r/NFL Ranks Starting QBs - Part 5


Let's start off this post the same way we did last time: Here is the link to the Tier 1 Voting.

Tier 2 was completed over the weekened, and we saw over 2,200 votes, which was a slight tick down from Tier 3's 2,400, but not too bad overall. As you know, I split Tier 2 into 2 votes, Tier 2A and Tier 2B. The goal of this was to actually make voting easier. Overall, we saw 3 clear cut results as the #12, #11, and #6 spots were runaways where one player took at least 35% of the vote. The other 10 positions were each much closer, and I'm afraid I was forced to use math. Since the voting was so close, I used a formula again to help me get the final rankings of each player. Despite the rankings being split in two, I did the formula calculation as if the were not. The main reason for this was so that Tier 2A, which had fewer players, would not have lower scores than Tier 2B. The formula gave 1 point for each 18th place vote, 2 for 17th, and so on until each 6th place vote got 13 points. Here are the results:

Rank Quarterback 12th Place Votes 13th Place Votes 14th Place Votes 15th Place Votes 16th Place Votes 17th Place Votes 18th Place Votes Score
18 Joe Flacco 155 228 205 254 325 507 544 7,027
17 Dak Prescott 184 240 305 363 333 286 507 7,783
16 Andy Dalton 156 281 280 342 404 379 366 7,912
15 Eli Manning 360 260 235 265 318 405 375 8,454
14 Jameis Winston 175 338 440 397 356 302 210 8,923
13 Marcus Mariota 315 487 453 330 312 216 105 10,185
12 Kirk Cousins 873 384 300 267 160 123 111 11,820
Rank Quarterback 6th Place Votes 7th Place Votes 8th Place Votes 9th Place Votes 10th Place Votes 11th Place Votes Score
11 Cam Newton 88 132 259 357 480 902 20,683
10 Derek Carr 261 328 363 411 422 433 22,694
9 Philip Rivers 364 356 349 398 437 317 23,259
8 Matthew Stafford 275 443 484 414 362 240 23,533
7 Andrew Luck 443 455 429 379 327 185 24,151
6 Russell Wilson 787 504 337 259 190 141 25,414

The first thing I personally find interesting is just how close the voting was from 18th place to 14th place. Flacco, Prescott, Dalton, Manning, and Winston had average ranks of 15.8, 15.5, 15.4, 15.2, and 15.0. That voting was insanely close, and the final score represents that, as the 1,896 points separating Flacco and Winston is nearly the same as the difference from Mariota to Cousins (1,635). The second thing is we had by far the closest vote for an individual position, as Matthew Stafford edged out Philip Rivers for the #8 spot by just 274 points. While Rivers saw more votes for 6th place (364 to 275), he also had a lot more for 10th and 11th combined (754 to 602). This was enough to shift the position to Stafford, if only just. So with all that said, here are the current rankings for all QBs up to this point.

Rank Quarterback Original Voting Position
6 Russell Wilson 6
7 Andrew Luck 7
8 Matthew Stafford 9
9 Philip Rivers 11
10 Derek Carr 8
11 Cam Newton 10
12 Kirk Cousins 15
13 Marcus Mariota 13
14 Jameis Winston 12
15 Eli Manning 14
16 Andy Dalton 18
17 Dak Prescott 16
18 Joe Flacco 17
19 Alex Smith 20
20 Carson Palmer 19
21 Ryan Tannehill 23
22 Sam Bradford 22
23 Carson Wentz 21
24 Tyrod Taylor 24
25 Blake Bortles 25
26 Trevor Siemian 26
27 Cody Kessler 29
28 Mike Glennon 28
29 Jared Goff 27
30 Brian Hoyer 30
31 Josh McCown 32
32 Tom Savage 31

And as always, here are all the previous voting results.

Finally, I've included a second question at the end of today's poll for what voting, if any, r/nfl would like to see next. The poll is optional, but it will give me ideas for the future.
