Pat Kirwan from NFL.com has put together a list of the Top 35 NFL Quarterbacks, and everybody’s favorite New England QB tops his list. Tom Brady tops Kirwan’s “A” Group, which consists of the top five quarterbacks on his list. The other 30 quarterbacks are divided into groups of 5. Here’s what Kirwan had to say about TB12:
“Three Super Bowl rings and four appearances in the big game to go along with the most touchdown passes in 2010 (36).”
So what other quarterbacks were in Brady’s “A” Group?
1. Tom Brady
2. Drew Brees
3. Peyton Manning
4. Philip Rivers
5. Aaron Rodgers
I think this is the first ranking where Peyton Manning wasn’t ranked #2 after Brady, or #1. Is he slowing down? I don’t think I’m comfortable making that statement. Former Patriots QB Matt Cassel is ranked #1 in the “D” Group (16th overall).
