A Look At The Top Ten Completion Percentage List

One of the more popular statistics used to evaluate a quarterback in the NFL is completion percentage. This statistic gives an idea of the quarterback’s control. Through the end of the 2007 season, here is a list of the top ten quarterbacks based on their career completion percentage.

1. Chad Pennington
2. Kurt Warner
3. Steve Young
4. Peyton Manning
5. Carson Palmer
6. Daunte Culpepper
7. Drew Brees
8. Marc Bulger
9. Joe Montana
10. Ben Roethlisberger

The interesting thing to note in this list is that all but two of these quarterbacks are still active. Only Joe Montana and Steve Young (coincidentally, teammates at one time) are on this list and retired. Some of these players may not be on this top ten list by the time their careers are over, but some will remain there for many years to come. An interesting thing about the top two players on the list, Chad Pennington has struggled with injury troubles and fallen out of favor with his team’s fans and Kurt Warner has started games for three different teams in a career that has seen him on top of the world and also given up on.
