AFC North QB Rankings

No. 9 checks in at No. 3

 

James Walker ranks the big-name AFC North quarterbacks, placing Carson Palmer at No. 3 and Andy Dalton at No. 5. I’m not sure Joe Flacco (No. 2) is better than Palmer to be honest, partially because I don’t think Palmer was ever in a great position to suceed. Could anyone ever really shine in a Bob Bratkowski offense with an average offensive line and a top receiver who is notorious for freelancing?

I have my doubts.

What are your thoughts?

    Based on the past season, Flacco is far better than Palmer. Palmer was pretty bad last year, and Flacco continues to be an above average QB. Flacco has a lot of tools to play with, but hasn’t improved as much as he should have, whereas Palmer has just kept on going backwards, throwing to TO in triple coverage a number of times last season to rack up the interception numbers.

    Maybe Palmer shows how good he can be somewhere else, but I’d be surprised.
