Tossing Numbers Out ThereJune 23, 2011


by Richard Allen II aka @RsAii


Metrics have become a huge part of sports in recent years. It’s broken down to whether or not teams can win in various temperatures, there flight plans, and I wouldn’t be surprised if there wasn’t stat for the wins and losses in a certain home/away jersey. It only makes you stop and wonder, “Who tracks that crap”? I mean seriously, does it matter?

Well apparently, it does, to somebody. So in keeping in that theme, I was asked to breakdown the QB passer ratings for the past season. We were interested in the fine print of the matter, “Does having a QB with a great passer rating equate to wins?”

First things first for all those not in the know, the NFL QB Rating according to wiki is:
“A measure of the performance of quarterbacks compiled by using each quarterback’s completion percentage, passing yardage, touchdowns and interceptions.”

In simple terms it’s, “How much your balling and/or How much your sucking” per game.
Now there is a crazy formula to figure all this out, BUT, for the sake of the headache, we are just going to have you do your own research and get on to the good part. In my Dwight Howard Voice “FACTS DON’T LIE”!! (Yeah it’s a remix!)

For this instance we are going to track the top 10 QB ratings and their teams’ win/loss for the 2010-2011 season, as well as did they make the playoffs. Below is a chart that shows just that. Are you ready? This should be good.


Ok, now that we have the numbers, we ask, what does this mean? From here we can note that it is safe to say that the teams in the NFL this year swam and sunk with there QBs. Of the 12 QBs’ listed, 9 of them were playoff teams. Reading between the lines, the teams with above 10 wins are known for having  stout defenses. Keeping in mind that the Super Bowl matchup was an epic battle of the defenses, both on average only giving up 15 points per game.

Now before I started looking into the numbers, I was actually gearing my argument for one opposing the numbers, as I believe the numbers can’t define a person or a team. It seems that I was wrong.

Based on this simple research, despite the 14-2 Patriots with Tom Brady’s 111.0 rating and the Falcons 13-3 and the NFC East odds on favorite, it was the combo of elite passers (Rogers and Big Ben being top 5) and elite Defense (#1 and #2 in the NFL) that brought us the battle of the Black & Yellow vs. Green & Yellow. Hmm, interesting, so to answer the question, it seems that the QB rating actually DOES matter in making that pick on who is to lead your team to the promise land. If you have a bum, you get bum results. I guess facts really don’t lie!! (Dwight Howard Voice)

That’s All I Have!!
