We mentioned on July 4th that we would revisit Ron Jaworski's final list once his countdown was complete, and yesterday he announced that Aaron Rodgers would be his #1 QB for the 2012 season.
The rest of the NFC North shaped up with Jay Cutler at #8, Matthew Stafford at #14, and Christian Ponder at #28.
Let's see how our top-10 lists compared with the expert.
Jaw's top-10 is as follows, with my choice from last week in parentheses:
10- Tony Romo (Newton)
9- Joe Flacco (Cutler)
8- Jay Cutler (Ryan)
7- Philip Rivers (Rivers)
6- Ben Roethlisberger (Roethlisberger)
5- Eli Manning (E. Manning)
4- Peyton Manning (P. Manning)
3- Tom Brady (Brady)
2- Drew Brees (Brees)
1- Aaron Rodgers (Rodgers)
Compared to Jaws, I had Cutler ranked one slot lower, and Newton and Ryan instead of Romo and Flacco. But starting at #7, Jaws' ranking matched what I had slotted.
How did your rankings stack up to Jaworski, and what do you think of his final list for 2012?
Oh, and for a bonus link, here is our friend Doug Farrar over at Shutdown Corner throwing in some Cosell-Jaws insight.
