Brady Quinn Ranked As The NFL's 55th Best QB

Earlier we told you that Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel was ranked as the NFL’s 58th best (worst?) QB by Bleacher Report draft lead writer Matt Miller.

Well, you didn’t think we’d leave out Brady Quinn, did you?

Quinn comes in ahead of Cassel on the list, at #55.


Here is what Miller had to say about Quinn:

Brady Quinn (6’3″, 235 pounds, six seasons) is fairly accurate on short and intermediate routes, but his accuracy takes a hit when trying to push the ball down the field, connecting on only 14 percent of his passes over 20 yards.

Decision Making17/30
Doesn’t always find the open man and is late on some throws. When he has time, he becomes much more consistent at finding and hitting his target.

Quinn has bounced around plenty in his NFL career, with 2012 finally giving him time to showcase his abilities. What we saw wasn’t great. Quinn struggles to find the open man and doesn’t have the confidence to throw receivers open. He’s purely a backup at this point.

In short, better than Cassel but still really bad.

Some of the QB’s ranked ahead of both Cassel and Quinn include:

54. Brian Hoyer, 53. Thad Lewis, 50. Graham Harrell, 47. Terrelle Pryor and both of Ben Roethlisberger’s backups on the Steelers.

I could go on, but why depress you any further.

The good news is, for you Alex Smith fans out there, is that the soon to be former 49ers QB came in at #18. So the Chiefs could be in the running for the 18th best QB in the NFL.

      That’s what we’re hoping from Reid and Dorsey!

    I’d like to see Quinn as the backup. He’s affordable, the players like him, and he performed slightly better than Cassel after injuries decimated the offense and their confidence was already shot. He’s not a starting option at this point, but he’s got character and would be serviceable on a winning team with weapons and confidence.
