List Rules Professional QBs playing in the current season

One of the hottest debates in all of sports is over who is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. It's an argument that will rage on as long as there are NFL teams. Over the last decade, the question of the best current quarterback in pro football came down to two players: Peyton Manning and Tom Brady. Both of them have dominated the league, but there's a new breed of quarterbacks who can stake their claim to being the best in the league.

Would you argue with Aaron Rodgers as the best quarterback right now? The Green Bay quarterback is a guy who was won a Super Bowl and  an MVP, after all. How about Eli Manning or Ben Roethlisberger, both whom have won two Super Bowls. You can even throw Joe Flacco and Matt Ryan into the mix. And let's not forget about up-and-comers like Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson, and Colin Kaepernick either.

This is your chance to weigh in on who is the best quarterback in the NFL right now. The key here is right now. We aren't interested in the greatest quarterback in NFL history, only the best in 2016-2017. This is the Ultimate List of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League right now, so pick who you think is the most worthy contender for that title and vote him up.
