Loved David Fucillo's article on the subject. Read it a little late and took me a while to do some research. It's buried deep in the comment section so I decided to repost it here with some additional information and analysis. I threw Cam "Fig" Newton in there too.
TD Passes per Game:(including playoffs)
Wilson: 1.6 (advantage)
Before Injury: 1.4
Through 16 games(Kaep’s extrapolated)
Kaep: 4,036 Passing Yards. 735 Rushing Yards. 22 Passing td’s. 10 Rushing td’s.(Assuming he wouldn’t get any better)
Luck: 4,374 Passing Yards. 255 Rushing Yards. 23 Passing td’s. 5 Rushing td’s.
Wilson: 3,118 Passing Yards. 489 Rushing Yards. 26 Passing td’s. 4 Rushing td’s.
RG3: 3,284 Passing Yards. 836 Rushing Yards. 22 Passing td’s. 7 Rushing td’s.
Cam: 3,869 Passing Yards. 741 Rushing Yards. 19 Passing td's. 8 Rushing td's.
RG3: 65.0 (advantage)
Before Injury: 67.0 <-- even better
* RG3 was dead last in yards traveled per attempt. 56% of his yards came after the catch, most in the NFL. Almost 60% of his passes went to the backfield. Only 9% of his passes went over 20 yards. That's the 2nd lowest percentage among starters in the NFL(only behind Christian Ponder).
* QBR takes into account statistics about passing, rushing, and all types of turnovers. It also takes into account a "clutch" factor where successful plays are more valuable if the game is on the line rather than the game being a blowout.
RG3: 102.4 (advantage)
Time of Possession
Seahawks: 31:24 (slight advantage)
Points Per Game Given Up:(only games started by these particular players, including playoffs)
Niners: 235 = 23.5 pts/gm
Colts: 411 = 24.1 pts/gm
Seahawks: 289 = 16.0 pts/gm (advantage)
Redskins: 391 = 24.4 pts/gm (0.9 more than SF)
Panthers: 363 = 22.6 pts/gm
*Only included the 10 games Kaepernick started.
I love the people that have the temerity to claim that had RG3 had SF's' defense that he would have taken them to the Super Bowl. San Fransisco, with Kaepernick starting, only gave up 0.9 fewer points per game than Washington's averaged throughout the season. Are they trying to tell me that had the Redskins defense given up 0.9 fewer points per game that they would have been in the Super Bowl? They were that close? Somebody's been eating too much maca.
Points per Game(including playoffs)
Niners: 288 = 28.8 pts/gm (advantage)
Colts: 366 = 21.5 pts/gm
Seahawks: 464 = 25.7 pts/gm
Redskins: 412 = 25.7 pts/gm
With healthy rg3: 312 = 26 pts/gm
Panters: 357 = 22.3 pts/gm
*Sorry to keep mentioning this but this only includes Kaepernick's 10 starts.
Top 5 Most Impressive Individual Performances (personal opinion)
1. Niners vs Patriots
- Gave Patriots 1st December home loss in over a decade(2002)
- Kaepernick averaged one td pass every 6 pass attempts
- Outplaying Brady, in Foxborough, in only his 5th career start
- Kaepernick: 221 yards, 4 TD's, 1 INT
2. Niners vs Packers
- Only qb ever to throw for 250+ yards and 150+ rushing yards in a playoff game.
- NFL record 181 rushing yards for a qb in in any game
- Kaepernick outplayed the reigning MVP to the tune of 444 Total yards, 4 TD's
3. Seahawks vs Falcons
- The game that made me dread the thought of Russell Wilson being in our division for the next decade
- Down 27-7 Wilson leads them all the way back, taking the lead with 25 seconds left in the 4th
- Wilson: 385 yards, 2 TD's, INT, 1 rushing TD
4. Niners vs Falcons
- Spotted the #1 seed Falcons 17 points on the road
- Kaepernick orchestrated the biggest comeback in the history of the NFC CG
- Kaep: 233 yards, 1TD, 127.7 rating
5. Redskins vs Cowboys
- Embarrassed the Cowboys on national television
- RG3: 304 yards, 4 TD's, INT
- Would've been higher if it were against a team that made the playoffs
In the words of the the immortal Jim Ross "WHAT A SLOBBERKNOCKER!" In what may be the most talented group of quarterbacks to come out in back-to-back years, Colin Kaepernick separates himself, however slightly, from the rest. His game averages are, for the most part, better than his young contemporaries while obtaining more team success. Kaepernick did have the most talented team around him but he also had less game experience than the other 3 quarterback's. He didn't start taking the starting reps until Alex Smith went down with an injury. If anything, the fact that Kaepernick came off the bench midseason, with Super Bowl expectations, and zero starting experience makes his accomplishments even more impressive. Our guy is just better than your guy.
