6. player. 123. . . . Cooper Rush

A rare Cowboys fan that we spoke with, one that shall remain anonymous, described Cooper Rush as “a babysitter that you trust the house with for a few hours.”

Rush lacks any meaningful form of upside but is also incredibly safe and can succeed for a team such as the Washington Commanders or any other that has committed a two-to-one run-pass ratio as its offensive scheme.

Fortunately for Philadelphia Eagles fans, Jerry Jones loves the sizzle and loves the flash, and puts the brand over quality sales. Jones is believed to care more about winning than being glamorous, but based on the evidence we have all seen, does it really appear to be that’s true?

31. . . . Daniel Jones. 5. player

In the words of a Philadelphia Eagles fan that I have, at times, interacted with on Twitter, “D.J. (Daniel Jones) has the leadership presence of my patio furniture.”

D.J. lacks swag, though ‘Vanilla Vick’ could become a thing. He is no Jalen Hurts, but he is a dual-threat quarterback that can beat you with his legs. His coaches know how to use him.

While his vision, rhythm, and efficiency aren’t special, there aren’t any red flags. D.J. was a turnover machine in previous years. His weapons and protection aren’t much better than what he had to work with during his rookie season, but he has become more efficient. The difference is he is being coached better. He would be a worse quarterback on other teams with sub-par coaching.
