The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Top 10 Quarterbacks Heading into the 2024 NFL season

Top 10 Quarterbacks Heading into the 2024 NFL season

Publish Date: 02/15/2024
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

As of the end of 2023, these are the Quarterback rankings, and we look forward to a great 2024 season. Injured quarterbacks will be treated like they will be healthy coming into 2024; Aaron Rodgers will not be in the top ten because he was out almost the entire season, and he is in his 40s; those two combined make me weary of overrating Rodgers because of what he did in the past.

The criteria are stats, wins/losses when playing, and what you have done in the playoffs. Some of my picks may shock you because you watch NFL shills on ESPN tell you how great Lamar Jackson is. Here, we will tell you the truth.

10) Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Although Goff may not have become Tom Brady, he’s certainly made progress. His shotgun and true dropback passing have improved considerably from their earlier stages; his outside-the-numbers passing has gone from bad to functional; and though not known for creating anything out of nowhere, Goff is tougher in the pocket now than before.

He is slowly but steadily making strides toward becoming an excellent quarterback.

9) Jordan Love, Green Bay Packers

At first, neither Love nor his young teammates could find an effective rhythm. While their talent was evident, Love’s throws were frequently off target, and receivers would miss assignments and run bad routes at inappropriate times when Love did the right thing – nobody was on the same page.

Love truly flourished during the second half and playoffs of his rookie season. He emerged as an accurate, confident quarterback. Fearlessness in the pocket and an ability to identify throwing platforms only the league’s premier quarterbacks possess were hallmarks of excellence for Love.

Love must still work through some inconsistencies but has already distinguished himself as an effective quarterback with plenty of room for growth.

8) Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert had an outstanding 2023 before his season was cut short due to injury.

Herbert continues to set an excellent standard when considering size, arm talent, pocket presence, decision-making abilities and accuracy.

Now, Herbert will have Jim Harbaugh at the helm to lead him, Harbaugh is a tremendous coach and maybe this will be the thing that vaults Herbert into the top five by seasons end.

7) Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

I know he has won two MVPs in the last four years; that shows you that it’s a popularity contest more than anything else. He is dangerous with his feet, but his grasp of the game is not great, and his accuracy can be questionable; in the playoffs, he has been awful.

Jackson’s offensive weapons have improved, and he is a great regular season quarterback, but in the end, the regular season is not where you show your greatness; the playoffs are, and he has fallen well short in those games.

6) Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Prescott remains one of the league’s elite quarterbacks, handling much of what must be done before each snap with incredible dexterity. Sometimes, his pre-snap anticipation leads him into trouble when defences find ways to change up their picture of him, yet on most occasions; he prevails mentally.

Prescott excels at using his mind to dominate a game; physical and athletic aspects of his performance tend to be good rather than exceptional.

Prescott’s issues in the playoffs are more of a coaching and front-office issue.

5) Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Matthew Stafford found new energy. Following an injury-riddled 2022 season that seemed to show his decline, Stafford made a fantastic comeback during 2023 and indeed turned it around.

Stafford was the definition of a gunslinger quarterback. He would sit back in his pocket and fire long, precise passes into tight windows across the field while under pressure or finding innovative arm angles to get them out. Though there may still be rare misfires here and there, Stafford’s greatest plays more than makeup for any miscues or errors that inevitably arise in every game.

Stafford is expected to remain one of the premier quarterbacks in the league. If health permits, he should continue as one of its premier passers.

4) C.J. Stroud, Houston Texans

Stroud is known for his impeccable pocket presence and ability to find throwing platforms from within the pocket, as well as pre-and post-snap decision-making abilities that rival most quarterbacks in the league. Combined with his signature feathery touch on all three levels, this combination makes Stroud the perfect candidate for franchise quarterback duties.

It may seem early to put him this high, but Stroud is that good.

3) Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Allen can never seem to get over the hump and into the Super Bowl, but unlike guys like Lamar Jackson, he has played well in some playoff games; he can’t seem to beat the guys ranked above him in the playoffs. The Bills need to get him another weapon or two, and the defense, while better this season, is still an issue if Allen is to lead the Bills to the Super Bowl.

Allen has improved, especially in the short to moderate game. The Bills running game was improved, but when they got to the playoffs, they still had to rely on Allen’s arm too much.

2) Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Injuries are the issue so far in Joe Burrow’s short career. In four seasons, he has played two complete seasons. One of those seasons ended in a Super Bowl and the other ended in the AFC Championship game.

Burrow has beaten the Chiefs and Mahomes in three out of four contests, including defeating Mahomes in Kansas City to go to the Super Bowl. With Jamar Chase and the likelihood of tagging Tee Higgins, Burrow will have one of the top skill position groups in the NFL. He still needs an improved line, but a healthy Burrow is the biggest obstacle to a Chiefs three-peat.

1) Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Mahomes has already done more in his career before the age of thirty than most have. There is some concerns, but those concerns are with others. What if Andy Reid retires? What if Travis Kelce retires? I don’t think either happens quite yet, but it’s not too far away from becoming a reality for both.

The Chiefs main competition in the AFC should come from Cincinnati, Buffalo, and Baltimore once again, and the Chiefs should have most of this team back. They do need to get Mahomes another weapon or two at Wide Reciever.
