INDIANAPOLIS —Having one of the top quarterbacks in the National Football League is always nice.
But having two of the top players at that position is a luxury.
NFL.com's Around The NFL editor Gregg Rosenthal recently compiled a list of the "Top 32 Signal-Callers" in the league, a selection that includes the Indianapolis Colts' Andrew Luck (at No. 10 overall) and Jacoby Brissett (at No. 31).
What's notable about this list from Rosenthal is everything is considered regardless of a player's team or current standing, so a few free-agents-to-be make the cut, of course. But what's interesting is with a couple teams — the Colts and the Eagles — each having two quarterbacks on the list, and with the Minnesota Vikings essentially having all three of their QBs from the 2017 season listed, that didn't leave room for some notable names in this ranking, like Blake Bortles (who just led his team to an AFC Championship Game appearance), Mitchell Trubisky or AJ McCarron.
You can take a look at Rosenthal's entire list by clicking here, but here's what he had to say about the Colts' two quarterbacks, specifically:
10. Andrew Luck, QB, Colts
It's easy to forget how Luck transformed his game into a more mature, effective style in 2016 while playing through his shoulder injury. That's reason to believe Luck can still shoot to the top of these rankings if he stays healthy moving forward.*
*2016 stats (missed entire 2017 campaign): 15 games | 63.5 pct | 4,240 pass yds | 7.8 ypa | 31 pass TD | 13 INT | 341 rush yds | 2 rush TD*
31. Jacoby Brissett, QB, Colts
While he faded down the stretch, Brissett's natural feel for the position and accuracy on difficult downfield throws stood out in 15 starts for the Colts. Already blessed with a crafty old man's game, Brissett has the look of a quarterback who could have a McCown-like career lasting well more than a decade.*
*2017 stats: 16 games | 58.8 pct | 3,098 pass yds | 6.6 ypa | 13 pass TD | 7 INT | 260 rush yds | 4 rush TD*
