New Orleans Saints: Grading each of the team’s three quarterbacks in 2019
2019 was a crazy year for the quarterback position for the New Orleans Saints. All three quarterbacks were under center for a considerable amount of time this season, and each had spectacular moments.
We’ve graded the 2019 New Orleans Saints offensive lineman already, now we have released our quarterback edition. The grading system being used is (F-A+), ranking from “Why did they even play a single down?” to “How would we have even won a game without them?”.
These grades are completely independent of any other review, but Pro Football Focus (PFF) gives users one of the best tools for analytics, and that’s the site we chose to help focus on specific statistics to grade the players’ performances.
It’s amazing that not only did all three quarterbacks go under center, but they all played in meaningful (not garbage time) situations at some point during the season. Of course, this was only allowed by the injury to our starting quarterback early in the season.
The 2019 quarterback position ranked in the following categories as follows:
Passing Yards: 4,244 (NFL Rank: 7)
Passing Touchdowns: 36 (NFL Rank: 2)
Interceptions: 6 (NFL Rank: 3)
While each of the three quarterbacks played a significant role this year, it may surprise you how we graded each player. We graded each player based on how they performed, and advise what the future may hold for them.
