Big fan of Arizona football? Then check out this list of Arizona Cardinals quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout Arizona Cardinals history, including current quarterbacks and past ones. This roster contains many American football greats, players in the game with the highest ratings in the NFL. The QB is the leader of the offensive team, the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, QBs still need to know the intricacies of the rules for trick plays and tactics. Vigorous training is a must—and don't forget that a quarterback is only as good as his receivers. 

Featuring 2018-2019 Arizona Cardinals and some of the greatest NFL quarterbacks of all time, the best Cardinals QBs include Carson Palmer, Jim Hart, and Jake Plummer, among other greats. 

Who are the best quarterbacks in Arizona Cardinals history? Here is every athlete who's ever held the illustrious position of Arizona Cardinals quarterback.
