I often hear in the Manning vs. Brady discussions the blanket statement that Manning's benefitted from playing indoors his whole career. It's true, he has played indoors, and it's true that his home QB rating (I know, I'ld love to use DVOA or DYAR but I don't know how to access splits like that) is better than his road rating. However, most QB's have better home than road ratings. Here is my question, one that I haven't found any statistical proof for:
Do QB's universally perform better in domes than outside, when all other factors are considered? By "other factors," I mean does a QB on the road perform better on the road in a dome versus on the road outdoors, etc?
It seems like they would, but lots of things "seem" like they should happen, but statistically don't. Anyone have concrete evidence on this? I am hoping to find out if the many blanket statements made by folks in the BvP debate are actually right about this assumption statistically.
Thanks in advance.
