It seems a developing storyline this year is about how bad quarterback play is in the league. I was skeptical of that assessment and decided to undertake a comprehensive study of the issue. Two weeks later, my study is not started, but Peter Schrager does some quick work by comparing passer ratings across the past 15 years. Anybody who grew up in Indianapolis during the Mike Pagel, Jack Trudeau, Jeff George years is not surprised by the results.

Short-yardage passing had a good year, except at the end of the Super Bowl. We look at the return of quarterback runs, the rise in pass-happy strategy, and 2014 success rates for offense and defense.
