    1. Jimmy Russel

    For anyone who hasn't paying attention, it's time to wake up. With 9 games under his belt, Russel is sporting an outstanding 140.3 passer rating, has booked 26 TDs to just 4 INTs (6.5 to 1 ratio) and torn up the field for 2500+ yards. The league often hears flashier names, but who needs flash when you have the only undefeated team in the NFL (9-0).


    The Elite

    2. Ryan Tannehill

    Tannehill boasts the most consistent arm on this list, hitting 71.2% of his throws. A short pass team with a fantastic RB duo, it's almost shocking to realizing Tannehill is already sitting on 2589 yards passing for the season. With a 127.9 QB rating, it seems like the Dolphins have found their rhythm and are going to march right into the playoffs.

    3. Aaron Rodgers

    The Packers have seen a huge shift this season to the power run game, but we can't help but wonder if the Pack could do a bit more. Sporting the lowest attempts yards on this list (excluding a remarkable backup QB in relief of their starter), Aaron seems like a beast waiting to be unleashed. However, his 111.9 passer rating shows he has as efficient as ever, and a more than capable game manager.

    4. Marcus Mario...toe.

    2691 yards passing. Seriously? So much for the talk of him being all legs and unproven. Mariota has set the league on fire since the 2015 draft, and he isn't stopping now. The Titans have to be thrilled their investment is paying off, although we've seen an uncharacteristic amount of turnovers this season (13). Still, 111.5 passer rating, 67+ completion percentage... TN has nothing to complain about.

    5. Chance Rogers

    Overlooked by many in a "poor QB class", Rogers fell to KC in the 2nd round and has absolutely made every other team regret it. 22 TDs to just 9 interceptions, 2650 yards make him the unquestionable lock for rookie of the year if the award were given today. But it's not. However, at this rate... who knows how his wild ride will end?

    On the Edge of Greatness

    6. Drew Brees


    When Saints ownership changed under questionable circumstances and chose not to resign Drew Brees, the entire HaWFL was shocked. More shocking was the 1yr deal signed to Cleveland on the spot, securing Drew Brees final ride into the sunset. With 70.1% completion percentage, 21 TDs to just 6 INTs, and a 108.5 passer rating Brees is heading into retirement the right way.

    7. Dan Landrum

    Big Ben falls, Dan The Man gets the call. Not one GM in the NFL is happy to see the Steelers backup QB play like a top QB in relief of Big Ben. It's hard to ignore a 107.4 passer rating when Ben had only 74. Lets compare: Ben: 51.8 CMP %, 8.6 Yard AVG, 11 TDS, 12 Ints. Dan "The Man": 68.1 CMP %, 9 Yard AVG, 15 TDs, 7 INTs. With his huge contract, is Ben on the way out?

    8. Jordan Vereen

    Vereen was the surprise pick of the draft, a supposed 5th round talent taken 1st overall and the start to his season was shaky at best. He has rallied as the coaching staff learned to use him over time, and with 21 TDs to 10 INTs has seen remarkably improved efficiency. Surprisingly, he hasn't used his legs as much as was expected... but maybe his arm is more than enough.

    9. Alexander Broussard

    This HaW Legacy QB continues his tradition of risky plays and frisky wins. 2633 yards have carried the Broncos to their solid share of wins, but his 19 TDs to 13 INTs continues to worry. Broussard will go down in Broncos history as one of the ultimate gun slingers, taking every chance laid out to win the game. Like Brett Favre, he'll have fans screaming at their TVs one second and cheering the next.

    10. Ryland Hyde

    20 teams passed on this guy, and he's 10th most efficient in the league. Not too shabby. Rounding out our list, Hyde has a very solid 2500+ yards passing, 21 TDs and 11 INTs. Arizona has found their successor to Carson Palmer, so long as they can continue developing him he could even surpass him in the heart of Cardinals fans.

    Very nice! Rodgers threw 3 INTs in the first 6 games and has followed that up with 6 in the last two :banghead:.

    Most of my early games have been blowouts which has lead to Lacy getting the bulk of the work

    I did not think anyone was paying attention lol. Nice to see Dan the man get noticed. But, for the record, Ben didn't get hurt... I benched him after loosing to the Browns...

    :eek: the changing of the guard! Looks like it was a good move. Ben seemed to be struggling
