London’s Look at Week 1 QBs

It’s time to take a look at the Week 1 quarterbacks that I like. The NFL is a quarterback-driven league; therefore picking the right QB to play in your lineup on is extremely important.

Here are the 5 QB’s that I like Week 1:

1. Aaron Rodgers vs. Chicago Bears — In my opinion, Aaron Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL as well as the best QB play week 1. Rodgers faces a Bears defense transitioning from a 4-3 to a 3-4 front. Chicago doesn’t currently have the top-flight linebackers needed to dominate with a 3-4 defense. Rodgers shredded the Bears in both contests last season with 10 TD’s and 0 INT’s. Rodgers will be missing his favorite target in Jordy Nelson, but GB still has plenty of weapons for Rodgers to exploit Chicago’s defense with.

2. Tony Romo vs. NY Giants — Tony Romo and the Cowboys get to face a NY Giants defense that lacks the playmakers needed to slow Tony Romo down. Jason Pierre-Paul was the Giants’ only true pass rusher and we know that he won’t be suiting up for the Giants anytime soon. Look for Romo to target his receivers a lot with Dallas’ RB situation unsettled. Jason Witten will also reap the benefit of Dallas’ aerial attack on NY.

3. Matt Ryan vs. Philadelphia Eagles — Matt Ryan and the Falcons figure to be in a shootout with Chip Kelly’s Eagles. The Falcons have one of the best WR tandems in the NFL with Julio Jones and Roddy White. Jones is an absolute nightmare for defensive backs. He’s impossible to cover 1-on-1. If the Eagles double Jones, expect Ryan to target White.

4. Sam Bradford vs. Atlanta Falcons — As I mentioned earlier, this is going to be a shootout. Bradford will come out blazing against the Falcons’ secondary. If Bradford’s last preseason effort (10-10 with 3 TDs) is any indication of how we will play in week 1, look for him to have one hell of a day.

5. Tyrod Taylor vs. Indianapolis Colts — This is not a misprint. I like what Taylor brings to the Bills’ offense at the QB position. Bills’ offensive coordinator Greg Roman had a QB similar to Taylor when he was in San Francisco in Colin Kaepernick, and he got tremendous output from him as both a runner and a passer. Taylor has a plethora of talent at the skill positions to get the ball to, including WR Sammy Watkins, RB LeSean McCoy and TE Charles Clay. I wouldn’t be surprised if Taylor rushed for a TD and threw for a couple more scores against the Colts.

    1. I agree with you. he is at the top with Brady i believe.
    2. as much as i try, i cannot like Romo because he is not steady, and i think their offense needs to play a few games together. I would put Brady at the 2 spot.
    3. I like Matt Ryan this year. should be a good year for him.
    4. Bridgewater because he has had a year to learn his offense and he has a really good team around him.
    5. Andrew Luck. He is steadily and consistent as the QB. very intelligent QB.
    DARK HORSES: Marcus Mariota and Russell Wilson.
