2012 Won Divisional Playoffs (Texans) 41–28 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?
