QB Shuffle: Week 4 Notes (continued...)


The New Orleans game was a missed opportunity for the Jets. With their defense playing great, Sanchez’ critical mistakes literally cost them the game. If only Sanchez submitted a C+ effort instead of a F, the Jets would have probably won that game.

I’m hoping Sanchez has a short memory.

The next four games for the Jets are very winnable (@Miami, vs. Buffalo, @Oakland, vs. Miami). I’m expecting the Jets to go at least 3-1 during that stretch, giving them a 6-2 record going into their bye. If the Jets are for real, they should win all four.

Confidence Scale (out of 10): 8.0- A tad rattled, but hopefully playing Chad Henne (who took 6 sacks in his debut - a home blow-out win over Buffalo), should be a recipe for success for the Jets.


Based on my Fourcade formula, here are the top 5 and bottom 5 quarterback performances from week 4.

1) David Garrard: 323 yards, 3 touchdowns
2) Ben Roethlisberger: 333 yards, 2 touchdowns + clutch performance
3) Brett Favre: 271 yards, 3 touchdowns
4) Peyton Manning: 353 yards, 2 touchdowns, 1 interception
5) Eli Manning: 292 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception


24) JaMarcus Russell: 128 yards
25) Josh Johnson: 106 yards, 1 touchdown, 1 interception + non-clutch performance
26) Trent Edwards: 192 yards, 1 touchdown, 3 interceptions
27) Kyle Boller: 108 yards, 1 interception
28) Mark Sanchez: 138 yards, 3 interceptions


Based on my Fourcade formula, here are the grades for quarterbacks who have started at least three games through Week 4:

A+: Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Eli Manning, Brett Favre, Kyle Orton, Joe Flacco, Tom Brady, Jay Cutler

A: Shaun Hill, Matt Ryan, Carson Palmer

B+: Mark Sanchez

B: Philip Rivers, Aaron Rodgers, Matt Schaub, Ben Roethlisberger

C+: David Garrard

C: Tony Romo, Jason Campbell

D: Kurt Warner

F: Trent Edwards, Matthew Stafford, JaMarcus Russell, Byron Leftwich, Matt Cassel, Kerry Collins, Marc Bulger, Chad Pennington, Jake Delhomme, Brady Quinn


  1. Have you watched any of the Dallas games...Tony Romo is a U- at best!

  2. Why does Bulger still have a job? WHY?
