So says CBSSports.com’s Jason La Canfora:

Tier 1: Bona fide franchise quarterbacks

2017: Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Newton

2018: Rodgers, Brady, Wilson, Brees, Roethlisberger, Newton, Carson Wentz

To be clear, if you are in this group you have won a Super Bowl and/or won an MVP and one could make a case you could do either this season and moving forward.

Wentz doesn’t have either hardware but he was in line to be MVP before he got hurt and his team still won the Lombardi Trophy. He’s legit.

I don’t think I have to belabor the point with the rest of this group. Brady is the GOAT, a healthy Rodgers is the currently the best at throwing footballs for a living and Newton I believe will continue on an upward trend with a new staff around him and better talent on that side of the ball. Brees seems ageless like Brady and Big Ben is playing for another mega-deal.

You don’t make it into this tier unless there is a chance one day someone is at least considering if you had a Hall of Fame career:


The purpose of journalism, and in this case any Philly digital site, is to “comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable.”

FASTPHILLYSPORTS.COM separates itself from the other Philadelphia blogs that provide Philly sports news because we do not accept the conventional wisdom, which is what the teams want you to believe even if a simple eye test tells you not to.
