Quarterback is one position where there is an overabundance of statistics, not to mention wins and losses, to quantify how a passer is playing. But statistics are results-based numbers and often owe as much or more to players other than the quarterback. That influence from other players can warp or distort the perception of the quarterback’s play, effectively giving him credit or punishing him for things he had nothing to do with.
The basic tenet of Pro Football Focus' grading has always been to try and isolate the play of individuals from the rest of the team, giving you a true reflection of what they did, regardless of whether that was rewarded by teammates picking up the baton.
A product of PFF's advanced grading system, ball location charting, situational charting and ranging advanced statistics, the 2019 QB Annual is now available to all EDGE and ELITE subscribers.
