Predicting the NFC Starting Quarterbacks For Next Season
I did the AFC earlier so, here is my NFC quarterback predictions.
If you look at my AFC predictions, you’ll see a lot that has changed since last season and that theme won’t change for the NFC.
Dallas Cowboys, Dak Prescott: If Dak can make a full recovery and play the way he was at the beginning of last season, he won’t only win the Comeback Player of the Year award, he could also contend for an MVP.
Washington Football Team, Taylor Heinicke: Heinicke played his balls off against the Buccaneers in the wild card and proved how he can rally a team around him. He just signed a two year extension worth eight million dollars. I think that Heinicke will beat Alex Smith out for the starting role in Washington next season.
Philadelphia Eagles, Jalen Hurts: Not much competition here since Wentz got traded to the Colts yesterday. I think the Eagles have found their guy for the future.
New York Giants, Daniel Jones: This could be Danny Dimes last season to prove if he is a franchise guy in New York and with Saquon Barkley coming back to aid him, I think we could see Jones play good enough to keep his job.
Chicago Bears, Trey Lance: Bye bye Nick, bye bye Mitch. It’s Trey time in Chicago. I think the Bears will take Lance in the first round and keep Foles around as a backup. Lance is going to be a super hit or miss guy in the draft because he was super successful in college but, he played at the 1-AA level so I am curious on how he’ll play.
Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers: Much like Mahomes with the Chiefs, I don’t need to explain this one.
Detroit Lions, Jared Goff: I feel bad for Goff having to live in Detroit but, if the Lions can keep Golladay and Jones Jr. around then he’ll have great weapons on the outside with Hockenson at tight end.
Minnesota Vikings, Kirk Cousins: Cousins is like Derek Carr because when he plays bad, he plays real bad and the media notices but, when he balls out you don’t hear a word about it. I think that Cousins could have a great season next year with the weapons he has.
Atlanta Falcons, Justin Fields: The Matty Ice era in Atlanta is over and Falcons fans need to accept that. I think Atlanta will take Fields will return to the state of Georgia when they take him at number four.
Carolina Panthers, Teddy Bridgewater: I love, love, love Bridgewater and I really think that Matt Rhule should give him another opportunity this upcoming season. If they can take a weapon at seven like Kyle Pitts, they’ll set up Teddy Two Gloves up for success.
New Orleans Saints, Jamies Winston: Drew Brees needs to hang up the cleats and I think every NFL fan agrees except for delusional Saints fans. Winston is super talented and has the weapons to succeed.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tom Brady: I actually don’t think this guy will retire.
Arizona Cardinals, Kyler Murray: Not only will Kyler lead the Cardinals to win the NFC West but, be on the look out for Kyler winning next seasons MVP.
Los Angeles Rams, Matt Stafford: The Rams gave up a pretty hefty haul to land Stafford so Sean McVay is praying he works out. With an offensive minded coach like McVay, Stafford should be able to play at a higher level than he has in Detroit.
Seattle Seahawks, Russell Wilson: I think Wilson has maybe two to three more years as a starter so the window is closing on him to get an MVP vote. He has two elite receivers so, next season should be a big one for Wilson.
San Francisco 49ers, Zach Wilson: Another Wilson is going to enter the NFC West and the first thing he’s taking is Jimmy G’s starting spot. Wilson with Kyle Shanahan could be an elite combo.
Three rookies will be taking the helm this season in the NFC and could change the trajectory of their respected franchises. I am so fired up to see new and old faces play in new cities.
