From the same football math nerds that brought us the Stanzi/Brady comparison comes this surprise. Calm down and take a deep breath, Stanzi haters. Nobody is saying he's better than Luck....just that the metrics they use give him a higher score. This isn't to make an argument, just for fun!
"The 2011 QB Class in Review
The modified formula applied to the 2011 QB class, here is our top-10 right now with the new formula:
1) 1.050 = Ricky Stanzi...Stanzi still stands at the top, which is highly controversial, and we'll see how this turns out. Obviously, Stanzi success would be a grand-slam for our research.
2) 1.022 = Andrew Luck...Even though he wasn't in the 2011 NFL Draft, we just had to know! Pre-2011 formula changes, Luck circa-2010 was the highest scoring QB in our system. He has dropped a bit in the adjustments...still a high-probable NFL elite score that we have on him just based on 2010."
