I'll let Brent from Eagles Rewind explain,
I’m going to use QB Rating, with all relevant caveats acknowledged. For our categories, I’m using the following:
Bad: < 75
- Tom Brady has a “bad” game roughly 25% of the time.
- Drew Brees has a “bad” game nearly 1/3 of the time.
- Even Peyton Manning doesn’t crack a rating of 75 in almost 20% of his starts.
That doesn’t even include the incidence of “poor” games either. When you add that in, you can start to see the point I’m trying to make. Even the best QBs in the league have what fans would consider a bad game fairly often. Now they do, obviously, provide a high rate of “great” games as well, that’s what makes them “great quarterbacks”.
A couple more notes:
- Tony Romo compares favorably too both Drew Brees and Tom Brady (commence vomiting now)
- FutureHallOfFamer Eli Manning’s starts have resulted in either “bad” or “poor” performances more than half the time (54%). Let that sink in….if you randomly picked a game from Eli’s career, you’re more likely to get a poor/bad game than a decent/good/great game.
However, in the same breath, it is totally nauseating seeing Tony Romo put up good numbers.
Take the good with the bad, right?
