The NFL’s Conference Championship games were filled with drama and overall were undeniably entertaining. It got me to thinking, “Who was the most entertaining QB you’ve ever watched?”
This isn’t about wins or stats, but about who kept you on the edge of your seat because you couldn’t wait to see what they would do next. Who was must watch tv for you? Here’s my top 5.
#5 Tom Brady: It has nothing to do with his athleticism because he’s at the bottom of that list, but like many on my list he has swag and an captivating aura about him that can’t be denied. When there’s 2 min left in a game and he has the ball, the excitement over what’s about to happen is unmatched! How can he stay cool, stare down the defense while mean mugg’n, direct the offense and still get it done in the biggest moments? I don’t now how, but it’s entertaining.
#4 Patrick Mahomes: I know he’s young and he’s only been in the league for 2 years, but he is something else! No look passers, a cannon for an arm, accuracy and not to mention 50 TD’s in his 1st year as the starting QB! Most likely he will be named the league MVP of 2018 and he deserves it! He’s doing things on the field that we’ve never seen before. He’s the future of the league.
#3 Randall Cunningham: He was the first QB I watched that was totally different from all the rest. Tall, skinny, fast and elusive. Defenders would be all over him and somehow he would find a way to escape. Then on top of that he would launch the football with such ease. What was so entertaining about him was how easy he made it look. Smooth is the best way I could describe him. If you’re not familiar, do yourself a favor and look him up. He was “The Ultimate Weapon.”
#2 Bret Farve: The same thing that got him in trouble on the field was the same thing that made him a legend and must watch tv. This dude would take chances that would have you yelling “Noooo” but then you’d fallback in your seat because the “mistake” ended up working out. He left everything he had out there on the field every Sunday and for that, I was thoroughly entertained!
#1 Michael Vick: Man he had so much potential and could have been an all time great, but between not putting in the work and going to prison, it will always be “what if.” However this guy was blessed with such athleticism that at one point Nike made a commercial called the “Michael Vick Experience.” In this commercial people would get on an amusement park ride and pretend to be Vick. The spot worked because in real life he was that exciting. Blazing speed and with a flick of his left wrist….the ball would travel like it was on fire. Mike Vick was absolutely the most entertaining QB I’ve ever seen!
That’s my list, what’s yours?
