Sometimes, I feel like there are things so obvious and so easy for myself to see. However, people will tend to call me crazy. As I am about to press publish on this week’s NFL quarterback power rankings I have a couple big takeaways that I need to highlight before:
1. Carson Wentz is really good. If you watched the game between the Eagles and Ravens, Carson Wentz was playing with a practice squad lineup, and if you paid some real attention (AKA don’t only watch the Red Zone channel), he looked like the better QB on the field in a game that featured Lamar Jackson.
Carson Wentz almost beat the Ravens today without 80% of his offensive line, his top 3 WRs, his top 2 TEs, and his best RB (for most of the game).

2. Tom Brady is ahead of Aaron Rodgers in Power Rankings. Doesn’t mean he is better today but it means after his Buccaneers look like they might be the best team in the NFL and destroyed the Packers I have to put Brady ahead of Rodgers this week.
3. I bunched all three rookies together for the purpose of keeping it simple. And I am excited to see Tua play.
More Fitzpatrick: "I basically got fired yesterday and then my day at work today consisted of me in zoom meetings listening to the guy who fired me & then locked in a spaced out room with my replacement for four hours."

4. Phil Rivers and Drew Brees look old.
5. Don’t worry much about the ranking but look more at the tier.
