2010 NFL Quarterback Rankings: Week 4
Like the BCS, style points count. So do geeky, black-and-white stats such as touchdowns and quarterback ratings. Wins and losses? Definitely. Leadership? Uh-huh.
When it comes to my weekly NFL Quarterback Rankings -- if I had one of those little encircled R's to signify a trademarked idea, it'd go here -- the criteria is everything, nothing and all that's in between.
Past performance and future potential is considered, but mostly -- like college football's weekly Top 25 -- it's an attempt to identify the quarterbacks you'd most like to have starting for your team in this game, this week, right now. Injuries, obviously, significantly plummet value. A clever new TV ad might bump a player a notch.
