Phinsider quarterback rankings

We take a look at how the Phinsider readers ranks the 32 starting quarterbacks in the NFL.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to rank the 32 starting (or projected starting) quarterbacks in the NFL. After some 200+ responses, we now break down the results from your voting.

We set up the scoring that a top-placed vote was worth 32 points, while the 32nd ranked quarterback would get one point for that vote. Then every quarterback's points total was divided by the number of responses completed for that quarterback (some ballots came in skipping some quarterbacks), to give his average ranking. The quarterbacks were then ordered, from highest average score to lowest, giving us our Phinsider quarterback rankings.

The Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers clearly took the top spot in our rankings, receiving 141 first-place votes, over 100 more than the New England Patriots' Tom Brady, who came in second with just 28 first-place votes.

The Miami Dolphins' Ryan Tannehill finished as the 11th ranked quarterback in our poll. He picked up 10 first place votes, 3 second places, 1 fourth place, 3 fifth places, 3 sixth places, 6 seventh places, 8 eighth places, 14 ninth places, 19 tenth places, 28, eleventh places, 15 twelfth places, 24 thirteenth places, 19 fourteenth places, 16 fifteenth places, 8 sixteenth places, 6 seventeenth places, 3 eighteenth places, 1 nineteenth place, 1 twenty-ninth place, and 6 thirtieth place votes. He finished with an average score of 21.18 points, putting him between Russell Wilson and Matt Ryan on the list.
