One of the most popular narratives in the first half of the NFL season has been the play of the rookie quarterbacks. Here’s a look at how the NFL’s rookie quarterbacks are performing as the season approaches its midpoint.
Is Eli Manning the best quarterback in the NFL? If you were drafting a quarterback not named Griffin or Luck, whom would you pluck?
The reason that college quarterbacks start right away is that they are far more prepared for the NFL game. College football coaches have far more detailed and challenging offenses and game plans than they did a generation ago.
Jets fans can now take a deep breath. If they can get to 4-4 at the bye, they’ll be alive and kicking.
The New York Jets thought they had the same when they traded up to draft Mark Sanchez fifth overall in 2009. Now, they won’t even commit to him as the starting quarterback beyond this week.
The Jets are not going to win the division, but they can take baby steps, and that will put them in contention for an AFC Wild Card spot. It looks hopeless right now, but the schedule makers have given them a chance to rise up out of the muck.

In the past, it wouldn’t take much to get a battle started. An upstart player would play impressively in training camp while a veteran would report out of shape.Today’s players condition all year long and get familiar with the team’s plays and gameplan at mini-camp and OTAs. However, there are still a number of battles around the NFL that are worth watching.
