Sean Payton Names The NFL's Best Quarterback, Says It's 'Obvious'

Ex-NFL head coach Sean Payton is one of the best talent evaluators in the game. But it doesn't take a genius to figure out who the NFL's best quarterback is. 

Payton told FS1's Colin Cowherd this week that Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the NFL, and it's "obvious." He adds there's "no argument" to be made against his claim. 

Guys like Josh Allen, Justin Herbert, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady may have something to say about that. 

"He's the best," said Payton. "There's no argument. There's no argument."

That's quite the praise from the ex-NFL head coach. Many agree with him, too. 

Patrick Mahomes' only fault at times is that he gets a little too cute with some of his throws. Last year, it cost him at times. But it looks like he got back on track in Week 1.

NFL fans will get to see Mahomes in action tonight when the Chiefs host Justin Herbert and the Chargers.
