In his ninth yearly tiered ranking of NFL quarterbacks, Mike Sando of The Athletic put 6 signal-callers in Tier 1: Aaron Rodgers (Packers), Patrick Mahomes (Chiefs), Tom Brady (Buccaneers), Josh Allen (Charges), Justin Herbert (Chargers) and Joe Burrow (Bengals). Sando’s rankings mirror voting from NFL coaches and executives, who ended up granted anonymity in trade for candor. The first tier incorporated the ideal QBs, the fifth tier the worst.
A Tier 1 QB, according to Sando, is a single “who can carry his staff every week. The crew wins due to the fact of him. He expertly handles pure passing scenarios. He has no serious holes in his sport.”
Allen, Herbert and Burrow joined Tier 1 for the very first time, forward of seventh-year Dallas Cowboys QB Dak Prescott, whom Sando placed in Tier 2 and rated 11th.
Sando outlined a Tier 2 quarterback as 1 who “can carry his workforce often but not as consistently. He can handle pure passing situations in doses and/or possesses other proportions that are distinctive plenty of to elevate him previously mentioned Tier 3. He has a gap or two in his match.”
“He’s a strong player. Really reliable,” a head coach advised Sando about Prescott. “He’s not heading to transform and all of a sudden come to be one thing a lot more particular.”
“I don’t imagine there is a important flaw in his recreation, but I’m not certain if he has like definitely hit that upper echelon,” a defensive mentor explained. “I imagine he is a really nutritious 2, a 2-in addition. He has under no circumstances truly manufactured that leap.”
A quarterbacks coach put Prescott in Tier 1, calling his footwork “impeccable.”
Dallas opens its season Sept. 11 at house versus Tampa Bay and its Tier 1 QB Brady. The Cowboys have not played in a Tremendous Bowl since 1996.
