2. Tom Brady (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

• Cumulative ranking: 2.33
• Highest ranking: 1
• Lowest ranking: 3

Somewhat surprisingly, Tom Brady only received one first-place vote from our panel. But it should be telling that no one ranked him lower than third in the NFL, and it's obvious why.

Brady is not only the greatest quarterback in NFL history, but the fact that he's still arguably the best QB in football at age 44 is a feat we may never seem duplicated.

Brady was an MVP candidate throughout the 2021 season finishing with an NFL-best 43 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. He completed 67 percent of his passes while leading the league with an insane 5,316 passing yards.

Brady's season came to an abrupt end in dramatic fashion in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but that shouldn't take away from the season he put together. As long as he's still playing, Brady will remain among the NFL's elite passers.

1. Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers)

• Cumulative ranking: 1.5
• Highest ranking: 1
• Lowest ranking: 2

Three of our six voters ranked Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers first on their lists while none of the six ranked him lower than second. He was the obvious choice to be QB1 in our rankings.

Rodgers was something special in 2021. The future Hall of Famer finished with 37 touchdowns and just four interceptions leading the NFL in both touchdown and interception percentage.

He helped lead the Packers to a 13-4 record and the No. 1 seed in the NFC, only to suffer a shocking first-round exit at the hands of Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers.

While his disappointing playoff performance is still fresh in the minds of many, Aaron Rodgers was the best quarterback in 2021, and that notion shouldn't be forgotten
