    Yep, rookie qb's tend to run more than vets. 1) because they can (bodies are in the best shape they are going to be), 2) because they are not comfortable in reading defenses yet, 3) because they are not comfortable running the offense and in our case, 4) because they have poor pass protection and are forced out of the pocket early and often.

    One would tend to be the latter, which is a direct result of how good the QB, OL & WR's are.

    There is no way to measure the QB's success without taking into account the QB's talent.

    As it is, t sounds like it leaves the door open for someone to claim Luck or RGBIII would have done worse than Ponder if they were on our team.
    The only meaningful metric to measure success, especially with a QB is by wins and losses. That is the way I interpreted the question, and the way I answered it. If you want to have a meaningless discussion on the stats recorded by a QB, regardless if it helped his team win, then the only thing even close to relevant is the QB rating.

    If Ponder goes 6-10 with a 78 QB rating and Luck goes 4-12 with an 85 QB rating, who had more success. I say Ponder.
