So far it's safe to say that 2011 has been the year of the quarterback. We've seen better quarterback play this year that we've seen...maybe ever?
The star power at the quarterback position this year is incredible, even without Peyton Manning.
Even the rookie quarterbacks—who usually aren't supposed to make big splashes in the league—have stepped up and given us reasons to be excited about them, despite the fact that they had a very short length of time to prepare due to the lockout.
It is true: the league has turned into a passing league. No longer is it possible to just run the ball up the gut and expect to win. If you want to develop a dynasty, you need a reliable signal-caller that can throw for around 4,000 yards a season.
With that being said, who are truly the best of the best this year? Who constitutes the group of quarterbacks that have played above and beyond the norm of NFL? Who are considered the elite QBs?
It was hard to pick just 10 quarterbacks, considering how many good ones there are, but this is what it should look like.
