Ron Jaworski has revisited his NFL quarterback rankings at the quarter-point of the season in an Insider piece. Let’s take a look at where he puts AFC West signal-callers:
Peyton Manning, Denver
Comment: Manning is still a high-level quarterback, no doubt.
Philip Rivers, San Diego
Comment: I think Rivers is a tad underranked. His numbers are down, but he has been efficient and is not working with a great supporting cast right now.
Carson Palmer, Oakland
Comment: Jaworski’s comments about Palmer are better than his ranking -- Palmer still has plenty of ability.
Matt Cassel, Kansas City
Comment: The pressure is on Cassel, who is candidate to be replaced at any time. This ranking is not surprising.
