Zoners,
You can find my 2022 year end rankings here: https://cowboyszone.com/threads/c-moneys-top-10-qbs-of-2022.508253/
I never did put out my preseason ranking as they wouldn't have changed from the end of the year. However, I thought a midway point ranking would be good conversation.

1. Patrick Mahomes. To be the man you have to beat the man. Not in a game or anything like that but you're going to have to prove it to me and so far, even in a down year for Mahomes, no one has.

2. Tua. He was in the bottom half of my top ten to end the year but a lot of that was based on injury and skepticism. He's cleared that up so far this year. Number One again in rating and 6th in QBR. Leading the league in Yards and Passing TDS. Staying healthy too.

3. Josh Allen. Small slip from the 2 spot for Allen. He's still a stud but the INTs are something to watch.

4. Burrow. Rough start to the year and an injury but he is as hot as any QB in the league and could easily be higher by the end of the year.

5. Dak. Dak is a tough one for me to judge this year statistically because of the style of games played. Before the Eagles game, we either won by 20+ or lost by a large margin and Dak didn't play late in a lot of those games. But still, played well early and if not for Burrow would be the hottest QB over the last 3 games. He's playing at an extremely high level.

6. Hurts. This was a tough call between 6 and 7 for me but I'm giving the slight edge to Hurts here. He is performing well in all categories and is doing so with an injury.

7. Herbert. Could easily be 6 but I gave the nod to Hurts. He is falling behind in production (bye week) but even on a per game basis not performing at the level of the other guys.

8. Brock Purdy. I don't care much for him. But he was off to such a hot start and if it was the injury that slowed him down, he could be in for a big second half.

9. Kirk Cousins. Would be higher but the injury knocks him down to 9 and will be off the list come the end of the year. Can't argue with his production though. Leads the league in Yards per game (a few without Jefferson) 2nd in TDs with missing a game+. 3rd in rating. etc.etc. Tough injury. Sad.

10. Goff. Just slightly edging out Lamar here Jared Goff takes the 10 spot. This is as close, if not closer than Hurts and Herbert 6/7. Could go either way but I'm giving the slightest nod to Goff.

Well, there you have it.
Enjoy!

Only halfway through the season and this is only one huge stat....
but if anyone cares, here are the leaders in Total TDs - Total Turnovers so far

  1. Allen +13 (25 Tds - 12 Turnvoers)
  2. Herbert +12
  3. Stroud +12 ...but got +5 of that in one game...lol...tied 2nd
  4. Hurts +11
  5. Cousins +10
  6. Tua +10.....tied 5th
  7. Goff +9
  8. Prescott +9..tied 7th
  9. Wilson +9...tied 7th
  10. Mayfield +8
Mahomes is usually near the top of this but he has a ton of turnovers this year so far. I'm sure he'll climb
Plus, we already know who he is.
Burrow is rising too, but his awful start will take a while to overcome.

Me too mostly but Lamar is playing great right now and probably deserves to be in the middle of that list and frankly CJ Stroud is knocking on the door despite being a rookie on a crummy team.
Yeah Stroud has been outstanding for sure. Lamar has been great too.

Stroud is in that "next 5 group" to me, right now. He keeps this up, top 10, MAYBEEEEEE.

Some of your statements suggest that this is not based on an assessment of the entire first half, you are also rating them based on how they are trending.

For example, you stated that Burrow had a rough start. That rough start was still a part of his first half performance.

If we are to rate QB's according to how they are presently trending then consider the last three games for each QB:

Dak is ranked #1 in passer rating with 120.7, almost 8 points better than 2nd place Lamar Jackson.

Dak is ranked #1 in average yards per attempt.

Dak is ranked #1 in TD percentage.

Dak is also a top 5 in INT rate, success rate, passing yards and completion percentage over the last three games.

If any quarterback in the league has been making up for a rough start, it is definitely Dak Prescott.

Good job giving Tua some respect.

Cousins & Purdy are definitely in the top 5 season to date.

Lamar certainly should also be near the top of the list.
