Tom Brady voted number one on ESPN’s list of best Quarterbacks

Tom Brady voted a first tier QB by ESPN.

Tom Brady voted a first tier QB by ESPN.

It wasn’t long ago when a Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus wrote an article on ESPN saying Tom Brady was no longer an elite QB, but NFL Insiders vote the 36 year old QB number one on their list of best Quarterbacks.

Brady tied with Broncos QB Peyton Manning, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and New Orleans Saints Drew Brees at number one.

Mike Sando of ESPN, polled 26 NFL league insiders to grade all 32 projected starting NFL QBs and they did, and remained anonymous.

Basically Sando categorizes them like this: First Tier QB, the best of the best, 2nd tier QB, the up and comers, the very good QBs, 3rd QB tier, the not so good and rookies.

25 of the 26 voters put Brady in the Tier one QBs.

“Brady did a lot of good things with limited resources, but I saw holes when they put the onus on him to carry it all, as you saw when Denver beat him,” this evaluator said. “Brady has to have more of a running game at this stage. He cannot line up with five wides and win it as consistently as before. I still think Brady is a top-five quarterback, but I would not say he is the best right now.”

One person voted Brady, Manning, Brees, Rodgers, and Luck into the first tier of Quarterbacks.

Here’s my ranking of the top 5 best Quarterbacks in the NFL right now.

1. Tom Brady – I don’t think anybody could’ve have done with what he had last season. Always does more with less than any other QB. And, he had a bad inside protection.


2. Peyton Manning – Manning and Brady will always be one and two with me. Manning is great plain and simple.


3. Aaron Rodgers – Rodgers is a great QB but it was hard to put him here before Brees. He and Brees are always interchangeable to me. Rodgers is getting closer to beating the 49ers and closer to another SB appearance if you ask me.


4. Drew Brees – I think he’s getting close to another Super Bowl shot. I like Brees a lot. He’s great and so dangerous. He always leads one electric offense.

5. Andrew Luck – You could argue a few others here. Rivers, Big Ben, Tony Romo, etc but Luck is it for me. Last year was only year two and he lead an epic comeback win in the wildcard and made it to the first rounds of playoffs. Amazing. He has looked like a seasoned vet. Luck is the future of the NFL not Kaepernick, not RG3, but Luck.
