I'm not looking for a particular order here, but suppose we have a scenario where every team has exactly one of the best 32 QBs in the league (ie The best backup is not as good as the worst starter), who are these QBs?

IMO,

Brady
Garoppolo
Tyrod Taylor
Tannehill
Moore
McCown

Luck
Mariota
Watson
Bortles

Roethlisberger
Flacco
Dalton
McCarron

Rivers
Alex Smith
Carr
Siemian

Manning
Prescott
Wentz
Cousins

Brees
Ryan
Winston
Newton

Rodgers
Bradford
Bridgewater
Stafford

Wilson
Palmer


The guys in bold currently aren't first stringers.

So I currently rank Garoppolo, Moore and AJ McCarron as the three best backup QBs in the league with Kessler, Glennon, Goff and Hoyer not good enough to be starters. Teddy Bridgewater is an anomaly of course due to his injury.

I've gambled a bit putting Desean Watson in but I think he's the most pro ready of the rookies and has the best shot to start in week 1.

The others mostly pick themselves. Interesting situation to watch is Denver because Trevor Siemian proved he's starting calibre last year but if they go with Lynch and he plays well then Siemian is suddenly one of the best backups in the league, but I honestly think they have two low end starters but neither will ever be pro bowlers.

Bortles was awful last year but very good in 2015 so I have faith in him to turn it around.

Maybe it's just me not understanding the premise of this question or debate, but I don't see what you're getting at here tbh. No offense.

Literally just asking what backups are better than what starters
