I'm a 49er fan, and that's the most bizarre ranking of Jimmy G....

IMO, Brees, Brady, and Rodgers have no business being ranked above Watson at this point in any of their careers.

Looks at number one and only number one

Yeah, that's a pretty accurate list. Who could have a problem with that? From "He'll be out of the league once every defense mimicks what Gus Bradley did!" to #1 player in the entire league according to his peers. What a beast.

The NFL is weirdly still super high on the old guys it seems like. Mike Sando released his quarterback tier rankings that he does (he's been doing them for years, since he was at ESPN) wher he speaks with 50 coaches and teams execs or whatever it is. 

Brees and Rodgers were still voted tier 1, and Brady was the top quarterback in tier 2 and nearly half his votes I think were tier one, which is just insanity for me. They also for some reason managed to put Rivers in the tier 2 list.

They must not be watching the games.  All three of these guys have had great careers but they are shells of what they once were at this point.  Can't blame them.  Age catches up to everybody.

Brees? He is still playing his best football though.... Just because he doesn't have the pretty arm these days doesn't mean he's no longer an elite QB (especially since he never had a great arm to begin with). Reminds of Broncos Peyton, old but in a system that perfectly compliments his lightning fast decision making and deadly accuracy. He has completed an insane 74.4% of his passes over the past 2 years en route to an ever more insane 115.9 passer rating (over 867 attempts). He's tier 1 no doubt.

The NFL top 100 doesn't even have a single offensive lineman in their top ten. And just one defensive lineman in Donald. But two runningbacks in the top ten. K. :)

PFF top ten for comparison: 

1. George Kittle

2. Aaron Donald

3. Russell Wilson

4. Patrick Mahomes

5. Brandon Brooks

6. T.J. Watt

7. Lamar Jackson

8. Michael Thomas

9. Ryan Ramczyk

Watch the program for the player commentary and clips, and leave everything else behind. You’ll be a lot happier.

 

My favorite part was Payton losing his freaking mind over Hopkins.

I agree on Brady. He’s average at best at this point and mainly living off his legacy.

Brees and Rogers is not as clear cut IMO. I think all three of those guys are pretty close. After Mahomes/Wilson, those are guys 3 through 5 for me in any order. Obviously I’m taking Watson over them moving forward due to age, but it’s not that unreasonable to still have Brees and Rodgers over him.

Brees is still putting up elite production based on his numbers. He’s lost arm strength and he’s getting up there in age but he’s still playing at a very high level.

Rodgers actually had a very comparable year in terms of efficiency to Watson (except QBR, which hated Rodgers last season for some reason, but that was an outlier among other stats). He’s not at the god-mode he used to be at, but I thinks he’s still a clearly top 6 QB.

This. That's the only reason I watch it. Where most players are ranked is pretty bad.

Any NFL player ranking that has Mahomes at #4 is a joke. You could argue Lamar had an excellent regular season while Mahomes was injured for the most part. Yet even when considering the injury, Mahomes should be no lower than #2.

Mahomes had 5k yards, 50TD, was MVP and was still #4 last year.

I’d say that the biggest snub is Mitchell Schwartz, who was left off the list. That man gets no respect.

It’s that time a year again where everyone complains about a list that is universally considered a joke that the players don’t take serious
