The Most Protected Quarterbacks in the NFL

February 4, 2016   ·     ·   Jump to comments

It's no secret that today's NFL is a quarterback-driven league. It is generally the teams with the top signal-callers who are able to sustain success, and those without them often find it difficult to remain consistently competitive.
Of course, even the best quarterbacks sometimes need a little help to perform at a high level. While a team can rarely succeed without an effective quarterback, a quarterback can't always be at his best without adequate protection.
It's that protection we are going to focus on today. While this is a list of current quarterbacks, we aren't going to concern ourselves too much with how the passers themselves fared during the 2015 season. 
Instead, we'll be looking at the protection surrounding each signal-caller, whether it comes from a standout offensive line, a strong running game or a talented team simply built to make things easier on its quarterback.
For these guys, it's all about the protection.
