Which Division Has The Best 4-Man Rotation
The NFL is about to implement some rather drastic changes. This is an FP exclusive. I can guarantee that no one else has this because I'm making it up as I go. Instead of 1 game a week, they're going to a game every other day. Of course the players can't be expected to play every other day so they're combining each division into a single team. So now we ask the question, which division has the best 4-man QB rotation (and the prize for the longest distance traveled to set up a 2nd rate rate article goes to ...)
I started by listing all the QBs by division thinking that would help. It really didn't. Each division has it's strong and weak points. I had to come up with something more scientific. I separated the QBs into 8 categories (4 in each category of course), best to worst. The 4 QBs in the best category got 8 points, 7 for the next, 6 for the next (pm me if you can't extrapolate the rest). This was also surprisingly little help (due in no small part to the fact that I spent 45 seconds on the entire exercise). 3 divisions came in at 20 points, 2 others at 19. So I threw all the analytic stuff out the window and picked the NFC East.
Eli Manning, Tony Romo, Robert Griffin, Michael Vick. Not one of those guys was in my 8-point category, but any one of them could make the Pro Bowl and it wouldn't be a huge stretch to see any of them lead their team to the Super Bowl. Every division has at least one weak link and in the NFCE it's Michael Vick. However, Vick is the only weak link that has Pro Bowl and even MVP caliber ability.
Last place on my list was much easier than first. The AFC East brought up the rear by quite a wide margin with Tom Brady playing the role of Steve Carlton on the '72 Phillies.
Next up, Rich will tell you which division has the best bullpen as he ranks all the 2nd and 3rd string quarterbacks. Unless of course he (correctly) determines that this is the dumbest idea ever for an article.
