Ranking the NFC East Quarterbacks
Best quarterbacks in the NFC East
The NFC East. The best division in NFL history. 12 Superbowl victories are currently split between the four NFC East teams, well three of them at least.
These teams have had their share of great quarterbacks over the years. From Troy Aikman and Roger Staubach to Phil Simms. From Joe Thiesmann to Donovan Mcnabb. The NFC East has always had the best quarterbacks over time. We've seen successful NFC East quarterbacks picked No. 1 overall, and we've seen draft steals in this division.
To be the best quarterback on this list you have to be consistent, throw great passes and show clutch abilities. Tony Romo, Mike Vick, Eli Manning and Robert Griffin III all fight for the No. 1 spot. Vick is the fastest and Griffin is a dual threat. On the other hand Romo puts up the best numbers but Manning has won two Super Bowls.
Age and injuries will also be taken into account. Will Vick's injuries prohibit him from being the best quarterback in the NFC East? Will Romo's rating make him the best? Will Griffin's young age make him the best or will his recent injuries hurt his standings? Can your quarterback lead a game-winning drive or does he crumble under pressure? Everything will be taken into account.
The NFC East features three total quarterbacks that were drafted No. 1 overall and an undrafted starting quarterback. Talent can be found from all around the scouting report in this division. So without further delay the best starting quarterbacks in the NFC East are as follows..

4. Mike Vick
Mike Vick is among the elite paid. Unfortunately he doesn't play elite.
The Philadelphia Eagles made a huge mistake giving Vick a deal several years ago and getting rid of Mcnabb. Vick has the highest turnover rate in the NFL per game and he still can't read defenses. On top of all that, he can't healthy. It's come to the point where Vick has to wear body armor during games.
Injuries, bad performances and overpaid make Vick fourth on this list.
3. Tony Romo
Romo is probably the best pure passer in the NFC East.
If you had a skills competition he would probably win it. The problem is he falls apart at the end of the season and at the end of crucial games. The Dallas Cowboys haven't had a winning record since the 2009 season and Romo had the lowest passer rating of his career last season. His awareness at the line of scrimmage is questionable as well.
Romo turns 33 years old next season.
2. Robert Griffin III
He gave us one the greatest rookie seasons of all time.
He's bringing the winning culture back to the nations capital. He can run, pass and read defenses. His two minute drill and ability to lead a game winning drive is undeniable. His only problem at this point is battling injuries. If he can stay healthy, watch out NFL.
Griffin is only 23 years old.
1. Eli Manning
This one should be obvious.
He was the best player in college and now he's arguably the best player in the NFL. Eli Manning has won two Super Bowl MVP's and is without a doubt the best quarterback in the fourth quarter in the NFL. The New York Giants have their franchise quarterback.
