      Wentz, Rodgers, Mahomes, Wilson and Luck, in that order.

    • Ramone DeCurta
      Ramone DeCurta 5 days ago

      Michael Murphy : Wilson did throw for 3,448 yards and 35 TD’s in 2018 (in a run-heavy offense that gave him the fewest attempts in the league), and 3,983 yards and 34 TD’s in 2017. He leads the league in TD’s over that span.
      He also threw for just 7 INT’s in 2018.
      His 100.3 career passer rating remains second only to Aaron Rodgers (103)! Drew Brees is a distant third at 97.

    The fact that people truly believe that Mahomes, Rothlisberger, and Luck are better than Wilson is mind boggling

    Luck is a sure thing first ballot hall of famer? Um, not just yet. I’d also want to see a LOT more from Mahomes before making him a first ballot Hall of Fame QB.

  • Mike Brown
    Mike Brown 10 days ago

    Personally i feel P. Manning is the best QB. But im just using a lil common sense.....that's not based on SB rings or how many times he's lost to Brady.....i mean Bill B. He loses to defense(or the PTB)...not the opposing QB.

    And why is derek carr on the list? He sucks, sorry.
    And I don’t think watson or goff belong in the lists either considering both of them didn’t perform well in the postseason.

      AJ A i agree AJ but if T.O. can be inducted while acting like a fool then I think Rivers can be inducted with a very solid career and being a model player and teammate. I think it balances out. Plus, rivers isn’t done.

  • Sand Man

    Based on talent i think Carson Wentz should be mentioned among them, but can he stay healthy tho?

    • Neonwhite A.
      Neonwhite A. 22 days ago

      Sand Man definitely talented one of my favorite QBs but HOF talented ?? I guess we will find out

    • Sand Man
      Sand Man 22 days ago

      @Neonwhite A. There is actually no way we can deny his talent, he played an MVP level season with a great Eagles team but what is more surprising is that he put up even better numbers the next season after the knee injuries while having a bad back. Lol

    • Neonwhite A.
      Neonwhite A. 22 days ago

      Wentz is so difficult to know what he is right now, he played on a fantastic eagles team his mvp year and then kinda fell off after getting hurt, he’ll probably be a lot better this year it’s just hard to rank him highly

  • Anthony Isgro

    Colin, how do you already put Patrick Mahomes in the First Ballot HOF when he's had one season? Really????

  • David Hennessey
    David Hennessey 25 days ago +1

    Baker Mayfield is def in the top 7 list. He might even be #3 on the list behind Brady and Mahomes. Baker started way fewer games and as a rookie almost threw for the same yardage as Brees.

  • Zalis116
    Zalis116 25 days ago

    Jets fans should temper their optimism on the Gase+Darnold pairing. Gase's system in Miami produced quarterbacks who were statistically sound (in terms of completions/efficiency), but whose play didn't translate to broader success and wins on the field.

    "The problem is easy to summarize: Gase's system threatens to choke out Darnold's potential by ordering him to throw too many too-short passes. [...] The discrepancy between advanced metrics like DVOA and QBR and basic stats is telling. Something made the raw passing stats for Dolphins quarterbacks look half decent for the last three years, even when those quarterbacks were playing poorly and limiting the offense. That "something" was Gase's love of the short pass in long-yardage situations."

    So basically, get ready to see 23-year-old Sam Darnold throw 7-yard passes on 3rd and 11 like he's 33-year-old Joe Flacco.

  • Chris L

    Andrew Luck, Patrick Mahomes, and Russell Wilson are NOT 1st ballot HOFers... Not yet at least, but to say they are undisputed 1st ballot HOFers is ridiculous.

  • Kenneth Tarlow
    Kenneth Tarlow 25 days ago

    I don't understand the love for Jimmy G. He won 7 in a row 2 different teams, never was a full time starter. last year he went 1-2 and went down for the season. When he started for the Pats he wnt put after the second game, Brady was out for 4. 2017 He played an away, last game of the season, and won 30-17, but it was against the second team(the Rams had already won the division and played their second team). further he threw 2 or three interceptions against a second team. In fact he throws alot of interceptions. I don't know but I think the 49ers got taken, they probably would be better off if they had taken Rosen, they could have gotten Rosen this year for cheap as a backup.

  • FilthyManatee

    Mahomes is a talent, but he should be in the second list, not the first. At least until he has played a few seasons as a starter.

    Cringe Central 25 days ago

    You guys are too far on the Mahomes bandwagon, you need to acknowledge that he has some of the best help offensively in the nfl, Elite TE, Elite Reciever, Elite rb for half the year and the backup was still solid. He’s good don’t get me wrong but it’s way too early to try to proclaim he’s top 3.

      I’ve updated this and put TB second, because you’re right about his leadership, and he can still throw lasers when needed. I just don’t think he’s as good as Rodgers as a whole, even though, yes, TB’s greatest strength is AR’s weakness.
      AR makes ridiculous things happen when his receivers can’t make separation and the defense knows MM’s high school playbook better than their own.

    • John Shepherd
      John Shepherd 25 days ago

      A great QB makes his teammates play better. Rogers doesn't have the leadership skills to do that.

    • Thomas More
      Thomas More 25 days ago

      John Shepherd
      Too complicated to parse out who in the Patriots’ organization most contributes to their institutional success. Fact is, they don’t need to rely solely on Brady like the Packers typically do with Rodgers.
      Rodgers has had terrible teams (including the organization) with less talent who don’t do well when they leave GB.

    • John Shepherd
      John Shepherd 25 days ago

      Rogers isn't on the same planet as Brady. There is more to greatness at the QB position than throwing the ball. There is leadership and Rogers isn't a leader. Brady not only took what was probably the weakest Pats team to the playoffs he won it all. Rogers has failed to win an NFC championship with far more talented teams.

    Andrew Luck is definitely not a first ballot Hall of Fame QB at this point. Are you kidding me? He has some good stats but some underwhelming, too (like interceptions). He has never been to the SB, and when he came closest, the Patriots wiped the floor with his team. He will need a streak of successful seasons to elevate his prospects for the Hall of Fame.

    Gregory Briner 26 days ago

    I think Goff, Mahomes, and Wentz all regress this year, but Mahomes has the most potential if he can still be dynamic and keep the turnovers in control. Father time may be catching up to Brees this year too. And for us Lions fans, notice how our franchise QB isn't in these lists?

  • James Geary
    James Geary 26 days ago

    You don't know if Mahomes can carry a bad team because he's never had too... I mean come one, he had one great MVP season (Newton and Ryan also had one great, MVP season), and people are saying he's elite and that he's a first-ballot hall of fame talent?? Get some chill.

  • patriotsfootballplc
    patriotsfootballplc 26 days ago

    The QB play is not any better. They have neutered consistent high level defensive play with rule changes that benefit the offense, QB & WRs especially, so that the level of QB play appears to have improved. That is all. It is for the benefit of hopefully being more entertaining to casual fans and fantasy players.
