Ranking the NFL's Five Worst Quarterbacks - End of Week #5

Autographed Eli Manning Photograph - 8x10We've had some additions and subtractions to the worst QBs article. That's because some QBs have been so atrocious that they made the list. Some QBs have been dumped, benched or injured. Some teams have had multiple QBs. To be considered for the list, a QB has to have established themselves as the team's starter (played enough games) and the player must be active.

That means teams like Jacksonville (Henne and Gabbert), Cleveland (Weeden and Hoyer) and Minnesota (Ponder is out) who have gone through multiple QBs will not have a participant on this list.

With that being said, let's take a look at the worst QBs as rated by

#5 Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens (3-2)
Flacco has terrible stats and his team has won three out of its five starts despite him. I don't think that Flacco is earning the money being thrown at him. The Ravens are doing a better job throwing money at him than he is throwing passes.

Flacco's 2013 Passing Stats (courtesy of - Completion percentage (57.7%), 5 TDs, 8 INTs. Flacoo has passed for an average of 272 yards per game.

#4 Matt Schaub - Houston Texans (2-3)
By all accounts Matt should be rated below Newton but he has a won more games and he's had his moment during his career  Matt unlike Cam should be able to turn things around even if he set an NFL record for throwing a pick six in 4 consecutive games.

Matt's potential allows him to be rated higher than Newton but if he continues to be awful on the field, he might be ranked at or near the bottom.

Schaub's 2013 Passing Stats - Completion percentage (63.7%), 8 TDs, 9 INTs. Schaub has passed for an average of 273 yards per game.

#3 Cam Newton - Carolina Panthers (1-3)
Cam Newton has better stats than the losers above but the guy doesn't win, isn't a winner and has been in decline for a couple of years now. Will Carolina dump him after this season? They should.

Newton's 2013 Passing Stats - Completion percentage (57.5%), 6 TDs, 5 INTs. Newton has passed for an average of 221 yards per game.

#2 Carson Palmer - Arizona Cardinals (3-2)
It's hard to believe that Palmer's Cardinals are 3-2. They are because there competition has been sub-par and because it has nothing to with Palmer and his offense.

Palmer has taken a nose dive and it looks like his career might be close to over. He needs to produce now or he's history.Palmer's 2013 Passing Stats - Completion percentage (58.9%), 5 TDs, 9 INTs. Palmer has passed for an average of 221 yards per game.

#1 Eli Manning - New York Giants (0-5)
The way Eli Manning is playing it doesn't look promising that they will win more than a handful of games this season. Manning leads the league in interceptions thrown (12) and he's a liability on the field. 

Last week in the fourth quarter he threw 3 interceptions in 3 out of 9 attempts in three consecutive drives. All of his interceptions led to Philadelphia points. The Giants were ahead in the game before Eli's meltdown.

Eli's 2013 Passing Stats - Completion percentage (53.7%), 8 TDs, 12 INTs. Manning has passed for an average of 296 yards per game.

As you can see Geno Smith has worked his way off the list. He is improving with every game and he's leading the Jets to victories.

Let's see who's on the list after week 7. until then enjoy watching these clowns embarrass themselves on the field of play.
