For many years, the NFL was dominated by a certain brand of quarterback.
Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees, and Philip Rivers were long-time staples of the league.
With all of those players now retired, there is a new regime at the position, each primed to create a legacy of their own.
Since Brady retired, he has been incredibly active in NFL news, including recent comments about quarterbacks moving forward.

Jalen Hurts, Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, and Josh Allen have been identified as the newest superstars at the position.
Several other quarterbacks are well on their way to achieving this status as well but haven’t made that jump quite yet.
As Brady puts it, he isn’t necessarily a fan of one team or another, but rather individual players that make the game much more enjoyable to watch.
For years, the NBA has been seen as a players league for fans.
It appears that the NFL is shifting that way as well, as many fans have pledged their allegiances to players across the league.
For example, Derek Carr has been a lifelong member of the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders.
Wherever his next move is, there will be plenty of Raiders fans that will still be fans of Carr but might not necessarily be fans of the team that he plays for.
Peyton Manning is another famous example, going from the Indianapolis Colts to the Denver Broncos, bringing a following with him.
