The Football Outsiders Really, Really Love Robert Griffin III

How much do they love the Heisman-winning QB from Baylor?

The Football Outsiders devised some sort of scoring system to rate QBs coming out of college. It’s an intricate formula that involves many variables. Among them – career college games started, career completion rate, difference in passer rating between junior/senior year and run-pass ratio of a QB in his final college season.

Now, the scores:

Peyton Manning (Tennessee): 1,784
Drew Brees (Purdue): 2,190
Philip Rivers (NC State): 2,476

Andrew Luck? He scored just under Manning (1,749). Robert Griffin? He scored higher than … any other QB, ever (2,530). Redskins fans, rejoice!!
