Let’s rank the NFC South quarterbacks

I bet you can guess who is at the top.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

As we enter the NFL Draft, isn’t it nice to know you have a franchise quarterback? Many teams are jockeying for a top pick in the draft just to find one, where pretty much every team in the NFC South has one already. A competitive division fielding four different franchise quarterbacks will always lead to some entertainment, whether that team is destined for the playoffs or destined for 7-9. But who really is the best of the bunch? Let’s take a definitive look.

1. Cam Newton-Carolina Panthers

Ohhhh Cam.

The former Auburn Tiger set the league on fire his rookie year with his rocket arm and insane running ability. It took him a few years, but eventually he went straight Lebron and put the team on his back on the way to a 12-4 record in 2013. After the management blew up his receiving core in 2014, he went straight JORDAN in 2015 and carried a receiving core that was comprised of Jerricho Cotchery, Devin Funchess, Philly Brown, and Ted Ginn to a Super Bowl. Sure, he didn’t win, but us Cardinals fans know what it’s like to lose a Super Bowl to a veteran quarterback.

Cam is poised to break a lot of records (on top of the ones he’s already broken). Whether you can get on board with his on the field play, his celebrations, his stylish outfits, or his off the field charity, Cam has proven he is a top quarterback in this league. If Tom Brady is DA GOAT, Cam Newton is DA SHEEP.

2. Jameis Winston-Tampa Bay Buccaneers

A former number one overall pick, Winston takes the reigns of a high powered offense. He throws a lot of interceptions sure, but you know who else did that? Brett Favre.

Winston should take a step forward in his career, at some point. That Mike Smith defense though... that I don’t know.

3. Matt Ryan-Atlanta Falcons

Matty Ice Cube may have won the MVP award a year after Cam did, but the NFL is a what have you done for me lately league. What have you done for me lat ely Matt? Not beat the darn Eagles, and now those Philly fans won’t shut up about it.

I think Matt Ryan is a good quarterback. And I am a credible person here. I specialize in ranking quarterbacks and flaunting Super Bowl leads. And I’m all out of Super Bowl leads.

4. Drew Brees-New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees is a big part of a multi level marketing company.

Real Talk: Drew Brees sucks. That’s my expert analysis.

What are your thoughts, Cardinals fans? Do you agree or disagree with these rankings?
