NFL Quarterback Rankings

2010 NFL Quarterback Rankings: Week 3

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.

Let's get moving and shaking:

32. Ryan Fitzpatrick, Bills.

31. Matt Moore Jimmy Clausen, Panthers.

30. Jason Campbell Bruce Gradkowski, Raiders.

29. Derek Anderson, Cardinals.
