It’s All In The Numbers

It’s all in the numbers

I don’t know how to scout a QB; I’ll leave that one to you guys.  However, I do like looking at the numbers and since I am stat guy I thought I would share with you a key observation.

I want a double digit QB.

What do I mean by this, let’s take a closer look.

Past Super bowl Champion QBs:

–          Aaron Rodgers #12

–          Drew Brees #9

–          Peyton Manning #18

–          Ben Roethlisberger # 7

–          Eli Manning  # 10

–          Tom Brady # 12

Of the six QB’s that are listed above 4 of them are a double digit QB. 

Now let’s look at our past Miami Dolphins QB:

–          Dan Marino # 13

–          Duante Culpepper # 8

–          Chad Henne #7

–          AJ Feely #7

–          John Beck #9

–          Matt Moore #8

–          Pat White  #6

–          Chad Pennington #10

The only two QB’s that are on the list that have taken us to the playoffs are Dan Marino; 13 and Chad Pennington 10.  I know it might be a weird stat, and there are other exceptions to the rule, but there has to be something to this logic.  Even though I never had the privilege to watch Bob Griese play,  he was also a double digit QB.  Griese wore 12 and he was our starting QB the last time we made it to and won the Super Bowl.

The good news in all of this, we are in a prime position to obtain a top five pick in this upcoming draft and the highly regarded number one prospect in the draft, Andrew Luck…he wears 12.  Last time a Dolphin QB wore that number we went to the big dance.

Numbers don’t lie….
