Here's a quick regression which builds on the NFL is a Quarterback's League post from a week ago. The below chart shows Games above .500 in comparison to the starting quarterback's QB rating.
What you notice on the chart is pretty simple. If your Quarterback has a solid QB rating, than chances are your team is in the playoff hunt. What QB ratings miss of course are sacks. Aaron Rodgers is up there in QB rating but he has been sacked 37 times which has been a strong contributing factor to their 4-4 record. The player with the best QB rating on a team below .500 is Matt Hasselbeck who missed several games, all losses. Matt Ryan holds the lowest QB rating for a team above .500 and we will credit that to Michael Turner.
