Best Quarterback Numbers

Recommended Posts

I've always thought 19 would be a cool number to wear if I were a quarterback. I also like 15 and 16. Just personal preferences, really.

 

Side note: I've recently been thinking about how the Washington Football Team has had a quarterback on the roster who wore number 8 every year for the past decade

2010-13: Rex Grossman

2014-17: Kirk Cousins

2018: Josh Johnson

2019: Case Keenum

2020: Kyle Allen

I honestly think about the Washington 8 way more than I should too. It’s mind blowing how often a QB chooses to wear that number upon arrival with the team.

And from someone who's not old enough to have watched him live, Doug Flutie rocking #20 for the Stamps looks weird in highlight footage, even with the CFL's more lax number specifications.

Then it’s going to blow your mind that the most famous moment of this guy’s football career

was against this guy.

And if you take it back one decade prior...

I hope Washington never gets rid of these classic uniforms. All they need to do is replace the numbers with the W or roundel logo and bring back the stripes.

I'm gonna reveal how young I am, but out of those three guys, Brunnell is the only one I remember.

Not sure where to put this plus it’s likely just a weird coincidence and has zero meaning. I just thought it was neat.

 

There’s three QBs in the NFL with the last name Allen

 

Both Kyle & Brandon wear 8

Josh wears 17

1+7=8

 

Hear me out, Josh Allen wears 8 by proxy of the other Allens

I don't think there are any BAD numbers for QBs per say, but I do think of certain QB numbers in terms of "pocket passer vs scrambler/athlete/or gunslinger". Seems wrong to see an 8 or 16 to scramble, stuff like that

Hypothetically speaking, say Matt Stafford ends up in Washington for 2021, should he do what Dwayne Haskins did with Joe Theismann and call up Sonny Jurgensen for use of 9? Or should he switch to another number?

 

I’d love to hear @BBTV’s thoughts on a potential situation like this.

If he does, I'll be rooting for nothing less than a snapped femur - and for someone else to take any of his accolades away, because that's basically what unretiring a number is - except that it's just about the highest award a team can give a player.  There better be marrow on the turf.

There it is.

Despite the fact that some of the best scrambling QBs of all time wore number 8…

Seeing Chad Henne in action last week reminded me of how much I also like No. 4 for a QB.
