Examining Qb Play (Based On Pressure)

Would rather this not turn into another Flacco vs Ryan thread but it will. I wanted to focus on how the new OL could make Matt Ryan either insanely good (one might even say elite) or a non factor.

Ok so basically:

When facing no pressure, Matt Ryan is an animal. Ranked third among the QBs.

When facing pressure, Matt Ryan is... Unranked. It's actually kind of sad to see that lol. Most of the mobile QBs were great against pressure.

Looking deeper now...

Facing pressure from Left Tackle? Ranked 11th

Pressured from left guard? He's ranked number 1.

Pressured from center and right guard? Unranked

Pressured from right tackle? 2.

Matt Ryan really struggled when pressured from the LT spot, the center spot, and the right guard spot. Do you think Konz/whoever is playing RG will do a better job than last year's unit?

This list proves that if the OL steps it up, we'll be REALLY hard to stop.

That article makes no sense, Brett Favre, Trent Edwards, Kitna, Delhomme and McNabb in there really? Every QB struggles differently from pressure depending on the over personnel on the line, scheme and skill set. Brees struggles more if the pressure is from inside than from the tackles.

What exactly is their formula for the PFF grade? Rating shouldn't go into it, because it's based too much on TDs which for an individual player aren't that significant, but I think it is. Manning bests Ryan in every area for pressure from left guard, except TDs. The separation is based on 6 plays, it's a purely situational thing that Ryan made good plays near the goal line, when pressure happened from that spot. Overall performance is much better to go on, Manning was sacked nearly half as much, better comp. %, more YPA etc..........How is Big Ben even ranked in pressure from right guard? Sacked 1 of every 6 plays, completing barely half his passes, average YPA. He's terrible under that kind of pressure according to those stats............................Those are just 2 examples, this list appears to have a highly flawed criteria.

The lists are based on what QB performs the best in a specific area. If those QBs legitimately are better in one particular pressure area, they'd be on the list. This list is not about best overall QBs, it's dividing each category. It makes perfect sense that a QB with a bad rep could make 1 of the lists, coordinators would realize what pressure areas he struggles with and attack those more.....The bad part about it is that the criteria for determining the best appears to be very flawed.

Correction.

Pressure from LT, Matt Ryan is dead last. That article is showing top 5 and bottom 5, but in the LT section they showed bottom 5 so they could mention Peyton Manning. Pressure from C or RG Matt isn't mentioned, so he could be anywhere from 6th best to 6th worst.
