    I've looked at 7 quarterbacks in the playoffs so far with this method

    A "win" is when the quarterback posted a better rating than that allowed by his opponent in the regular season, and a "loss" is when the quarterback posted a worse rating than that allowed by his opponent in the regular season. A "tie" occurs when the quarterback had a rating within one point in either direction.


    Example:


    The 49ers this season held QBs to a 78 rating.

    Lets say Flacco has a 72 rating against the 49ers in the SB.

    That would be a loss for Flacco, because he performed below the average performance yielded by the 49er defense.


    I'm hoping to do a bunch more, but this takes a little time. The 7 so far:



    (UPDATED. Currently 16 quarterbacks done)



    Bart Starr 9-1-0 (.900)

    Terry Bradshaw 16-3-0 (.842)

    Joe Montana 18-3-2 (.826)

    Steve Young 10-3-1 (.750)

    Aaron Rodgers 6-2-0 (.750)

    Johnny Unitas 6-2-0 (.750)

    Eli Manning 8-3-0 (.727)

    Brett Favre 17-7-0 (.708)

    Troy Aikman 10-4-1 (.700)

    Peyton Manning 13-6-1 (.675)

    Tom Brady 14-7-3 (.646)

    Ben Roethlisberger 9-5-0 (.643)

    John Elway 13-8-1 (.614)

    Joe Flacco 7-5-0 (.583)

    Dan Marino 9-9-0 (.500)

    Jim Kelly 7-9-1 (.441)


    Just out of curiousity, I looked at Russell Wilson's playoff and regular season to see how he fared.

    Playoff record: 2-0 +16.5 avg per game.

    By comparison, Joe Montana has an avg. of +26.8 per game. Peyton Manning is at +16.1 per game. Bart Starr is an incredible +44.2. RW, though it's only two games, is ahead of the likes of Elway, Kelly, Marino and both Mannings. Bradshaw, Montana, Young, Starr are ahead of him. Nice company for a rookie.

    Regular season:

    AZ: L -8.7
    Dall: W +18
    GB: W +22.5
    St. Lo: L -38.7
    Caro: L -9.4
    NE: W +46.8
    SF: L -39.3
    Det.: W +5.1
    Minn: W +35
    NYJ: W +52.8
    Mia: W +42.5
    Chi: W +33.7
    AZ: W +16.8
    Buff: W +20
    SF: W +37.3
    St. Lo: W +52.1

    12-4 +17.9

    His four losses came in the first half of the season. He played badly vs Carolina but we won anyways. He played lights out vs Miami, but we lost anyways. He played well enough vs Detroit, but again we lost. Both those losses and the loss to Atlanta rests on the Defense. RW did enough to win.

    anyways, it's an interesting idea the guy had. Mean anything? Well, the best QB's that pass the eyeball test turn out to be the best QB's under his system, so I think it has some merit.

  • Thank you.
    Week 1 of the preseason vs. The Tennessee Titans, I said the Seahawks were winning the superbowl...

  • very cool

    Note that sure RW had a 12-4 record regular season record in this but he went 11-0 to close which is pretty cool

    Yeah, for our QB to have such a fantastic day against the craptastic Dolphins and then have their rookie QB just annihilate our supposed "elite" defense like he did....ugh! :pukeface:
