CSR Wednesday Night Debate Thread: Who's the Best QB in the NFC South?

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

This week's Gillette debate involves the best QB's in the league...check that..."Which QB is leading the pack?". I decided to make it about the NFC South. So which QB is having the best season of the four in the NFC South? That is Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, Cam Newton & Josh Freeman.

I've provided some key stats to help you with your decision since I would hate for you to make a knee jerk reaction instead of a sound educated decision ;) I mean, we love our fellow NFC South QB's around here!

So if you think passing yards is all that is important than Brees is your guy. Ryan is 3rd and Newton 14th followed closely by Freeman at 15th.
