Colin Cowherd: “My top 5 quarterbacks in the league would be Patrick Mahomes— he has separated from everybody else. I would put Joe Burrow at two because of his accuracy, his situational greatness, no turnovers. Josh Allen is third— he’s the Mike Tyson, he will knock you out but still can be a bit sloppy. Number four, Justin Herbert— has to put up some playoff wins, but 6’5” 1/2, 240, he set every record for a player in his first three years, even beat Mahomes. Number five, a kid I loved in high school, Trevor Lawrence. Nobody is taking a phone call now on Trevor Lawrence. Let’s go to number six… ehh, I don’t know, number six? ‘LAMAR JACKSON!’… um, contract issue, hurt at the end of this year, hurt at the end of last year, and his playoff numbers are horrible, he completes 56% of his throws in the playoffs. ‘JALEN HURTS!’ Probably my six, but historically a little small, hurt again, runs more than I’m comfortable with, is he just having one great year? I would have had Kyler Murray at five or six but now he’s got drama, injuries, can’t get along with people… What about Matt Stafford? He had three different injuries this year. What about Aaron Rodgers? Green Bay might move off him, he’s 39. Brady? OLD. It’s almost like social media, you got your ‘Big 5’ – you got Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Twitter, YouTube, and then you get to six… Parler?? Don’t give me Parler.” (Full Segment Above)
