Hmmmm... There is much speculation on whether or not we should go after free agent Quarterback Jason Campbell. Well to put it in perspective for you all, I figured out what would have happened if Jason Campbell was our quarterback last year. So my thoughts on it were: To have wins, you must score points, to score points, you must be able to move the ball and score touchdowns. So, basically, I averaged up his career statistics and put emphasis on mainly his shortened 2011 numbers. More details after the jump
We all know how to do a ratio. (Or do we? Well, I'll show you anyway. Math lesson of the day!)
Win Percentage Touchdown Ratio
__________________ = ____________________
.62721893X = .63740958
Divide both side by .62721893
And you grand total is… X = a win percentage of 1.00608502 which is equal to and 8-8 record. Thus, pushing us in front of the division-winning Broncos.
Side note: The Chiefs save 15 million by going with Campbell instead of Orton, Cassel, and Palko
Put it in perspective: If Jason Campbell could lead last years Chiefs to an 8-8 record and a playoff berth, imagine what he could do with Charles, Berry, and Moeaki with him.
Now I know these numbers aren't official, but I think they are realistic. Let me know what you guys think, I might do another one. Suggest some players.
