New Orleans Saints: Ranking the quarterbacks in the NFC South
The NFC South boasts the best quarterback group in the NFL. Where does Saints’ Drew Brees and Bucs’ Tom Brady stack up in the NFC South?
The NFC South got a lot more competitive in the 2020 NFL off-season. Teddy Bridgewater left the Saints to start at quarterback for the Panthers, while Jameis Winston left the Buccaneers to be a backup quarterback for the Saints.
Let’s not forget about the biggest addition that took place in the NFC South. Tampa Bay signed the six-time Super Bowl Champion, Tom Brady, and he will try to show that he can win another Super Bowl at soon to be 43 years old, without Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick.
Of course, Matt Ryan is looming in shadows, even though he has stated that he’s the best quarterback in the NFC South. Tom Brady and Drew Brees may have something to say about that, as they both performed significantly better than him last season, despite their old age.
Teddy Bridgewater may be the biggest sleeper in the whole league since he bounced back from that gruesome leg injury where he missed two seasons. All of these quarterbacks have pro-bowl potential in 2020.
Tom Brady and Drew Brees are playing for their legacy, while Matt Ryan is trying to prove that he won’t be the next “Aaron Rodgers” where his team might draft a first-round quarterback next year if the 35-year-old struggles in 2020.
Teddy Bridgewater is still young, talented, and will be going into his first year, so he has the least amount of pressure.
That said, let’s strip away the reputation and spotlight of these quarterbacks, and see where they stack up going into the 2020 NFL season.
