Week 1 QB Rankings

I just need the cape Juan…

Week 1 QB Rankings

These are my first batch of QB rankings for week 1, they could change today, tomorrow, or in the next 5 minutes.  Let’s get this party started:

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
1 Matthew Stafford (DET vs STL) 4 -3

Pulling the Rams at home puts him at #1

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
2 Drew Brees (NO vs WAS) 2 0

Brees at home is basically unstoppable

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
3 Cam Newton (CAR at TB) 5 -2

The Bucs D will be better, but it won’t matter

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
4 Tom Brady (NE at TEN) 1 3

The Titans will be no pushover, but The New Brady Bunch will be released

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
5 Aaron Rodgers (GB vs SF) 3 2

Rodgers gets a tough pull week one

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
6 Michael Vick (PHI at CLE) 6 0

Let;s hope the Flak Jacket holds up. The Browns D is decent

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
7 Jake Locker (TEN vs NE) 18 -11

I love Locker and he will have to throw a lot here

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
8 Philip Rivers (SD at OAK) 8 0

Rivers will look to get off to better start in 2012

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
9 Robert Griffin III (WAS at NO) 13 -4

At NO is not the easiest pull, but RG3 will have to throw, run, and maybe more to keep pace

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
10 Matt Ryan (ATL at KC) 7 3

Ryan pulls a tough KC D at home…buyer beware here.

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
11 Peyton Manning (DEN vs PIT) 12 -1

Manning will be tested early

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
12 Jay Cutler (CHI vs IND) 11 1

The Colts D may get rocked in Chicago for their first outing

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
13 Ben Roethlisberger (PIT at DEN) 14 -1

The Broncos D looks legit and the offense may not be on the same page yet

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
14 Russell Wilson (SEA at ARI) 21 -7

remember what Cam did last year at AZ in week 1?

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
15 Alex Smith (SF at GB) 22 -7

In 2011, it was always a good idea to start QBs vs the Pack. Will have to play catch up

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
16 Carson Palmer (OAK vs SD) 20 -4

These games are normally high scoring, so Palmer could be a sneaky start

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
17 Sam Bradford (STL at DET) 24 -7

Bradford will look to bounce back this season and will have to throw a ton in this game

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
18 Joe Flacco (BAL vs CIN) 16 2

Should be ready for a breakout season, but this will a tough game

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
19 Josh Freeman (TB vs CAR) 17 2

Car D is improved and I’m not sure if Freeman has. This will be a big test.

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
20 Andrew Luck (IND at CHI) 19 1

Luck gets tested early, I think he will be fine

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
21 Matt Schaub (HOU vs MIA) 15 6

Miami has a tough D, the Texans may not have to throw more than 20 times.

Rank Player (matchup) ECR™ vs ECR
22 Ryan Fitzpatrick (BUF at NYJ) 23 -1

Tough pull on week one, although Stevie has found success on Revis Island
