In an attempt to educate the masses, I created a list of the 10 quarterbacks who were lucky to start in the NFL last year according to depth charts at the time of this article.
Much to my chagrin and utter amazement, people bashed me.
Here's a link to last year's list, or you can take a quick look at last year's list below:
- Jake Delhomme: People actually defended this guy.
- Kyle Orton: I was wrong. I admit it. He played well.
- Trent Edwards: That was too easy.
- Jay Cutler: It was only a matter of time until his true colors shined in the NFC Championship. He nearly landed on the list again, but the other quarterbacks were just too bad.
- Matt Moore: Layup.
- Matt Cassel: I was off on this one, too.
- Jason Campbell: I had everyone upset about this selection. Fortunately there are others more deserving this year, but he is still lucky.
- Matt Hasselbeck: He's back again.
- Matt Leinart: His loyalists looked foolish
- Sam Bradford: I thought he should have started the season on the bench. As it turns out, he was ready and I was wrong.
Once again, the NFL has enough bad signal callers to easily make a list of 10. In fact, I could have stretched this one out to about 13.
Those who just missed out include: Tarvaris Jackson, Jason Campbell and Jay Cutler.
