This article covers the top three quarterbacks in the 2009 NFL season.

I will be breaking down each quarterback with statistics from last year.

Peyton Manning (Indianapolis Colts)

I was going back and forth between Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers, but Rivers will not be on this list.

Manning helped his team win nine games in a row last year to get to the playoffs.

In 2008, he had 4,002 yards, 27 touchdowns, and a 95.0 passer rating.

There are plenty of reasons for Manning to be on this list.

Tony Romo (Dallas Cowboys)

In 2009, Tony Romo will not struggle like he did last year.

I think he will throw for 20 touchdowns, along with 10 interceptions.  His passer rating should be 90.0.

I would get him.

Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints)

Last year, Drew Brees failed to get the record for most passing yards in a season by 16 yards.

Brees finished the season with 5,069 yards passing, 34 touchdowns, and a 96.2 passer rating.

This guy is the bomb!

In 2009, he can get you points. I bet you will get close to the championship.

That wraps this up.

The quarterbacks all should do well and get you points. If you get a chance, draft one of these players.
