FINALLY. It is officially football season. After months of draft rumors, training camp hype, and guesses based on little-to-no information, the season finally kicked off last night. Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks took advantage of a bad game from Aaron Rodgers to rout the Packers. Judging from last night, the Seahawks are not suffering from anything close to a super bowl hangover.

Here at Sneaker Report, we love the action, but we really love the cleats. Last week we did a breakdown of what cleats all the top running backs in the league wear. But since the NFL has become a passing league, we felt the need to provide the masses with the cleats all the top Quarter Backs will be strapping on this season.

Pay attention. These are the shoes that some of the best QBs in the league will be wearing. The guys wearing these cleats could break records, lead late-game drives, and maybe even win you your fantasy matchup.

Reebok Zig Blaze

Athlete: Peyton Manning
Team: Denver Broncos

Peyton is the reigning top QB for good reason. He demolished records last year in his Reebok Zig Blaze. He didn't need to move around much, but his cleats provided him with enough support to escape from would-be sackers, move up in the pocket, and complete a pass downfield. I'd say they served him well, as he threw for 55 touchdowns and was sacked only 18 times.

Nike Lunar Superbad Pro

Athlete: Drew Brees
Team: New Orleans Saints

Drew Brees rocks the Nike Lunar Superbad Pro, a popular choice among quarterbacks. The cleats provide great stably and are super durable - kind of like Brees himself. The NFC South is going to be a dogfight this year, but if Drew Brees can have another great season, nobody is counting out the Saints.

Nike Zoom Alpha Talon

Athlete: Aaron Rodgers
Team: Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers had the honor of kicking off the 2014 season last night against Seattle. Let's just say things did not go so well. It didn't matter how much lightweight Flywire was packed into his cleats, Rodgers could not escape the Seahawks legendarily good defense.

Under Armour C1N MC

Athlete: Cam Newton
Team: Carolina Panthers

Cam will once again be rocking his signature shoe from Under Armour. As the leader of the cinderella Panthers last year, he is hoping to lead them back to the playoffs in the face of all odds. His Under Armour C1N were built specifically to handle his unique mix of passing ability and rushing force.

adidas RG3 Boost

Athlete: Robert Griffin III
Team: Washington Redskins

2014 will mark a change for RGIII. This offseason adidas gave him the full treatment featuring a line of trainers, apparel, and of course cleats. The cleats so far have gotten great reviews for their stability and lightness. It remains to be seen if they can help Griffin get back to his rookie level of play.

Under Armour Custom

Athlete: Tom Brady
Team: New England Patriots

Every year, there are doubters. "He's too old," they say. "Look at his wideouts," bemoan the masses. When he faltered to start last season, the chorus rose to a boom. Then of course, because he is Tom Brady, he finished the year on a tear and shut everyone up. He might never throw for 50 touchdowns again, but look for Brady to be productive once again in his custom Under Armour cleats.

Nike Vapor Talon Elite 3/4

Athlete: Colin Kaepernick
Team: San Fransisco 49ers

Kaepernick is a new breed of QB. He is a towering 6'4"beast who can sling it up the seam against the cover two or tuck and run for a first down. Kaepernick wears the 3/4 cut of the Vapor Talon so he has enough support to stay upright in the pocket, and enough speed to get outside and create plays.

Nike Alpha Pro TD

Athlete: Jay Cutler
Team: Chicago Bears

When opponents see Cutler step up to the line of scrimmage in his Nike Alpha Pro TD, they will be scared. Cutler will be flanked by the new "Monsters of the Midway' - this time two gigantic receivers named Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. When watching the Bears try not to focus too much on the cleats, or you might miss a 50 yard bomb to one of his wide outs.

Under Armour Crushers

Athlete: Eli Manning
Team: New York Giants

Oh, you're saying Eli isn't one of the top QB's in the league? It doesn't matter. I bleed blue and this guy won us two rings. For some of his bigger games, he has opted for a traditional black and white Reebok, but this past offseason his contract with Reebok ran out. So far during the preseason, he has trotted out a pair of sleek, black Under Armour Crushers.
