Bronco QB Stats: a comparison

Let me say first off, that stats don't always tell the whole story. However, for those of us who can't attend practices, stats provide our best evidence of good or poor performance. I've assembled a few stats from our 3 QBs, which may give us a more objective view of them as players. Past performance doesn't guarantee future success, but it sure is indicative.

First we'll look at the preseason.

Interesting but we'll spend more time looking at the regular season comparisons.

 

For the sake of fairness, we'll compare only the last 3 starts of our 3 QBs. We'll take a "what have you done lately?" kind of approach. If Tebow was a veteran like O & Q we could include more starts, but he isn't, so we can't.

Most of these categories are self explanatory except the last one. "Prod Rate" is the same as the NFL passer rating except it uses the total yards, total Tds, and total Turnovers. It is a more accurate assessment of a QB total game, which is especially critical when evaluating a QB that can run. Of course pass rating evaluates the pocket passing, whereas the prod rate is looking at the whole package. 

I'd hate to pass judgement, but it seems pretty obvious who our best option is. What do you think?

ps Note also that for Orton this is looking at starts 65, 66, 67; for Quinn it's starts 9, 10, 11; for Tebow 1, 2, 3.
