NFL Quarterbacks play the most important position in all of sports. Without a good starting quarterback, and sometimes a good backup, the regular season is basically a waste of time. Teams without quarterbacks struggled to score points, which makes it extremely difficult to win games, and makes football miserable for all parties involved. Except me!
As awesome as it is to watch the best quarterbacks in the league light it up, my favorite part about the NFL, in regard to quarterbacks, is watching quarterbacks who, for lack of a better phrase, flat-out suck.
I once watched an entire New York Jets vs. Arizona Cardinals game in 2012 and the final score was 7-6. It’s my favorite NFL game of all-time because it was the worst joint quarterback performance I’ve seen in my entire life.
In the game, Jets’ QB Mark Sanchez was 10-of-21 for 97 yards. 97! Sanchez was also intercepted three times. He was pulled for Greg McElroy, who threw the game-winning touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Cardinals’ QB Ryan Lindley was 10-of-31 for 72 yards. He threw 31 passes for only 72 yards. Good lord, that was awful-ly good.
So, who are the most likely candidates to stink it up at quarterbacks this season? I’ve got it all figured out.
