Year of the Quarterback: Ranking the Projected Starting Field 1 Through 32

Using thorough experimentation and my own calculations, I've answered the burning question: Who is the best starting QB in the NFL

Through the use a very simple method, the quarterbacks will be given a grade, out of 10, in five fundamental professional categories: arm strength, accuracy, mobility, intangibles (character, moxy) and NFL accomplishments (titles, pro bowls, etc). For example, I would grade Michael Vick a 10 in mobility, while his intangibles may lie at a four or five. Also, this is a current scale. The rankings are handed out based on the player the quarterback is today, not tomorrow, not last year.

The grades I am supplying are all debatable and are certainly up for scrutiny. Keep in mind just because one individual may be ranked higher than the other does not mean I necessarily feel that he should be. It is based on the terms of my current system in place (although I do not have much of a gripe with how it turned out).

Don’t forget these are the projected starters for the upcoming season as we stand today. So right now the way I see it, Carson Palmer and Donovan McNabb do not qualify for the list!

So grab some Doritos, pull out your pen and paper and play along. By the time you're done reading this, we'll be that much closer to season's start (hopefully)!
