This one's for A-Dub

I have to say, NOBODY saw this coming....including myself. And I know nobody on MCM did. Especially A-Dub!!
Meanwhile, the most important stat in football is something that the Cold, Hard Football Facts call Real Quarterback Rating– it’s basically passer rating, but accounting for all aspects of the position, not just passing. Real Quarterback Rating also measures rushing, sacks, fumbles, rushing TDs, etc.

Teams better at Real Quarterback Rating win an incredible 89 percent of all NFL games. There is not better stat in football, period. (You can read more about the indicator, including the rankings of each team each week, at CHFF Insider.)

And, well, do you know who’s a master of Real QB Rating week in and week out?

That’s right, Tim Tebow. Here’s a look at how Tebow stacked up in Real QB Rating against each opponent he’s faced this year.

Week 7—Denver 18, Miami 15
Matt Moore: 69.6 Real QB Rating

Real QB Rating advantage:Tebow (+25.6)

Week 12—Denver 16, San Diego 13
Philip Rivers: 68.8 Real QB Rating
Tim Tebow: 94.4 Real QB Rating

Real QB Rating advantage:Tebow (+25.6)

Week 13 – Denver 35, Minnesota 32
Christian Ponder: 75.9 Real QB Rating
Tim Tebow: 123.5 Real QB Rating

Real QB Rating advantage:Tebow (+47.6)

Notice a trend here, folks? The Broncos are 6-0 when Tebow outplays the other quarterback. They’re 0-1 when he’s outplayed by the other quarterback This is how the NFL works – you win with superior play at QB. Armed with this information, you quickly realize that the Tebow phenomenon is no statistical mystery.

He may not pass the ball 40 times a game. But who cares? He’s consistently the most efficient quarterback on the field, the one most likely to get the ball in the end zone and least likely to turn it over. And that’s why Denver has suddenly won six of its last seven games.
