For these three quarterbacks, the sky is the limit. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, and Oakland Raiders are investing heavily in making sure their young quarterbacks have weapons, are protected, and can find success.
Will it be enough for all of them?
How do those organizations measure success for each QB?
There are plenty of questions surrounding each player, particularly Blake Bortles and Derek Carr. While Bortles has taken a step forward, he was far behind his peers the year before. Carr still has work to do and there are warning signs that many point to, suggesting that he needs to make further steps forward. Meanwhile, Teddy Bridgewater seems above the fray, progressing quickly and impressing.
Who you want to lead your football team goes beyond simply statistics and poise, though. Some people may want a gunslinger in the mold Brett Favre. Others want an accurate passer a la Chad Pennington. Still others are constantly looking for the poise and perfection that Peyton Manning has come to personify for so long in his Hall of Fame career. Still others want a competitor like Tom Brady who does whatever it takes to win and demands the same from his team.
All three quarterbacks have moved on from their rookie seasons, entering year two who do you want leading your team?
