QUARTERBACK STATS Top 10 in Total Yards: Correlating Touchdowns and Avg. Yards per Completion What it says: Two teams from the AFC East, (Jets and Patriots), have the Top 2 Quarterbacks in total amount of yards thrown through week 11. The list is full of names you would expect to see on there including: Matthew Stafford, Andrew Luck, Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, and Matt Ryan. However; there a few surprises on the list: Blake Bortles, Sam Bradford, and Geno Smith weren't guys going into the season you would think would be putting up these high numbers. 2 Big No-Shows on this List: Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Two guys who are known for racking up passing yards haven't done so thus far into the season. What it means: Having the most passing yards doesn't necessarily correlate to wins. The Jets (3-7), Patriots (6-4), and Falcons (2-8) have been sub-par even with strong numbers from their quarterbacks. Touchdowns: Highly noticeable is the lack of touchdowns per yards put up by Sam Bradford (6), Big Ben (5), and Blake Bortles (4). The amount of yards thrown and the ever so few touchdowns is alarming to statisticians alike. MVP: Aaron Rodgers: With the most touchdowns (17), yards (1,913), and an avg yards per completion (9.4), Rodgers has shown he's not been willing to dink and dunk all game and has led the Packers to a 7-3 record and atop the NFC North. Top 10 QBR: Completions/Attempts/Completion % What it says: Drew Brees and Colin Kaepernick have been extremely efficient, with the two top QBR's and completion percentages over 65%, they've been clicking with their receiving core. Is that Zach Mettenberger and E.J. Manuel I see on this list? Yes, its not a typo. Surprisingly the two young quarterbacks have been smooth, including Mettenberger with a 67% completion percentage. What it means: QBR is extremely important! Here are the records for the teams with the highest QBR: Saints: 7-2, 49ers: 9-1, New York Giants: 9-1, Packers: 7-3. If you're quarterback doesn't have one of the top QBR's then your team may be in big trouble. Top 10 Interceptions: QBR What it says: Interceptions, Interceptions, Interceptions galore. Manziel (35), Newton (27), Rivers (22), Quarterbacks have been tossing it up more than ever, including 13 of those alone to Patrick Willis. There is a direct correlation between Interceptions and QBR (Obviously). If you throw alot of picks then your rating is gonna be in the trash. What it means: Picks = Losses. Johnny Football's Browns are 3-7, Cam's Panthers are 5-6, Bradford's Rams are 2-8. Picks = Wins? In a strange anomaly, picks haven't always meant losses. Phillip Rivers's 22 picks haven't stopped the Chargers from being 8-2 and Joe Fluko's Ravens are 6-4. Interesting Stats: As a league: The top 32 quarterbacks have thrown for: 293 Touchdowns to 517 Interceptions! Of the 6,632 attempts thrown by those quarterbacks there was a total of 51,285 yards. (These stats were compiled by using the top 32 Qb's in the QSF. Top 32 decided by Total Amount of Passing Yards.) My #1: Aaron Rodgers Let me know what you guys think! Who do you think the #1 QB is in the league? MVP? Is your QB missing? Any anomalies?
