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:
Three Stooges (This Week We Excluded Rookie Quarterbacks)
Jared Goff has been sneaky bad this season. It’s kind of surprising. You’d think his raw numbers have been good. And to be frank he hasn’t been a disaster because QB play has been very good this year. But outside of rookies Jared Goff has the lowest QBR in the NFL. Sorry Jared Goff you are a stooge!
Jared Goff has turned the ball over nine times in five games. At some point you have to pull the plug on this.

Hurts has played OK at best. The Eagles will give him more time. Because he’d dynamic on his feet but his arm needs a lot of work before Jalen Hurts becomes a viable starting quarterback in the NFL. Sorry Jalen Hurts you are a stooge!
Taylor Heinicke has had some good moments and some horrible moments. But the thing here is to be honest is that Taylor Heinicke is a backup quarterback in the NFL. Sorry Taylor Heinicke you are a stooge!
Kyler Murray is a MVP candidate through 5 games and of course it helps that the Arizona Cardinals are undefeated. Kyler Murray you are a king.
Josh Allen outplayed Patrick Mahomes in Arrowhead. That is enough to make this list. Oh, and the Bills have the number 1 offense in the NFL. Josh Allen you are a king.

Sorry Justin Herbert, Aaron Rodgers and Lamar Jackson. You all deserve this spot. But the GOAT gets it and Tom Brady is the GOAT. Tom Brady you are a king.
