Just to throw a kink in your chain. Jake is rated the second worse QB in the playoffs, next to Jackson. What'dya say to that?

(They also rated our DB's second best and our Special Teams first, if that says anything.)

It says those rankings are stupid..though they were basing it off of regular season performances methinks.

He has the 3rd highest rating in post-season history. It is no secret he turns it up in the post-season.

Also, I don't think QB rating is a useless stat or anything. Though I think it's fair to qualify the stat to keep it in perspective.

Do you really think that either of those guys give a sh*t if they are better than Marino or not?

They have a ring and he doesn't, and I can pretty much bet you Marino would rather be a little less "good" and have that ring, than be an all time great and not have one.

I'm sure they would rather have Marino's money. The money he got for being so damn good.

Yeah like talent around the guy. The top 3 were/are all good, but they were surrounded by lots of offensive talent their entire careers. They might still all have good career ratings if they were on less offensively talented teams but likely not that high. Besides my having watched them play for years, Pennington's and Brady's top rankings tell me how good they really are though because other than 2007, Brady never had top weapons and Penny never had great weapons.

Career passer rating is a good stat but not when used out of context. Guys like Elway started off pretty poor and steadily got better. His last year was a 93 ratig with 22 TDs and 10 Ints. His first year was a 54.9 with 7 TDs and 14 Ints. Career wise he is an 80.

Jake is at 85 this year and has never been below 80 for a season. What seriously separates them is that Elway had a few great years his last several years and 2 super bowls. If Jake wants to consider himself in the same category he has to come up big in the playoffs and win the big one. And then do it again next year. Then we can begin to make comparisons. Otherwise, not so much.
