No position in the NFL can make or break a season quite like the quarterback.
A team with a great starter and some injury luck is likely a playoff contender. Lose a great starter and have nothing behind him, and that playoff season can go up in smoke in a hurry. Any kind of deficiency at the position is almost always the beginning of the end in the NFL.聽

There really isn’t much to like about the quarterback depth chart.
