I can see Stafford having multiple 5k yard seasons throughout his career, but the Lions might miss the playoffs. So what's the value in that exactly?
That doesn't make sense to me. How can you admit it's a team game, then say that is exactly why you argue wins/loses for QB's?
The QB can only do his part. If Flacco played awesome and didn't win because the rest of his team didn't make the plays, I wouldn't value Flacco any more or any less because of the outcome of the game.
Like last year. Flacco did his job vs. Patriots....but they lost. I valued his performance for what it was, not what the outcome of the game was.
