2 Blaine Gabbert

Gabbert is the biggest bust in the NFL currently. He just makes too many poor throws and too many poor decisions.

3 JaMarcus Russell JaMarcus Russell JaMarcus Trenell Russell is a former American football quarterback. He played college football at LSU, where he finished 21–4 as a starter and was named MVP of the 2007 Sugar Bowl.

The worst years of my life were growing up watching Russell screw us over and make a bad name for us. I would rather have Tony Romo as the Raiders quarterback than Jamarcus Russell. He is why everybody says the raiders suck

He throws for 70 yards but is like 10 yards off the receiver - Danmarino4

Dumbest, fattest most overpaid worthless piece of junk EVER.

A stain on the black and silver

Jamarcus russell and ryan leaf were bigger draft busts. You could see manziel sucked in college that's why he was drafted so low.

8 John Beck

I think he sucks because he has 0% skill plus he has great people to pass to so he has no excuses what so ever I mean on he really does suck he bad horrible so altogether he is the worst quaterback ever to hit the field throw a ball to one of the best receivers... he sucks

9 Jimmy Clausen
10 Tony Romo Tony Romo Antonio Ramiro Romo is an American football television analyst and former quarterback who played 14 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

Absolutely blows. One of the worst QB's in the whole 2000's era.

Tony Romo sucks the only reason he ever wins games is because Dallas has good defense and wide receivers that can catch

I'm surprised with Texas "supposedly" being a football state, Romo hasn't been assassinated.!

This is trash, he was way better then qb's like geno smith or Nathan peterman

The Newcomers

? Patrick Mahomes II

The Contenders

11 Curtis Painter

Led his team to a 62-7 loss in 2011. This guy deserves more recognition for how bad he truly was.

12 Tim Couch Tim Couch

Lots of excuses made around Cleveland for this bust, O-Line. Did the other 31 teams he tried out for have bad O-lines too?

13 Tim Tebow Tim Tebow Timothy Richard Tebow is an American professional baseball outfielder in the New York Mets organization and a former professional American football player in the National Football League.

This guy is a lot worse than people think

Calvin Johnson only makes him look good. If Stafford had Brady's recievers he'd be about as good as Alex Smith or Joe Flacco. Most overrated QB right now. - mister83

17 Trent Dilfer
18 Kim McQuilken
19 George Izo
20 Rick Mirer
21 Bryce Petty

Bryce Petty is so horrible. He can't even throw 1 td pass and most of his throws are incomplete. Also, he plays like a leaf and is very bad. Can't he just finish his NFL career because he's horrible. He is like Ryan Leaf and has more interceptions than td passes. Just do something else besides football.

He can't even throw 1 td pass and is a bust. He only throws incompletions. He also plays like a leaf and is very bad. He is the second worst NFL quarterback besides Ryan Leaf. Just fire him from the NFL and do another profession please!
