Brady is not that good. He is just considered as good because he has great wideouts

3 super bowls under his belt, but not lately

Brady has the worst wide outs in the nfl

HE is the BEST

He is the only player to have back to back to back 5,000 yards in three seasons straight. Brees also has the all time best completion percentage with 66.95%.

Wow, I physically cannot beg every list for drew to be higher. Nice job, whoever made this list. - PokemonRPGbro

Not only good this year, but consistent

Drew Brees? Drew Brees at 3? Come on people.

3 Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers Aaron Charles Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League.

Rogers is the best

Going to the hall of fame hail mary king;

4 Adrian Peterson Adrian Peterson Adrian Lewis Peterson is an American football running back who originally played for the Minnesota Vikings and currently plays for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League.

Keep the votes for AP comin'. 2000 yards, 10000 yard club comin' this year.

AP's a great player, but he's a jerk to his kid.

5 Larry Fitzgerald Larry Fitzgerald Larry Darnell Fitzgerald Jr. is an American football wide receiver for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League. Fitzgerald was drafted 3rd overall to the Arizona Cardinals in 2004, he is considered to be one of the best players of his position to never win a Super Bowl.

Okay, I guess I can see this, but I think Bryant and Brown are better.

6 Phillip Rivers Phillip Rivers Philip Michael Rivers is an American football quarterback for the San Diego Chargers of the National Football League.

The man has never had a good defense or top receivers in his career. He's top 5 no doubt.

"Never had top receivers? " He's got Antonio Gates AND Keenan Allen.

Carrying a team after a pro-bowler leaves is a big task

7 Haloti Ngata Haloti Ngata Etuini Haloti Ngata is an American football defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League. V 1 Comment

12 Matt Ryan Matt Ryan Matthew Thomas "Matt" Ryan, nicknamed "Matty Ice," is an American football quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons of the National Football League.

"Future 10-time pro-bowler," huh? He's several seasons in and has only gotten worse. The league knows what he can do now, and it's quite easy for them to stop him. He'll be better eventually, when the older QBs like Rodgers, Brady, and Manning are done, but not quite yet.

Reigning rookie of the year, Ryan is definitely a future 10-time pro-bowler
