Sunday.
