The unquestioned leader of NFL teams is usually the quarterback. A quarterbackplays one of the most important roles on the field as the leader who has to knowboth the offense and the playbook by heart. Who are the quarterbacks you would most want in charge of your offense?

#1: Tom Brady

One of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time started his career as a sixth round draft pick for the New England Patriots. Once he finally got a chance to start, all he did was lead his team to four Super Bowl victories en route to becoming one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time.

#2: Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers didn’t have a great season last year, but he undoubtedly remains one of the best quarterbacks in the league.

Despite the poor season, the Packers still nearly managed to defeat the Cardinals in the playoffs. Now that he has Jordy Nelson back, expect Rodgers to return to his NFL MVP form for 2016.

#3: Cam Newton

Cam Newton proved that he can carry a team last season by passing for 35 touchdowns and scoring 10 more on the ground. The star Panthers quarterbackmanaged to lead his team to a Super Bowl evenwithout his best receiver, Kelvin Benjamin, who willmake Newton even better in 2016.

#4: Russell Wilson

​Since joining the Seahawks in 2012, Wilson has led Seattle to one Super Bowl win and playoff appearances in every year since he joined the team. Wilson had his best season yet in 2015, passing for more than 4,000 yards and 34 touchdowns.

In 2016, Seattle's star quarterback will try to get the Seahawks another Super Bowl victory.

#5: Ben Roethlisberger

Ben Roethlisberger has been one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL since he was drafted in 2004. He has helped the Steelers to perennially compete for the playoffs and has led them to Super Bowl victories against the Seahawks and Cardinals.

#6: Andrew Luck

Andrew Luck’s injury in 2015 revealed just how much the Colts have to rely on Luck to carry them to victories. The star quarterback hadn’t missed the playoffs since being selected in the 2012 NFL draft, but Luck’s injury proved too much for the Colts to overcome. If he's healthy in 2016, expect the Colts to challenge the Texans for the AFC South title.

#7: Drew Brees

The 9 time Pro Bowler for the Saints couldn’t lead them to the playoffs last season, but he did lead the NFL in passing yards for the 6th time in his career. Brees managed to throw for 32 touchdowns and had only 11 interceptions in 2015, but his defense failed to give him enough support to win games.

#8: Philip Rivers

Five time Pro Bowler Philip Rivers didn’t have a great year in 2015, but he was surrounded by a battered supporting cast that didn’t give him much help. Rivers has always done his best to keep theChargers in the playoff hunt, including his first season as an NFL starter, when the Chargers posted a fabulous record of 14-2. If the Chargers could get a better defense and stay healthy, they would certainly have a quarterback who can still help a team contend for a Super Bowl.

#9: Tony Romo

Tony Romo’s importance to the success of the Cowboys’ offense was proven when he went down with an injury that caused him to miss all of 2015. Without the star quarterback, the Cowboys limpedto an awful 4-12 record a year after they had dominated the NFC East by going 12-4 with Romo at the helm.

#10: Kirk Cousins

The replacement for Robert Griffin has already proven himself as a great NFL by leading the Redskins to an NFC East title. In 2015, Cousins threw for more than 4000 passing yards and had 29 touchdowns. Even more important, Cousins had only 11 interceptions in that time frame. If the Redskins are going to contend for another NFC East title, they’ll need the quarterbackto repeat his unbelievable 2015 season in 2016.
