Cardinals QB situation in question

A recent article by Yahoo Sports suggests that the Cardinals quarterback situation ranks among the worst in the NFL.

Yahoo Sports isn't a fan of Carson Palmer, Drew Stanton or Logan Thomas.

The news outlet recently ranked the Arizona Cardinals' quarterback situations as one of the 10 worst in the NFL.

Granted, that opinion may change should Palmer come back fully healthy - which he appears to be on track to do - but nonetheless Arizona's quarterback position isn't overwhelming folks around the league.

Palmer was on track for a career season before going down with a torn ACL in 2014. Through six games a year ago, Palmer had thrown for 1,626 yards, 11 touchdowns and had a QB Rating of 95.6.

Stanton, who filled in admirably for Palmer following the injury, compiled a QB Rating of 78.7 which is certainly respectable for a backup. Stanton ended up throwing for 1,711 yards along with seven touchdowns and five interceptions.

Thomas, meanwhile, remains a developmental prospect who coach Bruce Arians and company will continue to groom for the future.

The Yahoo report could be slightly overlooking Arizona's signal callers but teams around the league have also been making a priority of improving the game's most important position - which certainly plays a role in the league-wide rankings.
