The Best of the NFC West: Quarterbacks

Niner Noise along with raisingzona.com, ramblinfan.com and 12thmanrising.com are currently working to come up with the best NFC West players, an “NFC West All-Star Team” if you will.

Today we look at the quarterback position.

Arizona Cardinals: Matt Leinart

Matt Leinart has championship experience, albeit in college and by learning from former QB Kurt Warner ever since he entered the league Leinart has the potential to be a successful quarterback for the Cardinals.  Leinart takes over the team with just 17 NFL starts.

Seattle Seahawks:  Matt Hasselbeck

Matt Hasselbeck has more career starts than all the other NFC West QB’s combined.  Although injuries have hampered his production the last few seasons his experience also extends to the playoffs and a Super Bowl appearance.

St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford will be the starter for the Rams which is in part due to his talent but also because he is the default QB when you look at the rest of the options on the roster.  Bradford will turn the Rams into contenders again but that may take a few seasons.

San Francisco 49ers: Alex Smith

Alex Smith ended last season with a 5-5 record throwing 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.  Smith has more confidence now than he has ever had in his career and will be looking to silence his detractors this season as a draft bust.

My Take:

Looking at the NFC West quarterbacks there is really not much competition as to who is the best QB in the division.  The only one who has playoff experience, won the division and appeared in a Super Bowl is Matt Hasselbeck.

Your input will help determine who should represent the NFC West.  Vote now!
