ESPN's Total QBR was supposed to be the ultimate rating that quantified the most complicated position in sports. Instead, it more or less disappeared except on ESPN's website. What happened? Really good article by Aaron Gordon, and I'm not just saying that because I'm quoted a lot in it, although it does feature my "proprietary stats as ham sandwich" metaphor, which I think I've used in five or six different conversations since I did the interview for this article.

"Last team with the ball wins" is a cliche, but sometimes cliches are the best way to get across the central narrative of an important game. If you like great quarterback play, you have to watch the NFC Championship Game.
