Stat Geeks: Matt Stafford, Ryan Tannehill Better Than Tom Brady

January 14th, 2022


Boy oh boy, for the debut of a new stat, this may be worse trash than passer rating.

The nerds over at NextGen Stats decided to invent a new stat called “Passing Score” rating. And already Joe has dismissed the relevance outright. Why?

Well, anyone, unless they are smashed from drinking one too many Bromosas, who tries to con Joe into believing Matt Stafford and/or Ryan Tannehill are better quarterbacks than Tom Brady or Pat Mahomes, well, that is just straight nonsense. That’s all there is to it.

Even the premise of the stat is flawed. Its description states intangibles and leadership, among other high-valued quarterback traits, are given too much weight in determining how good or valuable a quarterback is.

That’s just flat out bulls(p)it from math geeks who are triggered because they cannot slap a GD number on emotions, intelligence or leadership.  Does anyone who isn’t stoned believe that Tannehill adds more value to the Titans than Brady does the Bucs? Seriously?

Brady single-handedly turned this Bucs franchise around when he arrived last year. It’s not even a debate. Standards were raised. Expectations set. Results demanded. All because No. 12 showed up. We saw it first-hand. It’s not a fairy tale (though Joe sometimes wonders if he is living a fairy tale that features Brady as the Bucs’ quarterback).

So that’s overrated?

Look, as Joe’s good friend, the late-great “Big Dog,” Steve Duemig, used to say, if these numbers geeks were so smart they’d be raking in riches in Vegas and not have to slave for Roger Goodell in a drab cubicle across the parking lot from SoFi Stadium.

Just like in passer ratings, the gibberish that ranks Matt Schaub and Marcus Mariota ahead of Dan Marino, Jim Kelly or Roger Staubach, this “Passing Score” stat is already a steaming pile of feces for Joe.

Tannehill and Stafford more valuable than Brady? Joe’s arse!

Give Joe a friggin’ break!

  2. Swampbuc Says:

    That is the worst statted up load of hogwash since people around Bucland were trying to say that Mike Glennon was a good starting quarterback for the Bucs.

    Complete kaka.

    Right! This is why workplaces sometime employ random drug-testing policies!

  4. Bird Says:

    Thank You for exposing these clowns Joe. It drives me crazy that many fans throw these grades around like its supposed to mean something……..You literally cant even explain what this freaking grade even means. When you start using algebric formulas and trigonometry to uderstand football dont you think theres a chance youre overcomplicting things?

    Your credibility is gone once you precious computer spits out Ryan Tannehill. You couldn’t even convince a diehard Titans fan Tanehill is better!! You can actually see this by watching the games and you need help if you put a computer generated scientific formula over what you can actually see.

    3.7 INT %
    272 ypg

    66.2 Total QBR

    Can somebody please explain how this can be ?

    @Joe just a heads up , passer rating is a better stat than the BSPN stat that is Total QBR

    Next things you know they’ll be adding Fitzpatrick too to this nonsense..🤣🤣🤣

  12. SlyPirate Says:

    The more stats that come out, the more I’m done with stats.

  14. Lamarcus Says:

    I don’t go by stats and never have but I know if that same stat was in Brady favor then it would be praised. Js

    StatGeeks are destroying football like they helped destroy baseball.

    Right, Kevin Cash?

  18. BuucccNASTY Says:

    Geeks gunna geek, nothing you can do to stop it. Nerds….

  19. Oneilbuc Says:

    Fantasy football is what destroying football !!

  20. Joe Says:

    Joe just a heads up , passer rating is a better stat than the BSPN stat that is Total QBR

    Bill Polian said he used QBR often. Good enough for Joe.

    Passer rating is a slap in the face to any thinking football fan.

    Ask the chargers coach about these analytics and new stats. I watched him lose 3 games with his go for it on 4th down instead of taking three. They should be at worst 12-5 and enjoying a home playoff game of not the number 1 seed. But the head coach likes to overthink a simple sport. He called a timeout when the raiders were content on ending in a tie. He by one hand gesture making a T. Cost his team and fans a playoff game by over thinking it. Just like all these stupid stat sites. And like the all pro voting team. A qbS team ties for the best record in football. Leads the league in almost every qb stat. Despite losing 2 of his top three receivers and the top running back. Yet he isn’t first team all pro. But a guy with lesser satay almost 1,000 less passing yards

  22. bucschamp Says:

    dear Tom, Tannehil is better than you!
    I repeat , Tannehil is better than you!!!

  23. alaskabuc Says:

    TB12 led the league in passing touchdowns and that is the only “passing score” statistic I care about.

  24. Buczilla Says:

    Pure silliness. Seemingly sane people pay these morons good money for their modern day snake oil too.

  25. Anonymous Says:

    The only component that is relevant in their computation is:
    Represent the most indicative features of winning football games.
    – and that consists of producing td’s and don’t turn it over…

    The only component of their evaluations that is relevant is:
    Represent the most indicative features of winning football games.
    – and that consists of producing td’s and minimizing turnovers.

    Tannehillll??? That’s laughable.
    For what Stafford did this year with LA compared to what Brady did this year, it’s in the same ballpark at least. Stafford was great this year, still had too many INTs with 100 less attempts, but the completion rate and TDs were right there.
    But if they’re allegedly calculating in leadership, they have no argument for anyone over Brady, EVER
