    Stop it, MJG... Common sense isn't allowed in this thread.
    Check my reply to MJG. Ben's stats are comparable to Marino's.
    The ints are close (Ben's are slightly worse) and the rating is similar (Ben's is slightly better), but, the TDs are significantly different. That's why Marino should be ahead of Ben... and if he's #9, Ben is behind him... and best case, #10.

    A better look at the TD numbers.

    Marino had more TDs in 4 fewer games.... Nearly a TD per game more.

    20 in 9 games... that's over 2.2 per game...
    17 in 13 games... 1.3 per game.

    That's not comparable, at all. One guy was on pace for 35.5 over a 16 game season. That's a pro bowl pace. The other was on pace for 20.8. That's average.
    But you're only looking at one stat. BTW, the stats I selected to compare were the ones that Total Acess displayed when they announced Marino at #9. Just so you know I didn't come up with them.

    So if I choose to compare only the wins/losses stat, Ben comes out way ahead. Not saying we should do this. Just saying you can't pick one stat (td's in your case) to make a comparison.
    Correction, I'm looking at all the stats that you presented... which are all even, except one. That one is what puts one guy over the other.

    Even passing yards are fairly close. Statistically (minus TDs) those two had similar seasons.

    And, seriously... you can't use wins and losses as a "QB" stat... there's 21 other starters (and some special teams guys) who also might have some say as to whether a team wins or loses.

    Then why do announcers, coaches and cheerleaders all say that "So and so is 21-10 as a starter"? Clearly, someone believes that W/L are in large part attributed to the quarterback.

    Exactly. Its like a pitcher in that other game that we're forced to watch during the summer until football season starts Yeah, the entire team is responsible for wins and losses but the pitchers are the only players with personal w/l records. Because like qbs, their play generally determines the success of the team.

    Also, SOD, if w/l's weren't important, then why did Total Access present that as one of Marino's qualifying "stats" to get on the Top Ten list?

    Precisely... plus an early exit in the playoffs.

    I don't want to anger the ninjas ... but I wouldn't consider losing in the afccg an early exit.

    Premature exit due to cheating by the dooshbag Patriots - absolutely

    And in my opinion (see above replies) I think Ben's stats are comparable to Marino's.
