The NFL quarterback rankings have typically been kind to Dak Prescott, but it’s time to re-evaluate his performance and drop him down the list.
This week, and every Tuesday of the season, the rankings are based with a combination of current play and performance of an indicator of what is to come.
Kyle Boller Division
32. Josh Rosen (LW: NA)
Rosen was put into an impossible situation on Sunday, a spot that ultimately led to him throwing an interception. He starts here because he has to prove himself, but this doesn’t reflect what happened against the Bears. The man had no chance to succeed.
31. C.J. Beathard (LW: NA)
Beathard will likely be the quarterback the rest of the season for the 49ers after Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a torn ACL on Sunday in a loss to Kansas City. Beathard started five games as a rookie last season, throwing four touchdowns and six interceptions. He’s the epitome of a backup quarterback.
30. Mitchell Trubisky (LW: 29)
Trubisky simply has to be better. Watch the Bears, and you see an offensive-minded head coach in Matt Nagy who is terrified to let his quarterback throw the ball. Everything is short, and for good reason. Trubisky puts the ball in harm’s way far too often, resulting in 591 yards and 5.68 yards per attempt, ranking 26th in both categories.
