The 2011 NFL season begins on Thursday, September 8th when the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers play the New Orleans Saints. This is the time of year when every NFL fan is optimistic about their team's prospects for the upcoming season. Every fan is wondering whether their team has a realistic shot at the Super Bowl. A good way to answer this question is to analyse who your team has in place at the quarterback position.
There are currently six starting quarterbacks in the NFL who have led their team to victory in the Super Bowl. Will that number increase this season? Any team hoping to contend for a Super Bowl this season must receive elite play from its quarterback. Any team whose quarterback struggles can expect to finish near the bottom of the standings. Quarterback is by far the most important position on any NFL team.
Here is a list of the 32 quarterbacks who are likely to start for their teams on Opening Day in 2011. Their strengths and weaknesses are discussed, along with their prospects for this season. All of the quarterbacks have been ranked in the order in which they would be chosen to start this season. If you feel your team's quarterback is ranked too high or too low, please feel free to tell me why.
