Big fan of New York football? Then check out this list of New York Giants quarterbacks with photos! It includes every starting quarterback from throughout New York Giants history, including current quarterbacks and past ones, all ranked from best to worst. This roster contains many American football greats, players who are also among the best quarterbacks in NFL history. The quarterback is the leader of the offense, and the one who often calls the plays. Although most teams use an offensive coordinator now, quarterbacks 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.

In the 2017-18 NFL season, the current New York Giants starting QBs and backup QBs are Eli Manning, Josh Johnson, Geno Smith, and Davis Webb.

They're on this comprehensive list, along with all of the other sports stars who have had the honor of being the arm behind this beloved Illinois team.
