[2017-18 NFL Position Power Rankings] The Back-Up Quarterbacks

Welcome to another edition of the 2017-18 USB’s NFL Position Power Rankings! Today, we have a little surprise for you as we are ranking the BACK-UP QB’S for the first time ever!

Why are we ranking the back-up QB’s you ask? Because believe it or not, these guys are pretty important to the overall offense as well. We all know that the quarterback is the most important position on your football team. If you don’t have a good QB, your team is going to have a LOOOOOOOOOONNNNNNGGGGGGG season. We also know that no matter how good your team’s starting QB is, he’s always one good hit away from watching the rest of the season from the sidelines.

And that’s why the back-up QB position is so important guys. If your team’s starting QB goes down and you have a back-up who just plain sucks, your season is over.

Which brings us to this list of course! Now, how exactly do we rank a bunch of guys who rarely play? Glad you asked! With a lot of personal bias that’s how. Obviously when it comes to back-up QB’s, I love two kinds of players:

-A young guy who has shown glimpses that he can be a starter eventually.

-Rookies

The rest of the QB’s? Meh. If you see your favorite team ranked somewhere between the 10’s and the 30’s….perhaps they should go out and sign Colin Kaepernick? Hmmmm…..

Anyway…..

LEZ DO DIS!!!!!!
