2007 Won Divisional Playoffs (Jaguars) 3120 david gerrard 1st year starter
2007 Won Conference Championship (Chargers) 2112 philip rivers 2nd year starter
2011 Won Divisional Playoffs (Broncos) 4510 tim tebow. 1st year... dont know if you can actually call him a "starter" qb w/o insulting every other qb to start a game.
2011 Won Conference Championship (Ravens) 2320 joe flacco grossly outplayed the choker 2 years in a row and actually won a SB
2012 Won Divisional Playoffs (Texans) 4128 TJ Yates- 1st year starter has only started 6 games in his career
2013 Won Divisional Playoffs (Colts) 43-22 andrew luck- 2nd year starter
This is an interesting point of discussion/dissection.

If we did break down each QB's playoff victories vs. competition, what would that show? Fascinating thought.

We'd need someone with access to DVOA to go back and pull the AV of each QB and DVOA of their team since... 2001?

Where's Bill Barnwell when you need him?
