QB Power Rankings (By Division) 10/2/2012

Updated on October 2, 2012
Could this be Matty Ice's year?
Could this be Matty Ice's year?

So I'm watching the Cowboys and Bears duke it out last night, and I've never seen Tony Romo struggle quite like that. Five interceptions? Really Tony?
And of course the haters all don their ESPN Analyst hats and start saying "He's awful" and "He's the worst QB in the division."
And I thought to myself, well... That's not true. Romo is inconsistent, but is he really worse than rookie RG3? and turnovers? Does the name Michael Vick ring a bell?
So... here is my list, ranking all 32 starting Quarterbacks by their divisions.

The AFC North
1. Joe Flacco. BAL.

2. Ben Roethlisberger. PIT.
3. Andy Dalton. CIN.
4. Brandon Weeden. CLE.

The AFC East
1. Tom Brady. NE.
2. Mark Sanchez. NYJ.
3. Ryan Fitzpatrick. BUF.
4. Ryan Tannehill. MIA.

The AFC South
1. Matt Schaub. HOU.
2. Andrew Luck. IND.
3. Jake Locker. TEN.
4. Blaine Gabbert. JAC.

The AFC West
1. Peyton Manning. DEN.
2. Philip Rivers. SD.
3. Carson Palmer. OAK.
4. Matt Cassel. KC.

The NFC North
1. Aaron Rodgers. GB.
2. Jay Cutler. CHI.
3. Matthew Stafford. DET.
4. Christian Ponder. MIN.

The NFC East
1. Eli Manning. NYG.
2. Tony Romo. DAL.
3. Robert Griffin. WAS.
4. Michael Vick. PHI.

The NFC South
1. Drew Brees. NO.
2. Matt Ryan. ATL.
3. Cam Newton. CAR.
4. Josh Freeman. TB.

The NFC West
1. Kevin Kolb. ARI.
2. Alex Smith. SF.
3. Sam Bradford. STL.
4. Russell Wilson. SEA.

      Good list, I agree with most of what you put. If Stafford didn't have so many injuries you could argue he's better than Cutler, but I agree. Good post

      Sanchez has been awful this year, and Fitz actually leads the league in TD passes, but he's also thrown his fair share of picks and I can't quite put Tannehill up higher yet.

      Ponder is an iffy QB at best, and Stafford has more picks than TD's this year.

      and as for the NFC South, I still respect Brees, even at 0-4, but you really do see just how important Sean Payton is.

      Thanks for the read and the insight!

      Pretty good, only thing is i wouldnt put sanchez at 2. And in the NFC south Brees would be 4th in my opinion. Matt Ryan has the best team in the league and he's playing great, Cam is playing way better than Brees wishes he could play, and even Freeman is playing better. If anything maybe a tie between Freeman and Brees. Other than that i agree with you on the most part :)
