YOOOAdrian’s 2010 NFL Preview- QB Rankings

  • Just to reiterate, these are not fantasy football rankings.  Now that I’ve gotten that out-of-the-way, let me explain the criteria and attributes I looked at to rank the field generals. 
  • Accuracy- Being able to fit the ball into tight windows, hit the receiver in stride, timing, touch and arm strength.
  • Leadership- The quarterback position is the most important position in football.  When a team faces adversity, can he install confidence in his teammates to get through the adversity.
  • Intelligence- Being able to read the defense, make the right decisions, feel and anticipate the rush.
  • It- competitiveness, toughness, poise in 2 minute situations.
