Grading NFLs next generation of quarterb

Hats off to the young quarterbacks for their efforts in Week 9, collectively, the finest performances from this group I've evaluated to date this season.Now, they weren't all perfect. struggled immensely in his first start on the road against the , and despite their monstrous upset victory over the , did not have a strong outing against Buffalo. didn't do much in the beatdown of the in Carolina.But , , , and were all fantastic.A grand total of seven quarterbacks selected in the past two cla ses saw considerable playing time -- more than 10 pa s attempts -- during an absolutely bananas Week 9. Let's dive deep into the individual efforts of each quarterback and a sign a Jamaal Wilkes Jersey grade on a per-snap basis, taking every individual aspect of their performance into account. LAC QB #10 CMP%66.1YDs2350TD18INT6YD/Att7.37 Best Throws:In the third, while drifting right, Herbert ripped a sideline throw to for 15 yards right before the safety flew toward the sideline to break up the pa s.On the next play, he placed a gorgeous ball to down the same sideline with tight in coverage. It gave the tall tight end a high-point opportunity, and he came down with it.Later in the third, Herbert rolled to his right then made an impo sible long throw acro s the field deep to that couldn't have had better ball placement.On the first play of the fourth quarter, Herbert fired a laser through traffic into for 18 yards.Worst Throws:On Herbert's first throw of the game, he rolled out and had Allen wide open down the field but overthrew him.In the fourth, Herbert mi sed on a short out route near the sideline.Summary:Herbert's performance was much more workmanlike than his stat line -- 32 of 38 for 356 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions Julius Randle Jersey . It was much more about Herbert getting the ball out quickly underneath to open receivers and tight ends than making a litany of difficult throws, which is typically the game. Altogether a strong albeit different effort from the budding superstar.Grade: A-Season Grade: B CIN QB #9 CMP%68.2YDs2497TD20INT11YD/Att8.73 Best Throws:Early in the first, on a flea-flicker, Burrow threw with perfect placement and trajectory on a sideline throw to that needed to be up and over an underneath defender.In the second, Burrow had to make an anticipation throw on a deep comeback by Higgins.Late in the third, as he was being hit, Burrow threaded the needle to over the middle for 11 yards.A few plays later, he ripped a dime to Chase into the end zone but the ball was dropped against tight coverage.In the fourth, Burrow placed a high-arcing pa s into Chase's hands deep down the field, but the rookie wideout wasn't able to secure the ball as he went to the ground.Worst Throws:The interception-turned-99-yard-pick-six was simply forced and made too late to .Burrow's third-quarter interception was tipped, but the throw was behind Chase on a slant.Later in the third, Burrow escaped the pocket to his left and held the ball far too long to take a bad sack.Summary:Second-straight disappointing lo s, second-straight strong individual performance from Burrow. He was good in the quick game, threw with high-end accuracy deep and didn't have many bad throws, especially after the pick six early in the contest. Grade: BSeason Grade: B- PHI QB #1 CMP%61.5YDs1981TD11INT4YD/Att7.26 Best Throws:Early in the game, Hurts reversed his field behind the line and took a hit before finding open for 18 yards.In the third, Hurts somehow fit the ball into on a deep cro ser for 19 yards with defenders in tight.In the fourth, Hurts threw Michael Cooper Jersey with anticipation and accuracy on a long out-route to Smith for 19 yards near the left sideline.Midway through the fourth, Hurts caught the shotgun snap and immediately had a free rusher in his face, he escaped to the outside and demonstrated his acceleration for an 11-yard scramble.His touchdown to Smith in the fourth was an a sertive strike over the middle on a long throw.WorstThrows:Hurts misfired high on an over route by Goedert in the first quarter.In the third, while unnece sarily fading away, Hurts mi sed Smith in the back corner of the end zone.Summary:Stock up for Hurts. The have some talented pieces on defense, and the second-year quarterback didn't have problems connecting on difficult throws and navigating through the Chargers pa s rush for most of the contest. Also, the bad decisions were hardly there.Grade: A-Season Grade: B- CHI QB #1 CMP%59.4YDs1282TD4INT8YD/Att6.86 Best Throws:While rolling left and with a defender Nick Van Exel Jersey in his face, Fields found open on a vertical route down the sideline for 25 yards.Late in the second, he fired a pa s high and outside to , where the tight end had the best opportunity to make the catch in the end zone, but he couldn't haul it in.At the start of the fourth, Fields made one of the best throws I've seen from any first or second year quarterback all season, an absolute laser down the seam to Graham between two defenders for 28 yards.The touchdown to give the the lead late was a fantastic display of his athleticism to evade pa s rushers and touch.Worst Throws:On the second throw of the game, Fields had open down the field but overthrew his speedy wideout down the sideline.In the first, Fields led Goodwin too far on an in-breaking route that could've led to a ma sive hit and fell incomplete.In the third, he mi sed outside on an out-breaking route to Mooney.Fields had an over-the-middle throw knocked away/almost picked.Summary:The Bears lost but should be super-encouraged by the way Fields has slowly but surely progre sed this season and how dynamic he was against the defense on the road in prime time. He made a variety of big-time throws down the field and did a solid job taking care of the football.Grade: A-Season Grade: B- NE QB #10 CMP%68.0YDs2135TD10INT7YD/Att7.12 Best Throws:Late in the second, Jones dropped a perfectly lofted pa s into down the field for 28 yards.On Jones' touchdown to , he waited for an underneath defender to clear and threw it low and away from the defender on top of the route. Ideal timing and ball placement.Worst Throws:His interception over the middle to was Wilt Chamberlain Jersey thrown directly to the cornerback, too far out in front of the in-breaking receiver.In the third, Jones misfired on a short out-breaker to .On the next two plays, Jones tried lofting the ball near the end zone but both pa ses were well overthrown and fell incomplete.Summary:Different day, same type of outing from Jones.
