"Lets get away from the stats L.T. and lets just go to the eye test. And yes, this is the best Tom Brady has looked in his career because I've seen him drag the 31st rated defense to the Super Bowl and if Wes Welker makes that catch, we're talking about a fourth championship -- putting him with Joe Montana. What he did last night, it didn't matter -- in the wind, with the wind, down 24, 280 yards being rushed on the other side of the ball -- I'm going to will my team to win. Just give me the ball back defense." -Warren Sapp
Notice how the first words out of Sapp's mouth were to insist that they "get away from the stats" -- which shouldn't surprise anyone. He's at least aware of the fact that despite being productive in three out of eleven games this season, Brady has been playing the worst football of his entire career. The QBS has evaluated Brady's 2013 season in totality thus far and the results are not pretty. Brady peaked in 2007 when he became the only quarterback in history to ever produce a perfect QBS of 40.0. Now eleven games into this season, his QBS stands at an abysmal 3.0.
Tom Brady (2013 QBS: 3.0)
- 9th in passing yards.
- 10th in touchdown passes.
- 23rd in completion percentage.
- 18th in adjusted net yards per attempt.
- 19th in passer rating.
- 14th in ESPN's QBR.
While casual fans will likely brush by such stupidity and nod their heads at these broken statements, you can't help but be concerned with the alleged "expert analysis" being provided to official NFL programming. While the sensationalism may be right in line with what the masses want to hear, it's so far removed from reality that it only further enables millions of people to live in dream land.
