The AFC South has some very good skill players on offense, but which team has the best quarterback?
There are some very exciting players in the AFC South, and on the offensive side of the field the four teams in the division — the Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars — all believe they are the top team in the division. If they don’t think so, they’ll not even be in the discussion of winning the AFC South by the time the end of the season arrives.
In looking at the four teams in the AFC South, the following trios that each team boasts looks like this:

Now, in the first of a three-article series, how do we get to the point of deciding who has the best trio of players in the AFC South? The best way is to compare all of the position players and rank them like so, with one category for quarterbacks, one for running backs and one for the top wide receiver on the roster.
We’ll use last season’s stats, career stats, the potential of the player and just how important the player is to the trio itself, which results shows their importance to their franchise, too. The top player in each category will receive four points and then go down all the way to a single point. The team with the most points will be the top trio in the AFC South.
Even with the Texans being the reigning AFC South champions, there is the fact the Colts sent Houston packing in the playoffs, the Jaguars added a new starting quarterback and the Titans nearly made the playoffs last season, meaning there is some tough competition in the AFC South.
Who do you believe is the top trio in the AFC South? Next are the rankings of the quarterbacks in the first of a three-article series.
