Worst Quarterbacks in the NFL for 2016 | Ticket King Green Bay

Worst NFL QuarterbacksLast week, we heard from TJB on his top 15 NFL quarterbacks. Naturally, we had to ask him how the bottom half stacked up. So Ticket King Green Bay has give him the "microphone" and told him to get us the lowdown on the lowest of the low in the NFL.

16. Brock Osweiler- After outplaying Peyton Manning and getting benched, this young gun stuck his middle finger to the Broncos and bolted for Houston on a big free agent deal. The Texans paid a lot of money for him, so he will get a very long leash.
17. Matthew Stafford- This is one of the more intriguing players in sports. He has loads of talent and a big arm. But  for the longest of time the Lions have been a one trick pony on offense. Now that one trick pony is gone, with Calvin Johnson's retirement. Perhaps this will force the Lions to diversify?
18. Jameis Winston- Showed me a ton in 2015. Maturity, control, and command of not only his team, but himself.
19. Marcus Mariota- Showed me a ton as well. You could flip him and Winston back and forth all day on my list.
20. Tony Romo- One more injury from calling it a career.
21. Blake Bortles- Has shown me very little to suggest he will be anything other than average.
22. Jared Goff- A young talent with a rocket arm, Goff is the only rookie who is guaranteed to start week one with no looking over his shoulder.
23. Drew Brees- This year's old quarterback who is hanging on too long. He simply can't play anymore, and needs to call it a career. He won't because of the money though.
24. Jay Cutler- The ultimate version of the hot/cold player. When he is bad, he is really, REALLY bad. When he is good, he is really, REALLY good, as in MVP good.
25. Alex Smith- I don't know how this man is a still a starting quarterback in this league. The Chiefs need to find another quarterback and move on from this walking piece of average mediocrity. 
26. Mark Sanchez- He is saying and doing all the right things since arriving in Denver this off season. Just one problem, he isn't very good, and will be constantly looking over his shoulder at rookie Paxton Lynch.
27. Tyrod Taylor- The former Ravens backup had a solid season in Buffalo, but is by no means the long term answer.
28. Ryan Fitzpatrick- A career journeyman who has a good season is still a free agent because he wants money he just simply doesn't deserve. He needs to take what the Jets give him and get his butt back into the team facilities.
29. Ryan Tannehill- 2016 will the last chance for this former high first round draft choice. If not, then it will be time for the Dolphins to find someone else.
30. Sam Bradford- An NFL backup quarterback with the attitude of a college star, Bradford's career has been full of injuries and average play. The Eagles gave up a ton to draft Carson Wentz, and it's only a matter of time before he sees the field.
31. Colin Kaepernick- This off season he threw a fit over the 49ers commitment to him, despite bad play on his end. Now he has decided to stay for the time being, and new head coach Chip Kelly, who should have headed back to the college game, has to figure out how to get him on board. This can't end well.
32. Robert Griffin- After an epic saga came to an end in Washington, Griffin now heads to Cleveland, the place where all players go to die. He will simply be a placeholder, and could be back on the bench by the end of the season in favor of third round rookie Cody Kessler.

Top 15 Quarterbacks Currently in the NFL | Ticket King Green Bay

Top 15 Quarterbacks in NFL
For football writers, summer usually means lists as they are looking for topics to write about. Our in-house analyst T.J. Bryce decided this was a good time to rank the NFL quarterbacks. This isn't just a ranking of quarterbacks; this is a list of in what order would he want them as well. Here are the top 15 NFL quarterbacks in football.
 1. Aaron Rodgers- The NFL's two-time MVP tops yet another list for quarterback rankings. Rodgers is everything you could ever possibly want in a quarterback rolled up into one player. He's just one of six men in the world who can fire a football 70 yards in uniform during a game and the first on this list.
  2. Tom Brady- He did it. No matter what Patriots fans try to tell you, he did it. Now he needs to stop blaming everyone else, and take his punishment like a man. Besides that, he is still one of the best in the game. But for how long?
  3. Ben Roethlisberger- This man just keeps getting better each year. One of the best the league has seen in recent memory and still the hardest name in the sport to pronounce. The second man on this list who can fire a football 70 yards during a game.
  4. Cameron Newton- He finally realized his potential after his miserable second NFL season. Usually in the past, he would run away and blame everyone else. But, he starred down his own fears in the mirror, got back in the weight room, back in the training room, back on the practice field, adjusted to league's adjustment to him, and became an MVP. The third man on this list who can fire a football 70 yards during a game.
  5. Andrew Luck- Despite his injury issues last year, I still think he is about to become the best in the business. The Colts spent several top draft choices to make sure 2015 doesn't happen to him again.
  6. Derek Carr- This young gun of the Raiders has "star" written all over his face. Could potentially be lifting the MVP trophy next January. Hint-hint.
  7. Joe Flacco- Despite his torn ACL, I still think he is one of the best there is. He can gun it a mile. Number four out of six men who can throw a football 70 yards in uniform during a game.
  8. Andy Dalton- Red Rifle has become one of the better quarterbacks in the league, and Bengals would be defending Super Bowl champions if he hadn't injured his hand.
  9. Eli Manning- Now the league's lone Manning, Eli is the Derek Jeter of the NFL. The bigger stage, the brighter the lights, the better he plays.
10. Carson Palmer- Still going strong, long after the Bengals thought he was done. The perfect quarterback for the Cardinals at the moment, who are in the “there is no tomorrow” mode.
11. Russell Wilson- A lot of people may think I'm crazy for putting him here. I believe Wilson is a product of the system, and a mega-talented team. They should have lost, and lost by a large margin in that Wild Card game in Minnesota as they were badly outplayed. As the pieces begin to disappear, I still think he will begin to show us how average he really is.
12. Matt Ryan- His career has sort of stalled the last few years. Something is wrong with him that the general public can't see. I don't know if it's system discomfort or something personal or what. Priority number one at the moment for the Falcons is to get him right no matter what it is.
13. Teddy Bridgewater- One of the most unusual quarterbacks in recent memory. I don't know what exactly to think of him at the moment. He has too many limitations that will ever prevent him from being the best, he's very small, his arm isn't that strong, and he's not the most athletic quarterback out there. What he does though, he is very polished at, and he does very well. Still, I would rather have him than about half the league.
14. Phillip Rivers- The NFL's ultimate renegade checks in on this list at number fourteen.

15. Kirk Cousins- He gets the last spot on the top half of my list. Cousins finally settled down in 2015, and the Redskins now have their long term quarterback.
