Top 5 Projected QBs for 2012.
Quarterbacks should be measured by how many games and championships that they win, but the truth is they are also judged by QB ratings, yard per game and of course touchdowns.
These are our projected top 5 QBs/Stat Monsters.
#1 Tom Brady- New England Patriots
Wes Welker’s bungled “catch” is the answer that is widely given as the reason why the Patriots lost the Super Bowl. The truth is that it was the team’s lack of a running game that failed to close it out.
But it true Patriot fashion, the game film of the championship game shows what it shows and they went out and upgraded their receiving corps. In 2012, Brady not only has his two favorite tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, he has a smorgasbord of targets that have specific functions.
Brandon Lloyd has emerged as the consistent go-to-guy for circus catches. Deion Branch is still good to turn possession catches into homeruns. Contract situation or not, Wes Welker will ball out-of-control to prove his various points.
That’s five outlets before we get into the Chad Ochcocinco project which in year two should start to pay dividends. Now throw in Julian Edelman, Jabar Gaffney, Donte’ Stallworth and Anthony Gonzalez.
Believe it or not, there’s still three other names in that group. When all is said and done, Brady won’t just have a talented group to work with, he’ll have one that’s born of fire as the team can’t carry this many guys into the season.
Cross that much talented with Brady’s ability to be well… Brady and he stands to have a monster year statistically.
