Ranking the AFC West Quarterbacks

There is some pretty talented quarterbacks in the AFC West. All have their question marks, but all could also potentially have Pro Bowl seasons. Whether it be tried and true experience or young intriguing talents. Here’s how they stack up in my view. 1. Chargers – Philip Rivers Just when you think ‘hey, maybe this is the year Rivers slows down’, nope.
