I am a very big fan of "-per game" statistics. Looking at these statistics gives you a good idea of what to expect from a player on a game-by-game basis. I also buy into the "what have you done for me lately" mindset. Looking at what a players was like 5 years ago doesn't tell you much about the player right now.
That being said, I would like to take a poll trying to remove all bias from the equation and see who's statistics (per game last season) we would prefer to see chucking to
Brandon Marshall Davone Bess this year.
To make it more interesting, I won't tell you who QB1, QB2, and QB3 are until my next review post (pt. 2 of 2)... One hint is that both of these players could end up being our guy for the year, but that's as much as I'll say.
Pass yards/game: QB1: 192 QB2: 196 QB3: 157.2
Pass TDs/game: QB1: 1.23 QB2: 1.06 QB3: 1.1
Total TDs/game: QB1: 1.38 QB2: 1.19 QB3: 1.64
INTs/game: QB1: 0.7 QB2: 0.3 QB3: 0.55
Total Turnovers/game: QB1: 1.15 QB2: 0.44 QB3: 1.1
Completion Percentage: QB1: 60.5 QB2: 61.3 QB3: 46.5
Yards/attempt: QB1: 7.2 QB2: 7.1 QB3: 6.4
Sacks/game: QB1: 2.46 QB2: 2.75 QB3: 3
QB Rating: QB1: 87.1 QB2: 90.7 QB3: 72.9
Win % as starter: QB1: .500 QB2: .813 QB3: .636
Now, I know that stats aren't everything and there are variables such as money, experience, leadership, etc. but this is just a look at the straight numbers...
I'm sure many of you guys with inference skills can figure out who QB3 is, and MAYBE QB1... Tell you what, if in the comments you guess correctly, I'll release the names before my next post, which will be my own analysis of the numbers, other factors, and the poll results.
Final note, don't forget to vote in the poll and if you would like to see more of this type of analysis, please "rec" this post and I will continue to make more.
