2012 Broncos Season Review: Quarterbacks

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

The 2012 season is over for the Broncos and many have begun turning to free agency and draft talk but before that happened I wanted to review the Broncos position by position. This is purely looking back on the production of each player in 2012, this is not a discussion about what players I think should stay or go. Instead I want to present the data on the 2012 season before we start making decisions about what should change.

To start we'll jump right in with the quarterbacks.

Basic Info

So in this table we'll be looking at a few topics
- Name of the player
- Their current age
- Snaps played during the 2012 season
- Games they saw at least one snap
- Their record when they started a game
- Years left on their contract

By Direction

Now I'll be combining all quarterbacks for these tables since Manning just took such a massive majority of snaps it's pretty much just looking at Peyton. So we'll be looking at this is a few ways. We'll be breaking it down in the three directions:

- Left of the numbers
- Between the numbers
- Right of the numbers

Within these three directions we'll be looking at various distances:

- 0-9 yards
- 10-19 yards
- 20 or more yards

It's important to note this is purely looking at the distance and direction the ball goes in the air, so a pass that goes 4 yards in the air but the receiver then runs it for 25 yards, that's still under the 0-9 yards category. I also excluded screens and passes that were behind the line of scrimmage since those are so greatly affected by things outside the quarterbacks control.

Left - Outside the Numbers:

Notes:

- Not really much to note here, Hanie didn't see any playing time and Manning say nearly every snap
- Osweiler really only saw playing time in just one game at the end of the season
- Peyton was good, um... yea not much to note here, for the first year in a long time
- Peyton struggled when throwing in the middle of the field at any depth
