The position of Quarterback is the single most important in all of team sports. It has become so cliche that sports commentators and pundits seem to repeat it at every National Football League game in any year, and 2015 is not any different. As the NFL evolves into more and more of a passing league thanks to some rules that make it easier to put points on the scoreboard by throwing the ball. Even quarterbacks who are lacking a lot of offensive firepower are able to be fantasy football champions, some do so on a weekly basis. It’s almost like the NFL is trying to cater directly to fantasy football players.
But we are digressing.
The 2015 NFL season has been memorable for a few prolific quarterbacks in the game today. Tom Brady of the New England Patriots has once again continued to cement his legacy and makes the case stronger for anyone arguing that is the greatest to ever play the position. Carson Palmer could be having an MVP while trying to lead the Arizona Cardinals to a Super Bowl victory. If your into betting though Palmer will probably fall just short of Cam Newton for MVP voting. No matter how the Carolina Panthers finished, Newton seems to be well on his way to winning that award at the very least.
On the other end of the spectrum though 2015 has seen it’s share of quarterback letdowns or those that weren’t letdowns but fulfilled their destiny of being the lackluster player their critics charged them as. Some of these men were unexpectedly thrown into action during the 2015 season due to starters being sidelined for injuries or, in one special case, because of an all together different reason. We present 2015’s 10 worst NFL Quaterbacks:
10. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons
It only took two short months for Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons to completely fall apart this year. Starting on October 11 and playing only until December 13, Matt Ryan threw the ball for a total of 12 interceptions. There is only one other NFL quarterback in this list that tossed for more interceptions than Matt Ryan (14) after completing Week 13 of the 2015 season. The Atlanta Falcons lost six straight games and an ugly seven out of eight during a particularly bad stretch. Things are so bad for Atlanta that the Falcons are seriously considering a trade for Matt Ryan in 2016.
