TEXANS’ SCHAUB HAS ALL-TIME RECORD WEEK; P.MANNING TAKES OVER SEASON LEAD
Big week and big news in The Miami Herald’s Passer Success System (PASS) quarterback rankings. The Texans’ Matt Schaub captured the Week 11 title with an all-time record 71.35 points. That’s the best in the 15 years of the chart, topping the previous high of 66.00 points by Tom Brady in 2009. And at the top of the chart, Peyton Manning overtakes Matt Ryan for the season lead. With byes now out of the way, it is looking like a four- or perhaps five-man race for the season crown. Meantime Dolphin Ryan Tannehill falls two spots to 27th place. Our rankings use a simple formula unchanged since their inception in 1998, factoring accuracy, yardage, TD/INT ratio and team result. Most ratings including the NFL’s are complicated and percent-based, allowing a player to miss half a season injured and still win a title, while ours are cumulative and place a premium on productive QBs who avoid injury or benching. Our updated 2012 rankings appear in this space every Sunday.
