Being a high level team in the National Football League usually means you have a high level quarterback. It goes hand and hand. Sure, sometimes teams get lucky and they end up having a mid-level or even bad quarterback and somehow they find success. But 99% of the time that’s not the base. Teams are willing to do ANYTHING to find that next high-level quarterback that can be the backbone of their team for years to come. So on Pod That we decided to take a look at the absolute worst quarterbacks and the absolute best quarterbacks in the league on a week to week basis and decide who are the Three Stooges of NFL Quarterbacks and Three Kings of the NFL Quarterbacks. So after week 4 of the NFL season here are our Three Stooges and Three Kings we put on our podcast:
Look, Davis Mills didn’t ask the Houston Texans to throw him as the starting quarterback. It actually took a series of unfortunate circumstances for him to be thrown in as the starting quarterback for the Texans. He has 2 touchdowns and 5 interceptions thus far this season. And look Davis Mills is a smart guy, he went to Stanford he knows he deserves to be on this list. Sorry Davis Mills you are a stooge.
Hey another week, and another Miami Dolphin quarterback appears on the stooge list. Tua doesn’t appear to be the answer in Miami but neither does Jacoby Brissett. The Dolphins are close but not that close because they have a huge hole at the most important position in football. Sorry Jacoby Brissett you are a stooge.
Lots of controversy on the podcast here with Trevor Lawerence, on one hand George (the guy writing this article at the moment) didn’t want him on this list. So we flipped a coin between him and Ben Roethilsberger. And here’s my bold prediction. This is the last time in his career that Trevor Lawerence will appear on the stooge list BUT sorry Trevor Lawerence you are a stooge.
NFL WEEK 4 Stooges of QBs + Week 5 Preview ?
Ben Roethlisberger or Trevor Lawrence?

Kyler Murray currently sits on top of the Vegas odds to be the MVP of the NFL. That alone earns you a spot as one of the three kings. The Cardinals are also the lone undefeated team remaining in the NFL. Kyler Murray you are a king.
Do I need to sit here and explain how good Pat Mahomes is? Probably not. We all know how good of a football player he is. And oh, he leads the NFL in touchdown passes. Patrick Mahomes you are a king.
There were many directions we could have went with the last spot on the kings. But Justin Herbert went back to back weeks out-dueling Patrick Mahomes and then looking flawless on Monday Night Football. Justin Herbert you are a king.
