Defence wins games and offence brings fans to their feet.
So we believe.
Yesterday, we detailed for you 11 great NFL defensive players that teams can rally and build around and today we put the white hot spotlight on the best offensive stars in the game.
From strong-armed quarterbacks to fleet receivers and punishing running backs, there is hardly a shortage of talent from the offensive line of scrimmage around the NFL.
With mandatory mini-camps soon to break and the Rob Gronkowski summer party tour winding down, we give you 10 of the best and brightest offensive wizards in the league (in no particular order).
When looking at a true franchise player, we started with the reigning MVP and Offensive Player of the Year. Despite all his sulking after last year’s ho-hum debut in a Super Bowl loss, Newton is and will continue to be one of the game’s most electric players. After leading the Panthers to a 15-1 record and a berth in the big game (where they lost to Denver 24-10), we see bigger and brighter things in Newton’s future. In just five seasons, Auburn grad Newton has established himself not only as an elite passer, but one of the better runners in the league, running backs included. He achieved his best passer rating last season at 99.4, threw for 3,837 yards and 35 TDs, as well as rushing for 636 more yards and 10 more scores.
