What the Statistical Wizards at Harvard Think of the Washington Redskins Trade to Get Robert Griffin

Read it and weep, Redskins fans:

“For the Redskins to get the equivalent value from RGIII as they spent acquiring him, he must produce at least as much as Tom Brady. If RGIII merely lives up to his eCAVOA, he’ll finish his career having slightly outperformed David Garrard (61 CAV). Because all-time-great quarterbacks are rare commodities, the Redskins likely lost value both on paper and in reality.”

No, I don’t understand the eCAVOA formula. I’m sure the title-starved Beltway crowd would settle for a Mark Rypien or Doug Williams career arc. [The Harvard Sports Analysis Collective]
