    Rivers had a down year in 2011, and still made that Pro Bowl. While the Chargers have certainly underachieved at points with him at quarterback, there’s no denying he’s one of the best in the league.

  • Aaron Rodgers
    Rodgers is unquestionably the best quarterback in the NFL. He was the league MVP in 2011 and helped the Packers win the Super Bowl the year before. Since taking over as Green Bay’s starter in 2008, he has thrown 131 touchdowns to just 37 interceptions. Reuters
  • Tom Brady
    At 34 years old, Brady is as good as he’s ever been. He threw for 5,235 yards this past season and led the Patriots to the Super Bowl. With five Super Bowl appearances, Brady is one of the best winners the game has ever seen. Reuters
