The anti-good does not exist in the NFC South when we are talking quarterbacks. If we were having this conversation 4 years ago, this division would not be near the top, but we aren’t talking about 2000-late. We are talking about 2012-13, and the NFC South teams have franchise quarterbacks galore. In my humble opinion, the NFC South has four franchise quarterbacks. The Panthers Daily team has put together a unique rating system for individual players as well as teams. The TPD Ratings are being released exclusively with the NFC signal callers.
The rating system is based on a number of things. But, if we told you what those are, we would have to kill you.
Cam Newton _ AKA _ Ace Boogie _ AKA Super Cam
I’m going to go ahead and compare Cam Newton to Lebron. Bold? Well, considering Cam is a comprable athlete to Bron Bron, that speaks for itself. He may even win a championship before Lebron… I chuckle at the haters.
SuperCam will continue to receive praise for his record breaking rookie year. That being said Cam comes in with a TPD Rating of:
Josh Freeman _ AKA _ Sophomore Slump Artist
After a really solid rookie campaign he did not progress in his second year. A lot of interceptions, granted not a lot of wide receiver help, Freeman disappointed. Whether the finger should be pointed at the GM, ex-head coach, Raheem Morris, or Josh Freeman remains to be seen. A lot is riding on Josh Freeman and the Bucs this season. A lot of new weapons means one thing for this young team, expect a revitalized Josh Freeman.
Matt Ryan _ AKA _ Matty Ice
“Matty Ice” is not really a good name for someone who is yet to win a playoff game. Matt Ryan has that ice in his veins from down to down during the season, even off-the field, but when the lights come on in January, Matty Freezes. That being said, he is still on a path to a very successful career in the NFL. With Julio Jones, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez, Harry Douglas, and Michael Turner the Falcons are a fierce offense. Ryan makes the throws. It’s just a simple decision to rank Matt Ryan towards the top of the NFL.
Drew Brees _ AKA _ Cool Brees _ AKA _ Lil’ Breezy
He’s really bad. No. He’s not really bad. He single handedly turned a franchise around. That was when they also brought in “Heisman” winner, Reggie Bush. Like I said, he single handedly turned a franchise around. In the pocket, Lil’ Breezy is similar to the other side of the pillow, he is always cool. Brees is projected by “TPD Ratings” to be the most effective quarterback in the NFC South again next season.
