The Philadelphia Eagles are set to face some heavy-hitters at the QB position.

It’s probably the most recognizable position in all of the four major professional sports. Philadelphia Eagles fans will never be labeled as being casual, but every NFL fan knows that those casual and, sometimes, bandwagon fans exist. Heck, you’ve seen Dallas Cowboys fans abandon the team in times of trouble.

Most of those casual fans or the citizens of any city housing a professional football team that may not follow the game closely normally share one characteristic. They may not be able to tell you who every starter is on offense or defense, but they can normally tell you who their team’s starting quarterback is.

Teams that win and do so consistently normally have a great one. The teams that don’t win often haven’t found their franchise guy. It’s as simple as that.

Heading into the 2021-2022 NFL regular season, here’s the skinny for Birds fans. Jalen Hurts gets 17 games to prove that he’s the guy, but he’s going to have to duel some good quarterbacks, including two of the best to ever play the position. Here’s a ranking of each one he’ll see from top to bottom.

Or is it bottom to top if we’re counting them down? Anyway, you get the idea.

So, who tops this list? Is it Tom Brady, the greatest quarterback of all time, or Patrick Mahomes, the best quarterback of our time? You won’t have to wait any longer to find out. Let’s count them down.
