The Bottom Line

 

Rankings:    1. Luck     2. Griffin     3. Wilson     4. Kaepernick     5. Newton

 

The consensus is that Luck remains the can't-miss player of the group. Moon said, "Andrew doesn't have any weaknesses in his game." An NFC general manager added, "Luck should be a Hall of Famer 15 years from now. He took a team that was 2-14 before he arrived and led it to 11 wins in his rookie year. That's a pretty good start."

As for the others, most people interviewed for this story also see greatness in the futures of Griffin and Wilson. Griffin holds a slight edge because he's more dynamic -- "He can run and he's accurate," said Tuck. But Wilson is the safer bet to be more durable and play longer. Kaepernick is the wild card of the group. Many people think his ceiling could be higher than Griffin's if his game develops steadily. Newton, on the other hand, is at a point in his career where he's likely to plateau if the Panthers keep struggling.

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's a big article with paragraphs under each ranking section.  Not posting all of it.  But the experts have spoken.  Newton is the weak link.  Time to move on I guess.  I wonder if Jimmy Clausen is still available.

 

Oh.  They have a " Sportsnation: Cast Your Vote " Not sure if you guys like taking over polls or anything like that.

Even if I take Newton out of the equation. I will take Wilson and Kaep over Luck any and every day. I would also take a healthy RG3 over him.

Although the Colts have changed their offense to better suit Luck. So I think Luck will have a good year. Better than last.

So Cam is an unintelligent, non-durable QB who lacks accuracy (69% vs Seattle), any weapons and any semblance of a sense of urgency despite back to back losing seasons and a HC who is coaching for his job.

 

Seems legit.

I like how Newton is only ahead of RGIII in durability department.  If only RGIII wouldn't of busted his knee last year, Cam would be 5 there too.

Damn and I work so far from any decent sized bridges.  How will I properly leap from a bridge if there's not one readily available.

If I wasn't on my phone I would compare some meaningful stats and likely disprove a lot of these rankings.

Having seen at least 2 games of all of them I'd still take Cam first and Russel second.

If only they would have had a fakest smile category...

Relax, we need Cam to be hated. He is a better QB when he is hated and doubted IMO.

Cam has only stunk at one point....and that was when people felt forced to praise him to start 2012
