The 2013 regular season is finally over, which means it is time to crown the top quarterback of the year. In my mind, this was a down year for top flight quarterbacks, with a few big exceptions. Tom Brady had a phenomenal campaign, leading a squad devastated by injuries to a 12-4 record, and a first round bye in the playoffs. Andrew Luck continued to move up the ranks of elite signal callers, as he carried his team to a 11-5 record, and a division title. While Drew Brees struggled to close the deal on the NFC South, he still put forth a very nice season, throwing for over 5,000 yards, and tossing 39 touchdowns. But there is one man that blew away the competition, and as much as it pains me to say this, Peyton Manning was the best quarterback of 2013. Manning threw for 55 touchdowns (a new record), 5,477 yards (a new record), and he a led an offense that scored 606 points, which is a new NFL record. Peyton proved once again why he is the best regular season quarterback off all time, as his 2013 campaign will go down in history as possibly the best single-season performance of all time.
Here are the final rankings.
