The Kansas City Chiefs' Brady Quinn moved up on Ron Jaworski's quarterback chart after his performance on Sunday, going up to 29th. Quinn had a very nice game during the Chiefs' 27-21 win over the Carolina Panthers, going 19 for 23 for 201 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions. It was Quinn's first start since 2009, when he was with the Browns.

Many have thrown dirt on Quinn's career, but Jaws is of the opinion that he may still have a future as an NFL quarterback:

In the right situation, Quinn could be a good quarterback. He had a great game last week under trying circumstances. He just needs confidence in people around him and an organization that has confidence in him. In Kansas City, he has a good cast on offense. I think we'll see him grow and help the Chiefs win some games in the stretch run.

Quinn was drafted in the first round out of Notre Dame, and many thought that he'd have a long and productive career. However, he was never able to put it together in Cleveland, and ended up being traded to Denver, where he didn't get to appear in a game for two seasons. Quinn signed with Kansas City this year as a free agent.

Peyton Manning and Tom Brady are ranked No. 1 and 2.
