11. QB Brandon Weeden, HOU
Gotta tip your cap to Brandon Weeden. He was cut by Jerry Jones just four weeks into his relief of Tony Romo, without being given another month or even a week to right the ship. He signed with Houston a few weeks later, claimed the starting job and a division title.
There are rumblings of Brian Hoyer coming back from his recent concussion and re-claiming the starting spot for Houston’s first-round matchup against Kansas City, but for now, Weeden is the starter and he’s also the eleventh best QB in the playoffs (nothing personal Brandon).
Weeden and McCarron are the bottom two QB’s in the third tier of this list as they’re essentially backups, while the next two have a bit more of a reputation, or are maybe just earning the reputation as legitimate “franchise” quarterbacks.
