Posted by Jtpsops on 11/29/2011 2:17:00 PM (view original):I guess we should also take into account that 98% of Newton's INTs are good throws that are tipped or missed by his WRs. Dalton's are probably all lame ducks.
Posted by stinenavy on 11/29/2011 2:34:00 PM (view original):And passer rating doesn't take into account Newton's 10 rushing TD's.
Posted by Jtpsops on 11/29/2011 2:41:00 PM (view original):No, but he has more yards per game and a higher average.
That was sort of my point. Most rational people are going to have Brees, Brady, Rodgers as top 3 and have Gabbert, Painter and Bradford near the bottom(maybe Ponder and Grossman replace one here or there) as "effective QB". Dalton, Tebow, Newton, Sanchez, Vick and the like all fit somewhere in the middle. And below Rapey, Manning, Ryan, Stafford.
But stats can prove anything. Saying ANY/A is "TEH BESTEST" is retarded. It's just the one you like.

Posted by Jtpsops on 11/29/2011 2:52:00 PM (view original):Way to change the argument, deano - err, stine.
We were talking about running stats not being taken into account for QB rating. Tebow may not be running it into the endzone, but he's statistically a better runner than Cam.
