After reading this, I decided to do a little research. Didn't come up with anything relevant, but I did notice something.
Only 5 top ten QBs, in passing yards, were in the play offs. Brady, Ryan, Manning, Luck, Rogers..... Four of the 5 made it to the divisional round. 2 made it to the Conference Championship round. None of them made it to the Super Bowl.
Same stats, only 2 top 5 QBs were in the play offs. Brady & Ryan. both made it to the Conference Championship.
The top 3 QBs from 2012, Brees, Stafford, Romo, were on non winning teams (Cowboys 8-8 was the best of the bunch). The top 10 QBs that didn't make the play offs, Brees, Stafford, Romo, Freeman, Palmer, Also on losing teams.
Doesn't mean anything...... just thought it was interesting.
