The top two spots belong to none other than Tom Brady. After that it's a menagerie of one-year wonders and Hall-of-Famers rounding out the top 14. It is evenly split 7 Hall-of-Fame or Great QBs (Aaron Rodgers is one) and 7 One Year Wonders.
Thanks to tonight's open game thread and some arguments I decided to dig around and see just what this touted 27/7 TD/INT Ratio means historically. I believe Matt_Grbac asked me "to show him a QB with a similar ratio that led his team to the playoffs". So Matt_Grbac this is for you... Matt Cassel's 2010 TD/INT Ratio is 14th all-time...More after the Jump...
|Name (Overall T/D INT Rnk)||Team||Year||Comp%||TD||INT||Ratio||Yards||Rating||Team Rushing YPG (Rank)||Team Record (*=playoffs)|
|David Garrard (3)||JAX||2007||64||18||3||6||2509||102.2||149.4 (2)||11-5*|
|Steve DeBerg (4)||KC||1990||58.1||23||4||5.8||3444||96.3||121.8(10)||11-5*|
|Brian Griese (6)||Den||2000||64.3||19||4||4.8||2688||102.9||144.4(3)||11-5*|
|Steve Bartkowski (8)||ATL||1983||63.4||22||5||4.4||3167||97.6||139(11)||7-9|
Now my commentary. Notice none of those guys are HOF unless you think Vinny T will make it on longevity alone. Notice also all except one had as good a team record as Cassel and all had top 15 rush offenses. Also notice none of them had as good of a rushing offense as the 2010 KC Chiefs. Of the seven players listed Cassel is 6th in Completion Percentage and 7th in rating. In fact if you check hte link and go down the list he is 16th in QB Rating of the top 20 all-time.
Bottom line for me, he is closer to Steve DeBerg, Brian Griese and David Garrard than Tom Brady. So here are the stats that to me show that the 27/7 TD/INT Ratio definitively means nothing going forward and that based on his peripheral stats it is highly unlikely he'll ever come close to duplicating that number again.Rams vs Chiefs recapKansas City Chiefs
